HUNGRY LIKE THE WOLF
How Manganiello fuels the Werewolf Workouts that build his impressive frame
Fortunately there’s more to Manganiello’s diet than ripping sheep limb from limb under a full moon – in fact there’s hardly any of that at all – but it’s still pretty goddamn manly, as detailed in his book Evolution. Here’s a typical day’s feeds.
MEAL 1 No-added-sugar protein bar
MORNING WORKOUT Turn the page for details
MEAL 2 Post-workout protein shake
MEAL 3 One hour after post-workout shake, egg whites, ham and cheese omelette with bacon or sausage, vegetables and a cup of coffee.
MEAL 4 An organic chicken breast, butterflied and grilled with a little olive oil and seasoning, with a vegetable stir-fry: heat 1tbsp olive oil and add 1 chopped red pepper, 50g green beans and 1tbsp capers and cook for 4min, then add 50g halved cherry tomatoes and a handful of pitted black olives and cook for 2min, then add a handful of chopped spinach and cook for 1min. Serve drizzled with 1tbsp balsamic vinegar.
MEAL 5 A large fillet steak, pan-cooked with a crushed garlic clove. Steam a handful of broccoli florets and a handful of cauliflower florets and serve with the steak.
MEAL 6 Protein shake before bed
