Help me please!!! I have my first fight on the the 3rd, and I need to weigh in at 160 on the 2nd. I started losing weight at 176 on the 5th of January, that's when I found out I was fighting. I am on a diet/routine that looks like this. wake up, 1 hard boiled egg, 1 cup of coffee, 1 teaspoon sugar. then, run either 3 miles in 22.5 minutes @ 3% incline, or 30 mins 25m swim sprints, with 30 sec to 1- minute rest at either end, or 2 miles of interval sprinting/jogging, 100m sprint, 100m jog, etc. eat 2 more hard boiled eggs, 1 piece whole wheat toast with butter, some turkey bacon or small piece of steak. protein shake 3 scoops. drink water, rest, etc. eat a grapefruit around 2 in the afternoon, couple slices of turkey breast, more water rest eat spinach salad (spinach, red peppers, tomato, cucumber) with can of tuna and nofat dressing train 2 hours kickboxing drink protein shake go to bed. If I am hungry, I will eat a couple of nuts here and there, or a piece of cheese, or no fat yogurt. Anyway, I lost 6 lbs really fast, like in 4 days, and now I am stuck here, have been for the last week almost. I don't know if I should eat less, or less protein, or more cardio in the AM, or what. I am pretty worried, because it doesn't look like I'm gonna make this weight class, or I will have to sweat off like 12lbs to do it, and have no energy. My weight goes from 168-172, with no rhyme or reason at all. I was told to cut out as many carbs as possible, and do this routine daily, which I do. I also lift 2-3 times a week, but mainly a circuit routine, not heavy so I don't put on mass. Should I run for longer, at a lower rate? I heard this burns fat better than running really hard like I do, but I also need to up the cardio for the fight...so I am confused. I just don't want to cut 12lbs in a day, and have no gas and get beat. It's my first fight, and I don't have experience cutting like some folks with wrestling backgrounds do. I'm 5'7" with a muscular build, but some fat as well, that ain't going anywhere, even though I am getting more defined and my cardio is getting a LOT better. please, please help me.
