rich froning jr's diet?

does anyone know the sort of diet rich froning follows? i understand his exact diet used to be on the progenex website but isnt there anymore.im not wanting it to try and eat like rich im just curious to what an athlete of that caliber and body composition eats on a daily basis.i understand he's very pro peanut butter (i saw dan bailey say he was copying rich and eating more and saying he could tell he was benefiting from it).

thanks

There's a video on the journal from just before the 2011 games where he had some peanut better and jam (or jelly as you probably call it?) mixed together in a tub in the fridge. He was taking a tablespoon of that each time he walked past. Didn't mention much about the rest of his food though.

Nutrition plays a much smaller part than everyone thinks imo. Experts rave on about how important it is so that people read their articles, buy their books or supplements.

Really? I was always under the impression nutrition was very important regarding optimum performance?

Re: rich froning jr's diet?

Nutrition is important, but what people think is important simply isn't. The idea that eating a hamburger will compromise performance is just stupid (for example).

If you are consuming enough total caloric intake and a reasonable mixture of protein, carbs, and fats then you are good to go beyond nuance things like a bodybuilder getting ready for a contest where body fat levels which can only be maintained for a brief period must be achieved.

Nutrient timing is also a good idea if you are an athlete seeking performance optimization.

Re: rich froning jr's diet?

There was a journal video around last years games where he was interviewed directly. He talked about the PB&J and the fact that he drinks chocolate milk post wod, but other than that I don't remember, just that he didn't follow any specific diet.

I don't understand why it's relevant. People wanting to eat like their favorite athlete tend to be missing the fact that what works for one person (especially a genetically gifted one like Rich Froning), may not work for you, it may be worth a try but it isn't likely to be perfect for you.
