I’m 6’1 and stage weight was around 187-188 carb loaded. I dieted on a Dave Palumbo type keto diet, macros were 100-115f 250-275p and carbs were from vegetables and fiber supplement only. Last two weeks I alternated with protein and vegetables only (300p 30f vegetables).
Only had 8 weeks to really prep as I’m in the navy and finished up a three month deployment in July. All in all I’m happy with where I was at. I lost around 30 pounds (considerable muscle) on that deployment and was fortunate to be even able to compete.
I won my open class (only three competitors unfortunately) and was dead center in the overall (6 classes) by my estimation I was second overall but they only announced first. Learned a lot and hopefully one day I can go pro.
