you need the fats on this diet, it should form 70% of total cals, Im probably at 50% at the moment as I still have a small amout of carbs in the cottage cheese. milk and yoghurt..

I admire your dedication. Extreme diets are great for other people who benefit from them. I've always sought a balanced and sensible diet. So, there is little chance I would ever follow the diet you are currently doing. But then, I am not interested in becoming a competition bodybuilder. I am happy being relatively fit and darn healthy as compared to a lot of people. According to my doctor, I'm successful at maintaining nearly excellent health.

A weird thing that happens to me is that I tend to lose weight when I don't workout for awhile. Once I go back, my weight gradually increases despite my not changing my diet, including the quantity of food I eat.

Glycogen retention is probably a factor. I know I drink a lot more fluids when I'm working out than when I'm not.

Not at all, since I have been on this diet my stomach is flat first thing in the morning, it used to be bloated with the carbs and wheat

Im pretty sure I know the answer as to why all the competitors these days weigh so heavy, its large amounts of carbs and insulin.

This diet I am on doesnt really allow any water retention, its going straight through me, Im getting leaner and tightening up without even trying

I havent counted a single calorie or looked at what macros Im eating, its probably about 40/50% protein and 40/50% fat and 10% carbs

as Im not a big eater not sure how this is going to allow me to add more size and get ready for Septembers shows.
Im getting in shape and my muscles are responding again after the lay off

Its like gaining muscle and losing fat at the same time, (who would have thought it)
