I’m doing a meet on Saturday June 2nd, and I am weighing right around 206-208 at days end with normal eating (400-500 carbs). To make my weight class I’m going to have to weigh in at no more than 198.5. 24 Hour weigh ins apply in the APF so I would weigh in at 198.5 @ 10AM the day BEFORE the meet (Friday).
So 2 Things.
1.) I am considering doing something very similiar to the V-Diet and real food carb cycling starting 3 DAYS before weighins. I want to follow the Chad Waterbury apporach for cutting and depleting carb stores in my body.
That basically consists of 6-7 meals a day of 4-6oz of lean meat and a green low carb vegetable and high fat intake and keep my water intake normal. I hope two days of that will get my glycogen and coupled water levels down a bit early. I would start this on Monday morning and end this on Wednesday night.
Thursday morning I would begin an all liquid diet consisting of muscle milk and water and flaxseeds with minimal water and play my water intake by ear. I may also use some metamucil to remove a bit more water and “weight”. I may only get about 2-3 meals in before cutting all eating and all water until weigh ins on Friday morning.
2.) After weigh ins, I’m going to bring the big bloat. I have consume a ton of water and calories and jack my salt intake up. I’m considering doing what I did before in my previous carb up but with better carb sources and a few eatings in resturants.
Anyone have expirence with bringing the bloat?
