For bodybuilders, dedication in the gym is just as essential as dedication in the kitchen. Those hours-long workouts would likely be wasted if these athletes didn’t have the carbs, fats, and proteins to back them up. But many might find a bodybuilder’s nutrition plan to be boring.
In a video published on his YouTube channel on Oct. 21, 2022, bodybuilder William Bonac and Mr. Olympia contender walked fans through his full day of eating as he preps for the big show in December 2022. And as you’ll see, he looks less than enthused:

Bonac begins the video appropriately with his first meal of the day, which consists of 250 grams of rice, 200 grams of chicken breast, and salad. He doesn’t specify when this meal takes place or what his workout schedule looks like for the day, but he emphasizes that his meal plan remains consistent throughout his prep.
Bonac’s second meal is virtually identical to the first, except that it includes 350 grams of rice and 250 grams of steak. Bonac doesn’t mention how long he waits between meals but lets everyone know he’s undoubtedly not enjoying eating forkfuls of steak.
I’m starting to get bored now.
Bonac says he’s been eating clean since last year‘s Olympia, with a small break to recover from surgery. His season prep began in May 2022, and he’s followed virtually the same diet.
“Our total prep is like eight months,” Bonac says. “I’m going to eat this for eight months — every day, the same thing. [There are] some changes [and] different sources of protein, but still, every day is the same sort of meal.”
Bonac recently weighed in at 120.3 kilograms (265 pounds) in his quest to bulk up for the 2022 Mr. Olympia contest. Soon, he will begin the cutting phase of his diet to get as lean and shredded as possible.
Meals Three, Four, and Five
The third meal of the day is a little different. It includes 300 grams of potatoes and six eggs, three of which include the yolk. Bonac doesn’t go into much detail about this plate other than to mention that he slathers the food in ketchup to help get it down.
Bonac’s fourth meal of the day was again 250 grams of rice with 250 grams of fried fish. His fifth meal echoed his first of the day: 275 grams of rice and 250 grams of chicken with a salad.
Bonac discussed his plans for the 2022 Mr. Olympia in the video above. He seeks to be as heavy as possible to compete with the two-time reigning Mr. Olympia Mamdouh “Big Ramy” Elssbiay and Nick Walker. Endless rice, chicken, and steak bowls might be the necessary evil to fulfill that goal.
