In the second phase, sound nutrition is crucial to your hard efforts in the gym By Jim Stoppani, PhD PHOTOS BY IAN LOGAN

autopilot after completing four weeks of the Challenge. The last thing you want to do is let your nutrition slip by reverting back to inconsistent meals where empty carbs and bad fats take precedence. In Month 2, you enter the intermediate phase of the Rock-Hard Diet. On the high-calorie days, you’ll take in roughly 16 calories per pound of bodyweight (2,800 for a 180-pound individual), about 15 calories per pound on medium-calorie days (2,600 for a 180-pounder) and 13 or so calories per pound (2,400 calories) on low-calorie days. Even so, protein intake remains at 1.5 grams per pound of bodyweight per day, if not slightly higher. But now that you’re eating

dictory to increase dietary fat while trying to decrease bodyfat, you need to eat more healthy fats from sources such as egg yolks, fish and nuts — and even saturated fat from beef — to maintain high testosterone levels when you drop your carbs. It’s unlikely these calories will be stored as bodyfat, seeing as how your carb levels are low and your training volume is high. We suggest that you allow just one cheat day every other week during this

fewer calories, protein represents about 45% of your daily total; carbs drop to 35%, which is just under 1.5 grams per pound of bodyweight during high- and medium-calorie days, and down to around 1.25 grams per pound on low-calorie days. Dropping carbs this low will help you burn even more fat than before. Fat intake increases slightly to about 15%–20% of total daily calories this month. Although it may seem contra-

In Month 2, carbs drop and protein stays high to help you lose fat and add muscle

>> Simply rotate through these sample meal plans for your high-calorie, medium-calorie and low-calorie days every day throughout the month. Keep in mind, these menus are designed for a 180-pound individual, so adjust portion sizes accordingly for your bodyweight.

month. These two cheat days should equal about 20 calories per pound of bodyweight (about 3,600 calories for a 180-pounder) and emphasize carbohydrates — at least 3 grams per pound of bodyweight — while making sure your protein intake is at least 1 gram per pound. And if you’re craving certain foods like pizza and beer, feel free to have them on your cheat days, but try to keep your fat intake reasonable; you’re better off eating high-carb, sugary items than greasy fried foods. This will help keep your metabolism revved by maintaining adequate levels of leptin, the hormone that controls appetite and metabolism. The meal plans beginning on page 127 — high-, medium- and low-calorie days — have been specifically designed to support your added training during Month 2 of the Rock-Hard Challenge. As with any effective program, exercise and diet go hand in hand. m&f
