Contest prep food can still be damn good:)

When I was thinking about doing a bodybuilding show, I would always think about eating bland foods for weeks and weeks. I was definitely wrong.. I'm gonna show you guys what I ate today. One thing I've learned is that as long as foods fit into my macro nutrient goals, they are OKAY TO EAT!! Sunday is an off day for me, and I like to have a little fun so here's my meals:

Meal 1
OATMEAL,EGGS AND A POP TART
I love having oatmeal and eggs for breakfast. Gives your body tons of nutrients to start the day. Sundays I throw in a pop tart too, because I like them. :)
HOW I MADE IT
I put cinnamon and splenda in my oatmeal, and pepper on my scrambled eggs. The poptart is raspberry.



 Meal 2
FRUIT SMOOTHIE
One of my all time fav. meals is fruit smoothies! In this one I have Vanilla flavoured soy milk, egg whites, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, bananas, and strawberry whey. When your bulking you can add oatmeal too, you can't even taste it and it shoots your carbs up nice and high:)
HOW I MADE IT
Blender, duh.




Meal 3
CHICKEN, POTATO AND BROCCOLI
This meal is, quite literally, the meat and potatoes of my diet. Its a mega healthy meal, and I love the taste of it. Broccoli helps me digest all my food!! It doesn't matter that I'm eating white potatoes(red actually), because I'm eating it with chicken and broccoli, it will slow the digestion down
HOW I MADE IT
Chicken was cooked in a pan on the stove, med-low for 30 minutes. It has sweet chilli pepper, seasoning salt, and cracked pepper. The potatoes were skinned, and boiled, and had seasoning salt added. Broccoli was just washed an uncooked. I cook in bulk, so when I microwave my meal the broccoli gets slightly steamed. I also add pepper to the whole meal before I eat it





Meal 4
FRENCH TOAST, EGG WHITES, PROTEIN SHAKE
French toast is pretty much the best thing in the world. When I found out I could eat it during my contest prep, I had a big goofy grin on my face for like an hour :D.
HOW I MADE IT
French toast is almond milk, egg whites, and vanilla extract mixed up. I dip whole wheat bread into it, throw it on a pan that is heated up to medium. After about 5 minutes I flip it, and 2-3 minutes later I add cinnamon and syrup! I've been looking for 0 calorie syrup but can't find any in my city. Cook up some egg whites and make a protein shake. The protein shake is just to add a bit of extra protein to the meal.




Meal 5
TILAPIA AND POTATO
A solid healthy meal before bed, and I sleep well. I make sure my last meal is a bit smaller, and a nice easy to digest protein like tilapia.
HOW I MADE IT
I make my fish the same way as my chicken, except I use lemon pepper for seasoning.



Macros
Here's the meal plan I used for today. So don't fret if you're a future competitor, with a little bit of work you can still eat awesomely tasteful foods!! Just make sure you calculate everything!!!! I'm living proof that you can eat french toast with maple syrup and get more ripped everyday:).



Took a picture of the fish that is cooking as I type:)

If you guys got any questions about these meals, leave a comment!! I'm planning on making a video that shows how I make my spreadsheets and calculate my macros! I found all the online websites that do it to be to inaccurate, vague, or annoying to use, so I made my own system!!!!!

Alright that's all, later guys!!!!

  1. Hey,

    At what approximate times do you eat these meals? Mainly how do you schedule them around your pre-workout shake, post-workout shake (and/or meal) ?

  2. Hey dude, I try to have most of my carbs early on in the day, because that optimizes my energy for the day. It doesn't matter if I have carbs later on though, it's not going to make me gain any fat or anything.

    I also make sure that 20-30% of my daily carbs are in my pre workout meal, and 20-30% in my post workout meal. Other then that the remaining 40-60% are throughout the day!

    I eat about an hour before the gym, and about an hour or two after!
