Ok so since I am not much of a cook I was trying to find some decent fast food, I found one sandiwch that looked fine, just wanted to get an opinion here.

Premium Grilled Chicken Club Sandwich:
570 cals, 21g fat, 0g trans fat, 52g carbs, and 44g protein

Does this seem atleast decent?

You dont need to be an expert cook to be able to make a sandwich at home where you can control the macros.

I'll try that one out, might even get two next time.

I tried the McDonalds one and it had cheese, bacon, and lettuce too. I didn't like how the chicken tasted though.

I've been eating a lot of McDonald's recently too, with the hope of bulking up. My concern is that the bulk that I will or am already adding will be most fat. That is not what I'm looking for since I've lost a good amount of weight recently. I don't want to put it back on again but on the other day, I want to bulk up. I'm basically stuck somewhat, lol

few things you need to worry about with fast food:

calories (obviously)...make sure it fits into your needs

fat...trans fat has been shown to actually increase amount of fat stored as abdominal fat...also lots of saturated fat

sodium...usually a ton

I def. wouldn't recommend using fast food to "bulk up"...even if you can fit in into your calories it's still not healthy food

come on people...obviously we know there are healthier options

BUT that's not what this thread is about

You're right, I shouldn't have sidetracked the thread... Something about frying chicken and doing wrist curls at the same time just struck me as funny. Let me edit the post, especially since I start commuting to a land with fast food soon and this info might actually prove useful.

i've been in the habit of taking one of the buns out when i am forced to do a burger...less refined carbs..
