Since I started competing and before this I have really noticed the difference between when I eat something that’s good for me and when I eat something that isn’t so good for me!
I have been “clean eating” for a long time now but in the run up to a competition it gets stricter and stricter the nearer the comp gets. I ban myself from booze, chocolate, cake, sweets crisps nuts. Even white potato, rice bread and pasta goes too! It is tough at first but I soon adjust to increasing my vegetables and protein.
The benefit of this is that I get lean and find I rarely get any bloating as I’m not eating anything processed. My digestive system works well and I get very regular!!
Its all that fibre! So I feel great!
Although with the calorie deficit to get so lean I am sometimes a bit hungry.
