Prepping for a Bikini Competition

#1 Postby MissCasanave » Wed Jan 25, 2012 12:35 pm

I am interested in doing a bikini competition and fitness modeling. I have never done either before and I am really concerned about dieting since I am vegan. There is a show that I want to do that is a little over 3 months away which means I really need to get a plan together quick. Can someone offer me some tips? What a sample competition diet looks like? I also don't eat a lot of soy products which makes things extra tricky.

Great to hear from you! I wasn't sure how to respond to e-mail, since it didn't include your address. Here are general suggestions:

Eat 5-6 small meals per day
Limit your carbs when you get close to a shoot or comp
Drink 1 - 1.5 gallons of purified water per day
Supplement to fill in nutrition gaps
Reduce sodium to less than 150 mg/serving

Some sample soy-free, high-protein vegan meals:

Explore Asian black bean or mung bean pasta
Vegan supplement bars and shakes
Nut butter on Ezekiel bread
Salad with beans, hummus, and raw coconut vinegar
Ezekiel tortillas with vegan black beans or refried beans
Lentil soup or vegan chili
Kale salad with lentil pate

Best of luck to you! Let me know how it goes.
