Nutritional Corrections & Recommendations

  1. Increase daily caloric intake. Begin increasing the amount of food you eat on a daily basis by 200-300 calories a day. Pay attention to your weight and body image. If you notice a rapid weight gain, cut the increase to 100-200 calories. If there is no weight gain, increase caloric intake by another 100-200 calorie a day, totaling at about extra 400-500 calories a day.
  2. Increase the frequency of the water consumption. Instead of drinking more water in total, make the emphasis on drinking it more frequent with little gulps. Drink the clear water, consistently and frequently throughout the day. Reduce water consumption 1-2 hours before bed.
  3. Consume protein from clean animal sources. The list below is organised in order from most nutritiously rich foods to least:
    1. Raw pork belly fat (30 grams a day)
    2. Fatty fish
    3. Beef
    4. Turkey
