FS: Sure, I have tried all of the diets. Everything under the sun from: eating right for your blood type to the Atkins diet. What I have found out is that I workout so hard that I can pretty much eat anything that I want. What I have to ask myself is how does what I am eating make me feel when it goes in? What I do is eat 5-6 small high quality meals a day.
Breakfast : Three scrambled eggs, two slices of wheat toast, a couple slices of bacon, a cup of coffee, and a glass of orange juice.
Pre-lunch : An apple and a banana
Lunch : Chicken sandwich and some pieces of fruit
Mid afternoon : Some kind of meat and some vegetables
Dinner : Steak, apple salad
Late night snack : Cheese, crackers, some meat, and fruit
MM: Do you have a cheat day in which you eat whatever you want?
FS: Not anymore. I cheat whenever I want which is not very often. I have been eating well for a long time and if I eat some junk food, I feel terrible.
MM: Do you take any nutritional supplements?
FS: I have tried everything in the world except steroids and I have noticed only very minor results from each supplement that I have taken. Right now I just take a good multivitamin and something for my joints. Other than that, I just eat really well and hydrate very well. As a result, I never get sick and the only injuries I get are from my work (laughing).
MM: Since you train several times a day, are a lot of your meals after your workouts for post workout recovery?
FS: Yes, I always eat in that window of 30-90 minutes after my workouts.
MM: Do you avoid caffeine?
FS: The max that I have is one cup of coffee per day. Caffeine dehydrates me and makes my mouth dry up. I avoid caffeine wherever possible. However, I also run several businesses and need something to keep my brain going. Other than that, I do not take any asprin or any medications.
