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!

Here is what happened, I went about 2 weeks on whole foods only. I really liked it but I put on weight and I could not afford to do that during contest prep. I found it weird because my cals were low. I wish it worked but I need to be lean and the whole foods don't work at all for that. In fact, right now I live on protein powder and veggies. It is not my first choice but the other way just did not work for me. Right now I am only 2 lbs out from my goal so I will probably put some more whole foods in soon but I have to be careful.

Getting ready for figure comp either 10/20 or 11/3. Still deciding. About a month ago really cut back on my protein powder intake. Really leaned out as a result. Down about 10 lbs. However, I am weaker and having more muscle pain with slower recovery. Tough balance and trying to decide how much of the stuff I really need. Right now doing 2 scoops pre-workout with 1 scoop BCAA. It gets me through my workout but that is all for the day except 1/2 c of lentils. Then fruit/veggies and one cup of oatmeal. One Tbl of olive oil at dinner. Going to experiment and see what works.

My powder is a mix of gemma/rice/hemp/chia. I use either Lifetime's Life's Basic Plant Protein or True Protein's vegan optimizer.
