Tom Tadych's Nutrition Program
My overall approach to nutrition is to eat every 2-3 hours, keeping caloric intake between 300-400 calories per meal. Eating every couple of hours keeps my metabolism engaged while not taking-in too many calories at any given meal.
It was tough when I first started, but my body and mind adjusted to the change. Getting into a consistent routine made it easy to continue on a strict plan. Increasing water intake at each meal also helped with adjustments to eating fewer calories.
The biggest thing for me with nutrition is to know what I will be eating every meal, and when I will be eating. This really helps me stay on track. It's important for someone like me to have a strict written plan, because if I don't, I'll just eat anything and everything in sight.

Supplementation for me has to be like everything else, consistent and planned out. I use supplements to help fill in the gaps with nutrition elements I might not be getting with my diet. I take the brands that I do because I feel these are the particular products that have worked best for me.
I change up my pre-workout between NO-Xplode and Jack3d because I find them both to be effective, and changing it up helps mentally. I don't think my body gets a chance to get used to one particular pre-workout. I also cycle off pre-workouts for 2-to-4 week periods once or twice a year. I think when I cycle on and off and keep things mixed up, I feel as though I get better results from my pre-workout.
