    I have a upcoming grappling competition tomorrow. I'm currently doing the Anabolic Diet and I'm on no carbs on weekdays. My weight class is -80kg and I'm under that without carbs (~79 vs 83 with carbs).

    But my question now is; After the weigh-in, should I carb up or not?
    And if not, is there any point in trying to eat anything big at all (My eating on no carb-days is intermittent fasting-inspired, so I usually don't eat before 4pm and the competitions start at 12)?

    I have only been doing the Anabolic Diet for one week (this is my second carb up weekend). Last weekend I did feel kind of slow and sluggish, but nothing super bad.

    Hope for some quick answers (so I know 'til tomorrow :D )

    Carbs are OK just do it in moderation. Do what works for you.

    Over eating before a competition is never a good idea. I've thrown up on a ref's shoes back in high school and learned the hard way.

    Lots of small portions are the key to success. You shouldn't be hungry or full before a competition.
