Most people have no problem at all getting in the gym and lifting.

The challenging part is mastering nutrition. Our food is so processed and loaded with so many different things to get you addicted.

Food is literally formulated to get you hooked.

If you’re spinning your wheels with your diet, here’s what I would do:

Start by replacing one meal a day with a whole food meal. Begin by replacing one of your unhealthy drinks with water.

Slow incremental gains reap mega rewards long term.

If you don’t know what to eat, I’ll share my full day of eating to give you some ideas.

I start my morning off with a smoothie.

EVERY SINGLE MORNING. I found out 2 years ago that I was allergic to eggs, so now I’m pretty limited on breakfast choices.

I also cut out dairy and gluten.

I’m not saying either of those is bad, but my ultimate goal is to feel my best every day, so I had to remove them from my diet.

I used to drink close to a gallon of chocolate milk a day when trying to bulk because I always struggled to put on weight and eat multiple meals. I also had Ben and Jerry’s almost every night and tons of other processed garbage. Yes, I was gaining weight. But at what expense? Feeling awful every day.

Over time, I slowly started cutting out everything that I considered to be “bad," and now I consistently feel better than ever.

Here’s what I eat. I would say I average around 2,500 calories a day, but I am slowly pushing it towards 3,000+ by increasing portion sizes to add weight.

Breakfast Smoothie:

  • 12 oz almond milk
  • 1/4 cup of oats
  • Protein powder
  • Almond butter spoonful
  • Chia seeds
  • Hemp seeds
  • Dates
  • Frozen banana
  • Frozen berries


  • Protein shake
  • Apples with almond butter
  • Rice cakes


  • Chicken breast/thighs/drumsticks (switch it up)
  • Mixed peppers/onion with avocado oil
  • Jasmine Rice
  • Avocado


  • Beef
  • Mixed peppers/onion with avocado oil
  • Jasmine Rice
  • Avocado


  • 2 Larabars
  • Fruit

And that’s pretty much it. I do rotate in different meals, but the ingredients are similar: protein, a healthy carb, and fat. I sometimes make sweet potatoes and pasta, and alternate vegetables as well. I’ll make some full-day-of-eating videos to show you guys how simple healthy eating is.

I supplement with fish oil, magnesium glycinate, and vitamin D.

Once you’re able to get past the addictive nature of processed food, it’s easy to stay on course. Yes, there will always be temptation, but every time you give in, you’re reminded of how you'll feel the next day. It’s just not worth it.

I hope this helps someone out there who is struggling to eat better and has no direction. It is time-consuming to prep meals over fast food, but it’s worth it.
