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.
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.
- chicken breast
- cod (or other white fish)
- chicken thighs
- ground beef
- mixed greens, leafy greens
- yellow squash
- cherry tomatoes, tomatoes
- peanut butter
- olive oil
- coconut oil
- bananas (very minimally)
- sweet potatoes (very minimally)
- kombucha (hell, yes)
- Pre-workout: Evogen Carnigen in Raspberry Lemonade
- Post-workout: Evogen Cell K.E.M. in Fruit Punch
- coffee (always, always coffee!)
- Sun Warrior Classic Plus Protein Powder
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.
