What I Eat & Tips for Comp Prep!

Ness Herrera

I don’t often share much about my calories and macros while I’m on prep, and it’s not because I’m hiding anything - if anything Im eating close to 2000 calories almost 4 weeks out of my show and still dropping body fat! I just don’t want to give unrealistic expectations on what you would think its right for you, as everyone’s body composition is different. Im a strong believer in that food is power and dependant on your health goal - or if you are competing, your calories and macros should be specific for you.

Here is a list of what I do eat in terms of my proteins, fats and carbs and some tips and tricks I use to help anyone who is prepping food! 

This is what my go - to’s are while prepping, and to be honest most of the time:

Protein:

  • Chicken breast

  • Turkey mince

  • Rib eye steak

  • Salmon

  • Eggs

  • Egg whites

  • Whey protein - Lean Whey by X50

Fats: 

  • MCT Oil

  • Avocado

  • Almonds

  • Macadamia Nuts

  • Almond butter

  • Natural peanut butter

  • Organic butter

Carbs: 

  • Sweet potato

  • Brown rice

  • Basmati rice

  • Rice cakes

  • Pulse Pasta

  • Rolled Oats

  • Frozen Blueberries

  • Banana

  • Pineapple

Veg: 

  • Broccoli

  • Cauliflower

  • Green beans

  • Red Capsicum

  • Carrots

  • Spinach

  • Tomatoes

I also like to buy fresh herbs such as parsley, basil and also rosemary to add to most meals for extra flavour!

Here are some of my tips that I use while in prep:

  • I always have a protein shake as a snack or post workout

  • I have 5-6 meals a day

  • Cook for 3-4 days in advance so that when reheating food its fresh

  • I try and base my protein and carb meals around my training

  • I drink around 3-4 litres of water a day

  • Stir fry veggies in coconut oil in one big batch and put in container to use with every meal.

  • Lemon, paprika and oregano is a great combo when cooking any proteins, and also on baked sweet potato

  • Lemon water is life - it cleanses your stomach acid and helps your body to detoxify.

  • Apple Cider Vinegar aids reflex and heart burn symptoms
