Do you mind me asking how many calories you consume on an average day (if you track them)?

Iím pretty instinctive and I gauge roughly itís not obsessive other than foods I eat ,I have added some body weight just to see how far before I lose some leanness I guess after trying since 1987 not much will change unless I give up.


Meal 1 egg whites I use pour out version with peppers every day and I add shredded mozzarella cheese then oatmeal flax version cup blue berries and sometimes I add cereal protein go lean


Snack pistachios lately before lunch. I usually have a granola bar too and piece fruit or grapes for example

Meal 2 chicken usually cup rice

Protein bar few hrs later

Meal 3 dinner before gym chicken and rice again usually

Train hr later I train at night 730 or 8 pm

Then after training shake I use the organic pea protein better on my stomach measure large scoop overflow it and add blueberries frozen and or frozen strawberries and banana and add natural peanut butter sometimes

After that I sometimes eat some organicflax chips from Trader Joeís with salsa not good to eat before bed but Iím used to it

Depends week or day we get bagels at work sometimes I grab a whole wheat and put pb butter.

I take multi and glucosamine and arginine tabs before good pump it gives

I eat red meat once week usually in place of other chicken meal

I take it, you allow for variables? I couldn't eat the same thing each day with the exception of one red meat day. Tonight, I will make Spanish rice using a package mix, lean ground beef, onion, mild green chili peppers, a can of chopped, fire roasted tomatoes, some water or beef stock and maybe sliced black olives. This makes plenty for two big or three modest sized meals.

Today, I work delts. So far they are holding up well, but I'm careful about form and the amount of resistance I use.

I'm glad to see you're still at it, Brother.

I know you went through some tough times... now a global pandemic.
That's a true display of DETERMINATION, PASSION, DISCIPLINE.

So, which competition are you thinking about entering? I'm being serious. Contests are being postponed until summer and fall because of COVID-19. This gives you time to put the finishing touches on your physique.

You really know how to critique your work. Isn't that often a sign of success? What did you think you looked like? Chopped liver? Your limbs, arms and legs are among of your strong points.

I may have said this before, but you are built very similar to my older brother.  Very much along the lines of Zane whom he and I admire very much.  You look great!

I got to meet Zane when he allowed me to come by his home many years ago to pick up some autographed books for my older brother.  Of course I didn't go inside their home, but all the same it was great to meet him and get the books for my brother. 

Mr. Zane is a gentleman, believe me and that you and my brother both think the same of him and have similar physiques is just so cool!  I think he still has the poster of Frank and Christine from the late 70s at his home.  I did not have the pleasure of meeting his wife but she was and I have no doubts remains, beautiful.

Train hard, brother!
