Method 1 - Dieting. This is the gradual reduction in weight through dieting (usually taking anywhere from 1 week to several months).
Although rapid weight loss through dieting can be harmful to health if it is too severe or if you have some pre-existing medical conditions, it isn't as dangerous as the next method...

Method 2 - Dehydration. This is the more rapid loss of weight via limiting water intake, exercising, sauna suits and saunas: here most of the weight comes off in the last 24 to 48 hours.

These two methods aren't completely independent: they are often used together, with dehydration preceding dehydration. Furthermore even if you are only dehydrating (method 2) you still have to watch and manipulate aspects of your diet to avoid retaining water. One critical difference, however, is that given long enough between the weigh-in and the competition you can gain back almost all the weight lost due to dehydration, albeit with possible impairment of athletic function.
thanks all
Dehydration works well if you know how to do it safely (i.e. plastic suits, sauna, excersice, but NOT diuretics or laxatives- those are very unsafe and dangerous) Rapid Rehydration puts the water back into you body faster and better than anything else on the market short of an IV. Check it out

Reduction of weight is not easy if you are food lover, or
least interested in exercise, you have to prepare for the exercise.
