If you plan to compete then the first thing you need to know is how your body responds to reducing calories without reducing your protein intake. To be able to show all your hard earned muscle you need to lose fat and means reducing calories and changing to zero calorie foods.

The competition diet plan below should be started 12 weeks or three months prior to the competition. After four weeks on the diet you will be used to eating 6 meals a day with three main meals and three snacks and then slowly start reducing calories. The last week or two before the competition you will start changing you sodium and fluid intake to get ultra-ripped and show your best muscle separation.

A brief note on food-swaps that should be done when desired so you do not get bored. The basic foods like chicken or brown rice and broccoli listed in the diet below can and should be easily changed with the equivalent weights. The chicken can be changed to turkey, Tilapia, Haddock or cod. The brown rice can be swapped with sweet potato or yam and the broccoli can be swapped for asparagus, spinach or green beans.

Water is vitally important, in addition try to consume at least one gallon of water by having 16 cups a day of water, which is a gallon every 24 hours. You should also get into the habit of reducing your sodium intake but you can use many different low calorie condiments including mustard and a hot sauce.
