How Did You Get Started?

I went with a friend to his competition and thought, "I have been training longer than him. Maybe I should try it and see if I have what it takes along with the will power for the diet and intense training."

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

I try to stick with the same foods daily it's boring but it works.

I pyramid my carbs and protein from high carbs of 175-200 down to 50 on low day then back up and reduce my proteins down on my high carb days.
