    Sorry if you answered this already...

    How many carbs do you take in on average per day during your offseason?

    How many carbs do you take in on diet?

    Im sure you might have touched in this but I havent read it before.

    Thanks,

    I would recommend getting your diet back on track, get back in the gym consistantly and train super hard. Make every work out count. thats all you can ask for

    I average about 500 grams per day off season and about 400 pre contest. I dont rotate or change them much from 16 weeks to the show. Lots of white rice and brown sugar oatmeal.

    But like i said i havent been doing this that long, and the pics are pre - christmas and different diet so not a true representation of how i look now.
    I would continue to train hard and heavy. Get your diet down to a tee and do some cardio as well. Cardio will help make you grow and get you looking good. Women tend to carry more weight in their lower, concentrate on a good conditioining typ of work out.

    I train for conditioning year round and only expect to put on a few pounds of muscle per year, with spot on condition. But im talking quality muscle, not just bulk. Mix up your work out till you find what works for you, then go all out and dont look back! get in a zone. This is a loner sport in my opinion, you are your best friend, be selfish, its all about you my friend!

    My training is as hard and heavy as i can manage at the moment. had an accident in the gym which resulted in me landing on the leg of a bench and banging my tail bone. so i can lift as heavy as normal.
    Will have to look into conditioning workouts something never done.

    As for my diet typical day is
    meal 1 oats made with water, scoop of whey
    meal 2 chicken sandwich (low gi bread) no spread
    meal 3 rice and chicken
    meal 4 rice and chicken
    meal 5 post workout x2 scoops whey
    meal 6 fish and veggies.

    Is there anything u can see here that i need to change to get it spot on.

    Thank you

    I got the glutes from white rice! just

    kidding. I dont like brown rice, so 2 years ago when i was prepping for the usa I switched to white rice and ever since i have never even eaten brown. I have to eat foods that i can stomach and I got really shredded from the white rice so, screw brown.

    As far as fats go now in the off season, i eat about a tablspoon of pb with my oatmeal in the morning, another tablespoon at night or about 14 roasted dry almonds. I eat steak everyday, so im getting a decent amount of fat.
    pre contest i dont eat the peanut butter or almonds. Last year I was getting so lean, it was scary.
    at about two weeks out, i started eating some almonds before bedtime

    I will get back to you, in more detail but you definitely need to eat more. For example that first meal, you need more than a scoop of whey for protein. Same with your post workout meal and some of the others. YOur last meal is good. I will get back to you. take care, alex

    You know that quaker stuff that comes in packs, i eat that all the time. The flavor maple and brown sugar is the best.

    I pretty much cut the carbs off around six ocklock on and off season.

    I would venture to say yes he does....

    If you have set up your diet correctly you can eat fruit up until showtime......I have done it in the past where I ate an apple and a banana all the way until three days up until my show.....

    It can be done......
