  • Hi! I just wanted to know how many calories I should be consuming if I just started bodybuilding? I am 18 years old and weigh 220 lbs… Should I lose the fat first and then begin bodybuilding or can I start now?

  • Not only I lost fat and gained muscle, but I feel more energized and productive throughout the day. My sleep has also improved drastically. Website called Next Level Diet really changed my life for the better.

  • i don’t understand why low carb meals are considered a good thing. for me, protein and fat are the easiest macros to consume. i really have to go out of my way to get enough healthy carbs.

  • Heify checkin’ himself out at the end. Priceless. Dude looks like he’s been crushing it in the gym, though. He deserves to admire himself a bit.

  • I’m a chef by trade I love your ideas for meal prep and your knowledge for training… But watching you cook and your skills in that regard.. is painful hahaha

  • Why nobody eat vegetables? Need a lot of vegetables,that food is 100% acidic now se need to nalance that acid with alkaline foods like vegetables.

  • Thanks for posting the protein macros you have no idea how much I’ve noticed girls don’t get enough protein in their diet including me. Love your videos don’t ever stop posting the macros please they help so much.

  • I like to do two whole eggs and 4 egg whites you still get the nutrients and vitamins from the yolk and plenty of protein in whites try it out

  • Wow man!!!! I used to love & respect only Gurumann so far in this format..
    I’ve been watching your videos for quite a while now and I must admit you’re amazing too bro..
    So now I recommend Gurumann and Abhinav Mahajan ����

  • just a comment, he never said “Fancy Breakfast” if you are looking for that then check Ramsay, if you want easy Protein meal then do this.

  • Fave has to 1000% be the tuna patty, so easy and quick whilst still amazing! Would recommend to anyone who wants to change up their diet and still get in those macroes! Thanks Michael��

  • Hi Family! Hope you liked the Video. Let me know what you want to see for Nutrition next?

    Make sure to follow on Intsa at Username abhinavfitness

  • just started making your protein pancakes, cinnamon buns, and going to try the quick made brownies, along with boneless wings……currently in show prep and with 10 hour work days doing phyical labor any way i can stick to as close to my program and adding minor cheats has been huge for


  • you did one thing wrong first you need to brown the ham and the oats for like 4-5 mins then add the egg after the egg is finishing add in the cheese to end it. boom you will see and taste the difference

  • Thx dude. Quick question or suggestion I guess…..probably better to use Brown rice than white rice? Keep the videos coming dude….thx again…..

  • Please change the “let’s do itttttt” yelling part of the intro I get like chills of like cringe every single time. Good videos though, wish Canada had fat free cheese.

  • My friend laughed when I told them I was going to lose fat with just implementing Custokebon Secrets, but after I showed them amazing effects after I used it they’re begging me to share with them about it. Of course I won’t let them know the detail about this diet plan, haha

    hope its helpful

  • Bhai aapki 4-5 favourite recipe mai jyada calories nahi mil raha usse better peanut butter banana sandwich hai around 500+ cals mil raha hai. Any suggestions why you prefer smoothie over it?

  • NextLevelDiet website makes it simple. Select food you like and they give you PERSONALIZED meal plan with tips, TRAINING PLAN and healthy recipes.

  • Thank you for sharing this, Marcus!
    I appreciate your encouragement and ideas, and look forward to renewing my efforts to engage my readers.

  • When you crack eggs bro don’t crack them on the side of the pan. When you did it shot shells all in your eggs. Crack them on a flat surface so it cracks even and doesn’t explode shells everywhere lol

  • Lol i dont usually look up protein anything until recently, i don’t like just any video either, and this is my first video watching from this guy, however he seems really chill and energetic, so theres my like dude. Always smiling. Love it.����

  • Those are all awesome man! I have tried a few of them.. One of my favorites that wasn’t mentioned was the egg white pizza you made years ago!

  • If you cook the eggs like a traditional scrambled does it effect the protein gain of the eggs also what is the best way to get protein from the eggs?

  • What is the best way to lost tons of weight? I read plenty of good reviews on the net about how exactly Custokebon Secrets will help you lost lots of fat. Has anyone tried using this popular weight loss method?

  • Compared to Muesli.. Granola has more amount of proteins per serving about 9.3 grams..and muesli has only 6.6 grams per serving.. Which one is best bro?

  • It’s still shock me just how lots of people don’t know about Custokebon Secrets (look on google search engine) even though a lot of people lost lots of weight with it. Thanks to my personal pal who told me about this. I’ve lost crazy amounts of weight.

  • I have started going to gym a month ago.. I have watched many of the videos but you are fabulous.. You give perfectl knowledge about everything.. Thanks for this this is really helpfull..

  • Is Custokebon Secrets effective to lost a ton of weight? We have learn numerous good stuff about this popular lose weight secrets.

  • Aye so I’ve ordered some gymshark clothing and does anyone else have a issue with the shirts being too long? I wear a size small, 5’9 and it fits great it’s just the shirts go down to my mid thigh almost. Do they shrink any in the wash???

  • That so called “cheese” is not even real cheese. If you’re going to have a grilled cheese sandwich, you might aswell use the real thing.

    I’ve never seen fat free “real” cheese slices. Shredded, yes. But never slices.

  • What you said at 1:00 is wrong. Eating carbs over a long period of time won’t make you fat, eating in a calorie surplus over time will, even if those calories are coming from fats. This is probably why people new to the gym are afraid of carbs because people say it’ll make them fat….

  • As a Mexican I was highly disappointed with the wrapping skills on the burrito, bro and to top it off a tooth pick? ���� therefore I must UNSUBSCRIBE!!!

    Just kidding love your videos Zac. One of my favorites on the platform.

  • This is just how to put these extra things on your scrambled eggs. That’s no bullshit what the title is and exactly what I was expecting. I love it man. I want you to know I appreciate the video.:D make more

  • Shit, i just realized this and the deep dish pizza are the ones protein chef’s has on their website.

    Let your bread soak in 3 tbs of egg white each
    For a type of french toast kinda thing

  • hope you counted the calories in the cooking spray. get you a non stick teflon pan, and you wouldn’t need it. skip the olive oil, you save 135 calories.

  • Try cooking in the unions, avocado, Monterrey Jack cheese, and beans in with the eggs (like an omelet) and place that on a slightly cooked soft taco shell. Fold shell up and top with salsa and sour cream.. They are so good you will want want to eat at least three. Bon Appetite!

  • Man, really, you’re, like, the coolest fitness Youtuber ever. You smile all the time, and seem to be a pretty nice guy to be around.
    Great recipe!

    Greetings from Brazil.

  • You are weak.no disrespect if you have never tried or made this sandwich before than how can you endorse this thing?either way come to the bay area cali even a high school junior looks bigger than you.Forget about macros and shyt just eat!! Especially looking at your size!!!

  • Hi Abhinav I am confused which Whey supplement powder should i buy? i am getting options like Dymatize Nutrition Elite Whey Protein Powder 5 lbs (Rich Chocolate),Dymatize Elite 100% Whey Protein Supplement Powder, Pre and Post Workout Protein Powder, 5 lbs, 2.26 kg, Café Mocha, Dymatize Nutrition ISO 100 Whey Protein Isolate Powder 2.26 kg (Gourmet Chocolate),Dymatize Elite 100% Whey Protein 5 Lbs (Gourmet Vanilla)
    please recommend,are they different at flavor only or it has significance in terms of kind of ingredients?

  • My problem is I can’t find a good breakfast food that fills me up until lunch, and has enough protein that doesn’t have eggs. I hate eggs. I’m just drinking a smoothie rn in the mornings but I am usually starving by the time lunch comes around. Any ideas?

  • Oats and eggs works perfectly together. The meal feels like it was made on a farm somewhere in france on a hot summer day by a big and rough farmer.

  • I make your 4 ingredient protein bars almost daily! thank you for sharing your recipes! Your channel is my favorite for healthy recipes:D

  • ** “The Most Complete Muscle Cookbook And Nutrition Guide For Bodybuilding & Fitness On The Market With Over 200 Muscle Building Recipes, You Will Never Be Bored With Your Diet Again….”. **


  • Anabolic Cooking is 10 times better than any protein bar and it is alot cheaper!

  • Pro Tip: Put one of the cheese slices between the egg and ham so that its bread>cheese>egg>cheese>ham>bread.

    It will glue the whole sandwich together and keep everything in place.

  • Sir please reply….
    I want to lose fat at the same time I want to build muscles… I have been going to gym since 4 months… And you had said that “calories thodi kam lo and workout zyada to loss fat and build muscles”

  • My favourite has to be the French toast, made using vanilla protein powder and topped off with banana, blueberries and cinnamon. So good.

  • Onion tip Cut it all then throw in a container and add some type of oil and cover leave in fridge. Its ready to cook and will stay good for several days

  • Just noticed that the tuna patty in this video is titled as “10 min tuna patty” but in the actual recipe video it’s “5 min tuna patty”. My life just got easier ;D

  • snatches mic Ayo Mike ima let you finish..but Chris Jones got he best recipes of all time does Chris Jones taste test and drops mic lmao

  • From your recipe book, might have a video on these not sure, but the tune pita pockets are amazing eat them like every Saturday when i have a bit more time for breakfast! 

  • I can eat Scrambled eggs all day long, would add a few other things to it to yum it up some more, but you cant go wrong with eggs:)

    Thanks for the vid.

  • The overnight protein oats is one of my favourites. I have that at least 4 times a week. Wasn’t an oats fan until I found it in your cookbook. Keep up the great work.

  • Would you mind talking about gluten and lactose? There has been a lot of articles condemning these 2 ingredients. What’s your opinion on that? Tks

  • No wonder he can’t put on muscle. I eat 12 eggs for breakfast, and maybe 12 more later in the day. If your training hard you got to eat man! Putting pork in your body is ridiculous.

  • I did the absolutely delicious protein bars and the peanut butter cups, which are not in the vid but definitely worth to try on a cheat day:P
    man your gains are really astonishing! keep it up i totally appreciate your effort!

  • dude; you might want to actually go ahead and learn to cook before trying to show others how its done lol that looks like shit.. add some butter next time forget that PAM spray bs

  • Nice video.Hope you will remember the nutritional information next time you make any video,so you don’t have to look somewhere beneath (screen I guess��).

  • Here’s a little tip, don’t use Pam or nonstick cooking spray, it actually burns up whatever you sprayed with a lot easier. So you’re just fine using olive oil, butter, or whatever variations of these two. Hope this helps!

  • So the rice, is it the kind you microwave or is it just already cooked in the bag? so basically your breakfast burrito minus the shell.

  • Made the burritos for lunch post gym and they were NICE!! I might recommend roasting them for extra warmth and flavour though, thanks for the sweet meal idea!

  • Hello Michael, my favorite recipe by far is the four ingredient protein bar recipe, however, being a delicate woman (5’10” 180lb former Marine) I have added my own little touch to the bars by dipping them in chocolate. I know its added calories but I am willing to take the hit for it and it keeps me from becoming too violent with others. LOL. Have a great one, keep up the good work with the videos. GOD BLESS.

  • Sir in muscle building shake whey protein can exchange with some other food pls let me know about it other than that this video is very helpful for me

  • Excellent video content! Sorry for the intrusion, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you considered Ponnordaz Impressive Remedy (probably on Google)? It is an awesome exclusive product for discovering how to pack on solid muscle mass minus the normal expense. Ive heard some super things about it and my friend Sam finally got cool results with it.
