Dinnertime!

tuna Dinnertime!Hey ProSource fans,

Keep all those recipes coming in and help all of us reach our goals for daily eating. The next meal we’ll address is the 5th meal. For many of us, this is the dinner time meal and having your regular chicken/beef/tuna with your complex carbs such as brown rice, baked potato, and greens is ideal. This meal is very important in that it’s one of the last “food” meals we’ll have for the day, and we have to make this clean as possible. This is the time we all tend to wind down and for many this is the time we have to be wary of. We have to watch because we can put on unwanted weight. The night time is one of the worst time for many, including myself, so being strict is the name of the game.

Training a Future UFC Champion

tim boetsch 300x187 Training a Future UFC ChampionI hope everyone tuned into Spike TV to see my client Tim “The Barbarian” Boetsch manhandle Kendall “Da Sypder” Grove!  This was a big win for The Barbarian with his Middleweight Debut. The fans were impressed with Tim’s new figure at 185lbs (including  UFC President Dana White).  We worked incredibly hard implementing different nutrition and supplementation to get The Barbarian to a powerhouse at middleweight.  We used a ton of ProSource supplements to get the Barbarian to look the way he did.  We always want to thank all of our fans for the support and will promise to keep working hard to make a real run at the title.  Many of my new ProSource followers were asking how I got acquainted with UFC fighter Tim “The Barbarian” Boetsch.  How do a bodybuilder and UFC fighter train together and be beneficial for one another with their methodologies and styles with training/dieting?  This blog entry is going to be dedicated to the dynamic synergy which makes Tim and I a nasty and unique force.

4th Meal Tips and Advice

cados 4th Meal Tips and AdviceHey ProSource Fans,

So we have talked about breakfast, the 2nd meal, and lunch. Let me mention the 4th meal, in which normally I use NytroWhey Ultra. Along with that I will either have a half cup of oats and/or a tablespoon of peanut butter. Now, the 2nd meal and the 4th meal are very important (which every meal is), but they are also the ones that help you intake protein while not giving you much time elapsed without eating. The one main purpose of eating every two to three hours is keeping your muscles from breaking down.

Now the meals you can have are just about anything, but remember its supposed to be a snack-like meal where you can take in 20-30 grams of protein. Don’t be afraid to eat some complex carbs, you can absolutely eat fruits and veggies but make sure you are getting protein in the meals you are eating. This can be used for anyone who is looking to put size on or even lean up.

Here are some lunch ideas to give you some variety:

If you are Cutting, try this:
Tuna with some greens

Or check out this recipe for YOGURT POPS

If you are Maintaining, try this:
Chicken, brown rice and an apple

Or check out this recipe for GUILTLESS GUAC

If you are Bulking, try this snack:
NytroWhey, oat meal and 1 tbsp peanut butter

Or check out this recipe for BANANA MAPLE PROTEIN WRAPS

Ryan’s Nutrition and Dieting 101

I think one of the most challenging things to do is understand nutrition and dieting.  There is so much information relative to nutrition floating around out there and it always seems to frustrate every one of us.  I would be a liar if I said I know everything there is to know about this topic. Nutrition is something I am always fascinated to learn more about and is what keeps me intuitively eager as a professional to learn more and more.  I am mystified each time I compete because I learn something new every show I prep for.  Every client I work with that is interested in nutrition consulting also makes me learn something new each time as well.  As I said before, every one of us is so different and figuring out the best plan that suites each of us is the challenge of it all.  I do think that there is a perfect diet and lifestyle for everyone of us out there that we can look our best and also enjoy life too.
