For today:
3.5 mile run on an empty stomach. This is never a good idea for me as it depletes me too much.

6am: apple, 1c pumpkin, broccoli, tofu
9:00 1/4c blueberries, tofu, 1c pumpkin, broccoli, flax oil
12 apple, 1c pumpkin, tofu, flax oil, green beans, mushrooms
2:30 blueberries, 1/2 pumpkin, tofu, broccoli, mushrooms
5:00 red pepper, tofu, 3c pumpkin, mushroom, green beans, flax oil, 1/c blueberries

Ate more pumpkin then I planned at dinner but I feel alot better than I have been feeling as a result. I have been pretty depleted the last 3 days on this diet.

really struggled with food yesterday. Overate yesterday. Really trying to get that on track. That is my real struggle. Very sore from training today. I think it is because this is the first week of new training. Love being sore.

Can you say more about your show? Does it require a loss of body fat? Or what are the requirements? Im prepping for a BB show June 9, and thanks to my coach I'm just getting food under control! I did a very unclean bulk and it was easy to overeat on vegan junk food, but its impossible on healthy food, if i didnt know i had to hit certain macros, id be undereating on this diet. Your diet looks really healthy!

jungle:
I will be doing a fitness show in los angeles. Yes, I want to lose more bodyfat. My goal is to always have a healthy and clean diet. I do not bulk because I never need extra size for fitness. I put on size easily and my issue is always not lean enough. The judges look for a lean and muscular physique but no striations. I always need to keep my weight down to do fitness moves. I completely understand the vegan junk food thing. I tend to overeat but I only overeat the good stuff.

I stepped on the scale for the first time in weeks. 151, which is ok for now. Show 12 1/2 weeks out so it puts me at about one lb. a week as a goal to make it to 138 lbs. by showtime. My goal is to maintain a nice steady and slow weight loss so I can lose bodyfat. Today is cardio only day. I am going to hit up a 3mile run today. Legs and back sore from the last 2 days of lifting so this is a welcomed day.

Do you cycle your calories up and down, or do you just keep a steady decrease in calories?

I try to keep as steady as possible. I just am not always as good at it as I would like. Some days I just eat more than other days. My goal is to stay steady and balanced.
