Are there any bikini/sports model competitors out there? I would love to hear your comp tips and some challenges you have faced. I am in my first season of competition, i was fortunate enough to place 3rd at my first comp (ANB Sports Model division) however, i have struggled with my diet being low carb and my trainer (who is WELL RESPECTED in this industry) telling my to deplete 14 days out, i dod deplete a little and broke out in ulcers and cold sores, i then thought there has to be another way, so the last 4 weeks i have gone back to what i believe to be a healthy diet with carbs!!! I feel better and i think i look better than what i did last time around. I would love to hear your stories and your training regimes!!! I do cardio nearly everyday and im so over it!!!!
