Not sure if this is a nutrition question or a supplement one so I've posted it in both on the assumption that a wise moderator will delete it from the section it is least appropriate to!
Anyway, I Tried one of these flapjacks the other day on a refeed day (I'm just coming to the end of my cut). Thought they were delicious and would love to incorporate them into my (very) clean bulk I am planning on beginning. On the face of it they seem like a very good post-post-workout snack (I'm still planning on liquid post-workout for quicker absorbtion) and possibly also a good pre-workout one but I just wondered what other people thought of the macros. My one real concern is whether they are too high in (saturated) fat and/or sugar to be compatible with a clean bulk? Or are they fine for post-post workout? I want this bulk to be one that I stay as lean as possible even at the expense of not gaining muscle as quickly as I otherwise might be able to do...
