    They sell olive oil Mayo in a lot of places. I've never tried omega 3 Mayo but would assume it to be unnecessary considering the amount of fish you're eating.

    True. To me it doesn't matter where your fats come from but a quota should be met on the omegas while keeping AA down. Well, I gotta go shopping. I got home and just sank into my couch - I'm trying to find the drive to get on the bike. The more I think about it, the more I think I should just give myself the day off.

    Hey Leonidas... I might be moving back to NJ. I'll know on Monday.

    Well I don't necessarily care where any of my macros come from as long as I meet them :wink:

    It's the fine tuning of the machine for maximum performance. I hate comparing myself to a machine but its a good analogy. Thanks.

    DW - any thoughts on the Smart Balance Omega Mayo?

    I agree that the small things do matter at this stage. You have put so much into this that now is not the time to tinker around too much. Go with tried and true staples.

    2 weeks out right?

    I'd just go with extra virgin olive oil and pepper. Winning is not about taste, it's about looking your best, know what I mean? Macadamia Oil is another option.

    When your show is over you can eat anything you want man. Keep your eye on the prize brotha

    It was really just an educated guess based on the fact that you flood all of our mailboxes with your nudez. So much that Vitruvian told me we might be coming out with a new test booster called JD Nudez.....

    Now look you're going to get OS 'turned on' talking about my nudez and a new test booster and just completely screw up his mental stage of this prep (like it isn't already ) so enough with product and nudez talk already!!

    Yup! I mean, uh....
    Yeah, usually at this point I have NO libido. Not feeling ravenous by any means but its better than times past. I just wished I had the energy to act on it... or the ability to go out go find some Halloween candy, ya dig? The social woes of contest prep.

    Light weight is below 176? Yikes that a big light weight. Well, bantam for this show is <150.

    I'll stick with sesame oil then. Food is meant for fuel not for taste. It was an idea.

    Novice only has 3 divisions (normally) light, light heavy & heavy. <176, 176 1-2-198, >198 1/2 respectively.

    Open division is a whole other ball game my friend.

    Second the whey. Whole foods, no sweeteners, still have some additional sodium in but not a lot. Cutting eggs soon.

    Balsamic? I use apple cider vinegar. Bragg's Raw Unfiltered.

    Well goddamn...

    As soon as I walk into work this morning they tell me the hospital is on State of Ermergency and I could be stuck here till Tuesday. I'm not prepared for this. They can provide sleeping arrangements, hooray. They're supposed to provide food - well, that's gonna be hit or miss. I've worked with the RD's here who design the meal planning and butt heads but at least they do provide somewhat "clean" options. So much for my Sunday/Monday workouts and posing prep. Now how do I eat?

    F&%*!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Seriously, since you have worked w/ the RD'sin the past, could you go to them, explain the situation and see if they would help you out??

    Nah I worked it out. Mid afternoon I'm gonna run back to my place and grab more food and gear before the subways shut down. I'm one of the few I work with who actually live in the city. I just hope I don't have to work overnight - water weight and cortisol galore.

    Eat under maintenance, mild keto... fish, oils, nuts, cruciferous and leafy vegetables... we can work this out. Anyway, I could use the overtime pay

    At least practice your posing for 30-45 minutes. That will provide some cardio and muscle stimulation. I've done that for past preps when my scheduled workouts suddenly weren't an option.

    I wonder if physical therapy would let me use some of their equipment. A light workout is better than no workout.

    Completely forgot about the idea of walking down the street to a supermarket to get food. Place wasnt chaotic but it wasy real busy. Bought some prepackagaed tuna and mackerel, macadamia nut oil, salad greens and went on my way. Picked up an extra days worth. But food (like everything else) in Manhattan is sooooo expensive!

    I made the dumb mistake of going into healthcare which is a 24/7 industry. Trying to change fields not gonna hide it. I told them no. They get it, they see me daily and have watched me go through it in the past so have an idea of what's going on. Someone said "Oh you're young you can handle it" and someone else backed me up because she knows the deal.

    As for the soda law: it was 50/50 on opinions at first. A lot of people, self included, believed its a violation of freedom like "Who are you to tell me what I can drink?" Which is true. But overtime people started supporting it because its pretty clear we have a big issue but the law was written sloppy. The thing is we have such a huge variety of people views are far and wide. People who don't like it are generally overweight already, lower income, less health conscious *cough cough Bronx cough BedStuy*. People who do support it are sick of paying their health care costs. It's too bad they couldn't set it up like they did with cigarettes taxed so high its $13/pack: you can smoke all you want but you'll pay a premium. Smokers in NYC are at an all time low. Not a lot of people smoke.

Someone said "Oh you're young you can handle it" and someone else backed me up because she knows the deal.As for the soda law: it was 50/50 on opinions at first. A lot of people, self included, believed its a violation of freedom like "Who are you to tell me what I can drink?" Which is true. But overtime people started supporting it because its pretty clear we have a big issue but the law was written sloppy. The thing is we have such a huge variety of people views are far and wide. People who don't like it are generally overweight already, lower income, less health conscious *cough cough Bronx cough BedStuy*. People who do support it are sick of paying their health care costs. It's too bad they couldn't set it up like they did with cigarettes taxed so high its $13/pack: you can smoke all you want but you'll pay a premium. Smokers in NYC are at an all time low. Not a lot of people smoke.
    You can stay in Healthcare, just do something like me and go into Physcial Therapy. Monday-Friday days. jdg76Team APPNUT
