what did you use pre-contest to still keep you so round and full despite the extensive cardio you said you were doing on the stepmill?

You use a lot of Chris Acetos stuff right? because hes a big proponent of lowering protein when carbs are higher and keeping protein at 1.5 during pre-contest
congrats on your success in bodybuilding
Jose your conditioning at NY Pro was simply off the charts!
You have a tremendous physique bro and are a true inspiration to us smaller bodybuilders
Along with Evan's, I am predicting right now this will become the absolute most popular Q and A in this section.

HELLO JOSE//CAN YOU ALLABORATE A LITLE ON YOUR CONTES PREP DIET? AS FAR AS AAMOUNTS OF PROTEIN -CARBS-FAT? HOW HIGH DID YOU GET ON PRO AND HOW LOW ON CARBS AND FAT?
ALSO HOW MUCH PROTEIN YOU RECOMEND FOR MAX MASS GAINS AND MAX MASS RETANTION THROUGH A RIPING DIET AND OFF SEASON THATS ALSO BE HEALTHY ON ORGANS?
Jose, do you weigh your food before or after cooking? I've seen alot of guys argue either way. I tend to weigh after cooking (after it's all cooled off and settled) primarily due to convience. I weigh about 170 at lower than 10% bf. I usually eat 6 ounces of cooked meat. Do you feel this is sufficient? I've heard this is close to 50 grams of protein but am unsure?
Also, what you said about lowering your protein in the offseason interested me. I've def read excessive protein intake canbe bad for the kidneys long term so maybe I should do that also. Paranoid though bc of that meathead mentality that I'll loose muscle mass and strength.
Last thing, how much fat do you generally take in contest and offseason and do you have pro/carb/fat meals or jus pro/carb pro/fat? Thanks. I know that was alot, I'm just bored at work..

Whats up Jose! I know you said in your vids that you know your body needed carbs and on here you said you realized you weren't eating enough. Do you feel that these days too many competitors dont eat enough? and since you kept carbs in how high were your fats?
Congrats Big dog. Glad to finally see you get all that you deserve. Very huge inspiration for me as I look to work my way up into the IFBB.
