Nice, you compete?! I too am an aspiring recreational competitor (somewhere between indifferent and seriously competitive, I guess?), albeit in powerlifting. Show diets can be a real pain... but I'm sure they're worth it in the end. Good luck on your show!
1) eat real food - more vegetables, moderate meat, moderate fruits, less grains, less sugar, less vegetable oils.
2) exercise - moderate intensity cardio, sprinting, heavy lifting, dedicated stretching and mobility.
3) live - relax, de-stress, meditate.
