Jamie Alderton Fitness 360: Nutrition

Now that his military career is complete, Jamie is fighting through the ranks of physique athletics. Follow his nutrition plan and challenge your future.

When you eat, your body turns food into energy. Each individual nutrient is taken into account. Proteins are separated and taken to task. Carbohydrates and fats are pushed into use, or stored for energy down the line. Jamie Alderton eats with the knowledge that the right nutrients are his greatest allies.

Jamie's Nutritional Philosophy

"I don't like to use the word diet; eating well is a lifestyle choice. I don't restrict the foods I enjoy for long periods of time. If I have a competition, I change my diet to some degree—I restrict my carbs and control everything I eat.

"Bodybuilding.com has helped me a lot. I've looked at different people's diets. I've looked at different carb sources, different protein sources, and different supplement plans, and I've tested them out. I've given these plans 2-3 weeks to see if they work. If one does, I use it; if not, I discard it.

"I tend to have breakfast, a mid-morning snack, lunch, mid-afternoon snack, pre-workout snack, post-workout meal, dinner, and something before I go to bed. When I am not dieting for a competition, I'm a big fan of pizza, KFC, and Burger King. I believe that if you maintain a healthy lifestyle and you eat clean throughout the week, you shouldn't worry about the occasional burger."
