Bodybuilder Nick Walker’s full day’s meal consists of 4,567 calories

Only a handful of bodybuilders on the planet are in the conversation as a potential Mr. Olympia champion. Nick Walker is one such bodybuilder. The 2021 Arnold Classic champion exited the 2021 Mr. Olympia contest ranked fifth overall – an impressive outing for the 27-year-old’s Olympia debut. His goal is to improve on that finish in 2022 with the ultimate goal of lifting the Sandow Trophy above his head.

To fuel his training, Walker needs to eat a lot of food — 4,567 calories a day, to be exact. He took to his YouTube channel on December 1, 2021 to share all the food he eats in a full day and the times he eats those meals. Check it out below:

Walker’s day starts at 7:20 a.m. to feed her pup, Thor. Thor eats a bowl of kibble and rice, washing it down with water. Walker starts his day with liquids and a kind of meditation. He drinks water and then has his morning iced coffee while sitting on his back porch for up to 45 minutes. Once Walker’s head is clear and he feels relaxed, he returns to the kitchen to pick up his daily supplements.

Stack of Nick Walker Supplements

Most of the supplements Walker uses are made by Revive Supplements as they sponsor him and other elite bodybuilders like Iain Valliere, Melissa Valliere, Arash Rabar, Ashton Penny and three-time Classic Physique Olympia champion Chris Bumstead, among others.

Walker follows up his stack of supplements with his morning protein shake:

At 9:22, Walker finally opens his cupboards to prepare his first meal of the day before his training session.

Only me

  • 75 grams of hot cereal
  • 80 grams of banana
  • 100 grams of blueberries
  • 20 grams of almond butter
  • pink salt

In a second separate bowl:

Note: Walker did not reveal the amount of each ingredient in the second bowl.

Although Walker hasn’t had any digestive issues since adding the GI supplement to his morning routine, he still advocates eating foods that digest best. An example is the exchange of jasmine rice for cream of rice. The macronutrients are maintained, but the cream of rice “goes down more easily”.

After about an hour, Walker feels like he’s digested his pre-workout meal and is preparing for his real pre-workout before hitting the gym.

Pre-workout drink

Note: Raw is a supplement brand.

Walker’s back workout consisted of the following:

After her workout, Walker drinks a post-workout that also includes 20 grams of raw EAA. At 12:20 p.m., Walker prepares the second meal:

meal two

  • Chicken
  • Rice
  • Onions
  • peppers
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Garlic
  • Sweet poppy sauce

That day, Walker got a haircut to tighten up her look before measuring out the third meal:

meal three

meal four

  • Chicken
  • peppers
  • Rice
  • macadamia nut oil
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Garlic

After putting the above ingredients in a bowl and putting it in the microwave, Walker turns to the camera and shares his thoughts on his diet:

Simple shit, guys. It’s the same routine every day. The same foods every day. It’s consistency that counts.

Walker goes over the same meals every day of the week with a cheat meal once in a while. Despite the monotony of his diet, Walker admits he “never gets tired of it” as he finds the meals he prepares tasty. At 7:13 p.m., Walker makes meal five the same as meal four.

meal five

  • Chicken
  • peppers
  • Rice
  • macadamia nut oil
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Garlic

Although Walker has no qualms about following the same diet for long periods of time, he thinks it’s the hardest part of bodybuilding for others.

Anyone can diet for a day; one week. Give it a month. Can you do it for four months… five months in a row; a whole year? Training is easy…the fun part.

Walker’s last meal is at 9:30 p.m.:

Meal Six

A shake consisting of:

Walker mixes the above with water and uses it to wash down the following supplements:

  • Vitamin C
  • Pepsin GI
  • Glucose

Walker then prepares his last meal of the day:

  • Steak
  • Onions
  • peppers
  • Hot cereal
  • Almond butter

When Walker weighs himself in the morning, the scale shows him at 280 pounds. He didn’t hint at how he felt about that bodyweight, or if his goal was to increase or decrease it. As Walker believes consistency is key – it certainly paid off in his 2021 season – we’ll see if sticking to his diet and training schedule in 2022 will see him progress through the ranks at Olympia 2022. .
