    Food choices while on cycle

    Hey guys just coming up to 12weeks in on first cycle, 38lbs up so far, I started at 2700cals, which was all clean with one “cheat” meal a week- as my cals got higher- foods got dirtier, once I hit around 3700 cals my food choices where based more calorie dense and not at 4800, they are still calorie dense, I am not sure how effective this is but I have gained 38lbs and not much body fat at all.
    So my question is, would it be better for me in future cycles to eat more clean or is this an effective diet providing you have the money to do so? Also like to add I have had blood work done twice and everything came back good in terms of hematric and HDL And LDL were not too bad, I have been regularly testing my blood pressure and that is not too bad either, out of range slightly but looking more like 130/80

    My typical day of food now looks like this-

    (Will wait to get ripped into lol)

    Meal 1- 150 oats 2 scoops whey

    Meal 2 subway 12inch meat feast

    Meal 3 pre workout meal- 150g oats 2 scoops whey

    Meal 4 post workout meal- 3x double cheese burgers from McDonald’s and 1x orange lucozade

    just to confirm.. your eating fast food twice per day and your only other meals are oats and a protein shake ?

    don't you know how to cook or food prep at all brother !

    if your going to stick with this your going to need to learn how to cook and meal prep and make it a lifestyle.. first AAS cycles and fast food will only get you so far

    Yes I know it’s bad at this point- I was meal prepping up to around 3600 then it was just a lot easier with calorie dense foods, I’m a business owner and always eat my meals cold and tbh I f*king hate cold chicken and rice, gonna try cold potatoes instead, rice knocks me sick these days

    does not need to be cold . you need a high quality thermos (one that keeps things warm for 12+ hours). you simply prep your meals this way
    - dice your chicken up in small bits, cook it,, take your cooked rice,, maybe some steamed carrots or celery.. boil some chicken stock. then throw that all into a thermos and you have a prepped meal that will stay warm for you all day .
    you can do the same thing with ground beef and potatoes, steak and potatoes, etc.. just be sure to have the chicken stock mixed in and heated up super hot.

    or if you only cook/prep meals once per week and then store it in the fridge. its the same concept . prep all your steak and chicken and cut it up real small and store it in the Tupperware in the fridge . but the morning you leave for work you take and you heat up that chicken and rice in the microwave and boil your chicken stock, then throw it into your thermos.
    pretty easy

    you can also to crock pot meals and a rice cooker that always has warm food ready for you , and before you walk out the door you just throw it all into a thermos all ready to go (instead of Tupperware) and it will stay warm all day

    Never thought to put it in a thermos or use chicken stock, that would make things much better, thanks mate I’m gonna go hunt for a thermos and have a go, meal prepping isn’t the problem, it’s just the eating cold and finishing 4800 cals in clean foods haha, but I am fully aware my diet is awful, but considering my. Diet, body fat has stayed fairly low

    the chicken stock added to the meal in the thermos is not only going to keep everything super warm all day , it will also keep your meat and rice moist and from drying out..

    dried out cold chicken and rice sitting in a Tupperware all day . no thank you .. hot steamy moist chicken and rice with the flavor and wetness of the chicken stock , tastes great (add some veggies like celery will also help keep things moist)

    Great advice bro, that’s a game changer, the only reason I get shitty take out is because it’s nice and hot

    If you can’t make the sacrifice to eat how you need to forget this whole thing. I hope you realize your 38lb gain is not muscle but loads of fat and water retention.

    I know the 38lbs isn’t all muscle, lots of water retention but some muscle, but wrong about the lots of fat- I’m leaner than when I started

    Were you like 140 pounds before your cycle? Because there is no way you gained even 15 pounds of muscle with that diet unless you were a toothpick before you started.

    I would be smaller than the people in old age homes eating that little food that has almost zero micro nutrition.
