    Default McDonalds... How bad is it?

    I know little about the real science of nutrition, but how bad is McDonald's really?

    Clearly it's not something you wanna consume everyday but how bad is it for you...
    And with regards to training, if your training 3-4 times a week is it going to impact much, particularly if your trying to gain...?

    Its food like any other. Nothing mysteriously bad about it. Tends to be higher in calories so take that into account if you eat it.

    Bazza recommends it, it's great especially when cutting, but he also thinks the sky is green instead of blue and that you need to eat at least 12000 calories for an effective cut.

    But realistically I do have to agree that it is just food. Food that tastes like crap at that, and I would rather eat the packaging than the food inside it.

    If you want to eat it, it depends on you, and your personal goals in training and how you currently look. Had a mate who lived on KFC and Maccas and he was cut to shreds abs and all, if I ate the same I would be 200kg, so everyone is different. Personally I can see no point to eating it when there is so much nice tasting food to eat in the world, why would you waste a meal on that crap??

    As someone trying to gain also I don't find any issues.
    In fact I used to have one mcdouble as pre workout to great effect energy wise.
    However they stopped the $2 promotion a while ago like a drug dealer getting people hooked cheap, lol

    Mick. Welcome back. You don't fail to disappoint or get things wrong.

    First line. "Bazza recommends it". Show me where I recommended it. I prefer fish and chips or pizza actually.

    Taste is a personal preference. No where did the guy ask for what does big mock think of the taste of McDonald's.

    That being said, old mate is currently two years younger than me, is still shredded, and still eats the same, however these days he suffers from kidney stones, he is on cholesterol and heart medication and has high blood pressure, his missus eats the same food he eats and weights about 130kg, she is as big as a house, I avoid the stuff (Maccas etc) and have zero health issues and take no medication what so ever, take from that what you will.

    Thanks, but I have decided to be very part time as I am really too busy most of the time now, still on 5/3/1, plus doing about 5-10km if interval running almost every day including weight days, mainly because I want to and because my dogs love it, love going for long cross country tracks/runs with two Huskies, they love it and it's making me feel great.

    Sorry for the off topic post...
