I'm going to have an amateur fight in ~4 1/2 weeks. I wrestled in high school at 160 and never had a problem making weight. I ate like shit, just whatever I wanted, lost the water weight, and made weight no problem. I'm fighting at 155, so I actually need to burn off the fat. I'm currently about 7 pounds over after a workout, so with some water lost, but I'm sure I could get out more. I'm actually working on a degree in exercise physiology, so it's kind of pathetic that I'm stuck asking, but so far all my classes haven't done anything as far as actual weight loss. Seems like everything they want to teach people is about 'feeling better, not watching a scale'. What I've been eating is roughly the same everyday, so I'll just post what I ate yesterday. The fruits/veggies change, but I don't like tuna. Breakfast - Orange, Oatmeal snack - fruit, graham cracker (?) Lunch - Grilled chicken, Grapes, carrots Dinner - Chicken, raw red peppers, brown rice snack - slice of cheese Lots of water and gatorade (relatively high in sugar, 2/3 that of Juice) I know if I just eat healthier in general I'll lose some weight. I definitely feel better having been eating this way, I'm just not sure if I'm eating right to actually lose weight. I've been looking at a lot of info here and it just seems like most the diets are a little to radical for my situation. Is what I am doing reasonable, or am I not going to get anywhere with this? I also have a question about pork - It's a little lower in protein than chicken, and a little higher in cholesterol, but is it still ok, or should I just stick to the chicken? (since don't like tuna). Any help is appreciated!
