How I eat

Break­fast

I’ve had is­sues with not feel­ing hun­gry since I was born, so when I got into this sport, I had to train my ap­petite as much as my body. I wake up by do­ing car­dio; that’s like my cof­fee. Then I have three fried eggs, about half a grilled chicken breast and a bowl of sweet­ened rice por­ridge. Break­fast is my favourite meal, be­cause I have a sweet tooth. I sup­ple­ment my meals with mul­ti­vi­ta­mins, joint for­mula and omega 3, 6 and 9 tablets.

Lunch

In be­tween train­ing, my in­take in­cludes a pro­tein shake, grilled chicken breast and steamed white rice, then grilled salmon and rice. I put ketchup on ev­ery­thing to make it tastier.

Snacks

I don’t like to snack be­cause of the amount of food I eat – five to six meals a day – and a snack would kill the ap­petite for my next meal.

Din­ner

Chicken breast, rice and greens is my last meal of the day. Ev­ery week, I plan to lose 2-3 lbs of body weight, so I’m al­lowed a cheat meal. My wife likes pizza and thinks I’m crazy be­cause I pre­fer sushi. But I do go to the Cheese­cake Fac­tory for dessert.

Flex Lewis is ap­pear­ing at BodyPower at the NEC, Birm­ing­ham, 11-13 May, bodypower.com/expo/uk
