Exactly! And they are tasty on top of it all! I normally always have a jar of pickles at the house, sauerkraut not as much, but not sure why not, TimM says more sauerkraut!! I love the stuff, last time I had some I made sauerkraut soup with it, delicious, I wish I wrote down the recipe.

@Rick - that was some funny stuff man.
I cut out all diet soda, aspartame, and splenda 8 weeks before a show because I have heard that all the toxins from that stuff store in your lower abs and make them look fat.
SOunds crazy but not taking any chanes.. lol

I love them and go through a ton of them during a contest diet. Espically the last 4-5 weeks, I was having 2-3 20oz bottles a day. I leave them in until the monday before a competition and that is just because of the protocol I use. Heck, I had some in between prejuding and the night show with my burger

Scratch that: on weekends I drink jack and coke zero, because I'm responsibly irresponsible :P

Honestly I'm one of the vascularity-blessed, I'd freak out the second my bi-forearm veins start to dissapear. But yeah, normally the day after I am alot more dry and lean looking.
Urinating all night will do that.....

How much fat loss is too much fat loss in a weeks time?

I think that question depends on the amount of fat you are carrying and also if you have built up the lean mass you want to keep. I'd say when someone gets down in the low teens of BF% and you are dieting down to compete for BB shows, 2.5 is probably as fast as you should go. I'm no expert on this, but just research that I've seen and logs that I've read from those I trust...that's what I'd guess.

I'm with Rick on that one. The average trying-to-lose-weight Joe doesn't have and/or give a damn about his muscle mass, he can lose weight at any speed that he can reach. As long as he's getting proper nutrition that is

Yeah when i'm in my prep 2.5 is max for me. Anything over that i kinda get worried. I'd bump it up to 3 when i get close to show time.

I am the same way. I try to stay at 2.5 pounds a week UNLESS I am racing against the clock and I really need to lose more fat than anticipated!!! Stinks but got to do it sometimes!!
I am eat very very simple sugars for breakfast and right after workouts. I know alot of people would cringe if if they saw my morning carbs while contest dieting. What do you think???????????

I mix 1 scoop dextrose in my oatmeal and PWO shake so i'm right there witcha. 1 scoop is only 15g carbs but some people don't agree with its purpose.

And for my next show i'm thinking about front loading my carbs and tappering them down as the day goes on. Opposed from evening them out with each meal throughout the day and cutting them after training.

@Emeka-
When you are a natural athlete nutrient timing is one of the most important things ever!! You have got to to do everything to hold to muscle, grow muscle, and keep metabolism running high. In the morning to break out of that fast you have to very very quickly give your muscles what they need! Same thing after workouts! I have no shame eating some dextrose for breakfast!

lol, thanks for the support Tim!

I've read that your body is in the same condition in the morning as it is post workout. So that you can benefit greatly from treating your breakfast as a PWO meal giving it high protein, moderate carbs, and simple sugars for the spike. I've been doing it all this year and it's served a good purpose IMO.
