Jason Wittrock

Physique Competitor

Jason Wittrock, and his passion for fitness first developed when he was only 8 years old. This was due to the high energy he had as a child. His mother would send him to his room as a punishment for bad behavior from time-to-time, as he’d act out in frustration.

To pass the time, Jason would start doing hundreds of push-ups and sit-ups hours on end. He quickly became addicted to the feeling of working out. Jason continued from there, slowly becoming more passionate about the fitness lifestyle.

By the age of 33, Wittrock established himself as a pioneer in the industry. Known for helping people with mental disorders and obesity problems with his training and nutrition advice.

Biography

Early Life

Born and raised in Atlanta, US, Jason Wittrock has always been an athletic child growing up. According to him, he was so energetic that his mother had to punish him for acting out.

Jason said he would be sent to a room as a punishment and spend a rest of the day there, doing push ups to pass the time.

As he was spending several hours per day in his room doing various bodyweight exercises, Jason noticed that his body was slowly starting to change. This motivated him to exercise more.

It came to a point where he became addicted to the feeling of  the “pump” and it wasn’t long before he got himself a pair of dumbbells so he could train more seriously.

College

Jason continued training with more intensity each day, and by the time he entered college, he already had several years of serious weightlifting experience.

However, it wasn’t until he started watching his diet that he saw the biggest changes in his physique.

Wittrock said how he was amazed by the way he could manipulate his body by changing his diet, and also said how it made him become even more addicted with training.

A New Direction

After finishing college, Jason was in his best shape of his life. One of the trainers in the gym where Wittrock was training noticed his awesome physique and how hard he trained.

Jason said how he was approached by the trainer, an IFBB Pro named Carmella, who suggested to him that he should consider competing.

Needless to say, that was a turning point in Jason’s career and he immediately started to work out harder in order to prepare for the competition. He said; “That was the beginning of my bodybuilding career and it changed my life forever.”

It wasn’t long before he started competing in various amateur shows, where he received impressive results.

Major Competitions

Even though Jason is yet to get a Pro status, he managed to accomplish some impressive positions.

Some of his best results were the 1st place victory at the Georgia State Championships and the Coastal USA’s,  and a respectable 16th place at the Nationals, where he competed along side some of the best physiques in the USA.

He said how he decided to take some time away from the stage so he could fully commit to his training and diet, and eventually bring to the stage his best possible physique, and enter the professional league.

A Great Cause

Since the beginning of his journey into fitness at the age of 8, Jason became a personal trainer, physique competitor, and a fitness icon with ever growing popularity on social media.

However, the most notable of them all is his activity in the institutions for obesity and mental disorders, where he constantly helps people transform their lives.

According to Jason, many people suffer from serious mental illnesses, and due to the medication they take, they become obese and die at an early age. His main cause is to change that by giving people the correct guidance on nutrition, training, and health in general. He said how some of the people he’s helped so far have achieved amazing results in only a short space of time.

Jason continues to look forward to what future holds for him and his cause helping others in need, and for everyone interested in health and fitness.

Nutrition

Dieting Philosophy

When it comes to his diet regimen, Jason is different from many other fitness icons. The main reason for this is his specific Keto diet – Wittrock significantly restricts the amount of carbs he consumes per day, fats being the staple of his macronutrient plan.

He consumes very little carbs, a lot of healthy fats, and a moderate amount of protein. According to him, keto diet is the best option because it allows him to use fat as a fuel, instead of glucose, and claims there are numerous health benefits to this type of diet.

Meal Plan

When Jason isn’t following a strickt Keto diet, he’ll incorporate some complex carbs and whole grains. Jason’s daily diet looks something like this:

  • Meal 1: 7 a.m.

Whey Protein, 1 scoop

1 Organic Banana

  • Meal 2: 10 a.m.

Eggs, 4 whole

Ezekiel Bread (with butter), 2 slices

  • Meal 3: 1 p.m.

Diced Chicken Breast, 1 cup

Brown Rice, 1/2 cup

Steamed Broccoli, 1/2 cup

  • Meal 4: 4 p.m.

Ground Turkey, 1/2 cup

1 Avocado

  • Meal 5: 7 p.m.

Diced Chicken Breast, 1 cup

Brown Rice, 1/2 cup

Steamed Broccoli, 1 cup

  • Meal 6: 9 p.m.

Whey Protein, 1 scoop

1 Organic Banana

He’s born in 1990? He does not look 27!

Thanks for spotting that Karthik, that’s been updated.

All the best,

Greatest Physiques

He isn’t 175-185lbs. He weighed himself in a recent YouTube video and he is 146lbs!! Misinformation. And misleading people.

Thanks Matt. We work hard to try and get our stats right, but sometimes they slip through the net! We’ve updated this now.

he doesn’t eat rice or bananas… even 1/2 cup is too much carbs for his whole day… at least copy what he eats in one of is “what i eat in a day video” like, you don’t even have keto coffee on there… he has it EVERY day, he usually trains just having that… doesn’t really eat breakfast, and he typically has 2 big meals a day. You’re really mixing things up, because that “diet” isn’t keto.

Hi Jocy, thanks for your input, you’ll see that we state: “When Jason isn’t following a strict Keto diet” before we list his ‘non-keto’ diet. Either way, your info is much appreciated, good job ?
