Steve, Alberto, and Eric discuss habits that make contest preps easier and more successful.
What is one factor that influences whether someone gains or loses weight during a refeed or diet break? Why do we continue to do a certain behavior even when we don’t want to? What advice do the coaches have on food choices during prep? How do the coaches feel about a less structured approach vs. a more structured approach to eating during prep? What is a “gaintenance phase”?
The answers to these questions, plus many more are covered in this episode.
