    Your nuitritin advice seems to follow what is recommended for people over 50 now--eat high fiber foods, watch your chloresterol intake, eat fish such as salmon, avoid bakery items. See the book Harvard guide to Nutrition (I beleive that's the title--should be in your county library.) Also use canola or olive oil, watch red meat consumption.

    I would add that the other thing is to learn portion control. 8 oz of meat is not very much--about the size of a deck of playing cards--read the nutrition labels on the food, and MEASURE the correct size--you'll be amazed as to how little a 'normal' sized portion meal actually is. As an aside, one reason mentioned why Americans are overweight comparted to their European counterparts--our portions are just so large.

    Evan, you must have run into that portion size difference when you were in Italy. In fact, most nutritionists reccommend the mediterranean diet. Do you have any thoughts on the subject? Probably easier for you as you have an Italian background--just watch the canolis.

    Correction, the book is Eat, Drink and be Healthy, by Willet and Shearett, should also be in paperback now.

    hey evan- i read that you spent some time in Italy. Im in my last year of highschool and my dad really wants to send me to Spain to study and broaden my horizons, it sounds cool but somewhat nerve racking. I compete here in the NPC texas and am really trying to maximize my potential through hard training and dieting ive been at it since age 14. I actually occasionally workout with lee priest he trains at my gym. Just wondering how the lifestyle was as living in a european country and being a young bodybuilder. Any advice as what to do. One thing I am looking forward to is the WOMEN! heard they arent too hard on the eyes. haha
    peace

    Evan,
    Keep up the good work on this thread. If Bush ever suspects WMD at MD inspectors will no doubt head straight to check out your guns.

I truely appreciate you taking the time to answer this question in the way you have. I felt like I was in college again and recieving a well thought out lecture. I cannot thank you enough and I am reviewing your response with my son right now!

    Meatball: GO TO SPAIN! I went back and forth about whether or not to go to Italy and honestly bro, it is one of th best thing I have ever done if not THE best. You will come back from it (if you ever come back) a better person having experienced another culture. Europe in general is incredible. If you take one piece of advice from me, listen when I tell you to go. Bring as much money as you can and travel as much as humanly possible, it is worth every penny. It's one of the only things I would even consider being in debt for. The food is incredible all over Europea and the lifestyle is second to none, especially for a bodybuilder. I don't think I ever slept as much as I did in Italy or ate as well. Food and sleep, what more can you ask for. Oh yeah, you mentioned the girls are okay too huh? I'm sure you heard right. The ONE (and probably only) drawback is that finding a good gym over there will probably be next to impossible. You'll find one but it won't be what you're used to at home. But I'm sure you'll be able to make due. Oh yeah, regardless of what you heard, Europeans aren't in love with Americans. They all hate George Bush and the war and all that crap. But trust me, bodybuilding isn't going anywhere. You're only in high school? Don't give it another thought. Go go go! Just go. You'll piss me off if you don't.

    Evan-
    I'm very interested in hearing about the ways different people diet. For my last show I took an approach much like yours with higher essential fats and very low carbs and I mean LOW. The funny thing was that I was not walking around irritated all day or in a bad mood due to low carbs. I'm pretty convinced its all a state of mind. This sport is so much mental than anything else. So anyway....now that its your off-season, what are you doing as far as good fats? I've switched over to Omega-3 eggs in the morning and am trying to use Udo's oil in conjunction with my meals. As weird as it sounds, I was always under the impression you needed carbs to grow in the off-season, which you do, just not in the amounts I once thought. I think I grow better with the higher fats and I sure feel a whole heck of a lot better. Any input is greatly appreciated.
