How Do Prisoners Get So Buff After Having Bad Meals All the Time?
Eating bad and still getting gains. I have a friend that has been in and out of city and county jail, as well as state and federal prison his entire adult life. Great guy with a big heart; he just can’t help but make stupid decisions and get involved with the wrong people. Everything from drug trafficking and manufacturing to counterfeiting. He just HAS to do dumb shit. However, something that is a running joke with everyone that knows him–he is always lean and fit, but every time he spends time in jail, he gets fat. He is not the go and work out just to pass the time kind of person. He, also is not combative or aggressive. He has a ton of charisma and is very entertaining and pleasant to be around.
Therefore, he doesn’t have to do like many inmates and join up with a group for protection and work out to protect himself. In general, everyone likes him. When someone messes with him, someone else always stands up for him. Also, his prison job usually ends up being in the kitchen as a cook or something related, and he’s a hell of a cook. Prisoners here are usually fed well. It is the other things that they choose to get involved with while in prison that impacts their eating and work-out habits.
