Jay Cutler is the embodiment of discipline. Ever since the 4 x Mr. Olympia took up the sport of bodybuilding, he has followed a stringent routine without any room for slacking off. A major part of his winning routine was his high-protein, low-fat diet. While the bodybuilding legend’s winning streak seems like a lucrative aspect, following his diet is no easy feat.

Renowned YouTube Vlogger, Aseel Soueid, is famous for trying celebrity diets.  Recently, the vlogger attempted Cutler’s diet, shared his views, and gave practical tips to follow the bodybuilder’s eating habits.

Soueid starts off the video with Cutler’s words – “Chicken breasts in my steak, eggs, rice, eating four or five pounds of meat a day, ate every two hours”. To follow a legend’s diet, who ate for function rather than taste, Soueid suggested cooking the meat in bulk for a few days and refrigerating them all at once to save time.

Cutler’s diet was spread across six meals every two hours. The first meal didn’t perplex the vlogger, which comprised two large eggs and a scoop of whey protein powder. It was followed by Meal 2 comprising 12 oz, boneless, skinless chicken breast and two cups of cooked brown rice. The vlogger highlighted carb intake as a part of the pre-workout diet.

 

After an intense chest and arms workout, he went on to Meal 3, which is a post-workout drink. A protein shake of 3 scoops of whey protein powder and 60 oz of red Gatorade to, “get as many quick sugars into his body along with the protein as fast as possible post-workout to fuel his muscles.”
