Looking For REAL Figure Prep Diet Tips?

Figure competitors are judged and scored on:
Seeing a competition can be exciting and intimidating all at the same time. However, there’s nothing to be feared. Newbie’s are entering competitions all the time and even winning! All you need to prepare, enter, and win are a few figure prep diet tips.
Figure Prep Diet Tip #1
Your figure prep diet is the ESSENTIAL element to your success and should be scheduled and followed like clockwork. A prep diet can last 12-14 weeks, but this time factor needs to be based on your weight, body fat percentage, body type, etc. This extended prepping period is to allow you to lose body fat without sacrificing muscle or destroying your metabolism. Taking body fat off slowly allows you to keep all your hard-earned muscle, and in some cases, even build some muscle.
Figure Prep Diet Tip #2
Take time out to relax and cheat a little on your prep diet. That’s right, I said cheat! During your first several weeks of dieting it is perfectly fine, and encouraged, to have ONE cheat meal once a week. This allows you to indulge in the sinful food you tell yourself you can’t have, it gives you something to look forward too, it prevents binges, and ironically it can boost your metabolism and pull it out of a rut and get the fat burning fire going again.
Figure Prep Diet Tip #3
Go the extra mile and do what it takes to stay on your contest diet under any circumstance. Whether it’s a holiday, family get-together, business meeting, etc. Attending food functions and socializing will usually always present unhealthy and unprescribed foods. Your diet is the key to your success so pack and carry your own food with you so you know you are getting the right amount of calories to take you to your goal.
Figure Prep Diet Tip #4
Structure your off-season diet to allow enough protein for muscle building, carbs for energy, and fats for hormonal balance and tweak those numbers when you begin to diet down to lose body fat. As you diet down and you change your macronutrient percentages, you will eventually lower carbs. When you lower carbs, be sure to increase essential fats to provide energy.
Figure Prep Diet Tip #5
Figure prep dieting and training can take a toll on your body, so be sure to include a high-quality multi-vitamin. David Robson at www.Labrada.com states, “Muscles not only are more efficient during but respond better to intense training when properly nourished. This means a complete array of vitamins and minerals must be present to ensure all bodily processes – from blood sugar regulation to liver function to mental health.” Other beneficial supplements for muscle recovery are glutamine, BCAA’s, and protein drinks. There is also an array of fat burners to help kick your metabolism up if your weight loss begins to stall.
Figure Prep Diet Tip #6
Planning your meals in advance will give you the extra edge you need to stay on top of your game. Every 4-6 days spend some time planning, cooking, and packaging your scheduled meals. This planning and preparing act allows you to have good and healthy food ready-to-go.
If you get on a figure prep system, follow it diligently, there is absolutely no reason why you can’t compete in a figure competition, look outstanding, and win. Take that first step now so you can finally live your dream.
