Big Man Strong Rules To The Game #2: Nutrition
Yo whats up playa?
Yesterday I sent you a link to a very important page
On this page I broke down all of the dumb shit that’s been going on within our little fitness community and how I’m on a mission to dead that shit
I also revealed the Big Man Strong Rules to the game, which is pretty much my manifesto to manning-up and taking control of your training so you can become a bigger, stronger, bad-assed, SOB
As useful as that info was, I also realize that it wasn’t 100% complete.
If you have spent any amount of time working on your physical strength you already know a second equally important component to getting DIESED-UP is your diet.
When it comes to nutrition I’ve got some hard-fast rules I like to follow but before I get into em, lemme warn you…
They are like nothing you’ve ever heard before – if anything my rules are sort of anti-rules and definitely contrarian to what a lot of these so-called gurus say regarding eating properly
With that said, let’s get into it
Rule #1: FUCK DIETS
Yup that’s right… I hate diets
In fact lemme go on record and say no one on this planet hates dieting more than I do
If you are like me… you’ve probably attempted a lot of these dumb-assed diets out there
and if you are like me you probably got sub-par results too
Truth be told, it wasn’t until I made the decision to forgo dieting and focus on the way certain foods made me feel that I any progress with my body composition, muscular strength and size
Through my own testing and tweaking I’ve discovered that I don’t fare well with certain grains and feel wayyyy better when I eliminate them.
I realize this approach isn’t for everyone
What I do usually recommend is that my personal clients try some sort of elimination diet to figure out which foods they can and cannot handle and go from there
No stringent guidelines… no stupid ass barriers
Rule #2: Go FUCKIN CRAZY every once in awhile
If there was one thing all of those years of hopping back and forth on those bullshit-assed diets taught me it was to go nuts every once in awhile
I think burying yourself in a vat of cinnabons and trying to eat yourself out allows you to get a much needed psychological break from the restrictions so many of us fitness-nuts put on ourselves around food
Secondly Iv’e found that occasionally eating my face off during a spell of clean eating can actually pay-off tremendously in the gym.
The influx of simple sugars and the hormonal cascade gained from “cheat meals” often lends to bigger lifts and increased fat loss on the days following
I mean… shit… eating like a fuckin behemoth is also comes with the big man territory
Rule #3: Supplement wisely
I know this one is necessarily about eating per say but I’ve found that so many lifters
relay heavily on powders, shakes and bars that I had to put this in here.
Listen man, supplements are just that… supplements
They are meant to act as a complimentary add-on to the foods you eat.
These muthafuckers who are tossin back 3-shakes a day are dumb-as-hell
Firstly it’s only serving to emptying out their pockets and then there’s the whole susceptibility to intolerance’s thing
Yeah, few people know this whey is one of the most allergenic foods on the planet and these dumb-fucks are pounding it back like its lemonade on a hot summers day
Men all over the world have been getting big, strong and muscular way before these supplements became
the rage… you don’t need em
Focus on eating food, eat whatever the fuck you want and everything else will fall into place…
Alright homie that’s all I got for you today…
