    Is Mac & Cheese Good For You??

    I eat like crazy and my goal is mass. And though it's a no brainer that Mac & Cheese won't create more mass, i'm just wanting to know if it is something good to eat that wouldn't be along the lines of being called "junk food".

    depends how you make it
    But neither pasta or cheese are "bad" for you
    Load it up with butter and eat 5lbs of it and its probably not a good idea every night

    You can't make general statements about whether or not a food is "good for you". It depends on your overall macros.

    In general, pasta and cheese are perfectly acceptable sources of nutrients. They're not the best, but they are adequate. And if they taste good, they will help keep you sane than a clean, boring diet. If you are bulking, you should not be worried about the content in mac & cheese. If you eat a lot of pasta, make sure you aren't getting a disproportionate number of carbs (like 60%+).

    Mac & Cheese will definitely create more mass. If your diet needs more calories, macaroni and cheese would fit the bill. It has a decent amount of protein, along with milkfat and slower digesting carbs. Kraft's has a lot of extra chemicals and preservatives, though, so in that regard it would be considered junk.

    Personally I don't like buying stuff like easy mac cause it feels too processed. I would rather make my own pasta and add my own cheese to it. That being said I love the way mac and cheese taste, and don't see anything wrong with eating it in moderation.

    Make a quick bechamel sauce and put a little cheese and some herbs in it.

    First post has got to go somewhere right? A mac and cheese thread seems just as good as any of the thousands of "how do I lose weight" threads we got floating around lol.
