My Daily Plate
Leah is a bodybuilder and figure competitor who has been participating in figure competitions for the past two years. Below is a snapshot of what she eats on a typical day.
I am currently on my off season from competitions. I was on competition prep from January to October 2014 and took some time in the summer to add in extra calories and try to put on more muscle, but by October body was exhausted. I am currently “reverse dieting” to rebuild my metabolism and get myself to a caloric intake high enough by increasing my carbohydrate and fat intake while reducing the amount of cardio I do.
During this time, I’ve been having able to hit personal records when lifting and have still been able to enjoy time with my friends and family out. Balance is key and I’ve found out that this works for me and my lifestyle. Bodybuilding is a mental game and I’ve had to constantly check that I was emotionally and mentally balanced during this journey.
