    [ A ] Nothing has really changed as I normally rotate my carbohydrates on different days.

I feel this helps for attaining excellent peak conditioning.

    [ A ] At a show of this caliber all of the women are champions and the best of the best, so I can't really say...

Also, I plan on bringing my best package to the show so that anyone in the audience will see that I deserve to be on the Olympia stage with the rest of my sisters.
