    I tend to carb up with whatever is the main carb source in my diet at the time.
    Mostly oats, yams or cream of rice.

    I'd say I am pretty flat as of now. Been low carbing for quite a while. I planned on starting the carb up with:
    Angel food cake & rice cakes.
    A Waffle or two and syrup the morning of comp (5:30 am).
    Another waffle or rice cakes and honey (9:30 am).
    A few more rice cakes and honey before prejudging (11:00 am).
    Is this a retarded approach?
    I am open to any suggestions. . .

    I'm sure Mike wants to respond to this.
    My thoughts are you are so depleted how do you think you will ever fill out in a few hours? Day of show is going to be too late. You might look good later that next week.
    If you are a flat as I would think you are you will need all week to fill back out. I think you need to start adding in carbs a full week out. Increase each day. What I don't know is your size, how your body responds to carbs etc.
    So, you will need to add them in slowly through out the day.

    Mike what do you think?

    jmo, i dont think he would need a full week. worst case 5 days. I compete in lightweight and I wait until after weightin the DAY before to carb up. All depends on you and how your body reacts. Trial and error bro

    Thanks for the responses. . .
    Contest is over and I was just free-balling it all the way til I stepped on-stage. It is all trial and error and so highly individualized that experimentation is the only way to dial yourself in.

    The carbs inoatmeal will have to find some water somewhere, the idea is that it will pull some of the SQ water from underneath the skin adn help out with drying out, i worked for me...XXL
