Brandon obviously takes his nutrition seriously, eating only clean and whole foods, but what any serious bodybuilder does is work to make sure they are getting adequate amounts of the right food. Important foods in Brandon’s diet are eggs, lean meats, beef, green vegetables, sweet potato, brown rice, fruits, and whatever supplements he sees fit, most notably, a protein powder.


When it comes to a solid supplementation routine, having the right supplements on your shelf and ready to go can greatly influence many of your gains. Looking for some staples, definitely check out protein powders, pre-workout, and intra-workout BCAAs, as these will offer great benefits to every single one of your workouts. For those looking for that added edge, and of course dependent on your goals, creatine, mass gainers, and fat burners are important supplements to check out as well. And to stay as healthy as possible, a multivitamin will give you those important vitamins and minerals so you never suffer a deficiency.
