  1. how do ppl afford to eat like them. Like I know dude gets paid now etc. But say tomorrow i wanted to be like them n do this full time. Id quit my job source of my income and have to afford to eat like this? lol

  2. I think people tend to forget that as hard as they compete and train they have to eat equally hard. Nothing about what they do is natural. And because they need nutrient dense foods they can't fill in with a lot of cheating calories like ice cream. I think the difficulty of passing 12,000 calories every single day through your system is underrated. When I was training hard I used to eat 1/2 that amount of calories and it was a huge amount of food every day.
