I get asked this a lot. And by a lot, I mean A LOT. And that's fine, because I'd rather share my experiences, habits and eating choices, good or bad, because information is key. When you have more information, you can make better choices about what affects you.
What do I eat? Chicken - bbq'ed breasts, legs, thighs, wings as a treat, pork (lean cuts) - tenderloin, boneless chops. Beef - lean hamburger in pasta, lean burgers, good old striploin steaks. The odd round of potatoes - sometimes fries. Lots of veggies, even on bbq'ed skewers with beef and chicken. I do enjoy rice, even though it's a heavier starch. I also like to pound back 4 slices of toasted whole wheat bread with all-natural peanut butter as my fave post-workout snack.
I also allow my Saturdays as my "anything goes / carb-up" days. I can eat just about whatever - burgers and poutine, fries, onion rings, whatever. Not in crazy excess, but generally weekends are my "old school" food days. I also have occasional GNC Pro Performance Whey Iso Burst protein shakes, 2 scoops, with 1% milk.
Here's the kicker - I don't calorie count. My portions are best described as "sensible for me". I eat enough to allow me to keep growing without packing on additional mass that I'll have to shed later. You learn to listen to your body and to eat sensibly. An extra snack later is safer than over-eating the first time and putting yourself into a food coma.
I do also take (when I remember to) GNC Men's Sport Vitapaks, which include GNC's ThermoLean thermogenic fat-loss aid supplements. I don't take them for that reason, more for the multi-vitamin and L-arganine that are also part of the Vitapak, but I felt that they were worth mentioning.
Note - this is a rough "opener" - I'll update this page to include links to my supplements and protein powder shortly. As always, feel free to post comments and I'll be happy to answer them! You can also post up comments on the MuscleHack FB page or send me a FB message.
Have a great day!
