Fast food — food that’s generally highly processed — doesn’t exactly have a reputation of being healthy. However, many fast food restaurants have made huge strides in adding more nutritious choices to the menu. Chick-fil-A is one such example.
Although sides like Waffle Fries and Mac & Cheese are high in fat, carbs, and calories, there are several other side options that are healthier choices. Chick-fil-A’s Treats menu includes milkshakes, ice cream, chocolate chip cookies, brownies, frozen coffees, and lemonades.
I recently came across a Reddit thread discussing whether you can bulk successfully on a Chick-Fil-A diet. I absolutely think it’s possible to eat Chick-Fil-A if your goals are to gain muscle.
To maintain muscle mass, the most important consideration is eating enough protein throughout the day. Chick-fil-A’s menu has lots of high protein options, such as a chicken sandwich, chicken wrap and chicken nuggets, that make it possible to maintain your gains. Can I Eat at Chick-fil-A and Still Gain Muscle?
