ready made frozen meals

are frozen meals any good for bulking? Im not talking about the crap ones with additives and salt preservatives etc, many supermarkets now stock these meals with no colours preservatives and low salt.

my favorite is sweet and sour chicken with rice and sometimes i use them as a quick calorie hit.


What are your opinions on these?

    The answer will depend on the rest of your diet and also which meals you are referring to.

    They can be full of additives and other flavourings, contents, etc... but on the other hand, in some cases, some are fine.

    textbook answer is "depands on your goals, rest of your diet etc".

    IMO though, these things are never as good as fresh food. with proper food you know exactly what you are getting.

    I'd treat them the same as a trip to McD's - an occasional convenience that tastes nice. If you're not relying on them 100% then no harm done I guess..?
