What Pro Bodybuilders Eat For Lunch | Johnnie O. Jackson’s High Protein Meal

IFBB Pro Johnny O Jackson here what’s
up muscle and strength we’re here in my kitchen welcome to cook what I eat for
lunch fish is really important when you’re bodybuilding because less fat you don’t have to worry about the fat content and more
protein in all positive protein so you know I do tilapia and white rice white
rice is a simple carb it’s easy burned your body takes it in use what it needs and
it’s easy burn up the rest that it doesn’t without having lingering
calories in the body so it’s not a complex carb like oatmeal’s complex carb
potatoes are complex carbs so once you eat them they lay in your body a little
bit longer thus more chance of it turning into fat so with this I don’t
worry so much and then also the black beans it’s a good carb source but a good
protein source as well if you didn’t know that they’re going I’ll pop the
beans in the microwave you know it’s a filet is you know
there are the filets that you can get you get from Walmart or somewhere like that
that’s really flat you know those and then you got the thicker fillets that
you get from Costco which I have and yea they’re awesome clean not as gaming with
the rice there are faster ways to cook rice unfortunately I have the boil in
bag today success rice boil in bag that’s the rice I like but there’s Uncle
Ben’s also that’s a bag that you a microwavable bag that you put in for a
minute 30 and that’s obviously quicker because this takes 10 minutes to cook
where that is a min and 30 to warm up it’s precooked so I normally have those but
this is just as fast as just as convenient for me keeping it simple was so
important because once you get you know it’s fine if you don’t have anything
else to do in life but to you know sit there and prepare your meals and all
that stuff you know but I got a pretty busy life so you know I don’t have time to
sit there and prepare everything exactly the way I will want it or think of these
fancy deals to prepare so I just keep it simple so I get my food in me when I was
supposed to and I’ll keep moving down the road you’ll figure out really quick
and to be successful you don’t make things complicated you
keep things simple so you make it convenient so you can do it at the time
you’re supposed to do it and keep on down the road you don’t eat for comfort
you eat for convenience you know and the convenience is staying full so you can get
big alright guys this is my normal lunch
like I said white rice black beans and tilapia a good protein carb mix simple
tastes really great does the job so this is what I recommend if you’re not sure
what you want to do for lunch you can’t go wrong

    0:26 apparently your body doesn’t need fat when you do steroids. These videos are hilarious keep it up!

  • Braydon F

    Great video. Everyone seems to know more than the guy with all the results?🤔

  • Joshua Chaseling

    Zero nutrition right here

  • ederdeek

    117 grams of proteïne in this Meal? I dont believe that..At the most between 50/60 grams i think..
    Maybe I’ve been wrong, there are 26 gr out of 100 gr talapia fish.. so it could be..
    it’s a lot anyway

  • Dee Tyler

    Good too see someone implementing beans

  • Brandon Robinson

    Whoever calculated the macros for this meal is an idiot

  • etou

    "positive" protein… "simple carbs burn faster so less chance of turning into fat"… complex carbs bad cause "lingers in body and more chance of turning into fat." fucking hell lol

  • Xpress Fit Workoutz

    Nice, Simple, but effective.. i Like it!😊💪⚡

  • Adrian Edward Govender

    Someone hand this guy a Google search on how complex and simple carbs are digested. What a shame

  • Hao

    Did he eat another vegetables or fruits ?

  • Cortion Carter

    Tilapia taste good but it’s trash fish. It’s farm raised and it’s being raised poorly. Authentic tilapia comes from Africa and not many food companies are getting their tilapia from African. They’re getting farm raised from China

  • Dani

    Add Avocado with this meal👌

  • drewsky 100

  • Dream

    Silverback action

  • James King

    He lost me at tilapia 🙄


    So….. Unwashed, unseasoned fish, and un-thawed. Rice and beans….🤔
    Very tasty.

  • BB BBR

    did he just say complex carbs have more chance of turning into fat!?! wtf how is this when simple carbs have a much higher glycemic index?

  • Adis Bajic

    Where are the steroids?

  • Poland syndrome bodybuilding

    Isn’t tilapia nasty?

  • SaligkarAKIS

    I am eating black beans to, but i am wondering if it is healthy enough because it is canned.

  • John Karra

    Isnt he retired?

  • Marine Swoldier

    Those macros don’t look right

  • hitesh Patil

    Food is life 🍟🍟🍟

  • Mike Heidinger

    Black beans are a complex carb so you are making no sense cause you just said you don’t eat complex carbs

  • Mike LEE

    Amaizing how stupid some pro bodybuilders are. Come on johnny j. Black beans also have 18grams of fiber per can. Im not saying hes stupid just saying some are not very bright

  • Ariel Krankowski

    I eat something like this every day, so do not cheat people that it tastes great. you have to eat and forget.

  • Bruce Leroy

    90% of their diet is Tren and Test

  • Alton Chapman

    Keeping it simple has always worked for me, good advice 👍

  • Beastetic Fitness

    Maybe it works if on steroids but beans are bad for testosterone production. And tilapia is toxic fish no one should eat

  • miguel b

    White rice is very unhealthy try Brown rice dude

  • Dominate the Weight

    Microwave is killing you step by step.

  • namkul

  • WMD-C35

    Interesting comment about the white rice, it's hard for us to compare because these guys are huge so their metabolic rate is crazy, I use brown rice for bro reasons lol

  • cyberathletex1

    I know white girls who use more seasonings

  • iTreyyHD

    1:52 listen to what this guy says for the next 40 seconds. It makes no sense

  • Robson

  • Rob

    Tilapia is garbage. Bottom dwelling fish eats crap .good choice 👍🤣🤣

  • Antony P

    He’s still a monster … 👊🏼

  • bodler

    Why do pro bodybuilders try to avoid dietary fat? Good fats like saturated and monosat have so many benefits, even some that can apply to bodybuilding.

  • Naveed Iqbal

    It's great how nowadays we are eating more legumes and beans to get our protein needs instead the old school meat only, alot easier on the digestion and colon lol, great vid muscle and strength keep em coming

  • Chris Morrell

    Cheap and convenient. Perfect approach.

  • Charles Smith

    Unhealthy bra. All processed foods

  • RonaldReaganJr

    117 grams of protein in one sitting? White rice over brown with no mention of it being a post workout meal? I knew more about nutrition at age 19 than he does at age 45. Please stop showing in any capacity other than lifting in the gym.

  • dadondutta

  • Stephen Lynch

  • Matthew Johnson

  • yacine2

    Never take advices from a pregnant bodybuilder

  • shreddercaster

  • T Gibson

  • Rich Homie Tron

  • John Cummings

  • Stephan Reichelt

    how about a rice cooker?

  • nakea simone

    It’s nothing clean about Tilapia especially farm raised 🤢 If I do white fish I’m looking for wild caught Cod or Albacore

  • Don Que

    I weigh 380lbs I eat lots of ass everyday try it

  • bnj0828

    All these bodybuilder dudes never use any seasoning. All little Garam Masala, black pepper won't hurt.

  • zo p


  • mr munson

    Simple carbs better.lol. Oh yeah. Eat cake because of the simple carbs, because you will burn the sugar off faster, and eating porridge or sweet potato will.cause you put in weight, that is basically what he is saying. Do not follow his advice on carbs. There is a time and place for different carbs source, but what he said is wrong.

  • Lliioonn Heart

    Yo 2 tilapia fillets and rice and beans is 115g protein??????????? Since when. There's no way in the world that what he's got on that plate is that many grams of protein.

  • Stan Kormy
