We’ve all been there. Injuries happen. Life happens. Regardless of your reason, I am here to help you get back into the gym and on a structured eating and supplement regiment. You have a dream about what your body should look like, so put down the Bud Light, it’s time to get to work.

healthy-n2bm

Chances are you currently aren’t eating small meals through out the day, haven’t been to the gym regularly in weeks or even months and don’t even know where to start. That’s okay. Over the next 5 days, we are going to evaluate your current eating, supplementation and training habits and then implement 5 changes (minimum) to get you where you want to be by the end of the 5 days.

At the end of the 5 days, my goal is to have you back into a routine. Once you are back into a routine of going to the gym regularly, eating small meals throughout the day and following a proper supplement regiment, you can start perfecting things. Remember that you need to walk before you can run.

Chapter 1: Working the Steps.

Step 1: Assess your current eating and training habits. Decide where you want to be

A) Ask yourself what you want to change. Pick a minimum of 5 things. Be honest with yourself. Don’t just do this mentally. Write this down so you have something concrete. Be specific with your goals. Here are 5 examples but please do set some of your own.

1) Drink more water

2) Eat a minimum of 2 servings of vegetables per day

3) Eat 6 small meals a day that all contain protein

4) Weight train 5 days a week

5) Perform 30 minutes of cardio 3 days a week

1) __________________________________________

2) __________________________________________

3) __________________________________________

4) __________________________________________

5) __________________________________________

B) Different people have different ideas of clean eating. An example of clean eating is listed at the end that includes animal protein sources. You have the option to make substitutions based on personal and religious reasons.

Expanding on that, everyone has different goals when it comes to training. An example workout program is listed at the end. If you have any current injuries or specific goals you can modify the program to your specific needs. However, this program will be a good starting point for most people looking to add lean muscle mass and decrease body fat.

Step 2: Know your caloric needs

Calculate your energy expenditure to see what calories you require daily and what portion sizes you should be eating. The macronutrient breakdown I recommend is 40% carbohydrates, 40% protein and 20% fat. You can use calculators to find out the macronutrient contents of your favorite foods, or follow the diet example I have listed at the end.

To find out how much you should be eating: calculate your TDEE. A good simple way is juts to take your desired bodyweight and multiply it by 12. That equation should give you your caloric maintenance level. So a guy that wants to be 200lbs would multiply that number by 12, which would give him about 2,400 calories per day to maintain that much muscle mass. An athlete trying to cut down to say 185 would need to times that number by 12, which would give him 2,220 calories per day. This is the best way to find the caloric maintenance for your desired bodyweight. For guys bulking, you may want to add an extra 10% – 15% of your caloric intake on training days to offset calories burned.

Most people are surprised to find out how much they are under-eating. Muscle is a very energy demanding tissue in the body. Each pound of muscle requires approximately 50 calories per day just to maintain its function. Eating too little is just as bad as eating too much. Remember it’s all about balance. Think of your body as a high performance racecar. You want to fuel it optimally so you can perform at a high level, look and feel great.

If you are currently under eating you will need to slowly work your way up to the required calorie level over weeks and months. Start with 60-70% of the calories you should be eating and add 100 calories to your diet every 2-3 weeks. Don’t ever force food and make yourself feel sick.

Step 3: Take action now

Implement the 5 changes (minimum) over the next 5 days. Keep them quantitative so you can measure progress and make sure you implemented all the changes. For example, if your goal is to eat more frequently, set a number of how many meals you want to eat per day, and track yourself. Give yourself a nice big checkmark on a calendar (paper or your smartphone) every day that you accomplish this goal.

Keep that checklist on the fridge or on your phone so you are currently reminded of the changes you want to make. The first few days are the hardest because you are redeveloping a routine.

Chapter 2: Putting It All Together – The diet

A) Diet characteristics

  • 6 small meals a day
  • Protein at every meal
  • 10 cups of water a day
  • 1-2 treat meals a week
  • Any spices you like except salt which is to be used in moderation
  • 1-2 pieces of fruit
  • Coffee is okay but with no cream and low calorie sweetener/honey

PLUS whatever changes you wrote down in step one that isn’t already included in the above list.

B) Meals ideas

The ideas follow this pattern: Pair one serving of protein (vegetable or animal) with 1-2 servings of vegetables and (option) one serving of complex carbohydrates. Examples:

1) Braised beef with grilled broccoli, onion and sweet potato

2) Whey protein powder mix with almond milk

3) Beef & vegetable chili

4) Veggies with hummus

5) Egg whites with oats

C) The following sample diet is an example of how to eat in a given week. You may substitute things of similar caloric value while keeping in mind the challenge characteristics listed under A. You may also switch the meals around. The diet plan is created for a 180-pound male who is getting back into the gym after a lay off. Either increase or decrease portion sizes to make the diet tailored to you.

Food is the most anabolic thing you can put in your body. There is no questioning this. The goal of weight training, taking supplements and performance enhancing drugs is to create an anabolic environment. I’m going to use the analogy of a construction site. Creating the anabolic environment would be the process of hiring an engineering team to draft blue prints, renting all the needed equipment and hiring a construction crew.

grocery list

Having the entire crew and blue prints ready is great, but nothing can be built until the raw materials are present. You can have the best construction team on the planet, the best blue prints money can buy, but if you don’t have the concrete, base boards and materials needed to build the project, it will all go to waste. The same is true with your body. You can train like an animal in the gym, take every supplement known to mankind, use an aggressive drug protocol but if the raw materials for building the muscle aren’t present (food), you will never accomplish your goals. What you eat will make or break your progress. Point black.

Similarly, what you eat effects your metabolism and how efficiently your body metabolizes fatty acids. Everyone has heard the statement:  Weight gain/loss = calories in – calories out.
That is completely correct, you cannot argue with the laws of physics. But what that statement fails to take into account is what you eat (calories in), affects your metabolism (calories out) and how optimal it is for your body to metabolize fatty acids as fuel. I created this grocery list to turn you into a muscle building, fat burning machine.

Animal Protein

Protein will be the basis of your diet. Protein is what our bodies are made of. Muscle tissue, skin, hair, bones, hormones and enzymes are all made of protein. Protein is the single most important nutrient for the bodybuilder. As an added bonus, protein is the hardest macronutrient for your body to turn into adipose tissue (fat).

Red meat, poultry and fish are rich in protein and cholesterol. As an added bonus, red meat is naturally high in creatine and L-carnitine, and the essential fatty acids in fish promote fat breakdown and increase testosterone levels.

Best Options

  • Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast (ideally organic) – Breasts or Ground
  • Boneless, Skinless Turkey Breast (ideally organic) – Breasts or Ground
  • Beef Top Round Steaks or Roast, Top Sirloin, Tenderloin, Flank steam or Eye of Round (ideally from grass fed beef)
  • Egg Whites and Eggs (ideally organic and free range)
  • Wild Game Meat (Bison, Elk, Deer)
  • Tuna (water packed)
  • Wild Caught Fatty Fish (salmon, trout, sardines)
  • Wild Caught Lean Fish (cod, sole, halibut, snapper)

Moderate Options

  • Shrimp
  • Extra Lean Ground Beef or Ground Round (92-96%) (ideally from grass fed beef)
  • Pork Tenderloin (ideally organic)

Complex Carbohydrates
Carbohydrates are your bodies preferred energy source, fueling muscle contraction and brain function. Complex carbohydrates are long chains of glucose linked together called polysaccharides. Their long chains cause them to be digested slowly and provide sustained energy levels. Carbohydrates also cause the pancreas to release insulin. Insulin is the most anabolic hormone in your body. Carbohydrates are essential to fuel your workouts and provide the energy your body needs to repair and build muscle tissue.

Best Options

  • Sweet Potatoes (yams)
  • Quinoa
  • Oatmeal (old fashioned, steel cut or quick oats)
  • Brown Rice

Moderate Options

  • Potatoes (red, baking, new)
  • Oat Bran Cereal
  • Cream of Rice Cereal
  • Rice Krispies Cereal
  • Brown Rice Pasta
  • Rice (white, jasmine, basmati, Arborio, wild)
  • Amaranth
  • Canned Pumpkin

Fibrous Carbohydrates
Unlike complex carbohydrate, fibrous carbohydrates are mainly cellulose. Your body cannot digest cellulose, causing these carbohydrates to be very minimal in calories. Fibrous carbohydrates are high in vitamins, minerals and fiber. Consider these carbohydrates as your ‘filler’ foods. These carbohydrates should be eaten at times when you do not need an energy source, like right before bed.

Best Options

  • Green Leafy Lettuce (Green Leaf, Red, Leaf, Romaine)
  • Broccoli
  • Asparagus
  • Mushrooms
  • Cauliflower
  • Celery
  • Spinach
  • Kale

Moderate Options

  • String Beans
  • Bell Peppers
  • Brussels Sprouts

Other Produce & Fruits
These carbohydrates have high sugar content, making them rapidly digested and assimilated. These carbohydrates are optimal for times when you want an immediate energy source, like right before your workout or immediately after to replace depleted glycogen levels. Eat these carbohydrates sparingly when not around your workout time.

Best Options

  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Tomatoes
  • Zucchini
  • Lemons or Limes

Moderate Options

  • Carrots
  • Cucumber
  • Green or Red Pepper
  • Fruit: bananas, apples, grapefruit, peaches, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, black berries, cantaloupe, watermelon, pineapple

Healthy Fats
Fats are essential for hormone production, particularly testosterone levels. Protein and carbohydrates should make the premise of your diet, but healthy fats still have their place and should still be included in your diet. As a general rule, if a meal is higher in fat, you will want to reduce the carbohydrates in that meal. Fats have 9 calories per gram, where as protein and carbohydrates have 4 calories per gram. Healthy fats should compromise about 20% of the calories in your diet.

Best Options

  • Coconut Oil
  • Macadamia Nut Oil
  • Flaxseed Oil
  • Avocado
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Moderate Options

  • Nuts (peanuts, almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, brazil nuts)
  • Natural Style Peanut Butter or Almond Butter
  • Seeds (flaxseed, chia seed, pumpkin seed, sunflower seed)

Dairy & Eggs
Similar to animal protein, dairy and eggs are great sources of protein. Eggs have the highest biological value of any protein source available. The casein protein found in dairy coagulates in your stomach and can take up to 8 hours to fully digest, making it a great choice to eat around bedtime.

Best Options

  • Low-fat Cottage Cheese (Wet or Dry)
  • Eggs
  • Egg Whites

Moderate Options

  • Low-fat Greek Yogurt (plain)
  • Low or Non-Fat Milk

Beverages
The human body is roughly 70% water. Every cell, tissue and organ in your body needs water to function correctly. Your body uses water to maintain its temperature, remove waste and lubricate joints. Water helps improve the digestive process and is imperative in maintaining a healthy digestive system. In order to move and flex your muscles, you need water. Water is essential for good health.

Best Options

  • Bottled Water
  • Sparkling Water
  • Green Tea
  • Coffee
  • Peppermint Tea

Moderate Options

  • Mineral Water
  • Powerade Zero

Condiments & Misc.
Most condiments are high in calories and should be avoided. The condiments I have listed have minimal calories and most have health benefits associated with them. Apple cider vinegar, for example, is antimicrobial, lowers blood sugar, protects against cancer and is full of natural enzymes to help with digestion. Cinnamon has been shown to lower the insulin response of a meal and increase insulin sensitivity in muscles. Sea salt is rich in trace minerals and essential for muscle contraction and keeping hydrated.

Best Options

  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Mustard
  • Hot Sauce
  • Sea Salt
  • Cinnamon
  • Cocoa Powder (not hot chocolate mix)

Moderate Options

  • Reduced Sodium Soy Sauce
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Salsa
  • Sugar Free Ketchup
  • Chili Paste
  • Extracts (vanilla, almond, etc.)
  • Low Sodium beef or chicken broth
  • Chili powder
  • Mrs. Dash
  • Pasta Sauce

Supplements & Misc.
A good diet can be turned great through the use of supplements. Whey protein isolate and casein protein provide the high quality dairy proteins, but without the sugar or fat associated with dairy. Carbohydrate powders are a great asset to use around workouts when you want a carbohydrate source that doesn’t need to be digested and won’t cause stomach distress. A greens powder and psyllium husk fiber will help your body remove wastes and maintain an alkaline PH.

  • Whey Protein Isolate
  • N2Detox
  • Casein Protein
  • Carbohydrate Powder (waxy maize, karbolyn, highly branched cyclic dextrin)
  • MLFB Greens Powder
  • Psyllium Husk Fiber
  • N2Slin

With the start of the New Year I often see people contemplate starting to try and live a healthier lifestyle but often don’t because they fear the unknown. People often wonder “What is the right diet for me?” or “how should I be training for maximum progress?” Or “what supplements do I use?” and it all gets so confusing some rather not take any action at all than make a wrong decision.

new year resolution question

Starting any new endeavor is daunting. There is always the possibility of failure. No one wants to fail. Especially if it’s something you are passionate about. I often find that people would rather not try at all, than to try and possibly fail. With the first option it’s easy to say “Oh, I just didn’t try.” In the second option, you have to admit that you did try and weren’t successful.

Here’s the thing – every successful person I have ever met has failed, and usually not just once. Usually, more times then they can count. I can speak from personal experience that I learn more from trying something and not succeeding, then trying something and succeeding. Sometimes, failure is a blessing in a disguise.

Remember that failure is an event, not a person.

Setbacks and failure are inevitable. What makes a champion is how you deal with them. Do you give up or do you keep trying? It is only through failure that you really see how strong you are. Failure is an opportunity to learn more about yourself and what it takes to succeed.

I tell every person who comes to me for coaching to remember that placing dead last is better then not finishing, which is better then did not even trying.

“I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying.”
Michael Jordan

“Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”
Winston Churchill

As we continue this New Year, please remember to always try your very best, to put everything you have into your diet and training. One day you will wake up, look in the mirror and really like what you see. That day, you will taste success.

Cheat meals: everyone’s favorite topic. Questions regarding cheat meals are the most common questions I get asked. How often can they be incorporated into a diet, what’s off limits, what do I recommend?

cheat-meals

Typical Out-of-Control Cheat Meal

First, a cheat meal is not supposed to be an amateur episode of Man Versus Food. I have seen people blow a weeks’ worth of work by a single cheat meal. I am guilty of this myself. Eating an entire jar of Nutella or gallon of ice cream in one sitting is counterproductive to your goals, no matter what your goals are.

I like to use the analogy of a sponge. When you are training hard and eating clean, your body is going to get depleted. Your glycogen levels will be very minimal, thyroid levels will start to drop, and leptin levels will be suppressed. Anecdotally, most people notice this by feeling cold, feeling tired, and not getting the same pump and aggression as normal when training.  Your body is like a shriveled sponge at this point. It will basically absorb back into the liver and muscle cells any calories you ingest. However anything above and beyond what your body needs to replenish will be stored as body fat. A general rule I like to use for a cheat meal is to double the number of calories in a meal that you would normally eat.  For example, if a 200-pound male is eating 6 600-calorie meals per day, on his cheat day he should consume 5 600-calorie meals and 1-1200 calorie meal.

Besides the physical benefits, the secondary benefit to the cheat meal is to enjoy foods outside of your diet and break the monotony of eating the same food choices every day.  You should enjoy the social aspect as much as the physical aspect of the caloric reefed. This is why I always recommend timing your cheat meals for when it’s a friend’s birthday, mother’s day or other social event so you can enjoy the social aspect of the meal, as well as the physical.

The same guidelines about trying to eat wholesome, non-processed nutrient rich foods in your everyday diet also apply to your cheat meal. I want you to go out and enjoy yourself and eat whatever you’re craving but don’t just go out and eat junk. Try to stick with calorie dense nutritious options like a quality burger with sweet potato fries, homemade spaghetti and meat balls, or a turkey dinner with all the trimmings. Personally, my favorite cheat meals usually involve breakfast foods. 6 whole eggs, with a big plate of pancakes and sugar free syrup, and some melon on the side is one of my favorite cheat meals.

The last point I want to address is frequency. For the average person, a cheat meal frequency of one meal per week is optimal. However, the leaner you are, the more cheat meals you will need because your metabolism is faster and you have less of energy (body fat) reserves stored. In other words, someone in competition shape may require 3 cheat meals per week. If you have a significant amount of body fat to loose, cheat meals should be limited to maximum once per week.

You afraid your cheat meals will be too big? need help? try N2Slin:  

What is N2Slin? Why use it?  It’s a nutrient partitioner that helps you store glucose in muscle tissue instead of fat tissue during cheat meal spill-over.  Imagine, eat bigger cheat meals without worrying about gaining bodyfat!

Dear N2BM Family,

I have a special treat for you today!

My good friend and N2BM.com writer “RussianStar” gives you another great short article to digest. He cuts through the BS and gives you the real information you need to make a decisions about what chemicals to put in your body to build muscle and burn fat, and which ones to stay away from to spare your heath. He just condenses all this info into a short read that you can understand easily, and if you want to do a little extra reading, the links to the University Studies that he uses to back his claims are all listed at the bottom of the article.

Today RussianStar is going to tear apart the myths about “Icariin” a very powerful chemical that is very much misunderstood and you’ll learn why why some researchers may even compare it to Viagra in it’s form of action.. Most of you know “Icariin” as the active chemical in Horney Goat Weed, and many Bodybuilders swear by this chemical’s effects, while other have been disappointed with under-dose cheap “Horney Goat Weed” products that just didn’t deliver enough “Icariin” to do anything. Read on see how “Icariin” will help you in the gym and in the bedroom and why this is such a powerful ingredient to use during Post Cycle Therapy and beyond.

HCGenerate ES and what gives it that “Extra Strength”

Here it is guys, from our good friend RussianStar:

The Icariin in Horney Goat Weed and it’s effects by RussianStar.

HCGenErection-VerticalLets face it, what makes a man, a real man? At the top of the list you would probably say, sex drive, or libido… That always scores highly.

If you look on any bodybuilding forum, the number of times someone is posting questions and feeling really worried because they are on cycle and everything has stopped working down there, or they are mid PCT, or even months after a cycle is finished, and they don’t have the desire or stiffness required to have daily intercourse with their mate. Search the forums and you will find thousands of threads on the subject of how many men have their dicks go limp for not using Steroids properly, and not running a proper PCT. The reason being, it’s a big problem, there aren’t many solutions, and it makes a guy feel pretty useless to not be able to get it up, when she needs it and wants it up and hard too.

They say prevention is better than a cure, so the very powerful prevention I recommend is using HCGenerate ES with every cycle and even after PCT. HCGenerate ES contains a very powerful dose of “Icarrin” in a high standardized extract that is 40% in potency which is much stronger than the cheap 10% stuff that most guys never get any benefits from

Click here to get HCGenerate ES with potent Icariin right now

The whole formula is packed with proven ingredients, but today I will focus on discussing Icariin in particular, as this is the one ingredient for stiffness and desire that stands head and shoulders above many other herbs…

Horny Goat Weed – Epimedium or Horny Goat Weed was originally used in folk medicine as a natural way to heal the kidneys and it has been cultivated in Asia as a natural aphrodisiac and even today it has been used in best-selling supplements exactly the same way. The active ingredient in this plant is Icariin and this HCGenerate ES formula sports a 40% standardized extract and ensures its potency – some guys who complain about “not responding” to Horney Goat Weed may have been using a lower quality 10% extract that is so common. N2BM is only using the highest 40% potency extract of the Horney Goat Weed. Icariin works to improve sexual health because its presence causes the body to respond with nitric oxide; thereby, improving blood flow. When increased amounts of nitric oxide are circulating through the blood stream it causes red blood cells to expand and results in better blood flow to your veins. It also works to improve the sensitivity of sensory nerves as well as improving sperm count and quality.

Lets break down Icariin’s mode of action.

One of the big factors in why anabolic steroids work so well is that they improve nitrogen retention. Icariin can be counted on to provide the nitrogen retention benefits, without suppression and other problems associated with Steroids.

Why is Nitrogen retention important to you?

Nitrogen is a compound that can be found only in protein.  In competitive athletes Nitrogen levels can be measured and used as an accurate indicator to determine the body’s protein stores. The more nitrogen you have means you have a lot of protein available to help you in muscle-building and repair. Minimal amounts of nitrogen is indicative of low protein stores, and this would mean you are in a catabolic state.
Nitrogen retention is the amount of protein that is retained by the body. As for nitrogen balance, this is merely the balance between your protein intake or retention and whats used during your exercising.

Types of Nitrogen Balance.

Positive nitrogen retention is the ideal balance for every bodybuilder to achieve during and after workout. In positive nitrogen balance, the nitrogen retention levels are greater than that of loss so you have plenty to use to help with repair. Positive balance causes an anti-catabolic affect, and helps you recover much faster and build more muscle.

This is one reason why Steroids and HGH works so well, as it stimulates a positive nitrogen balance.

During Post Cycle Therapy and after, often nitrogen retention decreases repidly and your Nitrogen balance becomes negative, there is not enough protein available for muscle recovery, your pumps suffer, your erections suffer, and of course you look flat and less vascular… all because of this one simple factor: negative Nitrogen balance.

Icariin in HGW (horny goat weed) Can reverse negative nitrogen balance and restore it to its positive level. Preventing the undesired affect mention just previously. Not only does it prevent the side effects, but you get to enjoy all of the benefits of a good positive Nitrogen balance.

Icariin acts by inhibiting the Enzyme cGMP specific phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE-5) , This enzyme promotes the loss or degradation of cGMP (Cyclic guanosine monophosphate) , and because of that less blood flow reaches the penis, Icariin, the active compound in Epimedium, inhibits the activity of PDE-5 This is much the same as Viagra, only to a lesser extent, Icariin is very potent, without the nasty sides of Viagra.

The other thing to note is that Horney Goat Weed seems to have at least in some studies the ability to up regulate the genes involved with Nitric oxide production and the actions of adenosine/guanine monophosphate, This is something no other PDE-5 inhibitor has any affects on, so Icariin really shines where other fall short.

Epimendium and desire.

You can sometimes hear of people who take Viagra saying everything works but they have no desire or libido to go with the hardness… For these guys, Epimendium can help.

Remember I said it has an affect on Adenosine, well . Adenosine It is an inhibitory neurotransmitter, believed to play a role in promoting sleep and suppressing arousal, You feel tired, with no drive… This happens after an AAS cycle, That’s when Adenosine is at its highest, while Nitrogen retention is at its lowest,  Epimendium can actually suppress Adenosine through its direct actions on DNA as an antagonist to Adenosine, much like caffeine is. HGW can increase both the level and duration of action of acetylcholine.

I propose that through its positive affects on Acetylcholine the excitatory neurotransmitter can get to work at certain neuromuscular points, increasing the brain- penis connection and so improving libido.

Once again N2BM has produced an extraordinary product that can help you not only reach your goals, but FEEL GOOD reaching them, and help you recover your lost manhood after a heavy cycle.

In fact, using HCGenerate ES during cycle can alleviate many of the symptoms normally experienced of a sluggish or lowered libido, and promote much faster recovery in PCT.
