You're almost there man, all your hard work comes down to these next few days. Just stay calm and confident and you'll look crazy on stage.
Yeah I am supposed to be at work right now but left early because I wasnt feeling good. Just dropped my carbs down too low and a combination of it being my third day of depletion, school, and work stress just tore down on me and I got really dizzy and lightheaded at work, hypoglycemia. I thought it a smart idea to have 8oz of orange juice and a little bit of chocolate and it made me feel SO much better. Damn that chocolate tasted good! Cancelled the rest of my clients for the night and dont think it will be that big of a deal in the end! Going to try to hit my final depletion workout after a lil nap.
Oh there will be plenty.
So I just wanted to clarify and give reasoning behind sweet potatoes and yams while carbing up, especially if using a diuretic in conjunction. 1 medium yam contains 1500 mg of potassium and one medium sweet potato contains 541 mg. Now the average banana has about 420 mg. I believe the daily value is close to 2000 mg for the average person. Multi vitamins rarely contain any potassium in them. Potassium is crucial for muscle contraction. The last thing you want is to cramp up on stage or throw off electrolyte balance cuz you lost to much water and consequently potassium! Just Creators lil tid bit for the day
Meal 3: 1 medium yam and half a chicken breast
Meal 4: 1 medium sweet potato and half a chicken breast
Had 3 bags of green tea while in class this afternoon.
RDA: 1950-5460 mg, or 50-140 mmol (1 millimole/mmol = 39mg)
Deficiency: More common in persons on diuretic drugs who suffer from prolonged vomiting and diarrhea. Symptoms of potassium deficiency include muscular weakness, apathy, confusion and an abnormal heartbeat.
Good idea searching for potatssium.
People usually cramp when they follow the water manipulation method (out-dated), and in conjunction they fail to outlook potassium. Agree'd, it's absolutely a must for contractile proteins to work properly.
As of right now, I don't think enough carbs. In meal 3and4 your carbs equal approx to 60g carbs.
Opinions on game plan:
Tomorrow if you're still dry up carbs by 30g-40g/meal. Maintain water. If your subq water is becoming more visible or is even coming out, then up your dosage of the diuretic. Also count how many times you urinate starting tomorrow to make sure you're on track.
Good luck bud!
