I had someone ask me a little about my time doing DC training on a board, and I thought I'd repost it here.
Pretty much did DC exactly like Dante lays it out. The main thing I did was big eating again (clean a good portion of the time but some junk in there to up the cals too). I kept cardio up pretty high, 45 minutes of steady state 3 times a week on off days, and drank a shit load of green tea. I did the program to the T and it worked awesome. I was ready mentally though. I don't know that I'd want to do that kind of thing again anytime soon. But it certainly got me over the rut I had been in for a long while.
I was also living in Wichita during the week and coming home on the weekend so all week I just trained and ate and could focus on that. I still remember my diet at the time.
5:30 or 6:00 - two scoops of protein powder in pineapple and orange juice
8:00 - at work I would throw 4 egg whites and two whole eggs with cheese and turkey in it into the microwave and heat it up until cooked. Everyone complained every single morning for a year about this. I'd have two pieces of bread with natural peanut butter on it, a whole grapefruit, and a cup of oatmeal.
10:30 - MacDonalds run. I would get 4-6 regular hamburgers.
12:30 - Two chicken breasts with rice and veggies.
3:30 - Pre-training - Oatmeal with protein powder
5:00 - Training - gatorade with bcaa
6:30 - Post Training - Usually my training partner and I would go to one of two Japanese places we liked and I'd get more some chicken and rice dish.
8:30 - 9:00 - Usually another shake in milk. Sometimes I would have bought two things of the chicken and rice from the Japan place.
The other thing was, I had no distractions so I was in bed by 9:30 almost every night. This was my diet pretty much for a solid year. After I got home full time I think it changed a little but not much. I think the diet, as usual, played the biggest part in growing again. Not that DC isn't a great size gaining program but anytime I think of times I got bigger or smaller the diet was the biggest difference.
