Just needed some advice, I have a mens physique show coming up in just under 3 weeks. Thus far, I’ve been doing a sort of IIFYM diet without any junk food or sugar fitting into those macros.
I have a few questions:
- Should I continue this type of dieting for the last 3 weeks or should I adopt a more conventional bland food and veg diet? I have no problem eating bland food if that is what will help me lose the extra fat, however if the calories and macros are the same, this shouldn’t matter right?
- My carbs are very low, max is 60g and lowest is 30g and my energy is very low. Should I slug it out or have a refeed with higher carbs keeping in mind I have lower belly fat to lose?
I follow a plant based diet and my food choices are the following:
- Quorn products
- Soya protein products
- Peanut butter
- Mixed veggies
- Protein powders
My current macros are 80f/30c/200p on rest days and 70f/60c/190p on weight training days.
I don’t want to turn this thread into a debate about a plant based diet vs meat etc, I have my reasons for eating this way. Just needed some direction.
