Is Alberto Nunez a Natural Bodybuilder?

Alberto Nunez is a popular natural bodybuilder known for his insane conditioning and online videos. He looks super dry and ultra-shredded on contest days. However, can you really achieve a similar muscular development naturally? Can you do it without drugs? Let’s find out.

How big is Alberto Nunez?

According to the information available online, Alberto Nunez is 5’9″ – 175cm and weighs 160lbs-72.7kg. This is his contest weight and suggests a super low body fat. If this is really the case, Alberto Nunez fits perfectly into the guide for natural bodybuilders. He is even a few pounds under the line. Therefore, as far as mass is concerned, a very gifted person who trains hard and eats right can acquire a similar size naturally.

Can you be as dry as Alberto Nunez naturally?

While the size of Alberto Nunez can be achieved naturally by genetic freaks, his conditioning is extreme and deserve an analysis too. Most people have never seen a person that dry, vascular and shredded in real life.


I am sorry, but most naturals will never have the dryness presented in the photo below. It’s just not possible. The body does not want to enter this condition naturally. Alberto Nunez is most likely using diuretics to lose water before contests.

Diuretics are potentially more dangerous than steroids since they cause serious dehydration. Bodybuilders have died as a result of organ failure caused by diuretics. However, since the muscle constructors want to look as shredded as possible, they continue to take diuretics prior to competitions because water hurts your definition.

Can you be as vascular as Alberto Nunez naturally?

Technically yes, but Nunez’ 3D deltoids are the more interesting detail. Most naturals can’t get their shoulders to look as full and as 3D.

Does Alberto Nunez have the Photoshop look?

In some photos, like the one above, Alberto Nunez definitely has the Photoshop look. He is reasonably thick, grainy and full in “dry mode”. That combination creates an out of this world look.

Alberto Nunez is known for his ridiculous dietary approach

Alberto Nunez consumes between 300-400 grams of carbs a day when dieting and 500-600 grams on re-feed days.

This is a very controversial topic, but regardless of what people say, here are the facts:

1.High fat/low carb/high protein diets have been the choice of many natural bodybuilders because that’s one of the fastest ways to lose fat. Pure high carb diets often cause problems when dieting down to the single digits.

Ultimately, very few people can get away with high carb diets when the goal is to get ultra-shredded.

2.IFBB pros often rely on high carb/low fat diets mainly because they can get away with it thanks to the drugs and fat burners in their systems.

In short, naturally maintaining Alberto Nunez’s conditioning on a high carb diet seems a little too optimistic.

To summarize: The size of Alberto Nunez may become a reality naturally, but the overall look is a little too much to accept. Most people won’t look like that naturally ever regardless of diets and training.
