Water:
Shoot to drink 1 ½ to 2 gallons of water per day (important “Water helps you to get shredded”).


Sodium:
(use sea salt to salt your cooked food normally)

Carbs:

Starting this 2 weeks plan We are already assuming that you have visible abs line and not high BF%, however, If you're serious about looking your best, you should already be eating a low-carbohydrate diet of around 1/2 gram per pound of body weight per day leading up to the peak date. From day 12 to 7 The only time you'll be allowed real carbs is in the morning for breakfast and immediately after workouts with your post-workout protein shake (see meals plan below).


Meals:
Depending on your Macros and weight, here is a meal idea to show you the Protein and Carbs ratio in meals, as you notice we have carbs 2 times a day only (If you weigh more than 200 Ib and you have a very low body fat then you can add an extra meal)

• Meal 1
: 2 Eggs / 4oz lean Sirloin beef / 1 cup oatmeal or 1 cup of brown rice (your choice)

• Meal 2: 6oz Lean Turkey with Salad

• Meal 3: 6oz Chicken Breast / 5 oz • Work out time

• Meal 4: 2 scoops whey protein and 6 oz medium-size sweet potatoes (make it as a shake “delicious), take this meal immediately after working out.

• Meal 5: 8 oz Tilapia fish with salad.

• Meal 6: 5oz chicken with salad.
