This is my running count of my trips to mcDonald's. I think it's important to note that God, himself, has decided that McDonald's is the food of champions.

So, my count starts now: 1

Breakfast on Saturday:
Sausage McMuffin w/egg, Hash Brown, coke

Seriously you need to go with sausage egg and cheese on either a biscuit or Mcgriddle. Far superior to the Mcmuffin.

I have to side with Rhodes here, the sausage Mcmuffin is pretty awesome. I do like the Mcgriddle every now and then for a change, but after awhile its too sugary that early in the morning for me

curse my weakness

Damn. All these threads about McDonalds makes me want a sausage biscut with egg and cheese. I think I will stop by McDonalds tomorrow morning before work. Their coffee is damn good also.

I am glad I decided to lift weights. All the food I been eating lately has been a blast. People think I am crazy.:)

See I also use the Mcgriddle as a change of pace sandwich. Its the biscuits that are the money sandwiches.

I'm torn between the biscuits and the mcmuffins, bacon and sausage in rotation though, or one of each.

Tried their bagel ones a couple times and those are decent too, but too expensive to have with regularity.

Are you completely loyal to Mcdonald's? I thought you had to switch up the fast food or something happens to you...I always have to alternate the brands. Most often is Wendy's - 3 spicy chickens from the #6, with 2-3 5 piece nuggets.

How do you feel about McChickens? I'll get about 4 and turn them into 2 double McChickens (carb conscious). This hits the spot as a post-lunch snack for me.

I don't go to McDonalds much at all other than for breakfast. I used to just stop for coffee (cheaper and more convenient than going to stirbukz and ordering a limpy-latte-mocha-chino) but those breakfast sandwiches... McGriddlez and McSkillets... just go sooo good with coffee.

Im in no way offended, opinions are like a**holes, everyone has one. However some just reek more than others.

The guy you are referring to is an elite class lifter and a sponsored athlete/contributor to EFS. Im fairly certain (although this may shock you) that he knows more on this subject than you.

Yes I have joined recently with my 1-0-7 Barbell Bretheren , however I do find it funny that in the time Ive been here, Ive made almost 5 times the posts you have... but maybe Im just not "Nostalgic" and like to post with people of my similar mindset on issues that actually mean something.

But, again, Im not offended

It is Monday, and no McDonald's on the horizon. Although, the DQPC w/BM sauce is calling me. It beckons like the Sirens. I will not, may not, probably will give in to tempatation.

After I eat the burger, I'm going to cover myself in the Big Mac sauce and roll around on my bed. Is that weird?

Hehe... I'm just little and can't eat a whole lot at once. Here's how it will usually go:

1st and 2nd breakfast
1st and 2nd lunch (sometimes one of these will be same as after work snack)
snack after work (dbl cheese + mc chicken)
dinner
before bed snack

By the time I get to Mc D's I'm usually not super hungry, but can get down 1-2 of those things with no problem.

Sometimes after a workout I'll have 3 though.

I just checked the taco bell site. The triple steak burrito is actually 25 grams of fat, 70 grams of carbs, and 37 grams of protein. Just trying to make the correction so no one is mislead.

Not weird at all considering all employees are required by Fast Food Regulations to do the same thing right before they put the special sauce on your burger.

who cares, its not the macros that we're worried about in this...its the fact that fast food is not inherently evil...whteher or not it has 605 kcals, 25 grams of fat, 70 grams of carbs, and 37 grams of protein. Eat big, train hard, and get strong

McChickens are horrid. They scrape up all the worst meat and throw it in a sandwich to make an extra dollar. It's literally the stuff they previously deemed not fit to put into their products. Just look at it when you eat it...it's not really chicken...or even food.

Do you work at McDonald's? i only ask because you seem to know the process by which McChickens are made. And, I know you wouldn't just make something up to prove your point, so what you're saying MUST, in fact, be true. And, I can only ASSUME that you work there based on your statement of fact. Do you get a discount when you work there?

I don't, but my cousin did all the fast food jobs. Certified Grill Technician. I actually stand corrected though, as of 2007 they started using all white meat. Used to be 50% dark meat and 50% white meat leftover from their other chicken products. Never tried them since then.

10-16-2008, 08:48 PM
Nothing is wrong with it, I just think it is gross. I didn't advise against McChicken's. It was just the lowest of their low quality garbage that adds 1000's of easy good tasting cals. I am wondering how the new ones taste though, probably similar to Wendy's dollar menu chicken sandwiches which are a lot worse than their combo versions...for the same reason. It's still the leftover stuff.

I miss the $1 Hot n'Spicy. Oh well, there's always the $1 double cheese burger. It can compromise your health, no matter how much exercise you do. You may not feel the effects now, but depending on your family history, you could see it effect your health later in life, when you are less active. But then again, what doesn't compromise your health nowadays...

With all the trouble I've caused on WBB, I don't think I have the pull to get this done. I'm lucky I haven't been banned.

That does sound like a good idea, though. I'm not much of an eater, though. I can eat a lot throughout the day, but have trouble pounding food at one time. Eating is very hard for me.

I can't believe you guys eat McDonald's, Wendy's, BK, Taco Bell, and the like. That's disgusting! Your health. Oh my god, your cholesterol. This is not the wayt o go about living a healthy, and long life. If you eat this kind of food you might gain weight, get stronger, and have no excuses for why you suck at the gym. This will be very detrimental to your failure as a lifter. If you don't have excuses as to why you're weak, you'll just have to admit you suck.

Sorry skinny guys. That's the longest I could keep up that charade. Eat on, boys. DQPC w/ Big Mac Sauce, fries, 4 piece McNuggets last night. MMMMMMM!

I wanted to jump in here real quick and say that depending on which fast food establishments you go to, some are definately questionable as far as health. I had the unpleasant experience of working in fast food for my first job. I was completely disgusted during training when the employee showed me how "he" made a burger. The dude said "watch closely, this is how you do it". He began by dropping the burger on the floor and kicking it around repetatively. Then he picked it up and said to apply the special sauce which to him was the biggest "lugie" you've ever seen and then he covered it with lettuce and tomatoe. I quit that place after a few days....lol. That was way back in the day but now my daughter has some freinds who work in fast food and they laugh and tell her dumb **** they've done to peoples food too.

I do eat fast food every now and then but I have to try really hard to not think back to that **** before I take a bite. I'm sure that all fast food places don't do it, but I know from experience that some do.

Rhodehouse, I am cleaning up my diet tomorrow morning. No more junk food like DD and BK -- gonna head toward the golden arches for a nutritious meal. My body yearns for real macros.

I just had a Triple Whopper meal myself the other night. I had the meal KING size with Onion Rings and a Coke, and threw in two Whopper Jr's and one Spicy Chicken sandwich as an appetizer, and yes, I ate it ALL. McDonald's is the king, but the onion rings at BK are a nice change of pace; and the 3XL Whopper, well, it's just a thing of beauty.

No, I did not do a study. It's fairly easy to see why the food is handled so poorly. You have extremely low paid individuals who are usually very young, and really have no incentive to take pride in their work. This usually means very poor service and sub-par standards.

Anyone who has ever worked at, or known anybody who has worked at a fast food chain knows what really goes on behind those counters. I'm not saying it's going to stop me from going and getting a baconator if I'm really craving one, but it's something I try to not do too frequently.

Of course fast food is phenomenal for getting big and strong, easy calories that taste awesome. On the other hand, so is steak, chicken, ground beef, pasta, potatoes, olive oil, peanut butter, yams, rice, cottage cheese, milk, etc. etc. and all these are much better for you. I just don't really understand promoting fast food for a healthy lifestyle, when there is clearly tons of evidence proving otherwise (real evidence, not supersize me).

Dude, I'm not giving you advice. For a 320 lbs. man you seem to turn into a little bitch every time someone questions you, what the **** is up with that. I'm wondering why you're telling people that eating McDonald's all the time is healthy, not why you're telling them its good to get big.

You say "I don't lift to be healthy", yet you make a self-contradicting thread called "Rhodes' McDonalds for a healthy lifestyle". I'm sure you've figured out the perfect formula for getting big and strong and I'm not going to question that, but when it comes to general health I'm sure you don't know much more than any other average joe.

If I wanted to be a 300 lbs. powerlifter I would listen to your advice, but I don't. I'm an athlete/bodybuilder/science student at university. I know and accept that you know way more than me about getting big and strong, I just think it's ******ed that you're telling people that there's nothing wrong with eating fast food all day.

Oh and about my avatar, everyone and their dogs put up pictures of their biceps, triceps, abs, etc. I think that is pussy ****. My picture will always either be my back or my legs, because I love squatting and deadlifting. If almost-seeing another dude's junk makes you insecure, that's your problem.

1. No, I have no idea what he does full time.

2. It's an open discussion forum, just because he started the thread doesn't mean he owns it.

3. I never said I didn't want his advice, I'm sure he has lots of good advice to offer in the area of powerlifting.

4. If this thread was about how fast food kicks ass for bulking up, then I agree and probably would have posted a similar response to everyone else, because I actually ate a baconator earlier in the day. But, that's not what this thread is about. It's about "McDonald's for a healthy lifestyle", and up to this point all he has to back that up is that he eats McDonald's and he has a clean bill of health. That a sample size of ONE human being, the case is very different for many others. If anyone can provide proof that eating McDonalds every day long term has no potential to lead to health problems, I'll butt out and let all of you guys continue fellating each other.

Congratulations. There are millions of people who drink alcohol "a few times per week" who are perfectly healthy.

Alcohol is also responsible for approximately 75,000 deaths in this country per year (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6089353/).

Correct me if I'm wrong, but what you and Rhodes are claiming is that since something can be consumed a few times a week with no adverse health effects, then it is 100% healthy under all circumstances. That's clearly false, as we can see with the alcohol analogy above.

I'm actually surprised at how outright offensive some people in this thread are. I'm not sure if it's just their general insecurity, or if they had a bad day-but it's really quite surprising that certain people feel the need to attack others personally when we're talking about fast food. It sort of reminds me of the bully in school that was embarrassed he wasn't intelligent enough to pass 4th grade the first two times, so he picks on other kids.

Rhodes has posted his diet in other threads, and you'd do good to go take a glance at it. It's pretty damn clean with a few dirty meals thrown in when the calories are low. He's stated before that he eats McDs somewhere around 8-10 times a month which equates to a couple of times a week, not the several times a day that you suggested. Furthermore, Rhodes is a funny ass mfer and knows he gets on people's nerves, hence the emphasis on healthy lifestyle in the thread title.

If he's only eating it a couple of times per week, why is the thread titled "Rhodes McDonalds for a healthy lifestyle"?

The thread should be titled "you can eat fast food in moderation and be healthy".

Eating something twice or three times per week is hardly a "lifestyle". It seems as though his only goal is to get a rise out of people and make childish remarks. I think they call that a troll.

I'm not going to troll through all of his posts to find out everything about him, I simply stumbled upon this one and the general idea it's giving off is that it is fine to eat fast food all the time and without health risks. Of course anything in moderation is fine. People should just be led to understand that there are better ways to get in the calories than slamming down fast food every day.

Actually Hockey, he does answer a lot of questions, especially in the PLing forum. Anytime anybody needs anything, he's more than willing to answer.

I am just curious what the thoughts are about Dave Tate and his recent "new birth" about food and his lifting etc? He was a huge fast food imbiber w/ significant lifting ability but his blood work came back with a form to fill out for life insurance and a funeral planner so he shifted EATING but not really his lifting from what I understand.

I am sure you all will come back with WTF is she doing here and who gives a **** about Dave Tate.

Plus, how much muscle DOES saturated and trans fat grow?



Dave's bloodwork was not simply a result of eating fast food. Nor does Dave regret those times. I know he still misses it. He bloated around 20lbs when we all met for a seminar in Boston. He did not want to come in looking lean. He wanted to come in big. He rode ths horse as long as he could. In addition he could no longer compete in powerlifting due to his many previous injuries.

I applaud what he has done with his body. It's hard work. He said he did it because he needs something to focus on in the gym and this was what was left after not being able to compete in pl. However, if you ever had a chance to sit down with him, he is a true fat kid at heart. He loves bad food. He had a great ride while it lasted. It's a shame he was kicked out of Rhodestown. RIP Dave.

Rhodes' journal is one of the top read at Elitefts. I'll tell you why, he knows what he is talking about and he's entertaining. He's a better man than I because when someone does not appreciate my efforts, I just cut them off. Rhodes is very passionate about this stuff.

I read through the thread, and just skimmed it again. The general impression is still that it's alright to eat McDonald's all the time and be healthy and I can't find a post stating that it's only a couple times per week. I think anyone could have been under the same impression, and all I was doing was trying to clear it up. I wasn't questioning his, yours or anyone elses knowledge of how to get big and strong.

Ok, read Rhodes posts (note, not Rhode, its spelled with an s). When he eats at McD's he posts what he eats. In the upper left hand corner, it shows the date and time he posted it. Its not too difficult to notice that there isn't 3 posts per day, or even every day, recording his meals at McDs. Most would assume this is because he doesn't eat there every day.

Yes, because I was really taking the time to do that as I was glancing through this thread and posted my first reply. The title is very misleading, as the word lifestyle makes most people assume that he's eating it every day. When I posted my first question why didn't he, or you, just clear up that it was only a couple times a week instead of verbally attacking me and anyone else who posted the same question. Everyone knows that anything in moderation is, for the most part, safe.

I attacked him?

I said: "Of course fast food is phenomenal for getting big and strong, easy calories that taste awesome. On the other hand, so is steak, chicken, ground beef, pasta, potatoes, olive oil, peanut butter, yams, rice, cottage cheese, milk, etc. etc. and all these are much better for you. I just don't really understand promoting fast food for a healthy lifestyle, when there is clearly tons of evidence proving otherwise (real evidence, not supersize me)."

And he replied by saying I'm barely big enough to be considered a man, and basically told my my opinion was worthless because I haven't had the time to accomplish what he has. Any rational human being can see who's attacking who, I might have been out of line in the backlash, but these forums are so ****ed up now I don't really care.

Youk know, I try to read as much as I can from those that I think know what they are talking about, the delivery to me doesn't matter just the substance. One of the biggest things I have gotten from my readings is the need for comradery amond power lifters, body builders, etc. Either in workout "gangs" lifting buddies or something WBB is supposed to be, on online forum.

Franky, I don't see it here anymore (in my short tenure). The overwhelming way of thinking here is, if you don't lift big numbers you are not worthy and your opinion will get your size and lifts ridiculed. Yes I believe a certain amount of respect should be shown towards those who have some great accomplishments, but it seems a growing number of those at the top rapidly forget they didn't invent or through some diligent scientific research come up with the greatest program in the world to get big and strong, they too stood on the shoulders of someone else to get where they are, just as newer guys and gals are trying to do now.

So, who cares if someone says/thinks eating McDonalds is healthy, one experience is hardly proof for or against. If it works for them, good on em, carry on do what works for you. If don't agree, DON'T do it, if you feel you must disprove them, offer your opinon ONCE and let it be. Just because someone is big and strong and is a championship lifter, doesn't mean every single word or though out of their mouth is gospel, and just because you think you know better than someone else means you have the carte blanche post the same idea OVER AND OVER again. Why is so hard to have a difference of opinion and respect someone elses view on things?

Rhodes has posted his diet in other threads, and you'd do good to go take a glance at it. It's pretty damn clean with a few dirty meals thrown in when the calories are low. He's stated before that he eats McDs somewhere around 8-10 times a month which equates to a couple of times a week, not the several times a day that you suggested. Furthermore, Rhodes is a funny ass mfer and knows he gets on people's nerves, hence the emphasis on healthy lifestyle in the thread title. Just loosen up man and eat a Double Stack because, as I told Rhodes, McDs is just evil and God loves Wendys).

Those criticisms all come down to experience vs opinion. Rhodes has been somewhere. He has done something.
Now, as far as I know there aren't many people that mainly post in the bodybuilding boards and compete. Now I could very easily be wrong but I wouldn't know because they obviously aren't the ones crowing about how if you eat fast food you will get fat and be incredibly unhealthy.
Now if someone who has competed in bodybuilding at a high level wants to start talking about how fast food doesn't work they can. But they won't because it is a sure fire way to get plenty of quick calories on the go.

The Kreuz sausage is the real deal. There are other BBQ places in NYC like Pearson's and Daisy Mays but neither really compares to Hill Country imo.

On the other hand when in Texas, I like Salt Lick.

a couple of thoughts, Hockey69, yes this is an open thread but as stated in the first few comments this is not a thread for people like you who have little to no experience in this sport or as an athlete and who are closed minded about fast food. You have no factual information supporting your claims. I eat fast food, pizza and diner food a few times per week. My blood work and organ functions are fine. I don't weigh 340 because I eat chicken fish rice and oatmeal. As for your avatar...., interesting, your boyfriends must love it. The tranny I was with last weekend had bigger legs than you....

, and quite the package I must add. 5 foot whatever 210..., dude there is nothing big on you.:hump::hump::hump:

That pic was taken when Leo was sixteen years old.

I've trained with him - when he was seventeen and in first year sciences at UBC - by which point the kid had the build of a 25-year old competitive bodybuilder with a few good cycles under his belt. This young man is a phenomenon. Pick on somebody else.

Hell, pick on me if you like. You're bigger than me, too.

PS I freaking LOVE ribs - and there are NO good rib joints in Vancouver anymore. I need me a good recipe.

Chipotle is amazing, however you lose points for not putting up a picture of a burrito bol, seriously it is so much more satisfying then the burrito.

The burrito (tortilla) gives you and extra 340 kcals......so NO a bowl is not more satisfying.... Unless you eat the bowl I guess.......

Smoke, and time.

The rest is really incedental.

The method I use is really basic.

1. Trim the fat off the rack.
2. Put the rack in a make-shift tray or a really deep tray.
3. Cover the ribs in a LIBERAL amount of sauce (Sweet Baby Rays for example or my favorite - Montgomery Inn in Cincinnati).
4. Place tray with ribs in an oven between 250-275 degrees, not going over 300.
5. Bake for approximately 3.5 hours.


It truly sounds too easy to be good but they really turn out delicious. No par-boiling, no grilling, just bake.

I've heard you can use a dry rub if you're into that but I've never done that.

I worked at McDonalds all through high school, we didn't get a discount but we stole our asses off about every day we worked there. I specifically remember this dude I worked with on the sandwich assembly who on a slow day assembled a 7 decker quarter pounder, that's 7 quarter patties with 7 slices of cheese. He actually managed to take a full bite out of it.

You guys ought to go to dairy queen and try their 2/3rd pound double cheese burger, I eat one of those like every other day lol! They are freagin' amazing. They make double quarter pounders from McD seem small.

Hmm, probably has a little more fiber, but that would just be a guess.
I usually just get tacos with extra cheese and hot salsa if i am feeling up to the burn. And an extra taco and chips and extra salsa for those too.

So, my little trolls - Bracken and hockey boy. You seem to be the only 2 that had something to say.

I don't know or care who said what. But, here it is. Numbers get thrown out there because this is a weightlifting forum. The idea is to get bigger and stronger. There is really no other reason to train. If you have other rreasons, then you must workout. There is a difference. Numbers wil be put out there because it's real world experience that's doing the talking. At 18 years old and 205lbs - I can't say what I want to, so I'll say this. If I held you up to a light, I'd be able to see what you ate for lunch. That's not good.

I've established myself in this game. You 2 have done nothing, yet. Maybe you will. The fact is, I've already done it, so when some nobody tells me I'm wrong or that I'm a bitch, I laugh. At the end of the day, I'm big and strong. People don't have to ask if I lift weights when they see me. I don't have to take off my shirt to look jacked. So, when I speak about my real world experience eating whatever it is that I choose, I know what I'm talking about.

So boys, don't troll me. If you don't agree, don't read. My friends and I are enjoying our talks of Double QPC's, Big Macs, BK, and all the like. All the new guys should listen to those of us who are talking about the wonderful world of fast food. We were the skinny weak guys when we started this journey. Now, we're really big and strong. All would do well to listen to those who have come before them. That's what we did.

All about perspective. While I do want to be stronger I don't care (and thus wont make it) to your level of strength. It's pretty obvious in this thread who wants in to Rhodestown and who doesn't.

I would love to be at a competitive level bodybuilding physique though. Whether I ever even make it close to that is to be determined.

P.S. McDonald's Double cheesburgers are delicious, 4 go down so easy when keep calories are needed :D

I've stated numerous times in this thread that I completely agree with you. Fast food can be eaten on a periodic basis and have little or no effect on one's health.

The title of this thread is misleading. As I said before, eating fast food 4-5 times per week is not a "fast food lifestyle".

Lets say you eat fast food 10 times per week. Let's also assume you eat 6 times per day-that's 42 meals a week. Fast food would represent 1/4th of that total if you consumed 10 fast food meals a week. I still wouldn't call that a fast food "lifestyle"-considering it only makes up a 1/4th of your meals.

I choose not to eat it because I don't find it appetizing based on how it's prepared and handled-nothing to do with health.

Well I'm half hearted trying to lose some around the waist. I still must indulge and not get any weaker though or lose muscle at the same time. So Hardee's double thick burger large curly's and sweet tea, along with some of mom's home cooking. Guy's never turn down mom's cooking, for any reason!

No? Why? He's not serious. It's called busting balls. Men do it to each other all the time. That's how we show respect and love. We do not have the capability to show true emotion and express ourselves deeply. It's much easier to put each other down. The bigger the put down, the more respect shown. It's really very simple. Athletes, in general, do this all the time.

I'm guessing in today's pussified society, it's no longer acceptable to bust balls. Besides, if he realy wants to take it seriously, Kenny was just trying to make his efforts more effective. People helping people.

I am the Mayor of Rhodestown. I don't care if you agree with me or not. You are new here, probably young, as well. That's cool. You have to start somewhere. But, you don't know where I'm coming from or all the trouble I've caused on here with these threads in the past. Clearly, this is a fat guy discussion. We are not stupid. We know exactly what we are doing to our bodies. At least, we know as much as we care to know. Our goals are far more important at this time than our health. And, we don't need you to validate things that we already know. We are focusing on one part of our larger diet picture. The fun part. We take all of our vitamins, protein powders, BCAA's and whatever else it is we shove down our throats. For me, and I think many others, the fast food is the best part, sometimes. We don't have to count grams of protein or watch our fat intake. We can simply marvel at all of the beautiful calories that are included in a Double QPC. And, we are fully capable of adding all those wonderful calories, no discrimination between fat, protein, and carbs - all calories are the same to us - we can add those wonderful calories with the fabulous calories that are present in a large milkshake and we can see ourselves get bigger and stronger. That's when people's heads start turning when we walk into a room. Yes, this is what drives us to eat and lift. That, and the fact that our athletic careers are over and we need to do something productive with our time.

So, after my rambling, I think it's time to feed.

Men, this weekend I was in Arkansas. I had no McDonald's, but the fast food of Sonic is coursing thru my veins. That, and some BBQ, southern style. I totally blew up the airport toilet in Dallas yesterday morning. It was a spiritual experience.

I completely forgot where this was going. Damn!

Our goals are far more important at this time than our health.

To me, this is a key point. To EXCEL at something, you must make sacrifices. To be excellent in a specific are you must be extreme in your methods to get there.

Balance and Zen peacefullness does not get you specific excellence in a sport like powerlifting/strongman, etc. Going over the top, does. Training as hard as you possibly can, eating as much as you can, and never relenting in the journey to your goals.

If its worth doing, its worth overdoing.


Grain of salt for my thoughts, I am a noob, NOwhere near as strong as Rhodes, no where near as experienced, but I do have enough wherewithall (sp?) to listen to someone that has ACHIEVED what I am trying to achieve, and who takes the time to give us noobs as much solid info as he can.
