You're talking about eating at McDonalds for 4 weeks?

Dont do it, that food is obviously very unhealthy...

I agree, I don't think the Supersize Me guy gave his body a chance to adjust. dave tate told me he ate McDonald's everyday for 13 years before he had any problems. You just need to commit to it. It'll take a while for your body to adjust.

I suggest this approach.

1. Eat it every 3rd day for 2 weeks. This will get it into your system. If your stomach reacts poorly, buy baby wipes. If you're skinny, you have yet to understand the importance of these moist little guys.

2. After 2 weeks, start to eat it every other day. Now, you can start adding on to your order. Instaed of just the 31 get some McNuggets, too.

3. Once you feel big and strong (approx 4 weeks of God's food) start eating it M-F. By this point, if you're training with any sort of intensity and have a decent plan, you'll start to see all of your lifts go up. Now, if you're a BB, PL, or Strongman, lifting heavier helps. More weight = more muscle = more strength. It all makes sense.

4. When you really feel like you're stalling and not making progress, add in a McDonald's breakfast before training. If you train at night, a double cheeseburger or 2 before the gym will supply you with all the energy and calories you'll need for a great training session. If you have trouble eating big before the gym, just skip the post-workout shake (they're a waste of time anyways) and get your 2 double cheeseburgers. The post-workout feeding is better because you're more likely to eat big after training.

5. This is very important. There will be times when your body just doesn't feel good. You may start craving salads (healthy foods). Don't ignore this. Give your body what it wants. I find that when I get these cravings, one good salad as an appetizer really goes a long way towards making me feel good again. I recommend you folow up the salad with a very high fat, high calorie dinner. I like 99 restaurants. i usually get the Country Fried Chicken drizzled with honey, with Mashed Potatoes. Skip the vegetables. You already had a salad. Don't negate your progress. This is a sign that you need to look for. When you get to the point where a salad will give you heartburn, you're on track! Be proud of yourself. This is a sign that you have conditioned your body to eat McDpnalds everyday. Few people can achieve this lofty goal and you should feel very proud of yourself.

I hope this gave you guys some ideas on how to overcome the initial shock of reintroducing the food of the iron god's into your diet. If you're trying to get big and strong, follow this and you will be big. If you're on a cut, I give you strength and focus to follow thru with it. But, when you're done cutting, get back on the wagon to greatness.

Go forth, and eat...

Weight gainer shakes don't work that well. I've never had great success with supplements. It's an industry full of $hit. Nothing really works besides eating good old fashioned whole food and steroids. No supplement out there is really worth much. That's wh ythey're called supplements. They're good if you have to miss a meal, but really, you are wasting so much money.

McDonald's on the other hand, is the food for strength. Whoever gets fat and sloppy while eating McDonald's has no clue about training. Sorry, but it's all about how hard you train. Trouble is, most people workout,not train.

Workout = average
Train = elite

Not many people know what that means. If you're wondering whether you workout or train, you workout. Those that know what it means know that they are training and don't question themselves.

Rhodes, aside from weight gainers what are your thoughts on just plain old whey protien shakes? I usually add a bunch of s*** into my shakes like peanut butter and stuff too, but the only actual supplement is the protien powder. Do you think they're a waste of money too?

Just wondering what your thoughts on them are, because I do go through a 5 lb. tub of that s*** every month. I just can't seem to get enough protien without it (okay I'm just too lazy to try). They're really conveinient though.

Liquid calories are fine... they just digest faster. As well, people tend not to eat fruits and veggies if just using weight gainers..

Our bodies are designed to eat dead animals and fruits. That's what the cavemen ate. Our digestive systems haven't evolved to a liquid calorie diet. We just make them work that way.

It doesn't make sense to me, either, but as soon as I drop shakes, my weight usually goes up. As long as carbs are high, protein doesn't need to be nearly as high as people think. Obviously, things are different if you're cutting weight or geting ready for a contest.

I eat fast food about 5 times a week during lunchtime and want to know why eating it will make your body sloppy and soft. Is it the excess calories being converted to fat or some other explanation?

If someone can provide some information relating the consumption of fast food to increased bodyfat then I may think twice about eating it.

Also, does anybody else eat the chili from Wendy's? It has a lot of beans, vegetables and meat and it tastes pretty good.

Thanks.

Skip the vegetables. You already had a salad.

This was a particularly funny line.

Alright, I get it, Rhodes, this is a pretty good tongue-in-cheek piece. Would you actually counsel someone to eat McDonalds every day? Your lifts might go up, but at what cost?

I think some people on this board (and no, Rhodes, I'm not singling you out on this one) have this idea that lifting weights = being healthy. "Hell, I deadlifted... I can eat whatever I want tonight! Gimme a baconator and I'll wash it down with a Bako Shake!"

If your only goal is to get enough calories, wahoo, you're doing great. However, I tend to agree with Mr. Rhodes again on this one - I won't go find the quote because I'm too lazy, but it amounts to "humans are meant to eat dead animals and vegetables". I wholly agree with that, Rhodes - the trouble is that dead animals didn't come in easily processed, high-fat content morsels like they do these days.

My $0.02? Keep your McD's to a reasonable intake level. If you have to ask if you're overdoing it, you're overdoing it.

It's all a matter of what's important to you. If my lifts go up, I'll pay a pretty high cost. I have goals to achieve. Those that disagree with my thoughts, probably haven't really ever achieved anything big in their lives.

As for lifting weights and health. Lifting weights is horrible for you. It shortens your muscles, messes with the alignment of your spine and other weight-bearing joints, it rips muscle, and breaks down your body. Nothing healthy about that at all. The rest is what builds your body back. So, all of you that think weightlifting is good for you are wrong. It tears you apart. It's all the rest that builds you back up. That's why the supplement companies make so much money on people trying to recover from workouts.

And, yes, if someone were trying to eat McDonald's on a daily basis, I would recommend my protocol. Just like anything, you have to ease into it. That lessens the chance of a bad reaction.

Weightlifting != healthy lifestyle. Lifting weights is a PART of a healthy lifestyle. If you lift heavy weights and train your ass off but eat Taco Bell for every meal every day, don't expect to live a long and prosperous life.

I've read some of your other posts and you say that people grossly overthink the whole eating thing. I tend to agree with this and would like to supply my own corollary - people grossly overthink the whole healthy thing. Eat lots of vegetables, minimize your intake of poisonous substances, exercise, sleep, avoid death. Enjoy along the way. It's actually quite simple.

Blood work is a very inaccurate standard of measuring ones over-all health. It has it's place, it's a good diagnostic tool for measuring heart condition but triglyceride levels, LDL:HDL's, and everything "blood-work" reveals is subject to change on a weekly, sometimes daily basis. FAST FOOD IS NOT GOOD FOR YOU, IT WILL NOT MAKE YOU HEALTHY, YOU HAVE YOU HEAD UP YOUR ASS IF YOUR GONNA KEEP ARGUING AGAINST THAT. For a powerlifter, yeah it might get the job done but it won't do your arteries any favors. Rhodes, I wonder if you'll still be a WBB member when you have your inevitable heart attack.

To anyone who's not a powerlifter, it's pretty f***ing easy to put on quality poundage on a healthy diet, I'm in the middle of a bulking cycle right now and I've put on about 12-15 lbs of lbm, with the healthiest diet I can manage. Fast food is fake food.

I know poor grade meat has been mentioned, is this actually a problem?
The food is also high in saturates - but alot of the research behind saturates being bad is quite poor and you should be fine providing your monos and polys are higher(am I right in saying this).

I lol'd so hard, man. I would make this my personal motto in a heartbeat if it made more sense out of context.


Rhodes, aside from weight gainers what are your thoughts on just plain old whey protien shakes? I usually add a bunch of s*** into my shakes like peanut butter and stuff too, but the only actual supplement is the protien powder. Do you think they're a waste of money too?

Just wondering what your thoughts on them are, because I do go through a 5 lb. tub of that s*** every month. I just can't seem to get enough protien without it (okay I'm just too lazy to try). They're really conveinient though.
I'm interested in your opinion on this too, Rhodes. I've heard of big guys consuming 4 shakes a day, and then there are some that don't use any. Is this personal preferance, or do you truly believe that they don't get the job done?

And in the off-chance that you recognize me- yeah, I was one of those kids that tried to disprove you and after a while I realized that every damn thing you said was right on the money. Listen up, kiddies, Rhodes knows his ****.

I think shakes are personal preference. It's easy to get your protein up with shakes. For me, eating 300g of protein a day is really hard and I won't do it. The shakes get me there easily.

I do remember you. I have a mind like a steel trap. I'm just glad my rambling helped you out. It's really a good feeling when you just start to understand how easy this stuff is. I bet your training and motivation to kick ass is way up. Now, you can concentrate on the important things and not worry about the stuff that doesn't really matter.

I understand that, but most people on this site are trying to put on weight and I am guessing when they eat mc donalds, they eat big.

Well, yeah. That's how you get big.
