After browsing through a good portion of HY's journal, I can say I'm inspired to go pig out on dinner tonight. :thumbup: (Going to be East Village Japanese, after I get my haircut.)

What I want to know is -- given that I eat clean most of the time -- does it matter where the calories are coming from as long as sufficient protein, carbs, fats, fiber and nutrients are being ingested? Let me clarify: 3000 calories a day isn't usually a problem for me, but I'm wondering if a slice of lasagna could be included or if I'm being too spartan.

All good things in moderation.

Don't sweat it bro, just dont make a habit of it. Homey is a genetic phenomenom!! honestly though HY needs 7-8k cals a day, therefore some junk is almost a given.

Im not a fan of bulking to be honest, personally i think its an excuse to get fat for most :) Just makes losing body fat harder. Think about it the reccomended weight gain is 1-2lbs a week if this were consistent for a year then you'd end up with 50lbs plus of muscle. Why not shoot for half a pound or less a week? the result = an improved Muscle:Fat gain ratio.

Soz for the mini rant, just some thoughts

Big-Ron said it perfect...my idea of bulking is about 3000cals/day when I'm not dieting,lol. Honestly enjoying something you like a few times a week won't hurt you unless your trying to strip bodyfat.

Shouldn't bee too bad. Just don't make it an everyday occurence. :p

I do the same thing if I know I'm gonna be short on cals. Shoot, if I know I'm way short on fat and cals I'll have a triple decker natty PB on WW(Whatever gets the cals in when i'm in a jam. :) ). Just make up for it and have healthier food choices next day or two. :)
