Clean Whole Food Diet.
I am still currently on no supplements. So it's all about eating smart. My diet is almost completely clean, with the odd cheat day or two in the month. My biggest sources of protein consist largely of fish, mainly shellfish. I also eat a lot of salmon raw (so the creatine levels are not lost through cooking). Steamed chicken, eggs and milk and nuts. Since taking up powerlifting I consume a lot more low glycemic carbs, such as brown rice, sweet potatoes, oats, apples, graperuits, boiled pasta.

"Nobody wants to die! So why do people let themselves go? Why kill yourself off?"
The above quote is by Charles Bronson from his book "Solitary Fitness". For those not in the know, he's a UK prisoner renowned for his amazing strength. He's also spent 30 years in the solitary confinement, with no access to a gym or any weights, no special dietary plan or supplements. Yet he holds countless prison fitness and strongman records. On average he will push out 5,000 to 6,000 pressups, 6 days a week every week and he's pushing 60. If he can do find the fire, with no equipment, no-one to push him, no specialised diet, why can't I? Why can't you? You may argue he has all the time in the world to burn, but how much time can you waste just sat slouched on the couch in front of the TV of an evening? Why not push some floor and watch the same time? You don't have the money for a gym membership or to buy some iron, then get that dining room chair, place your hands underneath your shoulders and do some dips. Or hold it out in front of you by the bottom of the front legs and lower slowly to just above your feet, hold and count to 10, back up and repeat and seriously strengthen those arms and shoulders. Unless you have some serious medical condition that out and out prevents you from exercising (and just look at some of those wonderful guys and girls in the paralympics), then what's the excuse?
