For dinner, Aldis eats bison. Praising it, Aldis said:

Bison is nice. It’s lean, fantastic source of protein.”

Aldis also consumes supplements along with above cooked foods. He particularly prefers the protein supplement called Isopure. He revealed:

“It does the job. I don’t feel heavy. I don’t feel slow, sluggish, any of that.”

Thus, Aldis consumes a high protein diet that is rich in vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats. It gives him quick energy, provides for increase of muscle mass and repair of tissues and muscles torn during the intense workout sessions. He procures the protein from foods and supplements. The nuts provide him with omega 3 fatty acids and vitamins and minerals.
