‘Matt’s diet needs to be accurate in terms of calories and macronutrients, but also easy to stick to. I’m happy to see he’s been following it to the letter and that’s been a major factor in how Matt has seen his body fat plummet over the first stage of his Upgrade.
‘As his WBFF show approached, Matt’s calories had to come down, and with limited carbohydrates and fats to burn for energy
– he was in calorie deficit – he found it hard working with quite a high training volume. But that’s the reality of getting as cut as you need to be to compete in physique competitions at the highest level.
‘Now, Matt’s back to eating seven times a day, taking on around 2,500 calories including a post-workout Optimum Nutrition Platinum Hydrobuilder shake, which has 35g of protein, over 13.5g of essential amino acids and 5g of creatine – all of which are vital for repairing and building Matt’s poor muscles after a tough session with me.’
