"When it comes to nutrition and dieting for a competition," Shane says, "I believe in keeping the body as healthy as possible. That helps you stay free from illness and your workouts don't suffer. When I diet for a contest I like to get my protein, carbs and vitamins from a variety of food, such as white meat, red meat, yams, potato, fruits and grains, etc.
"I'm not a great believer in fad diets, or low-carb or zero-carb diets. During my preparations, I try to get away with keeping my calories high for as long as possible so my workout intensity remains high and my body stays strong."
Shane accomplishes this goal by dieting slowly—up to 25-30 weeks depending on competition dates. As Shane gets closer to a competition, he tapers his calories accordingly.

i do my meal prep every morning for the whole day and only takes me 20-30 mins max while my pre workout kicks in before i hit the gym. i'm NEVER in the kitchen cooking more than that on any given day. it's definitely possible.
