Hey guys so I am entering a female bodybuilding competition (figure competition more feminine shape) for early November and I need some tips on what I should be doing as far as diet goes. I am doing IF currently, but I'm not sure it is right for me in this "competition" mode of training and dieting. I need advice! Should I be eating more meals? Should I not even think about fruit? Any other tips and tricks would be greatly appreciated! Just tell me everything you know!
I am currently 131 lbs 5'8" with about 16.8% bf Though this sounds low and I AM fairly thin, I am looking to build more muscle on my arms and back especially without adding fat around my midsection (which is where I tend to "hold" my fat)

Do heavy weight compound joint lifts with low repetitions and lots of rests. Eat a lot, and do not lift more than three times per week. Maybe once per week, do some HIIT or sprints, but don't do any slow cardio. That formula will set you up for the proper stimulus and hormonal response to grow muscle. Then about a month before the competition, cut your carbs fairly low to trim the bodyfat, but make sure to keep your protein high and continue lifting to preserve muscle mass.
