Fooooooood! We all know I can eat. But now that I'm in the middle of my off-season after a busy competition season, it's super important that I eat to grow. That makes off-season dieting important for progress.
Off-season dieting must be done the right way and it's critical I keep that mindset. How many times do you hear competitors say, "I'm bulking," but then they only eat cookies or junk and the only progress they make is adding fat. How is dieting like that going to help you improve? That's not proper off-season dieting. It's just an excuse to be lazy with your nutrition and eat whatever you want.
You need to eat proteins, fats and carbs to make big improvements in the gym. For this off-season, I've put together a strong dieting plan. I eat all my meals as planned, but if I want to indulge in sweets or high-carb meals, I will do that. I also drink a Beast Protein shake to make sure that I'm still getting enough protein at each meal.
At this point, it's been a few months on my off-season diet. To be honest, it's getting hard to just keep eating. Some days I simply don't want to eat that much food. Rest assured, some days I'm forcing the food down. That's where it's helpful to have Beast Protein and Beast Mass. Those two products help get in those extra calories. It can be difficult at times, but I know this is what's going to make my off season the best.
Being on point during your off-season dieting is just as important as on season. You can fall off your diet. Knowing that, next year I want to come in as a Juan Diesel 5.0 super-charged version of myself. But to do that, I know I have to keep on track with all my meals!
I still cook my meals, prep my food and make sure if I have to leave the house for any length of time I am prepared and have my food with me. There is never a day that I am unprepared, which is another huge key in your off-season dieting going well. Even if I am going to be eating out or on the road, I ALWAYS have a jug of Beast Protein with me. One thing is for sure - I'll never be without enough protein!
People often think meal prepping is only when prepping for a show, but it's NOT! EAT UP and make sure your off-season diet is on point! 'Till next time...
