Now I am going to be honest here with you. Just like in the book, I am not going to fluff around being all clever with grams this macro that.
Don’t we need everything bang on? Don’t I need to know how many calories and protein I need a day?
After all these years studying, yes studying nutrition, I realised being in shape with food is really easy.
It’s very simple.
Eat clean and train hard you will look like you do.
I say this all the time – but don’t you become what you do?
If you drink beer and eat crap and train sporadic, will you look awesome?
I have seen people transform 100% without fail by having their arse kicked in the gym and just not eating crap.
Let’s base this down – excuse the analogy. If I want my dog Daisy to be in shape, I will not give her anything but her own food, no treats and run her more. Boom – in weeks lean muscular dog.
Jim Wendler has it right when he said “train for strength, eat for performance and run hills, you will be in shape”.
If I want to gain size I eat more good food and train heavy and do light drill work.
If I want to lean out I eat lean and train harder and faster and do more drills.
Drills being Prowler – Hills – Weighted Vest Walks.
With no thought other than that I can gain and lose weight.
And so can you.
Simple and basic is best.
I wrote in my book, Old But Strong, that you just have to try eating a certain way and that along with the program you’re doing, will give you THE LOOK. So if I want to be leaner and more muscular I will train frigging hard and stimulate muscle, and also do some agility work.
I will then eat ‘leaner’ – so more vegetables, fruit, nuts and smaller more often meals. Eat light to be light and lean.
Want to be bigger – do the opposite!
Make your eating and training fit the goal. It’s that simple.
With the Conan Program I want to be lean – athletic, and muscular.
So my eating plan fits that.
I don’t count anything and eat just to my appetite. I also eat what I enjoy, clean natural food.
If I train real hard – say legs – I will eat more because my body will tell me too.

I love this eating plan and cook this up so many different ways.
Over time I will video my recipes.
Make it simple guys.
Just eat right – you know what to do.
