How, Why and What I Eat.

Lean protein, nutrient dense carbohydrates and healthy fats.
  1. I never measure, but I am organized in portion control and the types of food I choose.
  2. When I have measured myself, I’m consistently around 170 lbs and 6–1 and roughly 10–12% body fat, which is just a guess, since most methods of measurement are HIGHLY inaccurate. I have never, ever, trained to be in condition for any photoshoots. That’s the way I walk around 365 days per year.
  3. One organizational principal that I picked up from Barry Sears’ Zone is to include ALL three macronutrients with every meal or snack. I get similar amounts of calories from fat/protein/carbohydrate. Something the late Daniel Duchaine called, “Iso-Caloric”.
  4. I eat several times per day. It is about convenience and not magic. I NEVER FAST. Skipping breakfast or intermittent fasting would only happen if I chose to skip breakfast for convenience or scheduling. Sleeping 8 hours is enough of a fast for me.
  5. I have never been in ketosis as far as I know. No reason to be.
  6. Mediterranean food is my favorite. Actually the foods from this region and the so called, diet, are rated highly for health. While there is some decent research in this area, there is extreme diversity in the regional foods and lots of evidence is epidemiological. Lots of correlation/causation and not very specific.
  1. Liquids are an elegant delivery system to cram more calories down your pie hole.
