Throughout his great career, Lou Ferrigno has been willing to change his diet to meet specific fitness goals. So – Lou doesn’t always eat six meals! But when he does, here’s a typical breakdown.
The good news is that this isn’t some kind of Weirdo Diet a normal person can’t afford and wouldn’t want to eat. Would Lou do that to you? This is real, wholesome, delicious food and a whole of of it!
Starting With A Blast
Lou’s first meal consists of four or five egg-whites, whole-grain toast, side of fruit.
Those eggs start Lou off with a good blast of protein. Four or five? That’s a commitment.
A Couple Or Three Hours Later…
Lou’s second meal consists of two slices of meat, three oz. of raw nuts and a side of toast (always whole-grain).
There’s no dispute that the body digests animal protein better than any other sort. Here, the nuts are crushed fine and spread atop the steaks before grilling.
Are You Keeping Up?
About when most people are eating their second meal. Lou is eating his third. A tuna salad, a yogurt with fruit.
Here’s that tuna salad. Want some? Well, tough.
It’s Lou’s. Get your own tuna salad! But wait, there’s more…
How About More Protein?
When a lot of other folks are grabbing a Snicker’s to sugar-boost them through the late afternoon, Lou has meal number four. Just a protein shake with fruit.
It’s almost just a snack!
Bet Lou gets to five o’clock better than you did with that Snicker’s bar.
Now We’re Talking
Lou’s fifth meal is the All-American, Make-Room-For-Daddy classic: Steak and a baked potato with a vegetable family on the side.
Don’t be a jerk. Eat your broccoli.
Hanging With Stan Lee
Meal number six consists of a protein shake – low carbohydrates – or alternately, three oz. of cheese and sunflower seeds.
Lou’s last tip. Don’t Hulk Out if you’re out among friends and they serve you, say, a cupcake. Be a good guest, and Enjoy!
Just imagine there’s protein in that cupcake!
