Some questions

Alright I got a fight coming up Nov 10. I'm 5'7 and weighing at around 155 right now. Im fighting in 145. Heres my usuall diet/ workout routine.

Wake up at around 7am,take my supplements with a bottle of water. Get to the gym around 8:30 or so. Usually do a 6mile jog at 6.5-7(go up every min .1 till 7 then back down to 6.5 till I have my 6miles). Then I do my weightlifting which is usually alot of high reps lower weight. Then I hit the bag as hard as I can working on combos for 3 sets of 5. Then if I feel up to it I usually do some more cardio.

Leave the gym and head to work eating a protein bar with good protein/carbs. Get to work and usually eat a whole wheat turkey sandwhich when I get there or for lunch.

Go home and eat dinner which is always a semi decent healthy meal. Then I put my sweats/garbage bag/tabagon and jump rope at 80% speed for 3 sets of 5/ if I dont do that Im doing sparring with one of my friends at the gym.

Now I just need some advice on how to cut weight better. I was cutting from 165 to 145 and im slowing down alot at 154-155. I know I still have around 24 days but I do not want to not make weight =).

Also gimme advice on diet if you want.

OK out of curiousity do you have a wrestling background like high school or college? if so you could pull the straight up sauna the day before with the plastic suit....but im not exactly convinced that that is smart or safe....but it does work.....hit the exercise bike cut carbs and sugar...if you drop bread out of your diet youd be surprised at how much empty calories it is...

I wrestled 12 years...lol I know how to cut. Which is why im posted here because im actually having trouble cutting which is not something im used to.

But yeah if im still cutting it very close, ill do that lol.

Edit: But i cant find anything to fill in for my stone ground whole wheat/turkey sandwhiches. I have a very busy life and that is just the easiest/healthiest thing to make for me that I can think of.

Would be adding a protein shake in for the sandwiches help?

Protein shake maybe....Slim fast has nutrients and not much in the way of the excess...Have you tried meal replacement bars..GNC has some good ones ....

add some protein to breakfast
you are wasting money (in my opinion) on supplements
get some carbs after your workout as well
just eat at 3-4

could drink more water
could add more fruits & vegetables
milk is calorie rich but no satiety
eat more frequently - smaller meals (so small you'd normally consider them snacks)
add some flax seed oil to your diet. take a tbsp with the bed meal and another one with some other meal

you need GREEN VEGGIES!!!
some fruit wouldn't hurt either- mangoes, bananas, papaya, dates, etc. dont eat a lot of citrus, but eat some.
the green veggies (like broccoli, spinach, leafy lettuce) supply more iron than red meat (unless you're eating ostrich, which I doubt), broccoli (and corn) are good sources of leutine- a naturally occurring carotenoid- which has antioxidant properties and can help sustain and promote good vision. antioxidants are important if you work out more than 3-4 days a week as they play a role in cellular preservation and reconstruction. what that means is quicker recovery time after workouts- generally speaking.

other than adding fruits and veggies i'd say you have a pretty good regimen set up.

oh- depending on what time of protein you use, you might do well to have a shake before and/or after your workouts. even half a shake would be good- especially if your protein uses a combo of isolates, concentrates, etc. just a thought.
