      Usually a burger and fries between PJ and the night show.

        It has varied, but as a rule, I typically stick with lower amounts of protein & moderate carbs from chicken and sweet potato. I've typically had some kind of sugar/fat/sodium 30-45 min before stepping onstage (candy bar, etc...). This past time I had french fries and it seemed to really help fill me out.

        Between PJ and finals, I've routinely had either an 8oz steak or a burger w/ no bun and fries with a little water and a diet pepsi.

        This has produced the most "consistant" results for me. I have tried a couple of other methods, but it was HIT and MISS...

          If you are dry and hard and keeping your water intake
          to almost zero you can eat what ever you want clean,junk
          sodium,fat it doesn´t matter. I´ve done shitloading before and
          it worked great the only thing I did wrong was not to eat alot.
          I was in shape and I was dry and I just grubbed on donuts,cookies
          pizza candy you name it. Everyone was back stage trying to force down
          dry rice and chicken I just sat there eating junk the whole time I placed 4th in that show out of 22 competitors I I was the guy the weigh in on the lowest weight in the light heavys and due to my condition and dryness I managed to place 4th with only a point or so from being third.

            Thats got to be a funny site watching this ripped bodybuilder sitting there like a glutton eating donuts and chocolate. He he he. I would love to try that just for the strange looks, but the cautious part of me that says stick to the foods you've been eating for the whole prep. I dont want to change anything. Im gonna carb up on baked oatmeal, apple butter, maybe some honey.... and take in small amounts of protein.
