    If that's all the carbs you are taking you are already carb depleting 7 weeks out, bad move in my opinion, i never drop my carbs below 100-150gm of carbs per day and more often then not 200gm /day...unless i am following Keto/CKD type diet...but if someone is helping you get ready you might as well stick with their game plan...as i said there is no point in lowering your carb intake any lower you are already depleted...XXL

    so my best bet would be to add one more meal with about 30 to 40 grams of carbs? making that about 100-150 grams? i am doing my own diet what do you think i should do......im kinda cautious cuz of my diet right now because i wanna make sure i come in looking good so i cut back the carbs......but should i add that one more meal?

    Not true, 5 out of my seven meal while dieting for a show have carbs in them and if you seen some of my pics floating around here i think i dial in OK...carbs will make you look fuller in the muscles, and keep you sane in the brain and help you retain muscle mass while dieting...it's the choices of carbs that make the differance...as for should you ad one more meal...sh1t Bro i don't know, i do not know your body, your training style, i haven't seen your pictures, i don't know what you look like 7 weeks out...how much weight are you loosing per week...??...XXL

    well from week 12 to now (7 weeks) ive lost about 12 lbs....but between week 12 and 7 i was eating about 4 meals with carb (oatmeal, rice, dex pwo) and i wasnt really getting lean, then this past week i started just to get the two carb meals with my pwo's and i think i lost some size, and that just sux!! Your right i should add some carb meals.....how about just having my 1st and last two meals of the day without carbs.....and the rest with carbs ( rice, oatmeal)?

    I always have Oatmeal with my first meal, i think of it as getting myself ready for the ret of the day meal, you are going to need carbs to get through the day and nothing like Oatmeal in the morning, by the time i make my breakfast it's about 1/2 hour sience i did cardio, good enough for me...you should post some pictures so you can get more direct help Bro...XXL

    You look good Bro, i would deffinitly ad that Oatmeal meal for breakfast and leave the rest alone...you do look a bit flat and it's lack of carbs...no worries, don't stress and worry about sh1t either, remember this is for fun, right? you only need to loose around 7-9 more pounds to be in the 5% body fat range that so that's only about 1lbs per week, make sure you don't loose more as it more then likely will be muscle...just stick to the 1lbs or 1.25lbs per week and you will be good to go...XXL

    I like to have one big carb meal on the weekend, whatever floats your boat, i usually have 1/2 large CHEEESLESS pizza, that's right pizza with no cheese and with grilled chicken, mushrooms and tomatoes + 1 chocolate bar...that is my cheat meal...if you want something more traditional have a boal of pasta or potatoes...with chicken...i cut out my cheat meals 3-4 weeks out of the show...XXL

    The amount of Dextrose is fine...i wouldn't take too much fat with your protein drink before bed...maybe 2.5-5ml at the most, just enough to slow down the digestion...XXL
