Yet another weight loss thread.

Alright here's a typical question. So here is my current set up. I've cut out all sugars from my diet (on occasion i'll eat cereal because I don't get enough milk), I eat small about every 3 hours and I drink roughly 4 liters of water a day. I exercise routinely, mostly weights and plyometrics with a decent amount of cardio which I am currently increasing. I just finished my freshman year of college which was absolute hell on my body. I actually shot up to about 180 and my weight going into the year was in the low 160s. I need to drop to a fighting weight of 155. Currently i'm at 170. I do not have a specific deadline as I am only training but I would like to be in the proper weight class before too long so I will be able to make the proper adjustments to the lost weight. My question is, if I switch to a more diet and cardio intensive schedule how much muscle mass will I be losing to make the drop? Should I be focused on maintaining muscle and losing weight or just cutting weight? Should I take the wrestling route?

Trainee has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Uh...are you trying to lose muscle weight or fat? If it's muscle...why do you want to fight at a lower weight class?
As to your question, sorry. I would give you advice, but I wouldn't want to mislead you, you know?

Right now it sounds like you're not going to be competing anytime soon so you want to continue building lean muscle while burning fat, which is the good way to lose weight.

When fight time comes around, one or two days before is when you actually start cutting weight, which is mostly water weight, but anytime you go into starvation mode you lose muscle, so you'll lose a tiny bit of muscle during your cutting days.

So basically, keep doing the weights, plyometrics, and cardio. Build yourself a very high metabolism. Then when your fight comes around, you do cardio in layers of clothes to lose water and eat SUPER TINY amounts of food such as almonds, spinach, or some type of protein. No salt, no sugar. Hope this helps.
