Yes, calories are important. But you can get those without putting **** preservatives and low-nutrient foods into your system. Obviously half a plate of veggies doesn't give you that, but it gives you the nutrients to not feel like **** every day from eating McDonalds. That's why I didn't say eat JUST that. Fill the rest up with carbs - rice, bread, potatoes, whatever, and then some high protein meats which will also give you your fats.

Fast food is alright once in a while but the OP "constantly eating McDonalds and drinking pop" should not be in the diet plan, even for adding bulk. There are much better ways to do this.
