View Full Version : Hungry man dinners

Was in the store the other day and saw that those hungry man frozen dinners contain 1lb of food which have a little over 800 calories and 32g of protein but also has 44g of fat. Any one here ever eat these or if there anyworse than a quarter pounder from mcdonalds?

There is actually a bodybuilder I know who swears by adding in a hungry man dinner everyday to get the calories in.

I think they're nasty and would probably tolerate just one of their entrees if that.

800 cals? When I for whatever reason glanced at it at the grocery store the other day it was more like 500 cals. Frozen dinners are disgusting and no where near worth eating. I cant imagine how much sodium they have in them either...

You might as well heat up a can of cat food. It will be less soggy and probably uses better quality meat.

Look for the good pot pies. There's a few really good ones that have over 1000 calories and are damn good/use decent ingredients. They're pretty expensive though, so it's better for somebody in my financial situation to just buy some cheap ass fast food.

It's the full daily serving of trans fat that gets me.

Frozen dinners are the devil. Devoid of anything nutritionally beneficial and loaded with artificial crap you don't need. Pretty much like most typical processed supermarket foods.

I read a good saying somewhere about how to eat properly (T-Nation?): "If it comes in a box, don't eat it."

Turns out they contain a little over 1000mg of sodium. That can't be healthy.

Better off just ordering a pizza.
