• SiPhox Health

    The SiPhox home blood test kit analyzes 17 different biomarkers such as Cortisol, Testosterone, Vitamin D, and ApoB, amongst others. If you can afford to do one of these test once a quarter that would be ideal but even if you can only afford to do this once a year that's still way better than what the average person is currently doing.

  • Jocko Whey Protein

    I consume 2.5 protein shakes a day, one as soon as I wake up prior to my workout that consists of of 1.5 servings of protein powder t so that my body has enough fuel to prevent my body from breaking down my lean muscle mass for energy during my workout, and if I'm feeling more sore than usual I will have another before I go to bed to help aid in recovery. Some people do more than 2, but I prefer to get my calories through lean meats, fruits, and vegetables because I enjoy the process of cooking.

  • Thorne Collagen

    I'm a huge fan of coffee and have found a ton of benefit in putting collagen in my coffee post workout. A single serving of Thorne collagen has 14 grams of protein plus the additional benefits of supporting the strength and health of joints, tendons, bones and ligaments. A cup of coffee with a serving of collagen alongside 4-6 pasture raised eggs, a few pieces of sausage, and a slice or two of avocado is my favorite breakfast/post workout meal.

  • Thorne Methylated Multivitamin

    This is a methylated multivitamin that I take in the middle of eating my breakfast to help with absorption. The purpose of a methylated multivitamin is to assure that your giving your body the active form of the vitamin or nutrient you are trying to supplement for. When you take a non methylated multivitamin you aren't getting the active form of the vitamin or nutrient and therefore your body has to convert it into the active form. If you have certain gene mutations you are't able to convert them into the active form and therefore leaving you at a deficiency.

  • Thorne Creatine

    Most creatine goes to your skeletal muscles, which converts creatine into a compound of creatine and phosphoric acid (phosphocreatine or creatine phosphate). Phosphocreatine then helps create adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is a source of energy that your cells use when you exercise. In other words, creatine helps maintain a continuous energy supply to your muscles during intense lifting or exercise.

What I Eat In A Day and Why

I like to keep things quick and easy. As I mentioned above my favorite way to start the day is with a cup of coffee with collagen and the laird superfood creamer that I have linked above alongside 4-6 pasture raised eggs and two pieces of sausage.

Breakfast Calories: 920 and 56 grams of protein

After breakfast I will workout and post workout I will have a protein shake and 8 ounces of 90/10 ground beef, which is really just two hamburger patties, with some cheese and avocado.

Lunch Calories: 620/65 grams of protein

For dinner around 6:30 PM I do some sort of lean protein and vegetables with minimal fat. For instance, an ideal dinner would consist of a chicken breast, a piece of salmon, a steak, or maybe even two more hamburger patties plus some broccoli and fajita veggies, or maybe some beans and corn, or a simple salad and that will typically run you about 450-500 calories.

Dinner Calories: 450-500/40-50 grams of protein

And I'm typically still hungry before I lay down but eating something big before bed just wrecks my sleep. That said, around 8 PM I will have another protein shake which is an additional 100 calories and 21 grams of protein.

Day End Calories: 2,140/ 192 grams of protein
