  1. Hi Matt.

    Quick question. Just wondering what your typical diet looks like when you're not dieting or trying to put mass on.

    i wrote about nutrition a while back, check out the post.

    Typically , i do the best I can to always balance high quality protein, with high quality carbs and high quality fat at every meal. Its very simple...

    Best proteins: lean meats like chicken, fish, turkey, beef, eggs, etc.

    Best carbs: fruits and vegs, esp. dark greens and bright colors (kale, spinach, broccoli, blueberries, raspberries, kiwi, pomegranate...

    Best fats: nuts and seeds, olives (oil), coconut (oil), avocado, etc.

    Every meal you pick the best available protein with the best available carb and the best available fat. Constantly mix it up so you get the necessary amount of micronutrients over time, when you balance your nutrition this way regularly, you will be in great health. Think about eating 17 colors a day to force yourself to eat a wide variety of foods.

  4. Thanks Matt.


  5. Just read your atricle in the performance menu. Thanks absolutely brilliant, sometimes i know things and have small ideas then i read your article and it all becomes clear and the penny drops as they say.

    well done and thanks

  6. Hi Matt
    Do you know when will you start posting the next cycle?

  7. Hugh, thanks and keep in touch.

    Filipe, I'm very sorry for slacking on this site. I have been working on other things lately that will make things much better for you and make The Strength Shop a much better resource for everybody. Check back very soon.
