View Full Version : Candy for BodyBuilders?

I think eating M&Ms is good for you as a BB, because peanuts are healthy and the little chocolate that cover them give you energy but not fat, if you eat them before and post workout.

but what else can I eat of candy ?

snickers are good! don't know if they are a good bodybuilding food, but they give you lots of energy

Candy = empty calories

I don't eat candy...not even on my cheat days. Just no desire to.

Candy can help you get energy, get a better and bigger pump, remove the horrible taste of tuna fish, be something that eat during the day that actually tastes something else that tastes like something better than moneky prostata,peanuts are good for any person.

Adam, I think Snickers are a bit rich on chocolate, but anyways I had forgot them, thanks for the tip!.

I hate candy. Seriously, I do not enjoy the taste at all.

Candy and bodybuilding do not mix. If you are in a bulking phase and don't care about adding lots of extra bodyfat with your muscle then you can get away with eating candy but it will do nothing to help you add lean mass.

No, candy can have some benifits.

all calories are beneficial and nonbeneficial if you cant get a meal a snickers would be fine.. because your better off with the calories than nothing at all... plus if ur low on calories and u need a few more its not gonna make you fat rememb er calories in vs calories out

No room for candy. If I really need something sweet, and can't possible live without it, I have two oreos, and thats it. Candy...... too much work to lose the calories gained by it!

same here.. it took about a year to get like that but now when I look at it, I have no urge to eat it.. and when I do it doesnt even taste good anymore..

I think the only time I enjoyed something sweet like candy was on my birthday I had a fudge covered brownie with icecream... but it gave me a stomach ache and light head after..
