damn isn't the season in a few months, when i used to wrestle my diet was water and vitamin pills, HAHAAHHA


anyways I think any cutting diet would be fine, CKD or something.

well, 206 and 197 is pretty close enough, you probably don't need to lose any weight. u can easily lose that much in a day. for me, i wrestled 103s at 120, and 119s at 135. i usually don't make weight til 2 days before meets and tourneys (130>119 in 2 days) and the thing is, some ppl drop more weight than i do!

This really isn't the way to go if you have time. If you're spot on for time, as PK is, then you know what you have to do as a wrestler. Otherwise, like was suggested before, try some cutting diets. What level are you competing in? NCAA (197 lb class)? If so, then you have time. Barring your summer freestyle and greco, of course.

I've seen many a championship lost by superior wrestlers because they were too messed up from dropping 15, 20, 25 lbs for tourneys.

Also remember, if you're wrestling NCAA then ephedrine is banned. tuttut

borris, you have a point; i've lost a lot of matches where i made too much weight.
however,he is 200lbs, losing 10lbs is less than 5% body mass. the best thing is just to strength train, and enough weight should shed off. in addition, wrestling practice (before any meets or tourneys) is really good cardio, i lose a lot of weight when i joined early in the season. i'm just saying, just work on strenght right now, and not worry too much about it.
