Eat to Live, Eat to be Big


#1

This is the food equivalent of the BOI thread. It is in the bodybuilding section because this isn't about eating "healthy" or to maintain a weight class. This thread is for the guys eating to either be or look like bodybuilders - or at the very least big, bad mofo's. Here is your chance to show and track the part that fuels those badass workouts posted in BOI.

6/2 - OFF DAY, which means low carb

7:00 - 3 whole eggs, 4 slices 95% fat free turkey bacon, 1 like chorizo sausage.

10:00 - 1 scoop whey protein in water, 1 cup strawberries, 8 oz grilled pork tenderloin

12:15 - 8 oz lean hamburger

1:30 - 2 table spoons peanut butter on WW ritz

3:00 - 4 oz grilled sirloin, 4 oz grilled chicken breast

5:00 - 10 oz Italian Beef, spinach salad

6:00 - handfull of Almonds

still to come...

8:00 - 1 scoop whey/cassein blend in water

9:00 - handful of Almonds

I’m loving my Magic Bullet, I really hope it doesn’t start smoking soon! I used it at least twice a day.


#7

Took a shake to bed with me last night for the first time ever.

I’m getting body fat done next week so will be re-evaluating eating volumes after that (getting nutritional analysis done as well).

Last body fat I test I had (14%) was when I was just under 90kg just under a year ago. Now I’m knocking on the door of 98-99kg and am curious to see what kind of progress I’ve made with girths and skinfolds. I’m a bit anxious/excited…

Who likes math?

1-6 eggs, 320z milk, 1 rockstar
2-4 amino acid pills, 2 liver pills, 32oz milk
3-Corn dog, 2 large order of fries, 32 oz milk
4-3 amino acid pills, half gallon of chocolate milk for during the next 3 hours
5-steak, mashed potatoes, corn from the garden, go back for seconds, 32oz milk
6-3 amino acid pills, 4 liver pills
7-32 oz milk
8-32oz milk

Damn…I drink around 2 gallons of milk a day. Never realized that. Calories? Someone do the math for me.

Post-workout @ El Pollo Loco

3 chicken breasts (skin-off about 4-6oz per)
1 drumstick
1 thing of Spanish Rice
8 flour tortillas
2 things of steamed veggies
1 Churro

Meal cost: $13.86

I have no clue what the macros are but it was a stone’s throw away, I was hungry, and the bird is always good at El Pollo. I should have gone to the Chinese/Japanese buffet after I handed over 15 bucks for my meal. I pay 8.99 regardless if its dinner time because the owner thinks of me eating there as a sport. Just like the owner/father-in-law (BWA HA HA HA) down in a joint in a certain latin american country. He literally sits in my booth (he’s done that once) and watches me eat all wide-eyed. lol “You cost me too much money to eat here” he says chuckling. Cool dude

That is quite possibly the most delicious shake idea I’ve ever seen. Good enough for GB is good enough for me.

LOL “1 shit ton of ice”

I honestly haven’t found walnut/mac oil yet. My kroger store just seems to have a huge shelf of EVOO and regular, that’s it. I want to become a connoisseur of oils and they are messing me up!

My shake is so gross now, I have the unflavored protein and all I taste is the EVOO, ew.

BTW funny shit…I brought 25 lbs of cream colored protein to my house tonight, it came in a big ass unmarked plastic bag. After 15 minutes I had them completely convinced it was actually raw testosterone powder, that I could make 500 cc’s per pound and sell 10 cc’s for $100. They were freaking the fuck out lol, I had a whole elaborate story about how a dirty cop was doing the brewing for me and that I had thousands of dollars buried in my parents back yard. They ate up every word haha.

I almost decided to let the story play out but decided that would really suck if they couldn’t keep their mouths shut and I end up with a SWAT team busting down my door for having 25 lbs of test powder lol.

Here’s my diet for the time being, will be introducing more milk shortly.

1: 8 whole eggs, 2 cups oats
2: 3 scoops whey, 1 cup oats, 3 tbsp EVOO, water (shake
3: 2 chicken breasts 1 cup oats

Then I eat natural PB and drink milk until I fall asleep lol. (inability to promptly fall asleep is my nemesis)

Man I thought I ate a decent amount… until I saw what you’re eating.

1.5 lbs of beef in one sitting? That’d kill me.
