Special Forces Commandos Eat Like This To Build Muscle & Drop Fat

Eat clean, train dirty.

Your nutrition has a massive effect on your athletic performance and your aesthetics. Coming from a background of competitive gymnastics, soccer, bodybuilding and a Former Special Forces Soldier, I am well aware of how inadequate calories and nutrients can impair even the most conditioned athlete both physically and mentally.

To be a Special Forces Soldier you have to have the highest level of fitness and a tough mindset.

To be a Special Forces Soldier you have to have the highest level of fitness and a tough mindset. You are constantly exposed to sleep deprivation, food deprivation, and many physical challenges throughout the selection process, in which you learn a lot about your body and the way it survives under stress and the changes that will incur without enough sleep, food and recovery.

For me nutrition has always been about performance, with aesthetics as an added by-product. It’s good to use this to set your mind on food as fuel rather than just for fat loss or muscle gain.

Every body type is different so it’s not a one size fits all for nutrition, you need to work out what best suits your body type and training styles, and the best way to do this is to get a professional coach, customised training and nutrition plan.

I live off a diet of high fats and minimal carbs – yes I said it, minimal carbs – and I maintain a low body fat percentage and a stack of muscle. And here’s exactly how it’s done.
