In the interview, Cam says that the first three months of training were the most difficult - every day he had to spend several hours in the gym, and his diet consisted exclusively of high-protein food.


In order to gain dry muscle mass with a minimal percentage of subcutaneous fat, Gigandet adhered to a low-carbohydrate diet with a high protein content. He took food in small portions 6-7 times a day.

The variation of such a diet is a keto diet that causes the body to switch, and use subcutaneous fat as energy. The main advantage of the diet is that you do not burn muscle, as occurs with other diets. Read more about keto here.
