Yeah, they're really cool about letting people bring stuff into the expo. Our hotel is near a Meijer, so we usually hit that up Thursday night and then bring our food in every day.

There is a K-rogers(krogers) right down high street(north of expo center), about 20 blocks, I'm not sure COTA would let you take a cooler on the bus though, I'd have to check.

Vinny gave me pointers the last few times since i traveled with food to the Olympia and the Arnold ..

Once you land go to the food store and get the bags of tuna .. pre packaged, pre drained, just eat right out of the bag. Good stuff, light and easy. Powders and shakers as well as single serve microwave rice.

Dont worry, resisting the "treats" at the expo is easy when you look at the prices.

There is a mediterranean place at North Market which is across the street from the convention center on the High street side. It's called Firdous Express. It is awesome and the owner is a bodybuilder so everything is fresh and clean. We killed the salads there last year while on our contest prep. We also brought a cooler which carried our egg whites (boiled) and tilapia so hope this helps.

I'd love to try the powerlifting diet, instead of this tilapia and rice I'm currently choking down... *LOL*

Too true... I worked the Emerald Cup, with Rage, last year, and was floored by the prices, just at that...

Bring a George Foreman to your hotel room, cook chicken in bulk, bring with you in a cooler.
Eat oats raw with water, or eat rice cold (pre-cooked in room) or pre cook your oats in your room, and just eat them cold.

Or dont worry about eating, because we are going to bury you in the cage this year.. you forgot :)?

*LOL* Dude... You know how long it's been since I had White Castle...??? And, as far as sushi... When I'm in bulking mode will have to hit up a sushi bar, together... I can do some damage...

Meh... I'm used to cold food... Still better than some of the MRE's I had to choke down, when I was on active duty... And, BTW... For me to be buried, there has to be a "Casket Match"...

This is a great thread.

I started a clean bulk with Rage's guidance. I was a little concerned on how I should get in my many meals for the weekend. I am allowed a cheat meal or 2...not a cheat weekend. I will do my best. I am gonna bring down some already cooked chicken (got a hotel with a fridge and kitchen) and some of those Uncle Ben's 90 sec Brown Rice packs.

Bodybuilding has definitely taught me how to eat my food cold and plain when necessary. By the way when we cooked the fish to bring last year, we left it on the broiler a little longer so it was slightly hard and crunchy, put them in baggies and ate them like jerky...LOL!

Honestly, Chicken in Bulk, Cook up rice in your room in the microwave, and you can make oats in the morning with hard boiled eggs (Bring the eggs with you and store in fridge) (following rages cutting diet i know thats his first meal) Should not be bad at all. Just bring a nice little cooler to keep in the cage, and your set. You can have some Iso-Whey shakes on hand if you want or get from the box.

Chuck never diets with me. It is harder when someone in your house eats lots of junk! I sympathize.
