WEEK 6: Nutrition
This week Stephanie, Erica and I talk about nutrition and compeition diets. At just over 6 weeks out we are reaching the half way point in the 12 week prep and the diet has to tighten up. For me this means carb cycling and dropping calories (just a little). I explain what carb cycling is, how it works, and most importantly how to do it!
