I could always make aioli (olive oil mayonnaise) or use sesame oil (I respond well to sesame) but the process is so tedious!
    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.


  2. 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:

    Outside competition prep I'm with you there! Maybe I'm just sticking with an older mentality but dietary choices do matter coming to show time - until someone enlightens me otherwise and eases my mind about the little things.

  6. 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.

    I totally agree, but I will never be in contest prep :wink:

    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.

  21. Sorry i've Been gone for a few days.. No mayo man, do olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I'd cut the whey out asap too it will help you lean out, stick to whole foods, especially this close to the show

    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.

  26. 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&%*!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. Inform them that it is an Emergency that you leave and NOT stay anywhere overnight except for home!!

    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??

  28. 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

  30. 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.
