How I eat
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.
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.
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.
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.
