Ive been wanting to do a bodybuilding contest for a while. Im 19 years old and a freshman in college. My thing is I cant effectively diet down to contest level leanness with my meal plan. Getting lean is fine but not contest lean when the healthiest thing with meat is basically a deli. I was planing to wait till later on in college when i eventually have my own place and can buy my own food.
my question is: when do you feel ready to compete, and what age were you?
