- Meat (Beef, Chicken Breast etc…) – Grass fed if possible
- Cottage Cheese
- Whey Protein I personally prefer to chew my protein, but do drink it post-workout (3 times per week)
- Brown Rice
- Black beans – Protein, heart-healthy fiber, antioxidants.
- Sweet Potato
- Barley – Low GI, high-protein, liver cleanser.
- Wheat (bread, pasta, pitta)
Don’t be afraid of carbs, they are important for fat loss, muscle development, proper brain and body functioning. Eat the majority of your carbs post-workout.
When you are fasting try a cleanse, it can really help you get the most from the process.

Broccoli is very powerful anti-estrogenic and anti-cancer food.

I only eat:
I swap them every day, with my cottage cheese.

- Avocados – estrogen reducing food, very healthy fats. (half avocado on non-training days max)
- Nuts – estrogen reducing food, very high in calories. Almonds are my top pick. (10 nuts per day max)
- Nut butters – peanut butter, almond butter (consume in low quantities when losing weight)
- Dark chocolate – 70% or more Cocoa
