Hi! My name is Jonathan Clarke, and this is my blog - Junkfood Bodybuilding.
The goal of this blog is to primarily do two things:
1.) Document the progress I am making with regard to my physique.
2.) More interestingly - show that it is possible to have fun, through crazy eating stunts/feats, while maintaining and improving said physique.
My philosophy when it comes to dieting:
I am of the belief that there are a myriad of effective diets out there; however, what is effective for one person may not necessarily work for another. Additionally, in order for a diet to be successful it must be first and foremost sustainable.
What is my current diet like?
I'm glad you asked. Currently I am following a variation of the Slow Carb Diet, as popularized by Tim Ferris in his book the 4 Hour Body http://fourhourbody.com/. The variation comes in the form of Intermittent Fasting (IF), of which I am following Martin Berkhan's Leangains protocol http://www.leangains.com/ This probably sounds like a bunch of fitness/nutrition jargon at this point, and I promise that I will go into greater detail about both of these diets at a later date. For now, however, I would like to focus on the one aspect of my diet that makes it unique and pertains to the title of this blog. And that is....
THE CHEAT DAY
Ahh yes, the cheat day. That day of glorious respite, the reward for a week of strict devotion to one's nutritional code, freedom from any and all dietary restraints. Sound crazy? It is. Does the cheat day work for everyone? Certainly not. Does it work for me? Hell yes. Words to describe (my) cheat days: gluttonous, excessive, crazy, extreme, but above all else FUN. I believe that with a little creativity any diet can be made fun, and taking my cheat days to the extreme is just one way I am doing so with mine. I have discovered recently that I have a talent for eating a lot of food. Fast. To put this talent to the test I plan on using my cheat days to attempt crazy eating feats and challenges.
These challenges will be documented here as well as my new Youtube channel, also called Junkfood Bodybuilding - http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_REKUi_xLg468e4ysB_ZIQ
Hope you enjoy following my progress, if you have any thoughts or comments I would love to hear them!
