Microwave ready meals Are full of salt nd preservatives i know but when desperatly trying to bulk how bad are they a couple of times a week. are the carbs and protein any worse than in home cooked food, i know strict/ lean bodybuilding they would be no gd but what about a big bulk nd not scaref of adding a layer of fat?

3700 cals is easy to achieve without adding crap like that to your diet, consume healthy fats like EEVO and nuts, 100g of fresh brazil nuts have like 660 cals in so do ya math and your easily achieve it xxx

Yes IMO

You are better off with frest meat / veg :thumbup1:

Them ready made meals have added salt, there not as fresh and the meat is probably pumped full of water :thumbup1:

Why not make up the cals by adding a few homemade shakes a day?

Whey, oats, olive oil and milk?

Try to get some almonds down you. They are full of good fats, packed with calories and have a good protein content.

Get a few heaped tablespoons of peanut butter into your diet to add valuable calories and good fats.
