Hi guys, I am new to this site but I know its the place to be for good advice. My question is, I need to drop 8 lbs. before a competition and unfortunately the weigh-in is the same day as the competition. Any advice on what to eat and drink after the weigh-in? Thanks guys

Is this a PL meet? We have 2 hr weigh inns so i am used to this, I just usually don't need 8lbs to drop lol.....anyway......... Depending on ur body weigh 8# should be cake. You should at least now be drinking 1gal of water a day. The week before bump it to at least 1.5gal. The day before meet cut water intake after lunch to just sips when/if you need it. Also simply reduce your meals to one maybe two depending after luch as well. I usually stick w/ some carbs & red meat.

Wake up next morning and weigh in and then smash lots of fluids and complex carbs.....Lift BIG.

Also 30 mins in a hot tub or 15 in a sauna is gonna drop ya like 2-3# as well. Use these if you need to drop another few puonds before bedtime night of meet.

Good luck
