17 May – 68 kg
This week has gone extremely well diet wise. I’ve cut out fruit this week, except on carb re-feed days, and have dropped 1.5 kgs. I’m definitely on track for 68kg on May 17.
Now I’m going to tell you tell you guys about the supplements I’m taking. I take supplements in addition to eating mostly organic/paleo to improve my physical recovery and mental performance.
1000IU x6 per day. Great for immune function and reducing inflammation. My last blood test showed that I was very low in Vitamin D (as my pasty skin doesn’t get much sunlight) so I’ve been supplementing for the past 3 months. Will be interesting to see where my levels are at after my next blood test.
500mg x2 per day. Helps to boost immune function. Earlier this week I had the flu and increased my Vitamin C to 4 tablets a day. Definitely recovered a lot quicker than previously. I was only sick for 2 days when normally I’d be stuffed for a week.
1000mg x1 per day. A lot of people use it for muscle recovery. I’ve mainly using it as an appetite suppressant and cognitive booster. I haven’t noticed any changes to my appetite but I am a lot more productive work wise after taking one of these.
1 cup a day, wakes me up in the morning.
Whey protein concentrate
I tend to have this with meals and as a meal replacement. I haven’t noticed any changes to muscle recovery with this but it is an easy way for me to get 30g of protein with each meal.
Helps with brain function. Before starting this diet I used to have 2 tablespoons of this in my coffee. Felt more of a buzz than just having coffee by itself, but now I have cut it out of my coffee to control my daily caloric intake.
Looking to implement:
- BCAAs – helps muscle recovery.
- Activated charcoal – removes toxins from diet.
- Bulletproof coffee – microtoxin free coffee, when used with MCT oil and grassfed butter a lot of people report that thier mental function goes through the roof. After my competiton I’m definitely going to experiment with this.
- Grass fed whey protein concentrate – higher quality protein.
I have based most my supplements from this link. Check it out. A lot of useful information in there.
Until next week.
