Seth Feroce Workout and DIET
Born in Pennsylvania, Seth Feroce was bullied for being overweight. He got his start early on when his dad gave him a set of weights and got him a gym membership. Feroce took weightlifting seriously and became devoted to bodybuilding magazines. In high school, he played football and was on the wrestling team. After earning a Bachelor’s degree in Safety Sciences from the University of Pennsylvania, he worked as a safety consultant but did not enjoy it. In 2009, Feroce entered his first bodybuilding competition in Pittsburgh and won. After earning his IFBB pro card, he moved to Hollywood and trained with Hany Rambod for 2 years. Feroce has been sponsored by MuscleTech, Isolator Fitness and Muscular Development magazine. Steroid use inflicted its toll and forced him to stop competing in 2012. Feroce returned to competitive bodybuilding briefly in 2016 and 2017 before announcing his retirement. Feroce owns the brand All American Roughneck and the supplement line Axe & Sledge. He owns a nutrition store and a gymnastics gym in PA. He also hosts a podcast with Bobby Dautrich. His Feroce Iron Academy is a subscription website for bodybuilders. Feroce has a son with gymnastics coach Hanna Nicole and 2 children from a previous marriage. Feroce has hundreds of thousands of followers on social media. He is 5 feet, 5 inches tall and weighs about 202 lbs. in-season and 240 off-season.
Seth Feroce‘s Diet
As with all pros, diet is an essential component of a successful career. Feroce has tried out numerous diets and training regimens over his career, but he mostly sticks with a lot of bodybuilding classics including egg whites, chicken, rice, and whey protein. He refuels every few hours and weighs and measures his food. He supplements with protein, aminos, and carbs and is outspoken against steroid use. He stays hydrated with plenty of water.
- Low Fat 20% 20%
- Medium Carb 30% 30%
- High Protein 50% 50%
Feroce eats about 6 meals per day. He starts off with 2 cups of egg whites and 3 whole eggs for flavor, a cup of oatmeal and a few strawberries.
Feroce’s diet consists of simple combinations of meat, rice, and veggies. He has steak once a day and chicken twice.
Feroce has 2 protein shakes per day: whey protein with 2 bananas after a workout and 2 scoops of casein with peanut butter and frozen fruit before bed.
In 2019, Feroce tried the ketogenic diet (high fat, medium protein, low carb) but found it difficult because he was used to the pump provided by carbs. He says it’s important to do what works best for your body, not someone else’s.

I’m a little bit of a ketchup fiend. I don’t use it too much, just enough for taste and enjoyment out of plain chicken and plain rice.

Everything from Melinda’s is pretty good.
