I would like to look my best for a beach event I'm attending in about a week. What should my diet be in order for me to look more cut than I do now.
Right now I'm 5"8 and 177lbs with about 14% bf. I know some body builders used diuretics to cut out some water, I've had some success with this just by cutting out water the day before and drinking coffee to get ride of some water.

Are there any other things I can do for this one day event?
Thanks!!!

if youre trying to cut in 1 week, you should watch late night informercials and im sure you could by a solution for a few easy payments of 29.95

might also want to cut your sodium

Normally when you cut for a "show," you plan well in advance. Trying to lose too much weight in one week is potentially unhealthy. Don't worry too much about it, and go have fun.

at 14% i doubt much of anything will happen visually in a week even if you did get rid of excess water...

I agree, also just cutting out water won't make you look leaner, it will most likely make you look small and flat.

14% is kind of a guess. I do have definition in my abs, you can see about 4 out of a six pack.

Here's an old pic of me. I'm a bit bigger in the chest now though. But bf is about the same.

You won't be leaning out in any visible terms in 1 week. You should've planned like a month ahead, that would be a more realistic time frame.

You could try a UD2 approach for 1 week. I can't think of anything else that would work better.
