…because it was made to entice and tempt the mind of a committed person on a strict diet. that’s why..lol
I would say above all else my biggest hurdle for attaining the best physique and making it to comp day is by far the constant all day AND night cravings. And it doesn’t help when you live near every single fast food place in town. I can’t even drive to the bookstore (which is 5 min away) without passing 6 or more fast food places, not to mention the 5 other sit down restaurants. UGH!! torture for sure.
Currently my prep has been going on for 15 long grueling weeks. No sodium, low carb, low-fat. I’m starting to feel like a lizard..lmao, i swear i now have the ability to smell with my tongue..HA HA HA. I can smell salty fat dripping burgers a mile away and my will power is slipping!!!
The one thing I’ve got to remember is i have 9 weeks 5 days to conquer this mind of food issue. I’ve got to keep my mind focused on how AMAZING my body will look if i eat everything I’m supposed to eat, drink all the water i need to and win the battle over my cravings. At this point in my prep my diet is the sole reason i will look like the goddess i need to be stepping on stage. And although i love training..that comes in a far 2nd place to my diet.
I need a mantra..something where i can close my eyes..rock back and forth and chant over and over to find my taste bud demons (yes those little beasts exist..and they enjoy seeing you weak).
I can do this. I’ve already beat 15 weeks of this..what’s 9 weeks and 5 days…right?
AYE DIOS. Mind over Food!!! Time to kick it up a notch!!
