What Bodybuilders Eat for Dinner | Grilling with Johnnie O Jackson

Johnnie O Jackson here IFBB Pro welcome to my kitchen and today I'll be showing you and Muscle & Strength what I eat for dinner this is a normal dinner meal for me and almost any Texan man it's our norm so we'll be eating steak and potatoes you know that's the heart of every meal or every man here in Texas more or less you know don't quote me on that but it works here at my house you know normally for a potato it takes forever at least 45 minutes or so in the oven to prepare a potato but for today and the purposes of me and my eating and not having a whole lot of time to prepare a meal this is what I use this little pocket right here this thing is a lifesaver easy to pack so when it's Meal Time I go buy me a potato take out this bam ready to go the only thing you do is need some h2o we first wet the potato nice and vigorously and we wet the bag somewhat if you don't use moisture you know within the pouch and the potato the potato are dry totally dry out and ruin you know your meal so you put the potato in the pouch it's a microwave so I'm gonna actually put it in for I say eight minutes should be good and off the goes I want to put in there for about eight minutes and off it goes this is so clean easy you know and you know if you're not done your steak eight minutes you know you can tend to your steak while that's going on you know and then when it's done by time is done your steak is pretty much done because I usually do three or four minutes on each side for a steak so it finishes out just about correctly all right got the steak on just let it go yeah I did actually I had to go 12 my the 8 minutes the first time I felt it up it was still pretty hard so I put it back in for 4 more minutes perfect definitely this is where our getting the main source of fats is through my meats that I eat and that's another reason why red meat is very important because the fat content in the meat also we need fats we need carbs we need protein you know we need that fine balance of everything to keep this machine going correctly it's simple easy and there you go my normal dinner meal sirloin steak and potatoes

Grocery Shopping with Pro Bodybuilders | Costco w/ Steve Kuclo

and I usually get to Costco probably once a week sometimes twice but it's time to stock up and you guys are coming with me so if I'm going to the store you are too I have one salmon meal a day right now and it's about eight ounces of cooked salmon I really like red meat I think you know the older I get you know the digestion and you know my GI stuff is important to maintain so what I like to do I notice you know as I've gotten older my protein amounts have come down a little bit versus like I remember eating 10 or 12 ounces of cooked meat for a meal now I eat anywhere from you know eight to ten ounces and I feel better like it's not as heavy so red meat sometimes can be a little bit heavy but that's why I eat it a little bit later in the day but I notice like when I'm carbing up for a show and stuff I'll have a few steak meals and just that red meat I always feel like it just really makes my body pop so just you know little things you don't know if that's if you could find the science behind it but the bodybuilding science is it works some of the vegetables I like celery have to check on the dates and make sure the dates are sometimes if you don't check it you buy something expires in two days and you get screwed and you screw yourself mushroom I lied I didn't need five pounds of mushrooms I only needed two avocado good healthy fats wife loves to have she loves avocados so we always pick them up at Costco I have been currently we're we've cut egg whites we've cut out cheat meals and we'll kind of use them as needed or refeed or high carb days that way everything is very monitored almost every couple days you know things are changing my diet changes based on progress and weight and stuff like that so when I do check ins with George is when I wait to hear back and then I see the email or the text or something of what I got to do and it's like like getting a report card like okay what does it say

you what I'm eating come along so today I'm gonna pick up one of this organic beef this is ninety three percent lean so seven percent fat it's good yeah so main protein sources is beef so ground beef organic chicken breast turkey and salmon all four I really like to use we're missing my coffee so this is I like this Starbucks iced coffee so I take this pre-workout with mega pre white so the primeval labs mega pre white is just pump so I really prefer to take the pump product and then I'll take about like a glass of this just for a little bit of caffeine but not too much yes also like you know sometimes I like egg whites for breakfast I don't always do them but it's it's a good clean protein source that you can get in and it's very easy digestible and it's not heavy on the stomach so yeah so here's some Greek yogurt I like it's like 15 grams of protein per per little carton it's easy to see you know it's kind of a nice treat like after the meal I'll always how usually have one maybe have like two of these a day you know just after a meal just get a little bit of extra I like fruit flavors so a big staple would be would be this for sure cheese this is Monterey Jack I have about 1 pound with each meal so could you imagine yeah so basically for for seasonings what I like is Himalayan sea salt it's good for minerals I actually put it on every meal so I know a lot of people will say you know too much salt is bad I put lots of salt on my meals and it actually it flushes but you got to make sure you drink a lot of water if you're gonna have a lot of a high sodium so you got to make sure you're doing both oh I love this is one of my favorites peach tea peach tea diet Snapple there's five calories per 12 ounces so it's really good I love it have you ever had squirt before it's like grapefruit pop but they have diet version this is 140 calories per thing you can't be having no yes they have it found it yeah diet squirt no it's really good man it's really good yeah I love it yeah so like I've done a prep where I completely cut diet pop and I've done a prep where I've used diet pop or drank diet pop lots and you know I'm not crazy I'm not gonna drink like six a day but like if I have two it's no big deal it's not doing anything you know it's fine if something that simple can like get you through you know to the next meal take advantage of it you know it's not gonna kill you just going to see if these chex are they flavored or are they not these are just if there's no flavor to these so I'm gonna grab honey nut cheerios let me just stock back up cereal could be my last meal of the day it could be the first meal of the day I don't have a specific like carb that I use for each meal I just know like how much carbs I need out of each meal so when I'm like okay I feel like cereal I'll have the cereal as the carb and I'll have beef as the as the protein or I'll have chicken and I'll have pasta and I'll have you know I just always switch it up make sure I'm enjoying my meals and yeah if you don't enjoy them you're not gonna get them in so make sure you know you're making the food taste good as well spend a little more time in the kitchen and it's gonna pay off later so a great tip for that I could give you is picking up these mios or the Dasani drops I have some at home in Canada they're called tang and it's really really good I'm gonna take a shot in the dark in one of these I haven't tried them before but I really like pink lemonade so with this basically I'll keep this beside my sink at home with a glass fill up the water put two squirts of this in smash it down I'll do that like eight times a day anytime I think about it and I'm getting my water in so make sure you stay hydrated well big staple in my offseason is has been pasta it's an easy way to get in like my hundred and twenty hundred and forty grams of carbs you get my tomato sauce tomato and basil it's my favorite one use that and I have I like different types of pasta I did penne for a while and now I'm gonna get the thin spaghetti it also cooks faster so it's called spaghetti teeny I believe sometimes I've it's been called something different but that's the really small one yeah I think it's this one it's I think Stan was here before me thin spaghetti so there's thin spaghetti oh this is it angel hair angel hair so yeah like I said there's different names like I it's four for $5 so I'll get four of these all right so here here we have the berry blast this is a fruit juice could easily afterwards eating a meal you know you might struggle to get the meal in or whatever like 100 3 cups of rice and 8 ounces of Turkey and then once you've eaten that it's very easy you know to have a banana or have an apple a Honey Crisp apple is my favorite right now and then on top of that to get even more food in you can have some juice so here you're gonna get an additional 30 carbs if you're if you're feeling hungry you can even use 16 ounces which is still not that much you can easily drink your your carbs to get to that 200 carb mark so last but not least we're gonna pick up some fruit I'm gonna get a couple bananas and I'm gonna get a couple of my favorite apples which is the Honey Crisp apples so these ones I love these ones they're like they're kind of sweet but they're they're they're crispy like Honey Crisp it's not a good one gotta feel to make sure there's no soft spots nothing worse than a bad apple we're gonna get some blackberries blackberries you put in some oats or you can put in your cream of rice it's really good as well yeah these ones looking not too bad I'm gonna grab like four of them go for some grapes here I love grapes alrighty guys so that's Regan Grimes checking out this is my shopping
