Okay guys, it seems like a few of you are interested in John Berardi’s Massive Eating diet. After hearing about it at the Orlando NHB Seminar, I knew it was exactly what I needed. As I have not been taking in enough calories or protein to grow.
I don’t want to make this post too long. So I’ll give you the formulas once you guys reply. Because there are several formulas that you need to use to figure out the real amount of calories that you need to gain muscle.
Also, John said he would be publishing this diet on T-mag in the near future. So I’m sure he’ll give a lot more detail as to the how’s and why’s.
Okay, here are some basic tips: 1) Avoid high levels of blood fats and carbs at the same time. 2) Increase blood levels of carbs and protein OR Increase blood levels of protein and fats. 3) Determine best overfeeding diet: a. Try 8 weeks using 50 percent carbs, 25 percent protein, 15 percent fat. b. Try 8 weeks using 30 percent carbs, 40 percent protein, 30 percent fat (figure out which one is best for you). 4) DO NOT eat high carb meals alone 5) DO NOT eat moderate/high carb meals with high fat intake 6) DO eat protein meals in comination with moderate carbs and low fat 7) DO eat protein meals with moderate fat and low carbs
Also, John recommends that everyone use 6-10 grams of fish oils (DHA EPA), and Vitamins C and E. The best brand of fish oil is Member’s Mark. This is sold at Sam’s and other warehouse clubs. Also, they are inexpensive and sell other good supplements such as the Vitamin C and E.
Okay guys, if you want to know more just tell me, and I'll give you the formulas and some more tips. And if John Berardi would like to comment, I'm all for hearing from him! You are the man John! And I give John all the credit for this diet. I am only the messenger.
