So I read this article on making weight: http://www.elitefts.com/documents/making_weight.htm
I’ve also been asking around with people I know on how to make weight and the consensus is pretty much drink about 2 gallons of water the week leading up to the meet, cut it off the night before weigh in, and in the morning you should be fine.
Also the article says eat super clean the week of the meet, drink green tea, eat a lemon after cutting off water, etc.
My meet is the 27th. I am hovering at about 200lbs give or take half a lb (morning post dump) and I want to be 198. The trouble that I noticed was that my normal water intake is actually pretty close to 2 gallons already, if not more. Should I go for 3-4 gallons or is there a point of diminishing returns?
As far as methods go, I’m thinking I might get a gallon jug for the day and carry it around with me for class, and then have a gallon at home in my fridge. Thoughts?
Also, if it helps, I’ve been on a 40pro/30fat/30carb split for the past 6 weeks, with about 2900 total calories, and I’ve gone from 208 to where I am now. I fucked up a little this week because I was travelling around, but next week I’ll be on point.
