is this just a horrible idea or can i use this a few times a week. each double cheesebuger (only 99 cents!) has 490 calories, 25 grams of protein --- but 26 grams of fat. i can eat 4 of these for a meal no problem and have 1960 calories and 100 grams of protein down the hatch. i'm a skinny guy and don't seem to gain fat no matter how bad i eat, so this seems like a godsend. what do you guys think?

You can get a dozen eggs for 99 cents and get 840 cals, 96 g of protein and a much healthier meal. :D

But that's not nearly as tasty. Skinny guys do what we can to put on the mass.

egg farts are the worst. Just ask my office mate...:evillaugh

If you're not getting fat and you're not worried about dropping dead from a heart attack or stroke, then I say go for it! Can't be any worse than egg farts.

you also need to understand that 100g of protein in one sitting is prettty much pointless ,, your body can only absorb so much at one sitting ( usually 40-50-60 depending on ones size),,, so 50-60 grams of protein in that 4 cheesburger meal of yours are going to waste,,,
eat the burgers but eat 2 every 2-3 hrs,, thatll be much more beneficial youll still be getting the calories you need for gaining but youll also be getting a full 100 grams of protein instead of 50....
also id try to cut the cheese and mayo on the burger if i were you( actually if i were you i wouldnt touch a burger) :) ,, tell them to pack it with veggies

It looks a bit more because of all the creatine water retention but yeah probably still around 6-7%. I actually prefer Wendy's triple cheeseburgers and jr. bacon cheeseburgers. Wendy's lets you double the beef for only like 79 or something.

There's a greasy spoon down the street that sells dbl bacon cheeseburgers which must literally have 6-7 pieces of bacon on them. One of those, loaded, is a full meal I gotta tell you...hmm I think I just decided on lunch for tomorrow after my cardio.

This is just a myth, and your body does a good job at absorbing whatever you consume. The larger the meal, the longer it will sit in your gut, but this is not to say that the protein will not be absorbed. If I remember correctly, protein is absorbed with ~90% efficiency, fat at ~95%, and carbs will vary the most due to the fiber content.

Dude doesn't care if it is the healthiest meal nor does he specifically care about the amount of protien consumed. 4 cheeseburgers are for DENSE calories to gain some weight. I say if you are skinny and can't gain weight easily because of a low appitite go for it. It worked for me. MC'ds is what kind of "jump" started my weight gain.

I would be more concerned about the saturated fats and a future heart condition through gaining weight this way. If you want to increase your calories, buy some fish and soak it in olive oil before you bake it. There are a ton of ways to increase calories that are far better.

Bradley,, this topic has been researched over many years and still there is no real realible answer ,im sure youll be able to cut and paste well credited references that support your opinion on this and i would be able to do the same ,,yes the body does prefer 40+ grams of protein every 2-3 hrs for muscle growth , but there is no reason to consume any more then 50-60 grams per meal,,, im pretty sure you do not consume a 100 grams of protein per meal because you seem much smarterr then that.....unless your juicing in which protein synthesis would be greater........
also i do not understand why you would cut and paste what i wrote when we both know it would be much better if he split it in 2 meals,, this board is to help people out ,,are you recommending him to eat 2000-2500 cals in one sitting, even on a bulk??

DUDE!!!! :) first off by adding 8 slices of cheese and 2 tablespoons of mayo that is equivelent to 50 grams of fat ,, I dont care what bulk your on you dont need that extra garbage,, extra fat will not encourage muscle growth ,, only a climb in the BF scale,,, yes it will add a good amount of extra calories which are needed for bulking but they are not the best source of extra calories and i would still recommend you not to eat them,, you aleady ate a good 50 grams of fat from just the patties alone!! there are many ways in upping your calories and not upping your fat ,, if you do up your fat why not choose flax oil , because your surely not getting any EFA's from double cheeseburgers,,, or why dont you grub out on oatmeal ,, eat as much as you can 6 times a day with a good source of protein and fat,, its really not hard at all
good choices for meals and extra calories:
flaxseed oil
olive oil
canola oil( contains small sourse of omega 3)
peanut butter
nuts
oats
sweet potatoes
yams
whole wheat bread
fish(all kinds)
chicken
beef
turkey
veggies
beef jerkey
protein shakes
by doing this youll add lean mass without all the fat

im thinking your probably joking around but this has got to be one of the worst posts in history if your serious, but if you are serious here it goes:::: BUCKLE UP
1..2500 calories in one meal is unnesscary,,, refeeds do not even aquire that many calories per sitting,, if you have a binge and it adds up to that (once every few weeks) ,, ok!! but if your eating like that daily 4-6 times a day i would recommend you stop doing this!!!!

2..10000 calories a day , umm what exactly are your goals , BECOMING FAT?????, pro's do not even consume that much daily offseason ( and theyre on the juice all throughout it),, and if they do all the cals add up from complex carbs not fat,, im pretty sure your not a good 350 plus off season though ,, if so wed probably know who you were!!!

3..no fat is not the enemy,, your body will not function correctly without fat ( to a limit though ) ,, but if your amused by the fact of 4 cheeseburgers with the cheese and mayo ( which is all saturated fat),, and are recommending it to bulkers,, that wouldnt be the greatest idea

4.. and finally your body will not function a 100% without glucose ,,which is the body's preffered energy source,,, you can train your body to use fat for fuel ( ketosis ) but this shouldnt be used in long periods of time,, unless obese, which in many cases the obese seem to find more energy from fat then carbs ,, but athletes and bb'ers should get there energy from carbs

AND IM DONE,, YOU BETTER NOT BE JOKING :mad:

Newby81:
1. protien shakes are not a very good source of protien through out the day(I would even go as far as saying they are not even a good source of protien) They are also very expensive.
2. Some of the stuff you listed is not very calorie dense or very "tastey". Most "ecto" morphs have trouble eatting enough of the "clean" foods to gain weight. Chugging oil just makes me throw up and all that other meat products I can only eat so much because of time constraints. (I just got home from school at 12:30am left the house at 6:00am previous day) Eatting oatmeal makes me gag and hard. I eat it anyways but I couldn't eat that more then 1 meal a day. Don't assume and tell people what is hard and what is not.
3. If 4 cheeseburgers every few days is the difference between gaining weight and staying the same I will choose 8 cheeseburgers everytime period. A calorie is a calorie is a calorie. Some are better then other of course but not enough is worse then too many. This goes double for "ecto" morphs.
4. 2500 calories in one sitting/100g protien in one sitting/what ever is unnessessary but can not hurt. Your body will absorb all these nutrients and any excess will be converted to energy. Just because your body absorbs 100g protien doesn't mean it uses it all. Anything it doesn't use will be converted to energy. (Correct me I am wrong bradley) Excess cals are needed to build muscle period so eatting fat will aid muscle growth. Is it the best way? Is it a decent alternative for people that don't really have to worry about fat gain and are more focused on weight gain? Yes.

Many a time have I come across people that share your views. "Eat clean or don't eat". That held me back in my training in the early stages. Since I learned my body can handle "fast foods" with minimal penalties it has been much better. Would I be slightly leaner if I didn't eat fast foods (some times 2x a day :) )? Yes. But I would be a heck of alot smaller too. Try to see where the person you are giving advice is coming from.

4 double cheeseburgers? Horrible idea.

Two double quarter pounders with cheese? Excellent idea. :D

Been my lunch for the last, oh, six months or so. I HIGHLY recommend it. I've headed more in the direction of MrWebb's view over Newby81 as I've gone on.... I'm bigger and leaner than I've ever been, so it must work.

Cut and paste these studies bro, everyone who has heard this argument 100 times want to read them. You do realize protein synthesis and protein digestion are two distince things correct? Bradley is correct, a basic understanding of the digestive system and specifically digestive enzymes would agree.

im gonna try and keep this short and to the point
1... i didnt recommend protein shakes for meals ,, these are to be consumed post w/o with a high gi carb for an insulin spike
2.... there are many alternatives to oatmeal
3-4 .. since you seem to care about peoples needs so much , where did you get the idea that he was a hard gainer,, he did not mention that at all( that is something you just threw in on your own),, if you read his post he wants a cheap alternative for bulking,,, as far as we know this kid can be 230 pounds of pure muscle,, and without the indepth info there is no way im going to recommend him eating 4 cheesebugers a day, nor should you ,because whether hard gainer or not its still not a good idea!!!!!!!!!
i try and work with the information im given ,, with little info i try to give a general idea of what need to be changed or tampered with ,, and that is all we should be doing PERIOD

Please post these references that show the body will only absorb ~40g of protein per serving, as I do not think such references exist.


yes the body does prefer 40+ grams of protein every 2-3 hrs for muscle growth , but there is no reason to consume any more then 50-60 grams per meal,,,

Let's suppose that I take in 75g of protein in one sitting, as compared to taking in 40g in one sitting. The 75g will take longer to digest, and thus end providing the body with amino acids for a longer period of time, which would be ideal for someone who is unable to eat every 3-4 hours.



also i do not understand why you would cut and paste what i wrote when we both know it would be much better if he split it in 2 meals,, this board is to help people out ,,are you recommending him to eat 2000-2500 cals in one sitting, even on a bulk??

The above statement is not relevant to the discussion at hand, since I in no way recommended him to eat only 2 meals. I am just pointing out that your statement has no scientific backing, although you claim that it does. Again I ask you to please post these references that you are referring to, and I will be happy to acknowledge I am wrong if you can prove to me that the body will only utilize ~40g of protein per sitting.:)

I agree that splitting up your meals throughout the day would be a better approach, but then again that is not what I was pointing out in my original post in this thread.

Okay,.. let me first say that newby81 posted a nice post above this one..

Now let me sort this one out :P

1. protein shakes are cheaper then whole food, for the most part. Also i dun remember newby81 even recommending them.

2. out of all the foods he previously listed, many of them are calorie dense, i can eat 5000 cals from oatmeal alone, so if you can't get 5000 cals from nuts then you are a 10 year old skinny anorexic women. Sorry.

3. If you have to resort to eating that garbage to gain weight, i would personally rather stay the same weight then cause myself a heart attack @ the age of 20. Just eat real clean food.

4. No one knows how well the body can/will use all of these nutrients. SO i will not comment on this.

He never said he wanted a cheap bulking food. He never even brought up the issue of money.

Oh and defcon as I said before it's a matter of goals. For skinny people many don't care about the extra fat and the potiential to get a heart attack later in life because for many it will not be a reality. They care about mass gain and now. I don't care if you can eat 10k cals of oatmeal. If he could do that he wouldn't be asking this question because he would be gaining weight on oatmeal.

I think what is more important than the increasingly shrill generalizations about what's 'good' and what's 'bad' from some of the posts here is for you to observe the effects that eating in different ways has on your body (as Belial pointed out... he has personally found that he has become bigger and leaner eating that way).

Myself, I like Wendy's better than McD's for that sort of thing because they add foliage to the burger... ;) I limit carbs both when cutting and bulking and so i tend to order a Wendy's triple w. cheese with no bun, and they serve it in one of those little baked potato trays. McDonalds double qtr pdrs... those I will throw on a plate, or if I simply must eat it with the bun for some reason, I'll put the meat from one into the other bun, and make a 4-patty burger. :drooling:

wow, glad i buckled up for this waste of 2 minutes. let me try to sum this up short and sweet. you can read all the books in the world, you can even browse hundreds of websites, and they all give you outstanding support of everything you just said. BUT! everyones bodies are different, and there is no better measure than personal experience. so if you want to call me stupid for having goals of 10k calories, with gobs of fat in it, then by all means have at it.

I saw a comercial for KFC saying their chicken breast or somethin had 40 grams of protein and only 11 g's of carbs.. pretty impressive although i dont wanna look at the SAT fat on those babys. But for people like me who metabolize the **** out of fast food, it might be a good choice- i personally go for 2 big macs..

metabolism might mean you don't gain any weight, but imagine how much healthier you could be if you ate cleanly

not to mention, while you might not show weight gain, think of your arteries and what your cholesterol is going to be like in 10 years

We might have got this idea from this part of his post...

true, but it may take you an hour or so to make that lasagna, it only takes 5 minutes to hit a drive thru!

of course i kinda knew that it wasn't a "good" idea before i even started this thread -- read fast food nation by eric schlosser and you'll understand fast food is pretty truly awful in lots of meaningful ways -- but for the past two weeks i've been trying to get 3000 + calories/day, every day, no exceptions, and incorporating occasional fast food into that plan has become a necessary evil for me, and the consesus seems to be that in the grand scheme of things, it's not great, but probably not terrible either, so i'm gonna keep scarfing down the burgers!!

Well I guess I should have said request instead of question.:D

"Again I ask you to please post these references that you are referring to, and I will be happy to acknowledge I am wrong if you can prove to me that the body will only utilize ~40g of protein per sitting."

That's just silly talk. If we really did have that sort of requirement it would vary great due to the size of a person to begin with, let alone understanding how long it takes for the body to assimilate certain proteins, meal frequency, etc.
