    Protein pre contest diet


    I am currently on a 1800 calorie, low carb diet including cod, tilapia and greens (this month). My protein is right around 160-170 grams per day. I am 172lbs trying to get to 164 by April for a show. Do you think it would effect me much if I took a extra protein shake a day to curve appetite? Thank you for the advice!

    I don't think a shake is going to help your appetite much, and at that low of calories whole food should be all you need.

    I would highly recommend an increase in calories as well.
