Nutrition's link to PE
I’d like everybody to post what their diet typically consists of and how much they have gained. There is definitely a link between PE and nutrition, and hopefully with this thread people will become more aware of it’s importance and go on to make better gains. I’d also like to hear about people’s level of activity.
I hate to compare PE to bodybuilding, but as well all know, no bodybuilder gets anywhere without proper nutrition, and PE’ers should look at it in the same light.
Personally I made my biggest gains when on a healthy diet (consisting of oatmeal, tuna, eggs, rice etc. daily) and doing 30-60 minutes of cardiovascular activity each day. I kept this going for about 8 weeks and gained somewhere in the region of half an inch in length during this time, doing an hour PE workout 5 times a week.
Since Christmas I have gained a further 0.4” length doing very random PE routines, exercising 1-3 times a week for 20 minutes or so a time, and eating a high protein, moderate carbohydrate and fat diet (meat and vegetables). I also eat a lot of junk though these days.
I’m interested to hear about the big gainers (such as DLD and RB)’s nutrition and exercise level.
