Immediately weigh in and begin drinking fluid mix of Pedialyte, Gatorade, HBCD, Sodium, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc, Creatine, BCAA, Glycerin. 3 gallons through out day. Atleast 1 full gallon BEFORE ever touching food. If you begin eating before your get fluid in you then your stomach and intestines will not digest and move the food near well enough and you will have a almost impossible time getting the food in. Shooting for 1000g of carbs, 15g of Sodium. Fat kept moderate.
