    Stick with clean food. And in first month you can eat everything in sight. This will maximize newbie gains. Then later on switch to Clean Bulking. Here are tips about it:

    Yum...Chinese food...my biggest weakness.

    I think eating the "crap food is alright once in a while. Just make the bulk of your eating from healthy sources (something I struggle with).

    Eat big but eat smart. Start eating vast quantities of whole eggs, steaks, lamb, pork, chicken, whole wheat bread and pasta, gobs of veggies and fruits. Drink as much milk as you can. Get your tuna. Eat your oats. Don't forget your olive oil and avocado, seeds and nuts. Eat all that is good. Occasionally allow yourself a cheat meal. I too love Chinese and could eat General Tso's chicken until I facken explode. I generally ahve one all out binge meal on weekends.

    Lift as heavy as HELL! Push, scream, DRIVE that weight up! Don't forget to do some cardio for overhealth and fitness. Get lots of quality deep sleep.

    If the gym doesn't "have" or allow the exercises in Starting Strength, don't join the gym and find one that does.

    What other exercises are you thinking about? If you have what you need to squat and bench press, you have everything you need for SS.

    IMO it's better to eat something bad than skip a meal altogether. The most important part is maintaining a caloric surplus. Once you get that down then you can focus on cleaning it up. GOMAD is awesome, and when combined with a beginner on SS, can be one of the most exciting times in the weightroom, as you'll be seeing gains constantly.

    ain't nuttin but a peanut.

    You will have gotten stronger when the weight that feels heavy is actually heavier than the weight that feels heavy now. Then the weight that feels heavy now will be a warmup for the weight that feels heavy then. But the weight will always feel heavy or you're not lifting enough weight. Clear? -Rippetoe
