What Pro Bodybuilders Eat for Breakfast | Breakfast & PWO w/ John Meadows


all right good morning everyone well
it’s good morning here and we are going to have breakfast my breakfast meal
today is also going to be my pre-workout meal and today we’re going to train legs this after we eat so this breakfast will be a little
larger than usual for me we want to start off with some eggs here so we’re
gonna get the skillet warmed up here are the eggs I use we typically go to a farm
and get our eggs but we we ran out so I went to the grocery store yesterday pick
these up we’re gonna cook with some coconut oil I like to cook on medium
heat that’s good so that was just the it was just a little bit to coat the
skillet now I’m just want to drop two eggs in here sometimes we whisk them up
and make them scrambled today I just want to drop them in here and as you can
see they’re cooking up fast so we’re gonna let that cook I’m going to go
ahead and throw some sourdough toast in the toaster the other thing I want to do
is throw some coffee in donut shop is what I have today coffee in here put my
special mug in here and I’m gonna put about 8 ounces of water okay and that’s
good to go looks like our eggs are almost done I am going to flip them over
one time that’s good now the toast is done so you
want to use my kerry gold pure Irish butter alright so I’m gonna throw the
eggs on here so I leave the yolks if you can see look how orange they are first of
all those are really good quality eggs from especially from a store they’re a
little tiny bit runny which I like and also for my eggs I like
to put pink Himalayan sea salt on my eggs so I’m going to be adding this as
well I do like to use a little bit of truvia and my coffee so I’ll put a
little truvia in there so that’s going to be the majority of the breakfast I’m
going to make one more thing because again I need some extra calories today
so this is like you’re probably wondering well that’s a pretty small
meal in of itself this is what I normally eat
I’m eating more for maintenance these days if I were trying to like if you if
we did this video 10 years ago that probably would have been six eggs or at
least four eggs I used to eat a lot of oatmeal but I don’t tend eat as much
oatmeal anymore it just tends to bloat me a little bit usually when I have this
breakfast here I feel awesome if I go with the bigger breakfast I tend to feel
kind of lethargic and sometimes I’ll even get sleepy and I’ll want to fall back to
sleep so this for me is really good again if you’re a young lad and you’re
wanting to pile on a lot of muscle you probably want to have some more eggs and
want to bump up the calories some but this is really good for me so we’re
going to add some extra calories today this is um a company club pride foods
they make this rice and grind just cream of rice if you followed me you know that
I’m a big believer and cream of rice particularly pre-workout so I’m going to
use a quarter cup in there a half a cup of water will make it kind of pasty
if you use a full cup of water it’s kind of running
so you just make it to how the you want the texture to be so if you put a whole
cup of water in there it’s gonna be pretty runny a half a cup it’s gonna be
like a paste so I’m gonna do about 3/4 of a cup all right so just pour it in
there i microwave it for 50 seconds all right so now I put in a little
peanut butter I would use almond butter but almond butter annoys me because the
texture it gets like a block and it doesn’t make sure well then I’m going to
stick in some Hershey’s sugar-free syrup does have some sugar alcohol in but a
little bit it’s not gonna kill you okay now I made mine a little bit runnier
in texture but you can make it as thick as you want usually I don’t know why
this is but usually if our to be dieting for a contest I prefer to be it really
thick like a paste I don’t know why but I just like it when it’s like chunks
it’s so thick so I don’t use much water when I’m
dieting but I’m not dieting so I like it runny this is called the
concoction bowl this is a very easy to digest pre-workout meal you can eat a
post-workout very very easy on the stomach so that’s it
so let’s chow down again this is a pretty big meal by my standards I hope
you’ll give this breakfast a shot I think you’ll enjoy it and as always make

    I add a half cup cream of rice with some whey protien and drink that on the way to the gym. It digest really well for me and that's my pre workout meal

    So he normally eats 300 calories for breakfast ( because he said he doesn't eat that much like in this video) and he is that big ? Let's say that he eats this much 6 times a day, that's 1,800. Even a sedentary woman would lose weight on a 1,800 calorie diet. I don't know…

    I think I just developed ADHD in looking at that kitchen. That backslash is next level, beyond current and projected design trends.. I am just at a visual loss. Brings out the blue in your eyes which is nice I suppose.

    24oz vanilla almond milk
    8oz cream of 🍚 rice
    3tbsp of raw 🍯 honey
    Big spoon of peanut butter
    1tbsp of vanilla MCT oil
    4oz of oats
    Blend in blender with crushed ice
    1450 calories boom 25g of Protein

    Alot quicker and easier to digest as he was explaining he gets bloated. I would ALREADY been at the gym . Time is money Dawg💪💪

  6. Darby O'Hara

    I love John and all his knowledge but this video is pretty worthless from the standpoint of usable knowledge for a bodybuilder looking for improve. There’s probably less than 20 grams of protein in that meal.

  7. Stuart Kelly

    Seems like a gentleman, articulate easy on the ear and knowledgeable, uses some good ingredients as well such as the Irish butter and those sunny looking eggs
