Yes TinaT, this is me at my last competition Aug 2013. I do train really heavy and for about 2 hours a day but during competition prep I never went below 2800 calories, right now I am suppose to start prep for the same competition but then I started randomly reading Diet Recovery and now I am on the fence about what to do. I have been eating about 3000-3500 calories a day, I don’t track outside of prep but I normally eat all the same foods and I add in more treats and don’t care so much about portion control. I have been following the Fighter Diet principles and although my carbs have been high (one head of cabbage has 70 grams) 90% of my carbs are vegetables. I usually end the day with about 300-400 grams of carbs. I have definitely been drinking too much water. That is the symptom that really caught my attention that I might have damaged my metabolism. I just assumed I was doing everything right. Lots of calories, lots of carbs, lots of water… I never guessed I was over doing anything, I didn’t think that was possible. I really appreciate you taking the time to give me your opinion. Since I am so new to this and am still in shock that I have done this to myself, your opinion means a lot to me. Thank you
