I am 3 weeks out from my competition do I have to cut fiber from my diet due to water retention?

you don't need to cut fiber. because you will cut your carbs. the last few day before the show and carb load the day before. So if you might use fiber the day before. At least this is what I do. You wont retain a lot water.

Don't you plan to dry up before?

At 3 weeks out, fiber is still very important. Spinach is a great addition, kidney or black beans are also. Any leafy green veggie is acceptible.
