The diet...I dont know how they do it.

<--------That is Ronnie Coleman. 7 time Mr. Olympia. Hes 40 years old and his contest weight is 300 pounds 300 pounds I say He can bench press 600+ pounds and deadlift 800+ pounds. He can CURL 200+ pounds. Oh and body building to him is nothing but a hobbie. His "other" job is a police officer. He has to have his uniform and bullet proof vest custom made to fit him. Now the hardest thing about body building is what you think? Is it the workouts? nah....Its the diet. I have been eating a modified version of a body builders diet. which I came up with and for the most part its worked while Ive been on it that is. Anyway. Some of the things they eat most of the time. Chicken breast is the main food. brocoli, Salad (with no dressing) They drink protien shakes and eat protien bars (which actaully I dont mind they grow on you after awhile) The one thing I have NOT been able to get used to and as I type this I have a glass of it right now that Im drinking.

What could it be? What could it be? RAW EGG WHITES! Now the difference between egg whites and regular eggs is that its just the white part the yolk has been taken out. Though you wouldnt think that by looking at it since it almost looks like orange juice. People with high cholesterol often get these so they can have eggs without the fat. Well bodybuilders can get the protien without the fat. However per 1 egg worth of egg white you get about 3 grams of protein. So you have to eat about oh 30-40 egg whites a day. Thats almost half a gallion PER DAY. Im sitting here thinking WTF! they are crazy. I drink 4 egg white per glass that I have. I try to have 2 glasses of it a day. I get my protien from other meats like chicken or bars and shakes. When I first tried it I alsmot threw up. Now mind you I dont throw up easily. I rarely ever puke. The taste hmm the taste I would say isnt what gets you but the texture of it. Have you ever swallowed a lugi? I mean really THICK one...Its similar to that but on a larger scale when trying to gulp down a glass its like gulping down a odd tasteing lugi. Now the texture is nasty but the taste of it is just weird...I really cant compare it to anything else Ive ever eaten. You would simply have to try it to understand. Now Ive tried a number of things Ive tried mixing it in my protien shake...yea...that doesnt taste so good. Imagine chocolate eggs...PLAH! I tried watering it down so it wasnt so thick and slimy...It helped get it down alittle faster but doesnt really help much. Today I tried mixing it with none-fat milk. Now milk actaully does help with it The only problem is I dont want to drink too much milk. I have it with my protien shake and I have two of those a day so have it with egg white on top of that doesnt help. Its fat free sure but still thats too much milk.

Why cant you just cook it you ask? Well even with egg white which have no fat..when you fry them they soak up the greese in the pan and become fattening. There are some cooking oils that you can get that are better for you. But even then you are in a way burning off some of the needed nutrients. You might only get half of the needed protien if its cooked vs eating it raw. Say you get 3 grams of protien per egg white. you cook it and you might only get 2 or even 1 depending on how long you cook it. Same with any food. Like chicken breast for example. If you fry or grill it you get less of course you can eat it raw so you have to either boil it which is the best way. Or bake it.

Sigh...There has to be a better way

I wonder, if I got all muscled up like that, would the women be throwing themselves at me? I'm thinking they would. LOL

I could never do egg whites. I hate eggs. I don't mind the little bits of them on fried rice, but I could never eat an egg by itself.

Come into my realm! You aren't afraid...are you?

Ew....raw egg whites. I commend ya man, that is one extremely hard to do thing!

Sadly, I don't even know anything that could be a good sub for raw egg whites...since my toe has healed up, I've been working out like mad (not including sex), and have started seeing inches disappear.

I'm leaving the site end of March. To those who want to keep in touch, see blog for details.

nick - me I actaully really like eggs...and I love deviled eggs thats my favorite...I could go through a dozen deviled eggs easy..though I pay for it later ....and actaully I think women like muscular men but not like that...but their are the "groupies" so its all good

Popmuse - yea they arent good...I think I might stop eating them that way...and congrats on the loss of the inches I commend you on that.

cock - Well its not really the "look" I admire...its the dedication and strength of will that I admire in bodybuilders. Granted I do not want to look like them. and I dont want to be huge like them either. I want to be how should I put it "balanced". But the diet for loseing body fat is the same no matter what...this is why I eat raw egg whites...though...Im thinking about not eating them that way anymore. Its just freaking gross...

I read somewhere that these guys get up in the middle of the night to eat and drink their protein shakes. Not counting the exercises the diet alone is a lot of work.

Soy - Well I never read that. Most good body builders know that they need 8 hours sleep for recovery. Because if you dont recover properly you dont gain muscle mass. I do know that they will often eat 6-8 times a day and their last meal is typically nothing but protien before bed. But Ive never heard of getting up in the middle of the night. I guess if they wanted a snack in the middle of the night that would make sense. It could be that some of those people think they need to keep their metabolism up during the night but if you do that you dont get the rest. And recovery is important. every 3 months or so they will take a week or two off from lifting to let their muscles recover. Ill have to look into that.
