URGENT... Need to cut 20 pounds by friday!

Ok, i've started but i'm wondering if i should lock myself in the sauna like in TUF 1 or if i should just keep on running and in the end do the whole sauna thing. I've cut weight before and i've cut this much but not in like 3 days lol.

Please don't give me the bs about how dangerous it is, i know how dangerous it is but i'm more concerned about cutting the weight then my health.

Ok any input you guys might have will help... thanks!

20 lbs. is alot but doable
Is weigh in on day before fight?
If it is follow this technique and you will be ok.
1) buy tub of abolene it opens up your pores and makes you sweat alot more.
2) Apply abolene to chest arm pits, inner thighs, stomach back, face ect
3)Warm up on a bike or treadmill just enough to break a good sweat
4) wrap head in heavy cotton towel,body in heavy cotton towel and then put towel over face while in sauna. Wear only this in sauna
5) sit in sauna in 15-20 min shifts. When out of sauna drink a little bit of lemon juice just to keep mouth from drying out.
6) srap self in cotton robe to stay warm
7) weigh self
8) repeat process
9) when lose weight and weigh in rehydrate with pedia lyte. I drink one ounce per pound lost drink it mixed with water and drink it slow I mix 2 ounces of PL with 4 ounces of water. Also I like to eat something with alot of water/juice in it like watermelon, mango or grapes right after i make weight.

If you follow this you should be ok it may take a while so be prepared but if you do it this way you wont be burnt up from a sauna suit or from running like a madman. YOu will need to rehydrate but that is easier than trying to regain energy lost running.
I usually get a massage in between sauna sessions by someone just to stay a little loose and relaxed but that is just me maybe like a 5 minute massage or something like that. I have lost 20 lbs. do this technique over a 8 hour time span and was fully recovered shortly after the weigh in it is a slow and gradual technique but it works better than most.

Ive seen a kid in the middle of class eating skittles and spitting out the juice into a cup. It was nasty but he had to drop weight for wrestling.
It worked, im not sure the effect but he lost weight and i think it made him not hungry.
Thats my imput

You should be able to find it in any drug store like walgreens or CVS or something similar to that it is a makeup remover. It comes in a blue and white tub the lid is royal the tub is plastic and is white. Hope that helps

Vilo, when you rehydrate do you take in really small amounts of fluid at a time or do you chug larger amounts? After I make weight I usually fill a shot glass with watered down gatorade or Pedialyte and take in multiple shots every minute or so. I know guys who will go running for the water and throw back a whole bottle but that method has always given me stomach aches.

small sips of pedia lyte so you absorb it...

i've done the sauna suit and it's hard man. you can do it, but it's hard...

when not wearing the suit, just keep spitting. if your mouth gets dry, chew something that makes your mouth water like sour candy but don't swallow it...

oh yeah, i went from 181 to 166 in 2 days...
