    Any truth to olives being good for bulking?

    A friend of mine at the gym swore up and down that olives help you bulk. Looking into it I call it but he said to ask other bb since he wanted to get his point across.

    Any truth to olives being good for bulking??

    I don't see any magical qualities that olives have, no.

    Bottom line will be calories, which can be ingested from 100's of foods, not just olives!

    It's like saying chicken will get you ripped. Makes no sense, really.

    He may mean this because they are calorically dense, but again, so are 100's of other foods. (peanut butter is one example)

    So it's not "olives" themselves that possess any "buff-like" qualities, that's totally false.
