High Fat Diet and Figure Competition Training – High Fat, No Deprivation!

IMG_3631

Truth of the day: Do not fear fat. It’ll get you shredded. 😉

I’m on a mission to break the molds, nay the nay-sayers, and shred the f**k out of my body. Oh, and do a figure competition!

My recipe for unconventional figure competition diet prep:

  • High Fat
  • Moderate Protein
  • Low Carb
  • Feel Nourished

I’m doing my best to follow my macros pretty closely. 

Protein: 40%

Fat: 40%

Carbs: 20%

While some days are closer to 30% protein, 50% fat, 20% carbs, others will be higher carb with 40%. Those higher carb days I’ll drop fat but keep protein high. MyMacros+ app is helping keep my macros in check and my calories collected each day. It’s also a great reality check for how high in calories and fat peanut butter really is. ;P

So, what am I consuming?

In my mouth goes a TON of vegetables, leafy greens, proteins and high quality fats.

Others

This foods list might seem small to some, maybe even lacking variety, but I’m eating so much variety compared to my last prep. I feel satiated and nourished. In between meals I’m not ravished and I never feel “hangry.” Blood sugar levels are stable, energy levels are stable, gym energy is on fire. 🙂

Meal prep has been made so much easier using prep containers that I’ve now fallen in love with. They’re cheap, microwavable and reusable, and dishwasher safe. $10 gets you 7 LIFT containers. Great deal for what these are. 🙂

So far so good on week three and still going strong.

Of course, I’m drinking a lot of water, teas, bubbly water, and coffee. Sadly, I am trading in my 3x/week almond milk latte for black coffee but luckily I love black coffee more than almost anything else in the world.
