I am 11 weeks out from my first show and have been contest dieting for the past 5 weeks...
Here is a basic day for me:
6:00 a.m. 2 egg whites + 1 whole egg, 1c low carb milk, 1 pc whole wheat toast
9:00 a.m. (post workout #1) Protein shake (either Shake-a-Whey or protein smoothie made at the gym)
12:00 p.m. 6 oz chicken, salad (no dressing or red wine vinegar), 1/2 c oatmeal
3:00 p.m. 4 oz chicken, salad, Shake-a-Whey
7:00 (post workout #2) Protein Shake
8:30 p.m. 4 oz chicken, salad (no dressing or red wine vinegar), Shake-a-whey
I also take a multi-vitamin in the morning, 2 vitamin E and a fat burner twice a day.
This past week I was able to start doing cardio, so I do cardio in the morning and then lift at night. I do a different body part each night, and then abs everyday and calves every other day.
Currently I'm at 5'5 and 146 lbs. The numbers are very frustrating to me, but it was weird to change from doing cardio twice daily and lifting to NO CARDIO and lifting twice daily. I gained weight very quickly....just have to remind myself that it's muscle weight too!
Anyone have any suggestions for protein shakes that are good post workout? The ones that I have made at the gym just have so many calories in them, I feel like they take up most of my daily caloric intake in no time!
