Food is life!

After eating 100% clean two days straight, I am convinced that food really is LIFE! Don't get me wrong, working out and meditation is important too, but if your nutrition is jacked up, you're missing a big piece of the puzzle.
Currently I am on what you would call an off-season diet. On-season, is normally 12-16 weeks out from a figure competition. During your on-season your goal is the lean out or diet down so that you can lose a much fat as needed while maintaining as much muscle as possible. NOT FUN!!!

I am on an off season diet. I am about 6-7 months (24-28 weeks) out from my first competition of the year. I have been on an off season diet for approximate 6 weeks so far. The goal is that I will gain lean mass or muscle and a little fat. Fat gain is unavoidable but you want to keep it to a minimum so you dont have to pay for your mistakes during your on-season.

A sample of my offseason diet:
Meal 1
4 egg whites + 1 whole egg
40g oatmeal
1 serving fruit
Post Workout Meal
1 scoop whey protein
Any low-fat carbohydrate to total approximately
40-42g of carbohydrate while not exceeding 200
Meal 2
1 serving Greek yogurt
2 servings fruit
3 fish oil capsules
Meal 5
85g chicken breast
130g brown rice
3 fish oil capsules
Meal 3
85g chicken breast
125g baked sweet potatoes
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
Meal 6
1 scoop whey protein
30g natural peanut butter
Off Days
 Yum Yum eat up!
