What I Eat On A Typical Day…

use these tips and suggestions in your own daily meal plan.

I usually prepare breakfast within 5 minutes of waking up.

Breakfast for me isn’t always the same, but I generally eat eggs with whatever else i’m having.

So, how do you like your eggs?

It depends how I feel, I might I have an omelette, boiled eggs, or scrambled eggs.

Option #1: Boiled Eggs for Breakfast

If I decide to have boiled eggs for breakfast, I’ll put 3-4 eggs in a pot and let it boil for 15 minutes.

Option #2: Omelettes for Breakfast

If I decide to eat an omelette, I’ll mix into a bowl, 2 whole eggs, 4 egg whites, half cup tomatoes, lettuce or spinach.

I’ll use a non-stick olive oil cooking spray on the pan, then pour in omelette mixture and let it cook for 10-15 minutes.

How I Cut Out Bad Carbs and Sugars to Burn Fat and Feel Great

ice-cream and cake, If it satisfied my hunger, I was happy.

I never really gave much thought to eating healthy, as long as I was going to the gym regularly and training hard, all was good.

My workouts have been always pretty intense anyway, so no matter how many cookies or bowls of cereal I ate, I would never feel guilty about it. I just wanted to look big and strong.

A lot of bodybuilders today, say that you need to eat anything and everything during off peak, in order to bulk up. In some ways this is true. But what If you want to get big without all the bulk? That’s what I have been wanting to do for years, but I had no idea where to start.

I had a friend that used to say to me jokingly, yet he was serious, “Justin, if you want to build muscle and get ripped, you need to go on a “See Food Diet”. In other words, any food you see, “EAT IT”!

I tried that for years, but I never managed to achieve the kind of body I wanted. What I really wanted was, to look big, lean and muscular, without all the bulk (fat).

Here’s a photo of what I looked like before I learned what foods to eliminate.

Yummy High Protein Veggie Omelette (Video)

high-protein-veggie-omeletteAfter an intense cardio and core workout at the gym, I decided to make a short video on a yummy little high protein veggie omelette I cooked today. Irish style :).

You might think I should have added more ingredients for flavor, but I can’t be too picky since I’ll be competing in a few weeks time. Trying to keep my body fat as low as possible.

This is a very basic and easy to cook omelette, with most of the calories coming from the eggs rather than the vegetables.

To reduce the calories, I used two medium sized eggs and two egg whites. I rarely, if ever count my calories. But if you would like to know, there is 70 calories per egg, which means 140 calories and two egg whites, 34 calories.

Top Whey Protein Powders For Maintaining and Increasing Lean Muscle Mass

Top-Whey-Protein-Powders-For-Maintaining-and-Increasing-Lean-Muscle-MassWhat are the top whey protein powders for maintaining and increasing lean muscle mass?

It can be difficult to decide which one to choose.

I’ve tried lots of supplements myself, so I have a fair idea which ones gave me the best results and which ones didn’t.

Before I tell you what my favorite protein powders are, I just want to share a funny story about a friend of mine.

Not too long ago a mate of mine went out and bought himself a 10LBS bag of Gold Standard Whey Protein.

His philosophy was only to spend one day lifting weights and for the rest of the week drink protein shakes every day.

He thought he could still gain muscle as long as he drank protein shakes every day.

It was hard not to laugh at him, and when I told him he needs to lift weights more than one day a week in order to build lean muscle, he wouldn’t listen.

It’s funny to think, but there are guys out there that make this mistake.

Protein is an essential building block in the body that will assist you in gaining muscle, but of course, you need to put in the work at the gym.

I try to drink at least 2-3 protein shakes each day along with my meals because I lift weights 4-5 days a week and enough protein to maintain and help promote muscle gains.

In total, I get 50g of protein and 30g carbs per meal. I never bothered counting calories. No need to. I’m not competing in any competitions, but when I do then It makes more sense to count calories to help reach a specific body fat percentage.
