Hey guys I have had a lot of people asking me lately about my diet, thought I’d go ahead and give you a rundown. I finished up a mini cut a few weeks ago, and have since transitioned into a bulk. Now I’ve tried pretty much all the diets, paleo, flexible dieting, Keto etc. I’m not counting macros like I use to when I would diet, and I’m not eating everything that doesn’t try to eat me like I have done traditional when bulking. I’m simply eating too obtain my goals, important things I consider in my food choices are digestibility, and nutrient density.
I majority of my carbs come from white/jasmine rice products. I know what you’re thinking, why not use brown rice? Well it taste bad for one, digests slower making it harder to eat large quantity’s and the Glycemic Index can pretty much be thrown out the window when eating meals with proteins and fats. Also I consume carbs pre, Intra, and post workout in the form of
Highly Branched cyclic dextrin, Karbolyn, or Vitargo.
Proteins are almost all lean proteins, I will add in fatty cuts of meat when I need more cals. I tend to lean towards mostly lean red meat because it’s much more palatable then say chicken breast. Red meat has a terrific amino acid profile and is filled with essential vitamins and minerals.
Fats are in place at a few meals, and will eventually be added to all meals as I continue to try to push the scale weight up. I do tend to keep fats lower around pre and post training to not slow down digestion. The sources I use are almond butter, peanut butter, olive oil, coconut oil, and avocados.
