I'm a Brazilian Pro Wrestler. This is How I Train to Improve My In-Ring Performance
Biggest challenge is to change all my routine. I didn’t believe I could handle it. For example, I love fast food and I thought I couldn’t stay away of a hamburger for a long time and… I did it. It’s hard in the beginning, but it’s a relief when you get.

How I Build Muscle Mass Despite Having a Fast Metabolism
I will not cheat, but I like to eat fast food. I have no major problems with this. I will change something else in my meals later.

How I Started Competing in Natural Figure Bodybuilding in My Late 40s
I don’t have a sweet tooth and never eat cakes, donuts, sugary pastries, sweet foods, desserts, etc or any form of junk/fast food. I never have cravings for these even when getting ready for competition.

I Own a Gym. This Is How I Combine My Own Training with Training Clients
I believe that I need to assist people in these other areas to “win” them back to a healthier life by beating the fast food chains and cable TV networks that prevent people from choosing physical activity and healthy eating.

How I Went from Skinny and Small to Strong and Bulky
On cut season, I just lower my carb and sugar intake, while on bulking season I literally consume as much as I possibly can. I usually have a big cheat day during the weekend or on Fridays. On a cheat day I usually eat some sort of fast food, depending on how I feel.

How I Have Appeared on 31 Fitness Magazine Covers and in over 300 Magazines
I don’t eat fast food or candy.
Terence Bradley
Terence Bradley (male, 21)
How I Learned the Importance of Discipline for Getting Better and Stronger
I try to meet a protein goal depending on my body weight at the time. I still eat fast food occasionally, along with other things, but I just mix those meals in throughout the day. I know as I get older I won’t be able to be as lax with my diet, but as far as right now, I eat basically whatever I want.
Daz Hallett
Daz Hallett (male, 49)
How I Won Mr. Universe, Got Surgery and Then Won Mr. Universe Again
I will eat the occasional fast food but only if it’s the only option because I’m not a big fan of them anyway. I crave more things like bread, home cooked chips, my wife’s lasagna.

How I Train, Eat and Prepare to Be the First Male Vegan Athlete on the Mr. Olympia Stage
I always make sure to have meals cooked and ready to go for a few days at a time, that way I’m not reaching for fast food or junk food.

Eric Leto (male, 33)
How I Became a Vegan WBFF Pro Fitness Model and European Vice Champion
After years of dieting, I don’t feel any craving anymore for sweets or fast food, it just doesn’t resonate with me anymore. I think the last time I drank alcohol was like three years ago, not a big fan of it and especially knowing what it does to your body and your muscles. Coffee is consumed rarely and tea on a everyday basis.
Bre Hess
Bre Hess (female, 28)
How I Lost 185 Lbs, Became a Personal Trainer and Fitness Model
I cannot say that I do meal prep because I don’t, I eat what they consider one ingredient foods. I eat no fast food whatsoever.
Easton Elliott
Easton Elliott (male, 25)
How I Stopped Smoking 35 Cigarettes a Day, Became a Personal Trainer and Got Really Fit
I don’t count calories anymore but have a rough idea. I’m also much more careful of eating out at fast food restaurants (but I still do!). If I go out with friends or there’s a social event, I don’t usually hold back.
