The body­builder con­sumed more than 4 thou­sand calo­ries per day, which helped build mus­cle.

Schwarzeneg­ger is a body­build­ing phe­nom­e­non who has con­quered the world of body­build­ing and set new stan­dards for the ide­al body. It’s no secret that in order to build mus­cle, you need to eat well and reg­u­lar­ly. Pro­tein is espe­cial­ly impor­tant for build­ing mus­cles. There­fore, young Schwarzeneg­ger based his diet on cer­tain prin­ci­ples that helped him achieve such results.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s diet principles

  • Eat plenty of protein: 1.5–2 grams per day per kilogram of weight.

  • Eat regularly: 5–6 times a day.

  • Time your carbohydrate intake. Make sure you eat carbohydrates within half an hour after your workout.

  • Drink protein shakes when you want to increase your daily protein intake.

In his youth, Schwarzeneg­ger con­sumed 4 thou­sand calo­ries and 250 grams of pro­tein per day, eat­ing every 3 hours. Arnold nev­er for­got about car­bo­hy­drates, pre­fer­ring com­plex ones (por­ridge, veg­eta­bles, herbs). But he always con­sid­ered pro­tein con­sump­tion to be the main fac­tor in weight gain. “We can argue end­less­ly about how much pro­tein the body actu­al­ly needs. “I’ve always lived by the rule that for every pound I weigh I need one gram of pro­tein,” Arnold admit­ted.
