Any bikini competitors out there? I need diet advice.

#1 Postby voodie girl » Sun Sep 16, 2012 4:13 pm

Hey,

I'm about 9 weeks out from my first competition in vegas (FAP), and I'm contemplating a "practice" show in so cal in late october just to get my feet wet.

Right now I'm trying to build muscle, but I'm having a heck of a time doing so (it's my body type more than anything else). My coach thinks I should be focusing on building muscle still, but I"m more concerned about body fat loss.

She is really pushing 6 small meals a day, with protein at every meal. Here's what a day looks like for me.

meal 1 - 3 egg whites, 2 ounces tempeh, 1/2 c sauted mushrooms
meal 2 - protein shake (just straight water) + 2 cups veggie soup
meal 3 - 1.5 cups veggie soup + 3 ounces tempeh
meal 4 - apple and peanut butter yum + protien drink (just with water)
meal 5 - 3 ounces tofu + green salad 2 c
meal 6 - protein powder + water

Am I eating too much here?

This is what I look like now, and again, I might be 5 weeks out from my first show if I decide to compete in SoCal.

Any thoughts on diet adjustments or progress? I really don't know what to expect.

Stop eating animal products


Here is an example of the link to your picture that works, hope this helps:

Thanks for your response! I'm using Cathy Savage fitness right now, but if I do this again, I'll definitely work with a coach that can support a vegan diet. I clearly need a lot of guidance in this direction!
