I was re-reading some fitness mags this morning at the gym and found the following in a woman's fitness mag:

Pre-Competition Plan from a Figure Competitor
1. 1/3 C oatmeal and 6 egg whites
2. 1/3 C brown rice and 4oz chicken breast
3. 5oz lean groundturkey and 1 C green veggies
4. 6oz white fish and 1 C green veggies
5. 4oz chicken breast and 1 C green veggies
6. 8 egg whites and 1 C green veggies

Pre-Competition Plan for a Fitness Competitor
1. 6 egg whites
2. 1 serving cream of rice and 4oz chicken breast
3. 1/4 C oatmeal and 4oz chicken breast
4. 3oz Tuna and 1 can asparagus spears
5. 6oz orange roughy
6. 3oz Tuna and 10 asparagus spears
7. 6oz orange roughy


(Man oh MAN that's not much food...)

The other one I saw was In-Season versus Off-Season (sponsored by Nitro-Tech_

In-Season (add during off-season)
1. 6 egg whites and 1/2 C oatmeal (add 1 slice whole wheat toast)
2. 3/4 C low-fat yogurt and a handfull of almonds (add 1 medium green apple)
3. Tuna salad with mixed greens (add 1 C brown rice)
4. Nitro-Tech Carb Control Bar (Meso-Tech bar)
5. Nitro-Tech "Delicious Vanilla" shake (add 1 C orange juice)
6. Chicken breast and steamed vegies (add 1 medium yam)

I'm sure someone will offer something better. Thought I'd share as I'd just been reading about this today!

Nice! Thanks so much for the examples. You've definitely given me something to start with!:big_smile:
Wow! I knew a good competition diet wouldn't have many starchy carbs but oooh... Anyone know how long it will take for me to get past craving them once I start a diet like this? :surprised:

paulab - i bumped a post called 'some diets for example' look for it - it is some more fitness/figure competitors diets on and off season.

If you fill up on complex carbs , high volume/low calorie, like broccoli, salad, etc, you shouldn't crave too badly. You can still have oatsmeal in the morning.

Don't cut your calories too drastically - just by 100 or so. Or, depending on what your macro-nutrient ratio has been, you could just manipulate your ratios without cutting calories right away.

Do you have a competition date?

I know of a good fitness competitor diet at www.yourmealplan.com . There is a girl on the site with her success story of becoming a fitness competitor.:)
