First time posting so pls go easy ;-)
Have been lifting for probably over 30 years and finally decided to take the plunge into my first comp which is due in Oct.
A long way of i agree but im allowing for any problems i run into which has happened only 5 weeks in .
I have gone down to 6%-8% many times but hoping to hit around 5 this time which is one of the reasons for a long run in.
My usual experiences with my diet are,first 5 weeks ,cut out the Junk then slowly crank it up from there.
This year i basically gave myself 2 weeks cutting out the junk and on my 5th week now and i havent dropped a single pound !!!!
It doesnt make any sense i usually shift at least 7-10lb in my first few weeks just cutting out the Junk ?
The only difference this year from any other year is jumping in very early and Quitting drinking for the duration of the cutting, up until post comp.
Just so frustrating,i cranked up my cardio last week and was just completely burnt out at the end of the week, i mean real bad exhaustion,wondering whether i have a Adrenal problem as i had Hypothyroidism in the past.
Any advice or comment would be really appreciated as :-)
