Here is the challenge I am giving myself: Exactly 6 weeks until my fitness contest. I have been trying to turn entirely to whole foods for a while now. I find that when I cut out my powders and my tofu I feel better and train better. However, I have not been able to stick to it. So here it is: 6 weeks, whole foods only. No powders, no tofus, no fake foods. Only whole foods, lentils, nuts, fruits, veggies, grains. I want to see what happens when I actually stick to it for a period of time. I also want to see if I can compete on that food plan. Today is day one, so far: bananas, apple, lentils, pumpkin, broccoli. Wish me luck!
How did it go with the whole-food-challenge? Did you find it hard to stick to it? I'm really curious to hear what your experiences where, expecially during contest prep. I don't think I could ever go without my protein powders or a little tofu/tempeh
Good luck with the last stretch before your competition!
