Alot of the guys I work out wit swear by the "caveman diet", google it for details as I'm personally not that familiar with it.

What has worked for me is this.
1) drink 1-2 gal of water to flush everything out of your system
2) SMALL PORTIONS for your diet. 6 meals/day. Eat every 2 hours, again, small portions - hungry is good. Take a multi- vitamin to ensure your getting all nutrients. I eat at 8, 10, 12,2,4, 6-7. Protein shakes take the place of a meal.
3) Eat NOTHING after 6PM
4) In addition to your normal workout routine, do an extra 30 min of cardio on a treadmill or eliptical.
5) NO SALT - cut it where you can

This should get you pretty close if you're disciplined and don't cheat. All of this should increase your overall metabolism which will help you burn more calories.

Good luck in your competition.

Thanks man. I was at 145 as of last night. 146 after breakfest this morning. I only need to get down to 145, so I figure between a week of diet (small portions, cutting carbs, protein shakes, high fiber) that I will be able to get close. I can sweat out the rest the day of the weigh in.

I am doing the extra cardio as well.

Thanks a lot for the well wishes. I will have video up when it's done.


Any tips on how to properly rehydrate?

StuLeyland has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Drink water constantly throughout the day in small forms. Mouth fulls at all times, anything to drastic will cause your digestive to react quicker or differntly. If everything is kept consistant the build up of hydration will increase meaning your body will adapt and you will stay hydrated.

Drink a mouth full of water every 5/10 minutes throughout the day. Bigger portions with meals and maybe completely skimmed milk so more nutrients are added etc.
