Precontest carb manipulation & supplementation. I need advice

  1. Precontest carb manipulation & supplementation. I need advice


    Just started my precontest diet this week and have some questions regarding carb intake. Right now I'm 12 weeks out & am taking in around 125 carbs per day. Several online articles suggest having a high carb meal every 4th or 5th day to "stoke" the metabolism & slow muscle loss. Has anyone tried this? If so, what should that meal consist of? ANY ADVICE WOULD BE APPRECIATED! I'm a first time competitor & really have no one to assist me with prep. I've been trying to use online articles but they vary so much.


    FYI: I'm 5'8 and about 205 now with 10-12% BF. My diet is about 2200 calories, 300 grams of protein & 125 carbs. (started my diet on Monday & actually am up a few pounds)

    I'm coming off a 2 week M-1T cycle (taking Nolva). My only other supplementation is creatine, Protein powder & a multi-vitamin. I have the materials for 1-testosterone & 4Hydroxy-test lotion (would this be OK to use in another few weeks? ...or should I lay off the PHs for longer than 3 weeks? Any "supplement" recommendations? My contest is NPC & not a tested event.

    Yes its defiently helpful. Carbs should consist of simple carbs or starchy carbs with fat kept to a minimum.
