"I’m not naturally a big person," Hardwick told Kaplan. "So it took a lot of effort for me to sustain that weight."

He describes what he had to eat on a typical day in college to maintain his size:

  • A sub sandwich for breakfast.
  • A sub sandwich for lunch.
  • 2 pounds of ground beef on tortillas for dinner.
  • A 600-700 calorie protein shake before bed.
  • Another 600-700 calorie protein shake at 3 a.m.

But once Hardwick reached NFL-type size, he still had to overindulge in order to maintain his body mass.
