Huy Fong Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce February 16, 2011
Sauces. I highly recommend starting out with a bottle of soy sauce. Don’t only have it with Asian-inspired dishes; use it instead of salt whenever you crave a more intense, savory...
OXO Good Grips Pepper Grinder February 16, 2011
Pepper. If you don’t own a pepper grinder, a disposable bottle of peppercorns from the supermarket will suffice. However, there truly is no substitute for the fragrance of freshly...
Maldon Sea Salt February 16, 2011
Salt. I prefer salt flakes (such as Maldon) that have a nice large flake structure, making them perfect for crushing over meals at the last minute. Iodized salt is great for people...
Dave’s Gourmet Six Pure Chiles Shaker February 16, 2011
It’s hard to beat the wonderful warming feeling you get from a bit of chili. While I like it hot, it’s more about feeling the warmth and still being able to taste what you’re...
McCormick Grill Mates Montreal Steak February 16, 2011
Moreover, it doesn’t take much to jump from repetitive to inventive. In my case, even as a grass-fed beef aficionado, I grew weary of flank with nothing more than salt and pepper....
Runa Guayusa Tea January 28, 2011
Assorted Guayusa tea. I'm actually very interested in this stuff as it's similar to Yerba Mate in many cases, but it has slightly higher caffeine content.
Matcha Green Tea Powder January 20, 2011
Commenter: I’ve found that brewing green tea is pretty impractical, so for the past several months I’ve been putting green tea powder in a gallon of water and freezing overnight....
EAS Myoplex Lite Nutrition Shake December 28, 2010
Commenter: I have posted a few times asking what type of protein shake your father used for breakfast. Please let me know. Tim: Myoplex Lite.
Flax Seed Oil December 15, 2010
Thanks to the continuous glucose monitoring, I also had food logs to use. Some of the initial findings [include]: One or two tablespoons of flaxseed oil (120 - 240 calories) can be used in combination with the celery-and-almond-butter to further increase cell repair during sleep and thus decrease fatigue.
Chia Seeds December 15, 2010
I've found the following shake to produce incredible effects when mixed with a hand blender and consumed at both 4:00pm and before bed. It also helped me achieve that 100+ pound strength gains as detailed in 'Effortless Superhuman'. [Ingredients include:] 3 tbsp chia seeds.
Balance Bar December 15, 2010
Neil's Food Schedule [including] 11:00am - Protein bar (Balance Bar)... 3:00pm - Protein bar... 7:00pm - Protein bar. The choice is yours: eat big or eat often. Fat gain will be slightly more with the former, and inconvenience will be much greater with the latter.
Isopure December 15, 2010
Some athletes eat 10 times per day to break up calorific load and avoid excessive fat gain. I eat four main meals per day for both fat-loss and muscular gain [including] 7:30pm - Training, if scheduled (I sip low-fat protein just before and throughout. Neil used Isopure).
Yerba Mate Lemon Ice Tea December 15, 2010
Bingeing is a rare circumstance where I want the food (or some of it) to pass through my gastrointestinal tract so quickly that its constituent parts aren't absorbed well. I accomplish this primarily through caffeine and yerba mate... I consume 16 ounces of cooled yerba mate at the most crap-laden meals.
Lemon Kombucha Wonder Drink December 15, 2010
Consume citric juices, whether lime juice squeezed into water, lemon juice on food, or a beverage like the citrus kombucha I had.
Schizandra Berry Tea December 15, 2010
As if on cue, both of us ordered Schizandra berry tea. The description? 2000 years ago Shen Nong first identified this potent elixir as an 'adaptogenic tonic' (i.e., it gives you whatever you need: energy, relaxation, beauty, sexual prowess). Things were off to a good start.
Almond Butter December 15, 2010
If you have trouble sleeping due to hunger, you're not eating enough. In these cases, consume a bit of protein prior to bed, which can be as simple as 1-2 tablespoonds of almond butter (ideal).
Macadamia Nut Oil December 15, 2010
Macadamia oil is the new and improved olive oil. Since several high-level bodybuilding coaches introduced me to this new kid on the block, I've been hooked. The fat in macadamia oil is 80% monounsaturated, the highest percentage among cooking oils.
Grapeseed Oil December 15, 2010
