With all the less-than-awesome news coming out of Deloitte these days, we're thrilled to have an example to share with you all that shows not all accountants are Cheeto-eating shlubs.
Going Concern faithful, meet Andy Kalinowski, a natural bodybuilder out of Deloitte.
Andy does 40 minutes of cardio a day, five days a week and his meal plan looks something like this:
Carbs: 150grams- Only Whole grain brown rice and oatmeal
Protein: 350grams- Grilled Chicken and Righteous Whey Protein
Fat: under 40 grams- Natural Peanut Butter and Flax Seed Oil
Here's what that kind of dedication gets you:
Did y'all read that? SEVEN meals a day. Maybe it's more like eight based on the interview he gave Boston 'burb publication GoLocalWorchester:
"When I first started working at Deloitte, people thought I was crazy because I was always eating," Kalinowski said to GoLocalWorcester. "They were like 'Who is this guy?' I was bringing eight different pre-packaged meals to keep my metabolism going all day. It was a little strange to them."
The 23-year-old is a professional bodybuilder with the World Natural Bodybuilding Federation (WNBF) and won his pro card at the INBF Natural Connecticut middleweight and overall title.
The thing we admire most about this buff Bostonian is that he helps set a good example for the would-be buff bodied kids out there, showing them that bodybuilding doesn't have to mean being jacked up on juice. "When kids look at fitness magazines and pictures, they don't realize that the models they're looking at are probably on a variety of illegal substances," Kalinowski said. "To me, that's just dishonest. Also, why would I work so hard to look good if something I'm putting in my body can lead to health problems down the road?" Ethics for the win!
Andy earned his accounting degree from UMass-Amherst and is currently trying to gain another 10 - 15 pounds in the off season for competitions ahead.
Andy, if you're reading this, we're totally behind you... checking out your tight ass, obviously.
UPDATE: Andy must have a Google alert set up for himself as he promptly got in touch after this was posted and insisted that the least I could have done was post some more recent photos of what hard work and eight meals a day does for one's body. Because we strive to uphold the highest standards of journalistic integrity, here are some more current photos of Andy:
Nice job, kid!
