On this episode of Games to Gains, both James Grage and Kerby Fortner take you through a full day of meals. While Kerby is trying to bulk up, James is simply maintaining his physique, using carb cycling to stay lean. Notice the differences in their diets:

James:

  • Coffee – On a low carb day, James will add unsweetened almond or coconut milk. On a high carb day, James will add fat-free milk and Stevia.
  • Two scoops of ISO HD™ protein
  • Scrambled eggs (Egg Whites & Egg Beaters)
  • Oatmeal with blueberries
  • Tuna salad
  • 1 scoop ISO HD™ protein
  • Boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • Zucchini noodles with low-sodium, low-sugar tomato sauce

Kerby:

  • 5 scoops of Bulk Muscle™ protein
  • 1 cup Cream of Wheat
  • 4 eggs
  • Protein bar
  • 100g green beans
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 5 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 2 scoops Best Protein™
  • 1 banana
  • 2 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 100g green beans
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 4 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 2 scoops Bulk Muscle™
  • 100g green beans
  • 4 oz. chicken breast
  • ½ cup frozen berries
  • 2 scoops Whey HD™ protein
  • 1 Tbsp peanut butter
  • ½ cup fat-free milk

Kerby is obviously eating a lot more calories than James, which means he’s eating about nine meals per day, including protein shakes. James, on the other hand, is eating five meals. Watch the full video above to see everything that goes into the preparation, when they eat each meal and the flavors of protein they each prefer.

Mike T, who’s trying to lose weight, also participates, and learns a valuable lesson from James: not all vegetables are created equal! Although corn, for example, is technically a vegetable, it is very high in sugar. In fact, it’s what farmers use to fatten up their cows, chickens and pigs! So if you’re trying to lose weight, stick to fibrous vegetables like broccoli, asparagus and Brussels sprouts.
