I trust the hard work is paying off and you are seeing some great benefits from the workouts I have been posting!
I have been super busy with my preparation and run up to bodypower which is happening this weekend. Like I have said in previous posts I am competing in the POTW live show.
As I am in the run up to this I thought I'd share my pre contest diet with you all.
For the last 2 weeks I have been monitoring my carbohydrate intake. All of my food is clean and healthy but in order to have the full, shredded look, manipulating carbs is key. Therefore I have really watched my carb intake. I performed a carb cycle during the first week. This meant over the course of 7 days I had high, low and no carbs days. I did this to prepare myself for the 'no carb day' that I would be having the following week over 3 days.
Once into the final week for the first 2 days I limited my carb intake to around 50g carbs. My next 3 days are no carb days. My nutrients came from protein and fat sources. Such as meats, veg, protein shakes, supplements and nuts/oils/fish. After the 3 days of no carbs it's then time to re fuel. Carbs are introduced back into my diet. These carbohydrates are a mixture of quick release and slow release.
The carbohydrate manipulation is the key. But I also modified my sodium intake, my water intake and my protein intake so that I look great for stage on the weekend.
