Easy vegan bulking meal
3 cups rice
2-3 cans black beans
2 cans cranberry jelly
Just cook rice into pot and mix everything else in. Those are my recommended proportions. Add hot sauce and eat throughout the day. 5000k+ cal I believe
The fuck? I thought that shit had zero calories.
Guess I can see your point. I didn't notice that the meat was breaded (I don't have my glasses on because I forget them at home like a tard).
I knew beans probably had a nice bit of calories in them, but peas too? That's news to me man.
I have a really dumb question but how do you guys count calories for oils in cooking? Like a bought a bundle of asparagus and fried it with two table spoons of olive oil, so do I add that 120 calories to per serving of asparagus?
I would count all the oil, but then again I don't add a bucket load of it to most things, I would expect there would still be some oil left in the pan but most veggies will be coated and soak that shit up.
Does /fit/ have any advice for what to do with supermarket whole chickens (like pic related)?
To be fair, there is some top notch instant rice out there which tastes awesome and always comes out fluffy and lovely with zero effort what so ever. Nutrients are the same as the 'normal' stuff as well. I guess the only down side is that it costs a little more
Where I live instant rice costs a small fortune compared to 10 pounds bags of jasmine rice. You should really calculate the cost if you are eating a lot of rice and only use instant.
Slit the skin open in a few places and shove a few cloves of garlic under the skin in several places (just whole cloves, maybe skinned or slightly squashed, up to you) then rub olive oil all over it and some salt and pepper and a few sprigs of rosemary. Loosely cover with tinfoil And bang in the oven at 200C (how long depends how big) and for the last 30 mins take the foil off. Shit you not best chicken in the world
Yeah it is much more expensive than just a bag but some people (me) would rather have perfect rice every time in 2 minutes than over boil it or whatever (which I have done may times)
I just chop it into pieces (legs off first, then the breast, google how to carve a chicken it's pretty simple) and they will usually do 2 meals. Then I scrape off all meat from the carcass and put that in a bowl in the fridge to use in a Raman or risotto or something
Yea, my cut failed because of that 1 calorie difference. Fuck me, right?
Neat picture, but serotonin requires tryptophan, btw. Dopamine lists phenylalanine, so.. consistency.
Low dopamine is also the main listed cause of ADD, which obviously could have potential remedies through increasing that amino acid.
Also, all cellular energy comes from NAD, which is produced from B3 (niacin), which can be produced by tryptophan (1mg : 60mg.. which is 33mg from 2g if that's the only conversion product; and for reference, the DV is 20mg per 2k Cals.). That potentially contrasts norepinephrine as what would noticeably increase energy.
what would you recommend for a fat fuck that doesnt have a freezer ?
i've read your images really, but there are too many things listed, can you show me what do you buy for one week worth of food ? what's on your receipt ?
i really don't know what to do with food
Is seriously no one gonna comment on that fucking thumbnail? wtf op?
Because I believe that most people on this board truly do not need these supplements and will begin to rely on them because someone on the internet showed them an info-picture.
>Implying that people on fit don't know to eat protein
>Implying that people read the DV
When you supplement with tryptophan and phenylaianine you WILL produce more serotonin and dopamine than when you were not taking these supplements. This may result in a dependence forming along with an altered mood. The people that read this don"t realize they are messing with their brain chemisty.
Also products that contain phenylaianine like aspartame in diet soda have been correlated with depression which results in less motivation, obesity, and therefore lack of gainz.
I was a vegan for two years and I was so fed up with all those beans, lentils, rice, tofu, etc, I craved meat so much and also couldn't gain enough weight. I just digest vegetables so fast...Now I enjoy eating again and am able to gain weight
>When you supplement with tryptophan and phenylaianine you WILL produce more serotonin and dopamine than when you were not taking these supplements.
That's potentially the point of a party taking them, but there are limiting factors to such production. We're on /fit/, though. The idea of purchasing a bunch of supplement powders probably comes with questions before-so, not to mention research. Also, if they can read, they can get from the picture that they're "fucking with their chemistry".
There's also no reason to imply that depression in else-ordinary cases are anything but a lack of supporting nutrition -- B vitamins, C, etc. There are factors that most studies don't control for, albeit ludicrously.
limiting factors though will diminish in time with continued supplementation as your body should adjust for more uptake. I understand that is one of the intended effects I just think that you should be eating better before you think you have a precursor deficiency so great that you need to supplement yourself. One get the same effects from eating red meat, chicken, and dark leafy vegetables like spinach.
I am in the understanding that at least half of /fit/ has borderline depression or at least negative views about themselves.

Sometimes for qn easy lunch I make this:
50g mung beans
100g red lentils
boil them with a veg stock cube, some sliced carrots and peas
eat with a small tub a Greek yoghurt
i think its around ~40g total protein in this lunch
Does anyone me to make an image based recipe for chicken burritos? They freeze and defrost really well.
Macros in pic related (ignore the breakfast)
>mfw I used to douse 1 cup of stevia in my baking recipes
Use a measuring spoon at first, after you're sure that you can eyeball the amount, then drop the spoon. When in doubt, always overestimate if you're cutting and underestimate if you're bulking
I would debone most of it and cut it up in 1-inch cubes for stews. You can try to filet any meat that's thick enough but farm poultry tends to have more fat than meat.
Rotisserie-ing your chicken requires a grill or an oven tool so just forget about roasting the entire chicken. You'll either end up with overcooked thighs, wings and an undercooked breast
idk about other countries, but in the US you can legally call something 0 calorie if it has less than 5 calories per serving.
Stevia, splenda, and most other "no calorie" sweeteners have about or just short of one gram of carbs per serving (which is usually one tsp) which keeps it under the limit. It's pretty negligible if you only have one tsp but if you use it for baking or cooking, it can add up.
im from belgium, if i were to buy chicken from carrefour it would be expensive as well, instead i buy from aldi. which is cheaper, what i mean is dont buy at an expensive market
I love these threads. I eat anything I want via no diet but these threads are wonderful for increasing protein and cals.

Started doing this at 167 lbs. Down to 164 lbs and I'm still going up on all my lifts.
Anyone else steal all their meat and sups? Managing to actually save money while I eat shit loads, highly recommend. I worked in a supermarket for close to a decade, the staff don't know what the fuck is going on and even if they do, not enough balls to stop you. Do it bros
protip - cook the bacon in a pan, dice the chicken up then cook it in the bacon grease then put it all in the casserole dish the go to step 4. Way better and easier to cook properly and measure out servings.
it's 42g for the whole recipe and even that's a little off. I made it yesterday with a 5 oz can of starkist and it came closer to 30, but I'm sure if I used the kind I usually ger (5.5 oz) it would have been more accurate.
The patties are really small, which admittedly doesn't translate well in the pic.
How do you buy/eat them? I can do fresh veggies all day erry day but the moment most are cooked beyond "lightly steamed" it's gag city for me (exceptions are peas and yellow/green beans). This means frozen/canned are also out, and it ultimately ends up costing me a little more, but I can afford fresh most of the time so i don't really care.
>patties are really small, which admittedly doesn't translate well in the pic
Thats why I was wondering. 42g per patty would literally, fuck nuts. I'll have to give them a shot. They look awesome.
Had the same problem. Broccali, brussel sprouts, even assparigus make me want to vomit. Spinich is an amazing food to start with. And no not fresh, go with cooked. Cooked spinich (frozen, never canned) goes with everything.
solidarity bro, I hate them all, even fruit too. taste is usually meh, but texture kills me. that awful crunch, the endless chewing, not being able to swallow.
with me it's everything, but from what little I've had spinach is kind of ok. lettuce is awful though, like literally the worst.
my cutting diet
1500 kcals a day
1 can of ravioli
I cook a brisket (salt n pepper) in the smoker and eat that with veges for the week. shits dope. (I usually eat 300-400grams of brisket, today I had just a little bit left over - just ate the remainder)
>in the US you can legally call something 0 calorie if it has less than 5 calories per serving
So theoretically, could Nestle start selling 0 cal cookies, if they listed ther serving size as 1/20th of a cookie?
>how to spend a thousand bucks per month on food: the short animated guide: the thread
Do you eat the oats with milk or water or yogurt?
Do you boil them or just soak them?
Do you eat them warm or cold?
Do you eat them when you make them, or have to leave them for an hour first?
all civilized countries do that, eg the whole of europe, just ameritards use feet, inces, toenails, calories and degrees between human body temperature and freezing point of salt water
Calories are metric friendly though. 1cal = the amount of water required to heat 1ml of water by 1c. 1KCal = the amount of energy required to heat a litre of water by 1c.
Yeah, I moved here a few months ago. It's just hard to do in your head, but luckily we all carry calculators and unit convertors around now. And dividing it by 4 works for rough calculations.
learn to distinguish phytoestrogens and xenoestrogens before you claim any sort of knowledge of either, thank you very much. :)
yup, in that very specific instance, because it happens to be the definition of the unit but joules are actually SI-units (kg*m^2/s^2)
it's a rotisserie chicken.
As someone who actually enjoys cooking it's threads like this and the entire board of /ck/ that remind me that 4chan is full of manchildren that don't know what good food is.
At least /fit/ has a basic understanding of nutrition though.
Beyond the obvious digestive pains and problems that seem so common, I'm pretty sure that the claims I read didn't ever get sourced. The CSPI downgraded their safety rating from safe to caution.
Stevia tastes better anyway.
Buying a months worth of chicken/broccoli/rice/beans is cheaper than buying a weeks worth of Doritos.
Fuck off with you "all the healthy food is too expensive!" You're just too much of a fatfuck to have even ever tried buying healthy food, so you make up excuses.
It's easier being thin when you're poor than it is being fat.
What my average breakfast looks like recently
>4 eggs scrambled with some sausage, spinach, pepper, tomato onion, cucumber and seasonings
>Plain nonfat Greek yogurt and cottage cheese w blue berries and bananas
Salt, garlic, onion and pepper like the pic says + pinch of chili powder. Honestly you can leave the salt out tho. Couldnt eat the last one because it got too salty after eating 5 of them already.
I don't know if this is true or momscience or both, but growing up my mom always told me that you have to try a food that you don't like about 12 times before you begin to like it, this has seemed to be pretty true for me in life. Just keep trying fatass, my mom wouldn't lie to me.
More than half of this thread so far is all about chicken, veggies and rice that are some of the cheapest foods available.
The only thing that may cost you a little more are frozen berries
No cool pic, but I'd like to share a cool vegetarian lasgna recipe I make often.
Basically I grab a zucchini, shred it and boil it for a while, until it gets soft.
On separate I throw in a pan with a little olive oil a shitload of veggies and stir fry them with a little homemade tomato sauce. That's up to your personal taste but I usually add onions, garlic, peppers, tomato, leeks, broccoli, olives (fucking love olives) and mushrooms.
I proceed to grab a oven-able tray, coat the bottom with the zucchini, add the vegetable mix, another layer of zucchini, more veggies etc. I top it off with mozarella and it goes to the oven for a bit. Pretty nice
An average dinner for me will be something along the lines of tuna, tilapia, and or chicken with rice, lentils and veggies maybe a spinach salad. Also not pic worthy
>always make sure to get two scoops a day
It literally consists of eggs, spinach, salmon and cottage cheese. There's not a single thing not /fit/ about it
This stuff is great. I got laid that night and accidentally burnt my g/f from the habaneros though which I wouldn't recommend.
You should avoid eating cheap meat it's full of stuff you really don't want in your system and that can actually negatively effect your testosterone levels and other shit keeping you from gains. Buy good meat, veggies are important too, don't take that toxic shit in your diet lads, just bulk on peanut butter, rice, meat, nuts and milk which is relatively cheap and effective
Salt and pepper the chickens cavity. Slit the skin open. Put tarragon under the skin. Fill the chicken with tarragon and a lemon (stab the lemon with a fork). Rub the chicken with olive oil. Bake in the oven at 220oC for 45 to 60 minutes.
Alternatively, put Boursin cheese or Cantadou pepper taste (it's a fresh cheese to spread normally on bread) under the skin. Salt and pepper the cavity. Rub the chicken with oil. Bake like previously mentioned.
So, I like to eat an edible or smoke a bowl a few times a week. What kind of healthy munchies would you recommend? I like to actually make things though, not just grab a bag of chips. Something with fruits would be nice.
To make it fookin juicy you can place the chicken atop of a can of beer or apple juice or something like that. The beverage vaporizes and is absorbed into the meat. Believe me, its downright awesome.
Also: add half a lime that you stuff down its throath for taste. And remember to season well.
1) Hypothyroidism can be caused by overeating (1.0 to 1.5 kg) of cruciferous vegetables
2) Eat Seaweed with cruciferous vegetables as Iodine intake reduces the chances of Hypothyroidism
3) Cooking helps reduce these goitrogenic properties (albeit there is some nutrient loss)
I owe basically all of my weight loss success to this exact image. Got it on /fit/ a year or two ago, it's my go-to for meal prep. Add hot sauce to taste, maybe even mix it up with some low-cal ranch dressing if I'm feeling the cravings. 450cals a meal, and filling at that, is fucking phenomenal.
Amongst the bbq community its been said that you shouldn't do this. I've found just smoking the chicken keeps the chicken breast nice and moist without drying out. Although you get a kind of rubbery skin...
Cover it in your choice of pasta sauce. Cook. That's literally it. It tastes great and you didn't do much to change its nutritional value. Add some ketchup on the side because ketchup with chicken is delicious and can make plowing through 3 pounds of plain eat doable.
>there are people who don't own an electric rice cooker
It's like you've never lived in an Asian country.
Perfect rice every time for even less effort than rice bags and cheaper over time
>pour water to appropriate mark
When rice is ready the cooker will keep it warm for hours if need be so you don't have to monitor that shit like a rice bag (wouldn't recommend keeping it in the cooker for over 3h though, it starts getting noticeably drier after that point, but under 1h is no problem).
The taste and texture also trashes all rice bags I have tried in western countries, though I realize it comes down to taste.
That looks absolutely disgusting, but interesting.
Should I try the similar Starbucks salad so I can get a trial taste test? Usually not one for cold, uncooked, spicy foods, but I'm the kind of guy who gets so fascinated by new foods that I end up being positively biased before actually trying them.
When the food taste is deppressing, try making some yogurt sauce, It's a trick I usually do.
Take a low fat yogurt, add half a garlic clove (or a little one) with that shit in pic related, and mix it. Chop some parsley and add it (dry parsley works too). Squeeze a lemon on top and mix it all together, try it and keep on adding lemon if necessary until you reach the desired taste.
You can add a little bit of salt and olive oil, but don't forget to count the calories.
This shit is fucking awesome for chicken and canons wraps.
Tabasco sauce is a healthier option but I guess some people don't like it.
Mfw I read that as "dumplings"
Mfw I'm craving dumplings now
any "bodybuilder" recipes for slow cooker?
I just threw in chicken breast, salsa, vegetables, potatoes for 8hours. will see how it works out.
want to test something with rice next but not sure if that actually works.
That seems like a strange choice for breakfast.
My breakfast shake is 4 egg whites, 1 scoop of lean fit protein, half a cup of strawberries, half banana, 3/4 cup of fat free Greek yogurt and a cup of 1% milk.
Together that's 519 calories and 65g of protein.
i really really dont want to be that guy, but since noone points it out, its healthier to eat plants.
you can also maintain your gains
theres dozens of vegan bodybuilders now.
you dont have to listen , but it would be better for you and our planet. thanks for reading
I remember the same meals I ate everyday when I was losing weight...can't wait to get back to it after I have my babies.
>2 large eggs with some chopped mushrooms and 2 slices of turkey bacon - sometimes a thin slice of swiss cheese; this never changed
>Turkey sandwich with a little light mayo and lettuce OR
>greek yogurt with banana, protein powder and oatmeal; this rarely changed
>sauteed chicken breast with garlic with a small amount of rice
>special low-cal dinners now and then
I never stopped being hungry desu and despite working out for 1-2 hours 6 days a week and 2 jobs, I still lost weight pretty slowly. Hopefully it was off-set by lifting or I have a terrible metabolism. But things like progressing in lifting and stamina felt just as good as losing pounds to me so that kept me going too.
YES ANON TALK DIRTY TO ME
