Who are you and what are you doing?
I am a Men’s Physique competitor, sponsored athlete, and working professional. I have been competing in the Men’s Physique division of the NPC for 3 years. In addition to the aforementioned things, I have written 2 eBooks and countless articles for several websites in the US and internationally. I possess an MBA in pharmaceutical marketing and I work full-time in the biotechnology industry.

How does your diet look?
My diet is pretty straightforward; I eat whole foods every 2-3 hours depending upon my schedule. Each meal is a combination of healthy fats, carbs and protein. I typically drink two protein shakes per day: post-workout and before bed.
My protein sources include: beef, turkey and fish (tilapia, cod and salmon). My carb sources include white potato, sweet potato, vegetables, Jasmine rice and oatmeal. And, my healthy fats come from walnuts and olive oil.

Off-season my caloric intake is around 5,500 calories per day. These calories come from lean meats, healthy fats and complex carbs like oatmeal, Jasmine rice, and potatoes. My in-season diet isn’t all that different; I eat similar foods but in lower quantities.
The dieting process from off-season to in-season takes about 16 weeks. During this time numerous changes are made to the amount of cardio that I perform, as well as, the amount of calories that I consume. I am not fan of fad diets, whether they be carb cycling, IIFYM, keto, etc.
