    I am 6 weeks in to a 16 week prep and this has been great so far

    This is my 11th show and this by far is the most progress I have made in 6 week time period. It usually takes me twice as long to drop what i have. And my food/carbs are high

    I keep comparing myself to others and I get so flippin discouraged! I need to not do that, but how the hell do you stop yourself????
    STOP! lol Take a good look at all your progress pictures and see how far you've come. DON'T get discouraged. 5 weeks is enough time to get where you need to be. We're here to help you through it - that's why Tammy put this thread up.

    if anyone reads my posts at this point in prep, you would say WHAT A BEOTCH! i try to treat myself to little things at this point ...like a new mag, bubble bath etc...
    I remember your past prep. So now we know. Don't worry...we'll take good care of you.

    Thanks you guys for this thread. I lurk more then anything and really appreciate this board for its no B.S. attitude.

    I'm 8 weeks out - deep into that nasty "grind" stage where you aren't loving what you see in the mirror yet, concerned with being ready on time, and due to a screwed up off season I have no room for error if I am going to be ready on time.

    Today I had a nasty run in with a jar of nut butter and some other sundries in my pantry. I didn't do a lot of damage to my macros I just don't like this flakey behavior knowing if I don't get stable and back to the grind this could just be the begining.

    Just venting - I know the answer - don't do it and make sure I'm managing my macros across my day to keep me as stable as possible - but UGH!!!

    I found myself in the jar several times so now they are at my next door neighbors house until after my next competition. He thought I was crazy bringing over 10 jars of various nut butters!

    Okay that is fantastic!!! Hubby got reamed for having bagels and pop tarts in the pantry (he is doing UD2.0 and had carb up foods left) - this could have been FAR uglier!!!

    It is fascinating to me that we can have moments where we are tough in control and focused and in a split second be poised over a jar with a spoon.

    Tammy, thanks for starting this thread! I just started my contest prep with Dave. If anyone is currently doing his diet or has done it in the past, they know what I'm getting myself into! LOL This will be my second show under Dave's guidance...he's the BEST but I start getting bitchy early on...usually around 10 weeks out I have to stop putting on so much weight in the off season...damn pizza!

    first go at with dave's diet also. The first 4-5 days were literally some of the hardest days ever to get through, but after that it gets easier. I still have hunger pains and cravings, but general energy and mood is good and workouts have not suffered at all, if anything they're better with keto than with carbs!

    Duncan,

    My husband and I both did Dave's diet last show and we looked the best we ever had for a show. It was the most difficult prep I ever had though...

    Good Luck!

    I attempted it with my last prep and found myself binging on the nut butters, nuts etc so I had to take them out all together. I have always carb cycled in the past and never cheated or binged on my diet while prepping. I guess it's just not for everyone.....I did love the diet though and found it easy to prepare my food etc just couldn't stick with it.

    Anyone else find this?

    what is it with nut butter and binging? it is sooo common with us competitors!

    i dont think i could do daves diet because it is a trigger food for me, as well as nuts in general.

    I'll be doing Dave's diet starting May 30th. I've already planned to replace nut butters and nuts with other things...mac nut oil, guacamole.

    That's what I ended up doing GM and I found myself actually drinking my mac nut oil Ya, I know, I have a bit of a problem.

    I now know that fats (other then my capsules) are huge triggers when I am dieting. It's crazy that I don't crave it when I am doing a carb cycle.
