dude, just take a deep breath before you go in the main purpose of the interview is to get a sense of your characterjust answer honestly, but keep your answers simple do not get long winded which is what I think my problem was. keep it sweet and simple. you should do fine.

Pro fighters dehydrate their bodies only long enough for the weigh ins. As soon as they're officially weighed in, they eat up and rehydrate themselves. That's why some people fighting at 170 can sometimes was 180-190 during the actuall fight.

actually what you want to do is eat a lot. you shouldnt starve yourself because that destroys muscle. you want to be eating a lot of protein (baked chicken/salmon/oats) and doing a lot of cardio. protien supplies strength and engergy to your workouts and muscle. also it burns faster than other foods so it will slim you down. stay away from salt tho because it retains water increasing your water weight. cardio 5 times a week at 60% heart rate will put your body in fat burn mode. more than that and its just heart conditioning. go to the sauna once a week for 15-20 minutes. also you should take fish oil pills. they can be bought at any wal-mart or cvs. the oils in it actually makes you lose fat by increasing fat oxidation. keep it up bro and you'll be at your target weight, bro

The Original Poster wondered how to lose weight fast, what you're proposing won't make the person lose weight but gain weight (depending on how much you eat and how big you normally are). The amount of time that the fighter doesn't eat (he shouldn't starve himself because that can slow the metabolism and prevent maximum weight loss) but eats a lot and then a few days before the weigh in, he should start the process of cutting weight (which was mentioned before). Also, I don't buy into that "Fat burning heart rate". If you do more intense cardio, you'll burn more calories which will help you lose more weight.

I have been a police officer for 10 years now. I have always been into fitness and staying in shape since I was 18 years old. I am currently 39 years old. Let me give you some good advice. Dont be concerned with losing weight. I have been involved in hundreds of altercations of the years and let me tell you that muscle and strength are WAY more assests to have as an officer than endurance. Now that does not mean to give up on your cardio but my advice is to stay at a solid 215 rather than to drop down to an average 185lbs. You will find that being able to take someone to the ground with weight and stength will be more beneficial.
