High Fat Diet and Figure Competition Training – High Fat, No Deprivation!

August 10, 2016

Truth of the day: Do not fear fat. It’ll get you shredded. 😉

I’m on a mission to break the molds, nay the nay-sayers, and shred the f**k out of my body. Oh, and do a figure competition!

My recipe for unconventional figure competition diet prep:

  • High Fat
  • Moderate Protein
  • Low Carb
  • Feel Nourished

I’m doing my best to follow my macros pretty closely. 

Protein: 40%

Fat: 40%

Carbs: 20%

While some days are closer to 30% protein, 50% fat, 20% carbs, others will be higher carb with 40%. Those higher carb days I’ll drop fat but keep protein high. MyMacros+ app is helping keep my macros in check and my calories collected each day. It’s also a great reality check for how high in calories and fat peanut butter really is. ;P

So, what am I consuming?

In my mouth goes a TON of vegetables, leafy greens, proteins and high quality fats.

Frequently eaten:

Proteins

  • chicken breast
  • cod (or other white fish)
  • salmon
  • chicken thighs
  • ground beef
  • bison

Greens

  • mixed greens, leafy greens
  • kale
  • zucchini
  • yellow squash
  • onions
  • asparagus
  • cauliflower
  • broccoli
  • cherry tomatoes, tomatoes

Fats

  • peanut butter
  • avocado
  • olive oil
  • ghee
  • coconut oil

Carbs

  • blueberries
  • raspberries
  • strawberries
  • bananas (very minimally)
  • sweet potatoes (very minimally)
  • kombucha (hell, yes)

Others

This foods list might seem small to some, maybe even lacking variety, but I’m eating so much variety compared to my last prep. I feel satiated and nourished. In between meals I’m not ravished and I never feel “hangry.” Blood sugar levels are stable, energy levels are stable, gym energy is on fire. 🙂

Meal prep has been made so much easier using prep containers that I’ve now fallen in love with. They’re cheap, microwavable and reusable, and dishwasher safe. $10 gets you 7 LIFT containers. Great deal for what these are. 🙂

So far so good on week three and still going strong.

Of course, I’m drinking a lot of water, teas, bubbly water, and coffee. Sadly, I am trading in my 3x/week almond milk latte for black coffee but luckily I love black coffee more than almost anything else in the world.
