Ok girls, I need some help... the tuna is killing me! I'm 4wks out and need some suggestions for a morning snack other than tuna. I do the traditional diet with eggs/oatmeal, tuna, chicken/rice, protein shake, chicken/veggies. Any suggestions for that mid-morning snack? As you all know, low fat, low cal, med carbs, high protein. My trainer tells me to "suck it up and just do it" but I'm in hopes some of you girls have experienced the same dilemma and have some suggestions.  Huh

Stick w/your diet....you'll be glad you did (are you getting a cheat meal once a week?)


Here are some "snacks" that could help you get through....

sugar free gum (not too many pieces though)

hot tea w/splenda

(sorry, might not seem thrilling but they were to me Undecided)

Also, maybe change the flavor of your protein shake every once in a while for a little variety.

Have a great time at your show!

Are you getting any good fats in your diet???  One thing I eat mid-morning is a handful of almonds sometimes with a protein shake.  Sometimes I will also snack on raw veggies just to have something to do.  Like stella said, sf gum and tea...you can try different flavors.  Some girls will have crystal light and maybe sf jello.  It sucks when you actually crave fruit, huh?  Just know that it will all be worth it and 4 weeks will fly by.  Good luck.

I have no idea if this will help, but it helps me as I live in the tropics. I make popsicles from Crystal light. They hit the spot when I am craving. Also sugar free jello like Jennifer said.

But more importantly - you are 4 weeks out - follow the diet!!!

"Crave the trophy, not the food"

"Nothing tastes as good as winning feels"


Excuse the cliches, but you get my point  Grin

Good luck!

Thanks so much for the advise and suggestions. Yes the sf gum is a great thing, also I've found Ice Breakers Sours... zero calories! And CQ, I like the quote "Crave the trophy, not the food", definitely keeping that one in mind. Thanks you guys!  Smiley

SF popsicles are great!  They do have 15 cals per pop though, so I limit myself to only a couple a day... at least I try to limit myself.... when I am about 2 wks out, I cut them out alltogether.

If you don't want to increase calories then:  beef jerky, milk (carbcountdown skim is low calorie and a good source of protein) with instant coffee and splenda.  You can substitute these for a protein shake to keep calories and protein the same, but get some flavor in your diet.

nutrition facts of carb countdown milk: http://www.hphood.com/products/prodDetail.aspx?id=578

Also eat some strawberries or other fruit in place of plain rice.  Fruit are low GI.

That is why I make them myself...with crystal light/sf kool aid.

Works out to be about 1/2 calorie each.

Plus you can't really buy SF popsicles here anyway Undecided

Pickles, sugar free jell-o gelatin kind only though not the pudding, also sometimes when your hungry your actuallythirsty, so Tang, and all kinds of crystal light taste real good.

Nothing is going to happen to your conditioning if you have like a Banana or something right before or right after your workout, hell you can even have a few pieces of candy before ur workout or something its not going to make a difference.... go get a mini sized snickers and pop 2 before u hit the gym, ur not going to come in out of shape just because of that LOL

No offense intended Muvirse, but I would disagree here..

Gottastayfit....stick to your diet Wink

Im not offended I just dont see how a little snack like that is going to effect anybodys conditioning.. I know people that have gone into competition eating a pastry everyday up until a show and they were still the most ripped person there.

Yeah...there are those lucky types.....also the use of 'supps' in some cases.

For me personally, as a major endomorph, I have to eat very strict and do a disgusting amount of cardio to get show lean Angry

Since I do not know her, what type of physique/metabolism she has, and she is 3/4 weeks out I would just say to err on the side of safety.

I really appreciate the replies and suggestions. I'm with you CQ, I have to do my share of cardio twice a day and eat clean. The snicker snack sounds good but I wouldn't even consider it and I truly wish eating a pastry was an option for me.  Tongue Oh well... 3wks to go and looking at that trophy, think I'll keep it clean and just push thru! Best of luck to fellow competitors, hoping the Jr. USA will be as awesome as last year.  Wink

Good attitude and good luck to you- I also don't think it is worth it (the snickers bar) though the thought of it makes me salivate!!! Let us know how you do!

I am having many last good cheat meals Wink
I have 3 shows this year but my main one will be the IFBB Women's World Championships in Spain. I am also toying with the idea of doing an NPC show in the US just for the hell of it...having not competed in the NPC before.
