As you most likely already know, I use a high protein, high fat, no carb diet for contest prep. I stumbled upon this approach a few years ago when a carb-cycling approach wasn't working for me. My diet allows me to eat a variety of lean proteins and fat sources.
I, however, am very lazy. So I basically eat about 4 different foods. And that's it.
My main source of protein is ground turkey. The fat content of the turkey, and the extra ingredients I add when I cook it vary, depending on how my body is responding to the diet. J watches how my body responds, and makes adjustments as necessary.

All together, it takes me about an hour to cook and portion my food for the whole week. Granted, there's very little variety in my diet, but I actually like it like that. It's very easy to figure out the root of any issues I may have, and my body is trained to process those foods like a machine.
In the off-season, I don't eat much differently; however, I do like to experiment with some different recipes. And I LOVE to bake!
For all you competitors, what's your diet like? Do you like to experiment with new prep-friendly recipes? What seasonings and spices (if any) do you use?
