Nutrition

Next after training, Diet is the second building block for an exceptional body. My year-round diet is easy, because I stick to the motto: "keep it simple".

My food is made up of proteins, carbohydrates and fats. My preferred sources of protein are beef, chicken, turkey and tuna with protein supplements and amino acids, as well as moderate amounts of dairy products.

My main sources of carbohydrates are rice, oatmeal, rice cakes, potatoes and pasta. I supplement these foods with fats like oils; I cover my vitamin and trace element requirements with vegetables and salads

All year round I consume, including shakes, up to 8 meals a day to provide my body with the necessary building blocks for growth.

I consume about 350 grams of protein and 600-700 grams of carbohydrates and 50 grams of fat daily.

In the pre-contest phase I increase my protein intake to up to 450-500 grams daily and reduce my carbohydrate content accordingly. 

Also I have found in my diet that by using oatmeal as a carbohydrate supplier it helps maintain a slow metabolism and stops cravings by maintaining a constant blood sugar level.

I supplement my diet with traditional products such as protein powders, carbohydrate supplements, amino acids, glutamine, creatine, Omega 3 fatty acids, green tea extract and arginine, and also a good fat burner.

All in all, my diet is simple with a little tailoring to suit my needs, but overall it is very classically designed.
