What's some input as to what I should be putting on my plate to eat the week of a meet.. as well as that morning of the show and what to take as the meet progresses along?...bodyweight isn't a issue as I am in the 275 class.
eat what you'd normally eat. If you are trying to get a good bloat for the meet after weigh ins I'm a big fan of chicken broth, or chinese food and gatorade.
I like to get a good bit of red meat the night before and make sure to eat something decent the morning of, but I do that before an heavy day so I know how my body will react to it, if it'll make me bloated, gassy, groggy etc...

Gym PR's... don't count ... time to do another meet!
the night prior to meet day, I like a nice cut NY steak with potatoes and some form of veggies. The following morning I have oatmeal, banana, eggs and gatorade. Plenty of water is important as well.
I'm eating like crazy this last week before my meet, I have about 5 pounds to spare. I think its going to help me quite a bit at the meet
Sweet potatoes are good during a meet, as well as gatorade
