    Yes, assuming you are not a troll, you can get most of the answers there.

    I would say though, cutting 25 lbs in 2 weeks for a 155'er as a first time cut is not adviseable.

    Even on a 2000/day calorie defecit, which would make training extremely difficult if not impossible, you are still going to lose only 8 lbs in 2 weeks, which means you are still going to need to 'cut' 17 lbs of water weight. That is really just not practical. You would be in no condition to compete after that, even in the highly unlikely event you could pull it off.

    Pros Guide To Cutting Weight <--- Suggestion: I think this thread or else the other weight cutting thread linked in the FAQ should get it's own sticky. There's like 10 of these threads a week.
