My metabolism is pretty quick and I've recently come up in weight so my LPL (lipoprotein lipase) activation is increased, which speeds up my metabolism to keep me at a lower. I think it's still partly from marathon running. I may need to increase the caloric density of some of my foods to eventually get to 181.

Meal #1 (5am): Two bowls cheerios and special K (mixed together) w/ 8 egg whites, 2 scoops whey and a banana
Meal#2 (7am): 2 scoops XTEND (watermelon, the best flavor) w/ 2 special K bars
Meal#3 (9am): Peanut butter and jelly sandwich on whole wheat
Meal#4 (10am-Pre-Workout): 2 scoops Xtend and 4 rice cakes
Meal#5 (12:30pm-Post-Workout): 2 scoops Whey w/ banana, 3 glasses of gatorade, and 2 rice cakes
Meal #6 (2:00): Turkey sandwich on wheat, apple, yogurt
Meal #7 (4:30): Xtend and 2 rice cakes
Meal #8 (6:00): Huge salad (using the whole bag of lettuce) w/ 2-3 chicken breasts, 2-3 sirloin steaks, or 2-3 salmon filets. Homemade Dressing: 2tablespoons lemon juice, 1/3 cup olive oil, 2 teaspoons honey mustard, 1/8 table spoon ground cumin
Meal #9 (9:00): 3-5 Scoops of low fat frozen yogurt
Meal #10 (9:30): 2 scoops whey with banana

Now after this I wake up twice in the middle of the night to eat. Usually at 12:30 and 3:00. The first time is rice cakes and a lot of gatorade, the second time is Xtend w/ 5 grams of special K protein.

Once every week or two, I eat a pizza to get a little more fat intake. I eat a lot, but everything is really clean. It's a lot of food, but it's needed and I don't spend money on anything else so I don't have to sacrifice food intake. I love to eat, so getting food down isn't an issue, it's awesome.
That is the most awesome diet I have ever read. I would be obscenely obese. ha ha

As you guys know Mike and I trained together for the last several months. He is one of the greatest athletes I have ever seen. He also is impervious to pain.

Thanks for the comments Pres. We got enormously strong over the last few months.
Comp. Cycle Workout #7, 11-11-09: Dynamic Effort Squat
DE Squat 8X3:
160X3X2
180X3X4
200X3X2
Dynamic Work was solid. I didn't do any assistance work (as I often don't on DE squat days). I ask myself one question when I do anything in life: "Will doing this make me stronger?" If the answer is no then I don't do it, and that was the answer I came up with on assistance work today. Off tomorrow the 12th, then heavy bench Friday and heavy squat Saturday. Heavy days are what I live for.

Off today. 20min on the stationary bike, I still get the urge to run but fight it everyday, haven't run since last May. Heavy bench tomorrow and heavy squat Saturday, I plan on being enormously strong. I have eaten a ridiculous amount of food today and need to go eat more now.

Comp. Cycle Workout #8, 11-13-09: Heavy Bench
Bench (300 Max) 6,4,2+
245(82%)X6
260(87%)X4
280(92.5%)X2
Close Grip Bench
215X5
215X5
215X5
Incline Bench
225X4
235X4
Dips
PlateX15
PlateX17
Very nice work for the first heavy bench day on this cycle 280X2 was relatively easy. Weighed in at 172 today, 181 will come with strength. Also, 235X4 on incline at the end was pretty solid. This was just a warm-up however, tomorrow is the real deal---Heavy Squat.

Also, have a few videos today.
Squat (395-Max): 6,4,2+

Front Squat
225X4
245X4
255X4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_ufKPsWRqc

Nice work today, I am tired now. 365 for 3 was a PR. Still weighing in at 172, I will get to 181 and with 9 more pounds will come a lot more strength. Should be right around a 405 max now. Off tomorrow and heavy military press on Monday.

Judging by peoples reactions you know how to squat! I have a question i just started lifting and after squats my shoulder blades are quite sore from where the bar has been, is this normal or do i have the bar in the wrong posistion? Also you eat a tonne of food in one day you eat what i do in about two!
