    In my latest fight, I used the weight cutting thread and easily made weight. The only thing is that I am quite small for welterweight (walking around at like 175). I have plans to bulk up, so that I can compete strength wise with the heavier guys in my category (one guy cuts from 194) and my question is how does cutting change?

    Do you follow the same clean diet, lose the carbs 1 or 2 weeks before, and you should still be able to avoid the sauna? Or if you're gonna cut from say 185 or above down to 170, is the sauna or some form of induced sweating unavoidable?

    For the record, I am 5'9, 175 lbs, about 9-12% bodyfat in my hydrated state, active, yada yada. I wanna be 185 lean but don't want to run into huge problems cutting it for the first time.
