As maybe a half dozen of you MIGHT know, I have my first BJJ tournament in ~2 1/2 weeks. I recently reread the weight "cutting" section, in order to insure I do everything properly in preparation to make weight. Here's the skinny (quite punny). -I weigh ~150# right now (full stomach, plenty hydrated, etc.) -I'm competing at <140# -I have >3 hours between weigh-in and competing (meaning according to Berardi, I cut can a bit more than 4#, and still be able to refuel, no? I know, I know, just another cutting weight thread, but this one is oddly specific, therefore, I am special. for the tl;dr'ers. The comp is on the 26th. 4/09-4/23: everything clean, more veggies, low on beef, eggs and milk 4/23: Water intake upped to 2-3gallons/day, extra fiber, and if absolutely necessary, Dandelion Root tea. At this point I need to weigh about 145, right? The extra water is to make my body overcompensate and flush without needing to touch a sauna, etc. Extra fiber to clear GI waste. Dandelion Root as a gentle laxative to do the same. 4/24: Water intake dropped to 1 gallon. Around 143#, right? 4/25: Little water, making weight. Please correct anything you see fit. If it appeases the mods, by all means move this to another forum/thread. Thanks in advance!
