Hi there -- going for my 4th show & need to be sure I don't turn into a water bag day of show from cutting too much water, eating too many carbs, too soon, etc. I've read lots your posts here and have heard some great advice, wondering if you could give me your thoughts...
Relevant info -- I'm a female natural competitor, 5'10", 145 lbs., and although I win my shows (to date, 3) I always seem to hold a little too much water in the legs. This time round I'm going for overalls and it's just this issue I'm worried about.
Just wondering if more experienced out there have some exact ratios/suggestions for me, especially those who are in the same boat as me:
1. carb gram day by day, starting Wednesday before
2. cutting water -- what's your magic formula (understanding it's different for everyone)
I am more concerned about coming on stage tight and hard, then full, if it means not holding water. Would it be best just to carb up the night before and cut water the Friday?
Your experience is much appreciated -- thanks!
