**WEIGHT CUT** The mechanisms of a good ACUTE weight loss are complex, but there are a few things you need to consider before eating your food the day before a competition.
1. Low carbohydrates: The days before the meet you want to deplete your glycogen. We have around 100g of glycogen in the liver and 200-400g of glycogen in the muscles (men with more muscles have more glycogen in store than small women). Depleting glycogen alone will take off around 2/3 of a pound. Not a lot at all. What is interesting is that for every gram of glycogen, you store 3 to 4 grams of water! This is the reason why you want to deplete glycogen. If you deplete 300g of glycogen, you are actually dropping around 1500 g of bodyweight which is already 3 pounds.
2. High fat: Since you are low carbs, you don’t necessarily want to drop your total calories intake too much. Therefore, food that are high in fats will usually be dense in calories. This means that you will eat a lot of calories, but those food don’t weight a lot in your gut (you don’t want your gut to be full of food because it’s extra weight that you are carrying). 3. Low sodium: At this point, you should have cut completely your sodium intake. If you’re eating a shit ton of sodium the day before the meet, you will retain water.
4. Low in fibers: Finally, you want your food to be low in fibers because fibers take longer to digest. Again, you don’t want to have food stock in your gut during your weight-in because it will add extra weight on the scale for absolutely no reason. BUT! At the same time, you still want to eat fibers because it will help you digest your food and therefore you need to shit to empty your gut!! I suggest you to take a fibers supplement during the day.
You should consider many other factors during your acute weight loss. This is a dangerous process if you don’t know how to do it properly. I suggest you consulting an health practitioner before doing it. Your health is more important than your total.
