Red face New & Need Help

So after about a year of being in and out of the gym I've finally decided to get serious and take my goals to a whole other level. A couple of the trainers in my gym really motivated me to train for a Figure competition (yes I'm female) for Sept. 29th of 07' and I'm off to a great start but I need some help with the whole diet thing.... This is currently what my EXACT schedule of eating is....mmmmm.....LOL...

Input is most appreciated

*wake-up at 5:00a.m. and usually just drink water on the way to the gym for AM cardio unless I'm having major stomach cramps and then I'll eat a banana

*AM cardio workout is from 6:00-6:30a.m.

7:00a.m. Protein shake (Isopure) w/ skim milk
Rice cake

9:00a.m. Oatmeal
Green tea (one or two cups) black

11:00a.m. Protein shake w/ skim milk

1:00p.m. Tuna w/ crackers (they come in this travel pack)
V8 (low sodium)

4:00p.m. *Pre-weights workout
Low-fat yogurt smoothie
Rice cake

*Post-weights workout
Protein shake w/ only water

7:00/8:00p.m. Chicken
Broccoli

10:00p.m. Protein shake w/ only water

Okay, so as you can see my diet is BORING, which I'm partially okay with because I've finally mentally gotten to the point where food is fuel, bottom line. At the same time I want to vary things up and make sure that I'm getting what I'm supposed to. Should I add fruits? What are your thoughts on that because being a simple carb I'm really trying to keep that limited.....

My Stats/Goals are as follows:

Current weight: 155

Goal weight: Don't really care, just want a lot of cut and build but probably around 135/140

Measurements/Basic:

Chest: 39 1/2
Waist: 32 1/2
Hips: 39

Thanks for your help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Erin

I dont really know what females, yours specifically, calorie/macros goals are. But one thing i did notice is that you call fruits simple carbs. They arent looked at like that anymore. They go by a GI rating. Look at the sticky's for more info on that.

your right food is fuel...you are going to eat alot more and alot different if you want to step on stage and compete. More protein for one, drop the shakes...and no fruit, way to much sugar.

1/3 cup cooked rice or 2.5 oz potato or 1/2 cup yam 76
3 oz chicken breast or 4 oz tuna 147
1/2 mixed vegs or 1/4 cup corn or 1/3 peas 40

1/3 cup rice or 2.5 oz potato or 1/2 cup yam 76
3 oz chicken or 4 oz tuna 147
4 oz carrot or 5 oz broccoli or 5 oz cauliflower 40

The following items are removed from your diet 14 – 10 days before your show:


- All spices should be gone at this point. You may still use cinnamon and pepper.

-Tuna and eggs should be replaced with fresh chicken breast

-Tomato and celery

-Aspartame products: gum, pop, sweetners, Crystal Light

-Tap water should be replaced with distilled water or if you are having
muscle cramping problems, a sodium free spring water.

-Cook all your vegetables in distilled
-Coffee or tea should be made with distilled
-Brush your teeth using distilled water

-Distilled water will replace toothpaste on Friday and Saturday

nobody said this was the healthiest sport to be in ( competitive bodybuilding/figure). It is taken to the extreme with the last few days.
Think also no water for atleast 24hrs prior. ( figure , they might not have to do this )

I'm sure other people have knowledge in this...
