No carb days are killin me......in 10 days I have to eat straight chicken, cut all the sodium sources.......I'll be on here a lot!!!!!
I'm with you that no carb days are brutal to get through. Do you think maybe having a few healthy carbs first thing after you finish your morning cardio (on the empty stomach) might actually be beneficial? Anybody else care to comment on that?
I realize you are training for a competition, but I'm just concered about that few of carbs in your system for so long. A friend of mine that was training for a competition went crazy with no carbs 5 days a week, 3 weeks out from her comp. She was suntanning at 2 different places and taking diueretics. She ended up waking up in a hospital bed 1 week out. It seems that walking on her way to one of her tanning appointments, she just completely colapsed and was out for aprox. a half hour before a pedestrian finally called an ambulance. She had to drop out of her comp. The next comp she trained in, she just had her healthy carbs early in the morning and cut them out throughout the day. That way she wasn't killin' herself, but she was restricting them enough to still cut the fat and water she wanted.
You know your body better than I do, I'm just watchin' out for a fellow builder's health.
Take care :D
The only thing I didn't see on your list (like Taurus pointed out) is EFA's. Something like Flax or Fish oils, will help you out trememdously. One thing is with a lower carb to no carb diet, is that hair can start to dry out and fall out! You can start having the same problems with your skin, as it will dry out and start flaking.
Taking 2 caps of Fish/flax with your Protein meals making them P + F meals will help get the metabolism kicking again as well.
If you are feeling a little lethargic raise your carbs on weight training workout days, and keep the aerobic days very low to zero carbs like you've been doing. Just add in the EFA's and you will notice a difference!
I used to compete in BB shows a little over 10years ago and the only thing that has changed a little bit, is the nutritional aspect of contest preperation.
The way that you are doing it is the same as I did back in the day! It's not bad at all, it's just there are more less painless ways to reach your goal without having to suffer.
I'm getting in some pretty good shape right now and depending on how I look a month from now, I may dust off the posing trunks and enter a BB show! So, I feel your pain with this diet, as I'm dieting down too! Take care and good luck!
Are you getting pre and post workout shakes?

I thought she said she takes fatty acids, what else could it be other than EFA's?? I doubt someone will chug down a cup of oil. :D
Yes, my "fatty acids" are EFA's.....Haha, haven't gotten the lingo yet....
I have already been thinking bout next competiion and how I'll do differentely. Consistency is key I know, so I figured, finish strong, take it as a growing experience...Right? Well, I did the whole eat Very clean, no carb restricting, but all good low GI carbs, none after 6 (unless post workout) and moderated cardio. Fat just melted off me then,........Definetely believe that the whole 2 days no carbs deal was too dramatic, b/c then I had to work harder cardio wise and my bod still wasn't lettin go of fat. BF loss went down fast b/c of strictness. Well, 3 weeks left, well see how it goes.
I would just stick to the isopure and drop the 100% whey because it's concentrate. Whey isolate has less impurities like fat, lactose, ect. It doesn't matter that much, but every little detail will help. ;)
I like the Isopure way more anyways!
I was using what was left of the Optimum Whey... That's gone Thank Goodness!
I should get the oil then, instead? I really don't care bout taste or anything....I put the tbsp of glutamine right in my mouth and I chew multi's.... Can't be much worse..... I have 2.5 weeks left pre-contest.
Thanks for the tips.....totally cool!
Or she can just buy the fish oil powder from bulk and use that, its cheaper than buying the oil in a bottle. :D Talking about cost effectiveness, saving 2 or 3 dollars per week doesnt do much for me, considering that I make more money than u Taurus :D
