    Talking Finally decided i want to compete, but no idea where to start with the diet?!?!

    Ok so i have been thinking about competing for a while but never really had the guts or desire to.... untill now. I have recently left the fitness industry to take another career path, joined the gym 5 mins from home and received 3 free p.t session. It was on my first session when he asked me have i ever considered it? i said not really, I have thought about it even more so in the last 4 weeks and now have decided that i would love to, only prob is I have no idea where to start with my diet! my training regime is working a gem! how ever not to sure on the amout of calories i should be consuming per day, how much per week to cut down leading closer into the comp time. havent picked a date to compete yet.
    I train 4 days a week lifting, not to much cardio atm.

    If anyone could help me out, greatly greatly appreciated!!
    Cheers

    my best advice is to hire kimm4
    i second what wp said.

    mausi79 and i were separated at birth.

    i don't believe in iifym (for physique purposes, yes, but for health and wellness, no), but i do believe you should seriously love every single thing you eat.

    lifetime reps to el, wp, kim, amanda and rowyn

    First thing you can do is post photos, current routine (if any) and lifting and fitness experience.

    I would definitely look into hiring a coach/nutritionalist for your show, ESPECIALLY if this is your first.
    I am five weeks out from my first show date, and I can tell you....this is is NO walk in the park.

    Best o' luck!
    EAT MY DUST!!
