    Diet is very similar to mine thanks for posting. Do you cycle carbs or do you always keep them pretty low?

    Never heard of eating a just carb meal during contest prep, did I read that correct?

    i'm sooo far out from contest prep that i havent even dropped carbs, and i believe i need them and so does my coach for the hour cardio then weight training afterwards. He always tells me wait til you have no carbs and you try to do this workout, and your going to hate life. speaking of distilled water ill start that as well but not until 4 weeks out or so. remember this contest is in 16 weeks in first week of november. I got tough mudder coming up in September for my fellow soldiers but yeah i cheat. I believe i'm aloud. But when it comes 10 to 8 weeks out is grim time. Trust me i'm shedding fat very fast. Especially for the amount i didnt even knew i had. I feel like im actaull smaller i hate it. My arms feel smaller my legs do too. Its almost like i always want to be bulky but i get complements saying i look bigger. Thats my biggest mental blockage. Please give your insight and your recommendations cause i'm open ears. Everybody's body works different. I would like to hear why you dont think its a good idea to eat only carbs before a workout

    Well for starters the mass amount of insulin that's released. High insulin levels during your workout blunt fat burning. Unless its a CKD/TKD and your diet is clearly not that. Protein and fat help lower the glycemic load and better use those carbs. You're not a marathon runner, you're trying to be a bodybuilder or physique competitor.

    Judging from pictures, you're over 17% bodyfat. You're going to want to hit crunch time well before 8 weeks also. I haven't cheated since 15 weeks out (2 weeks out currently) and I sit at 182, started 226. carbs have never been higher than 200 the entire prep. No reason to set weight goals when appearance is all that matters.

    Alright so its been a rough month but im back on schedule. Im sitting at rougly 201 lbs, huge set back but back on track, probably going to miss this competition. But my physical well being is more important. Now I need to just focus on dropping the fat and maintaining muscle. Long story short. I just recebtly got out of the military so job secuirty plus wife issues have taken a toll on my physical well being and mental. Thank you all for the great advice but Im not going to make a fool of my self walking onto a stage unprepared. Ill post pictures tomorrow.

    Sorry about the bad times. But your right it will make you stronger.

    I compete physique April of 2013. My goal is 210-212 at 5%. I am 215 at 10% current. Want 3 more lbs of lean muscle , little wider Lats and back.

    I will be keeping my eye out on your log. Like the diet except for white rice pre workout with no protein source. But there a 1000 ways to reach a goal. And as long as you respond is all that matters.
