  • * Pham only made and consumed half of the protein pancake recipe. Below are the macro calculations for the eggs, sausages, 1 protein pancake, and fruit.
    Adjusted Macros: 680 Calories, 32.2g of Fat, 38.3g of Carbs, 53.6g of Protein.

  • Its all nice and good, but 96% of bodybuilders do not have beautiful and spacious kitchens like this guy. The vast majority of bodybuilders have to cut back on whats proper to eat because of money issues. And the small money they do have to spend on nutrition, was probably acquired by allowing gays to blowjob them (the ones i knew got their bulking money through this method).

  • Hey M&S can you start your videos with a short intro for lesser known athletes like Pham? Didn’t know what he did but it would’ve been cool if he said he was a functional trainer.

  • You guys really believe that physique with that tight thin waist is real? Looooool… this dude on crazy ‘Steroids’ Skin Thinners + this dude deffo got Plastic Surgery

  • Nice. I squeeze half a lemon & sprinkle pepper on my eggs. Sometimes add a lil bit of racha or tapatio for a lil kick. Def better sub for salt that works for me

  • I like this video, he is real and genuine and he says that he was learning how to cook. so I think the comments making fun of him are a little bit unfair

  • I’m at the gym by 5am and then at work for 9 hours after. Ain’t nobody got time for this. Put some Ezekiel bread in the toaster, throw some egg whites on and go. Do your big eats at work.

  • Now that he’s Mr O, we can stop arguing about how good of a bodybuilder he is (ha ha, like the hate and criticism will ever stop) but I come here for the personality as much as for the plates. Cbum is like a brotherly influence. I genuinely feel fond of him. He’s such a good dude.

  • I wouldn’t eat this unless I was dirty bulking, I use ground turkey or lean ground beef in my eggs or steak in my eggs, sandwich meats and pre packaged processed oats? No thanks.

  • but how was that 850 cal tho the eggs were about 200 cream o wheat about 130 a scoop of life powder 130. that leaves 390 cal for the pistachio and rice cracker w butter which doesn’t add up

  • God damn. Patrick Moore looks nuts. I really hope the judging can swing in his favour a little bit. It’s unfortunate that having a giant blocky waist actually helps bodybuilders, because it makes them look bigger overall, even if they have the same amount of muscle.
    Edit: Okay this video clearly got recommended to a bunch of random people. Almost every single comment is the same exact steroid joke. They saw 50 others making the same joke, and then thought they should definitely make the same joke.

  • use pam spray ☑️
    cook eggs/egg whites from a carton ☑️
    microwave oatmeal ☑️
    mix protein powder in the oats or eggs ☑️
    have peanut/ almond butter somewhere in the video ☑️
    ok onto the next muscle and strength what pro body builders eat for breakfast video

  • I’ve looked up so damn much stuff I’ve felt guilty (yeah that’s really bad I don’t own the whole damn planet)!! But don’t deprive future generations. Lookup vintage meals from the 50’s & 60s etc to carry into our future I have but GET INTO IT. A healthy 1960s dish for bodybuilders I say is chicken divan. the 1960s was all about casseroles also lookup about defeating obesity & all the ins and outs there!! the main thing is we have to look towards the future not worry about the present in all who’s involved.ill keep making recommendations for millennial puppers of stuff to lookup. Two of main ones for obesity is vit d & protein but how does that and more all play in I was gonna look it up but I’ll leave it to you guys to lookup they found that vitamin D is one of the main ones for longevity. Let’s start getting past what everybody knows nobody really cares what other people know. if you notice the ones that are all worried about that are also worried about bringing about the tribulation for their own means and what would that be!?!?!?!!!?!!!? People are just concerned about what other people are about. The bombs drop the fat woman loses her ice cream lofl!!!!!! Stock the peanut butter etc etc. Also watch the day after from 1983 and give your input millennials and compare it to the events since then and our present day and how you think of things I’ll keep giving it about projects for you to tackle. I’ve looked up so damn much stuff I’ve felt guilty. But don’t deprive future generations. Lookup vintage meals from the 50’s & 60s etc to carry into our future I have but GET INTO IT.

Two of main ones for obesity is vit d & protein but how does that and more all play in I was gonna look it up but I’ll leave it to you guys to lookup. I’m going to ask of you Millennials to take care of our society & our planet one way or the other. with that I’m also asking you to relax about trying to get all knowledge about everything that’s ridiculous leave things for future generations too. watch like the day after from 1983 and how depressing that s*** is and compared to today and have discussions about where to proceed in our society. Also look up our history from the 1940s to the present and make major differentiations

  • Thanks… for revealing your breakfast is to be the biggest… and oatmeal makes my stomach hurt… so I use pumpkin seeds 56g for the carbs.. that’s 40g of carbs the seeds produce… and a banana would be great in that oatmeal

  • Everybody in the comments that says “roids” can’t even bench the 135.. smh ���� Keyboard Warriors these days..ain’t got nothing else to do but try to put someone elses hard work to rest..and if he even is on gear, who cares.. like don’t get me wrong, roids are very bad for your health but i can’t stand seeing ppl genuinely comment “roids” lol.�� i would only care if someone was on roids if they are misinforming their audience with bullshit that would only apply to somebody on gear or any other bologna.

  • People In the comment section saying to much artificial to much this that blah blah blah but yet they are the ones eating like shit smh

  • Now that I know what do they eat I am curious about what do they inject. Bodybuilding shouldn’t be considered as a sport cause it’s not natural.

  • Thanks for this video of course every Athlete with different ideas and this video is important to all of us who is in the iron game! Just thanks alot and God bless you always!

  • What’s great about this, easy to make, doesn’t take a lot of time, and no quibbling about things like the yolks, etc. Healthy as well as tasty-just gotta think into breakfast a bit more.

  • Pro tips:
    Costco for egg whites, more cost efficient.

    Never crack the egg over the skillet, unless you want to fish for the little annoying egg shells ������

  • Hey M&S can you start your videos with a short intro for lesser known athletes like Pham? Didn’t know what he did but it would’ve been cool if he said he was a functional trainer.

  • I see a lot of videos like this one because one of my dreams is to compete just like you, and I love nutrition. And I can tell you are a smart guy, some physiques or bodybuilding just know to say you have to eat, but I can see you have more brain. And congratulations for your second place.

  • but how was that 850 cal tho the eggs were about 200 cream o wheat about 130 a scoop of life powder 130. that leaves 390 cal for the pistachio and rice cracker w butter which doesn’t add up

  • I’ve read some of these comments and noticed that some of you people complain way too much about the smallest things!! Too much sugar, too many artificial flavors blah, blah, blah… ����‍♀️My gosh! Is everything supposed to be perfect? NO!! Main thing is that you’re doing your best to be healthy, exercise and still be able to enjoy life. SUCK IT UP BUTTERCUPS!! ��

  • Guys like him should be bodybuilders. Looks like he has awesome genetics, and he does all this while enjoying this, not forcing himself only for the results.

  • 3 x egg whites, 1 x whole egg, half a RIPE(!) avocado, bit of cheese all done together as an omelette. Bowl of oats with blueberries and honey. Cup of good strong coffee.

  • You can chug the batter if you’re really stuck for time. Egg doesn’t absorb as readily when raw but oatflakes are already rolled and baked so they are ‘cooked’.

  • There’s no way you do this every morning bro you’re not even accurate plus you’re having a hard time cooking. Can’t even explain anything right. I bet someone does all his meal prepping for him lol

  • I really don’t get the point in making this videos about what they eat, all of them eat exactly the same. Is there a successful body builder that actually eats a good quality diet??

  • opens baking powder “It never comes with a scoop in it.”

    When you’re so dedicated to supplements you think everything comes with a scooper

  • Now that I know what do they eat I am curious about what do they inject. Bodybuilding shouldn’t be considered as a sport cause it’s not natural.

  • I made this once with Glutamine and my mom saw it, now she adds it to every sweet recipe, she thinks it adds a sweet flavour to it

  • I don’t know why I am watching this I know it’s going to be something with oats and eggs modified to fit their macros and calories. Personally waffles over pancakes!

  • Got a similar recipe to this from the Animal Pak forums almost 13 years ago that I still use to this day.

    5-6 egg whites
    1 cup oats
    1 whole ripe banana
    2 packets Splenda
    1 tsp cinnamon

    That is the base recipe posted but I’ve modified it by adding baking powder and some kind of liquid (milk, almond milk, heavy whipping cream, etc…).

  • Can I prepare it in the evening and store it in the fridge and take it as my preworkout meal the next morning? I wonder if the protein could be damaged when cooking or storing in the fridge

  • How adorable he’s giving us the breakdown on when to turn a pancake. I would imagine every adult watching this would know how to cook a pancake or I would hope so. LOL.

  • currently i have 6 eggs scrambled with almond milk every morning but it’s becoming a bitch to get down and i could use more carbs early on so ima try this.. a good middle ground

  • Might make a big batch and just have them in the fridge for the morning or take some to work, have had pancakes before, but tend to eat them all when made:(

    Maple Syrup is what I like on them.
