Bodybuilding competitions require a certain level of physical and mental discipline. Have you been to a show? Before you even begin the hard journey, find the nearest local show and check it out. Look around... in the audience alone should be a level of bodybuilders with great physiques. Watch the category you want to compete in. Interesting Huh?
One other note that is very, very important - I have gone to many shows since 1988 when I started, and there is always one constant, the individual who is on stage that everyone in the audience is laughing at. I'm sorry about being straight, but "competitive" bodybuilding is NOT what most think bodybuilding is.
You should NOT get on stage just because you dieted - it is "crucial" that your physique actually be ready for stage presentation. Bodybuilding competition is NOT for the individual who just finished their "Biggest Loser" trek and thinks that's a good reward or the individual who has only lifted for one month and gets up there with those trying to be a "real" bodybuilder.
1. Change your lifestyle.
When you go on a "program" to lose body fat, you may set yourself up for failure. A program implies an endpoint, which is when most people return to their previous habits. If you want to lose fat and keep it off, make changes that you can live with indefinitely. Don't over-restrict calories, and find an exercise program that adequately challenges you, provides progression and offers sufficient variety so that you can maintain it for years to come.
2. Drink more water.
Water is the medium in which most cellular activities take place, including the transport and burning of fat. In addition, drinking plenty of calorie-free water makes you feel full and eat less. Drink at least 1 ounce of water per 2 pounds of bodyweight a day (that's 100 ounces for a 200-pound person). Keep a 20-ounce water bottle at your desk, fill it five times a day, and you're set.
While there is no accurate timetable to seeing results you can generally feel results happening on day one. Are you sore? Results are coming. Are you hungry? Ditto. As your body adapts to exercise, you are making internal changes, meaning results are on the way. Your body will resist the change. That's because its natural defense (law of homeostasis) is to protect the state it's in, even if that state is unhealthy. Its response to this is to fight it with hormonal releases. How well it adapts varies with every single individual, which is why we are constantly advising people not to look at their scale all the time and, instead, trust measurements and pictures. Some people start seeing results in a few days. Others may take many weeks. And none of that matters because the healthy lifestyle will always win in the end. If you keep at it, train hard, and eat well, your body will—absolutely, as it has no choice—change over time. Stay consistent for long enough and you'll look like a Greek statue. It's a physiological law.
Tip #1 -
Allow your child to play with her food.
Yes, you heard me right. Trying something new can be a challenge to small children. Allow them to use all their senses to explore new and sometimes strange fruits and vegetables. Let him hold the kiwi and treat it as a ball before you cut it and let him eat the green inside. Let her pretend to color with the celery stick before she tries it.
Tip #2 -
Encourage your child to be creative with their food.
Make fruit salad into a smiley face. Use two grape halves as the eyes, a strawberry half as the nose and an orange slice as the mouth. Try ants on a log. If the child is over two, place peanut butter on a banana that has been sliced lengthwise. Sprinkle raisins over the sticky peanut butter to represent the ants. You can also replace the banana with a celery stick.
Tip #3 -
Read stories to your children about food.
This age group loves to spend time listening to their parents read to them. Take advantage of this. Not only will this help their cognitive abilities but can also help them to try healthy foods.
Trying to introduce a protein rich egg, read Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss.
Oliver's Vegetables, Rabbit Food or any Veggie Tales book is great while introducing new vegetables.
Alligator Arrived with Apples or Oliver's Fruit Salad helps to get new fruit down. You may even want to play the game Hi, Ho Cherrio, too.
Wanting your little one to like whole grains, try If You Give A Pig A Pancake, If You Give A Moose A Muffin or The Little Red Hen.
Exercise is not a process that needs be eschewed or prevented during pregnancy," says Dr. John Botti, director of maternal-fetal medicine at Penn State Geisinger Health System, who studied the effects of exercise on moderately conditioned pregnant women. "Reasonably performed exercise doesn't appear to cause harm, and may, in fact, have benefits."
The key is finding a reasonable level, and that depends largely on the shape you were in before, the activities your body was comfortable with, and your health during pregnancy. Always check with your doctor or midwife first, but here's food for thought for the novice and the enthusiast, as well as some basic dos and don'ts.

"Only 20% to 30% of the population exercises on a regular basis, so the typical pregnant woman hasn't exercised prior to pregnancy," says Bonnie Berk, creator of MOTHERWELL, a pre- and postnatal fitness program offered throughout the United States and abroad.
Still, it's not too late for pregnant women who haven't been consistent exercisers to start now. Although hard data on the value of prenatal exercise isn't as well-documented for unfit women as for fit ones, experts like Berk have seen firsthand the difference that exercise can make, even for couch potatoes.

As far as the amount of carbohydrates your body requires, this will vary from person to person depending on a number of things (age, weight, height, body type, activity level, job, sleep etc). As far as eliminating them completely, whether in a bulking, fat loss, sports conditioning phase I would NEVER do that. Carbohydrates are essentially your bodies primary source of fuel, if you restrict carbohydrates for a long duration(2-3+) there is an immense possibility for your body to enter a catabolic state, meaning your muscle cells have been depleted of glycogen, and you are tapping into your muscle storage for energy.
One method to work with is carbohydrate cycling, this is when you lower your carb intake for up to 2-3 days MAX and then refeed again after that to maintain an anabolic state(hypertrophy and fat loss).
Personally I do not carb cycle anymore, I utilzing a method called "carbohydrate timing", where you eat a large amount of carbs at the correct time of the day(morning, pre workout, post workout) rather then at night or other times during the day where it is not required and may be stored as fat.
