    Any tips for dealing with food focus as you get deeper into prep? It seems like all I think about now is food, my emotions are more down than up and I have very little energy. I have 6.5 weeks to go until Nationals. Thank you.

    Regular refeeds, I’d definitely still have your refeeds in that far out from comp.

    Next option is a stretch and should only be used in certain cases… if you are confident you will be making weight and that’s no issue, take a week at maintenance cals. A week at maintenance cals could be the mental and physical refresh you need to push hard those last 5ish weeks.
    Good luck in your comp, post pics if possible!

    Thank you. Today I finally found veggies that I like. I will be having a cup with my two chicken meals. Already putting my beef over lettuce, so hopefully that and regress will help.

    This was Friday’s check in at 198.9. Just over the 198.25 for my division.
