just somethingi was wondering. i eat those Hungry Man frozen dinners, salsbury steak and buffalo chicken for example. i want to know if you guys think those are ok to be legit "meals" i eat 5-6 meals a day to build muscle and i count a frozen dinner as a mea, i mean the chicken one has 5 grams of protien. your thoughts?

5 grams Protien is nothing. The meal is also probably loaded w/ sodium and preservatives and lacking vitamins.

Andy said it. Try to look for something with higer protien and containing at least some if any healthy vitamins and minerals. such as a nice thick ham sandwich in place of a frozen dinner.

i eat alot of healthy choice and lean cusine dinners...those are cool right?

Healthy Choice and Lean Cuisine are better, but still not the best choice for anything other than the odd convenience meal. They are very small portions (designed for dieting overweight middle-aged couch potatoes) and are still very high in sodium. And all frozen dinner are highly processed...you'll get more nutrients and less crap for a lot less money by buying raw food and cooking it yourself!

Also, eating 5-6 meals of frozen dinners will cost you probably around $20/day, $600/month.

Spend $200/month on groceries; it's cheaper and you won't have a cardiac arrest at age 33 from eating 120g of saturated fat every day.
