I tend to keep my nutritional approach very simple. I focus on the quality of my food, rather than concerning myself with the caloric content or macronutrient value. I focus on what I need to be eating rather than on what I shouldn’t be eating, and I don’t dwell on the fact that I ate that cookie and had a beer. I always allow for adjustments to be made, and I make improvements as I go. I also eat foods that no one can argue about, and no one can argue that sardines are unhealthy. (Laughs) At the moment, I have been incorporating 16 ounces of freshly juiced vegetables into my daily diet. My favorite vegetables are beet and carrot mixed with a greens powder.
Glutamine is an amino acid that is found in your muscles. Research has shown that after an intense workout, the glutamine levels in your body can drop by as much as 50%. Glutamine is also essential to keep your immune system functioning properly. As we all know, a poor immune system can leave you feeling weak and sick. According to a study by Trinity and All Saints University College, a routine supplementation of glutamine post-workout can help lessen the change of injury, improve immune function and help you recover faster after over training. 2 grams of L-glutamine daily is all that you need.
I totally understand what kind of job you had. I work at a Wally World distribution center. Started in shipping, loading about 3 to 4 full semi’s a day. Didn’t know how much weight I loaded. Then switched to non conveyable. When in dog food, I’d stack about 60k/lbs in 12 hours. That was MUCH easier than shipping. My first year, I struggled. Then I talked to my bro-in-law, who is a personal trainer, found and I started to do good. I was taking creatine and C4 prior to work, and took an Animal Pak with UniLiver every break, while eating protien every 3-4 hours. This brought me to Muscle for Life and The Books. I’m in maintenance department now, and are about to join a gym. I’ve been wanting to get the Legion multi’s and switch to Legion supplements. I’m about done reading BLS, and are gonna start the year one challenge. I’ve aready bought BBLS and Shredded Chef. I get excited every time I think about my goals.
