Diet > 1st timer, 21 weeks out- Is my meal plan right for me?

Hello, I am a 1st time aspiring bikini/figure comp. i have 2 coaches. They are very smart. They themselves have won a lot as well. I live an hr away from them and we communicate mostly via FB messages. I work out 7 days a week. (2 off days include 30 mins of cardio & 30 mins of ab work outs) These work outs take me a good 2 hrs. I have 30 mins of cardio 5 days(not on leg days). I am 5'3, i started begining of DEC. 2017 at 136lbs. ive gained muscle mass for sure. But now im at 144.6 I FEEL LIKE CRYING! is this normal? I lost 4lbs and then was sick for 2.5 weeks. continued to train. but couldn't eat as much. MY sample meal plan is... 1.5 scoops protein powder 2tbps pb 2 eggs, 7 egg whites (carbs. 4 days a week, 75g of oatmeal) 5oz turkey, 3oz greenbeans 2oz almonds 5oz chicken, 3oz greenbeans 2oz almonds 5oz lean beef, with large salad and red wine vinegar 1st this is a LARGE amount of oatmeal for me and a large amount of food as well. This is my daily. i feel like im not losing FAt like i should be. Also Why would i be gaining weight?- yes muscle but isnt that a lot?-shouldnt i be LOSing not gaining? or is this common? any advice?

Diet > Meal Planning Tool

Hey Everyone, Curious about the meal planning tool, getting results, dropping consistently (still have a ways to go) Everything I read says adjust by the 10% rule. However I'm curious as with being down ten lbs and lowered body fat do I enter the current numbers into the meal planning tool or the starting ones? If I put in the current numbers there is a 10% decrease in my calories. Thanks

Competition Tips > BIKINI BITE??

Kim Sawyer

I have not yet tried bikini bite, though mostly prefer to apply sunscreen or my suitable lotion ie. pro tan roll on, for the protection of the skin.

Diet > Casein

Does anyone have a sugar-free casein that tastes good you can recommend? Most of what I have found contains sugar and 5-6 carbs. Thanks!

Upcoming Competitions > coffe creamer while on prep

I use flavored sugar free creamer in my coffee. My trainer suggested that when the time comes...to use cinnamon , a little vanilla extract and skim milk instead...It just temporary until after the show.

Diet > 2 Weeks Out - Plateauing

I would definitely decrease your carbs to assist leaning out the next 2 weeks. Eat any carbs about 30-60 mins prior to working out and avoid them for the rest of the day unless it is a non-starchy salad or vegetable. If you switch your cardio to longer sessions at a steady pace you will engage your fatty acid oxidative energy system, meaning you will burn fat for energy instead of ATP-CP during your sprint sessions. Even if you can do 30 mins (or 5km) steady runs 4x each week that will greatly help.
