You have made a habit out of making the wrong choices, when it comes to food and eating habits. You have gotten to a place where you believe it doesn’t matter.. It does matter. It always matters all the time. And that is extreme.. But I have my goals. LET’S GO EAT. They ask me how do they go about getting big.. Well, you gotta eat big to get big. I’m intense about my habits and they’re buried very deeply inside of me. Because I’ve been persistent about practicing them. A lot of people think I’ve never had a problem or any temptation for other stuff .. .. I do. But I look at the choices I have before when it comes to food. Now I’m ready to go to the gym.. Lift some weights. I ask myself ‘What price am I gonna pay?’ When I do indulge, or have indulge, I don’t like the price that I pay. If you want me to work efficiently, you want me to have energy, be on my game, be aware and wide-open.. Then you gotta feed me good fuel. That’s your body saying that. The most important thing about nutrition is protein. Simply because protein is what builds muscle. Point simple. You can get that good kinda healthy food at every place, so there’s no excuse anymore. It don’t get no better then that. The last year’s Olympia I had my one cheat meal, and pretty much jumped right back on the diet. What I did was diet for the whole year. I ate at the same time that I do when I’m pre-contest, ate the same time in the off-season. Pretty much had the same food, grits for breakfast, second meal chicken, third meal chicken.. Fourth meal stake, fifth meal turkey. And the 6th meal was a protein shake. Now here’s the kicker for what I do in order to gain weight. Instead of me taking in like 250 grams of carbs a day I can now go up to about 600 all the way up to 1000 grams a day. Of course it’s harder, but I want to be better. And I gotta do as Mr. Olympia what it takes to be better. That was my motivation right there. One is not enough for a big guy like me. You gotta eat good food, and if you don’t eat a fair amount of good food you’re not gonna get big. It took me a very long time to learn this.
