The cham­pi­on shared his menu from the times when he held the title of the world’s top body­builder.

A very impor­tant part of build­ing a body is nutri­tion. How do those who ascend to the win­ner’s podi­um eat? This is what our arti­cle is ded­i­cat­ed to.

Legend and idol

Ron­nie Cole­man is one of the great­est body­builders of all time, hav­ing won the cov­et­ed Mr. Olympia title for eight years in a row, best­ing even Arnold Schwarzeneg­ger him­self.

How­ev­er, the mod­est hero always con­sid­ered his vic­to­ries to be the mer­it of the entire team that sur­round­ed him.

“I tell peo­ple all the time that the rea­son I was suc­cess­ful in body­build­ing was because I was sur­round­ed by great train­ers and nutri­tion­ists,” Cole­man said. “I think it was my desire to learn that helped me.”

Remember the menu

In a new video on his chan­nel, Ron­nie talks about how he ate when prepar­ing for pro­fes­sion­al body­build­ing com­pe­ti­tions, includ­ing Mr. Olympia.

Start your day with half a cup of cere­al and two cups of egg whites. Cole­man explains that when prepar­ing for com­pe­ti­tions, the egg whites are replaced by a pro­tein shake, but oth­er­wise, “every meal is pret­ty much the same.”

Then comes chick­en and baked pota­toes or rice and beans: in oth­er words, jock sta­ples. The video also shows Cole­man con­sum­ing large amounts of sports nutri­tion sup­ple­ments.

“The main ones, in my opin­ion, are mul­ti­vi­t­a­mins, amino acids (BCAAs) and whey pro­tein iso­late. Iso­late has few­er calo­ries and is eas­i­er to digest. Of course, there are oth­ers, but these, in my opin­ion, are an absolute “must have”. Reg­u­lar food is also impor­tant; you can­not rely on sup­ple­ments alone. You have to pay seri­ous atten­tion to both.”
