Your contest prep diet is key to getting in top shape.   Your contest prep diet should be different from your off-season nutrition.  Regardless of which phase you are in, it is necessary to eat a wide-variety of nutrients that are rich in fiber, protein, and carbs derived from fresh and natural, and even organic sources.

When you start your contest prep diet begin to wean off and eliminate processed foods.  Such foods slow down your body’s ability to burn off fat.

The little trick in figure competition dieting is tweaking your diet every week or two so your body turns into a fat-burning furnace.
