Cutting Weight

Any advise on how to recover fastest after you make weight? I know there are a lot of options out there such as Gatorade, Powerade, Cytomax, Rapid Rehydration, tap water...etc. Anyone have any suggestions?

chicken breast, gatorade, plenty of water. Whatever you do don't eat whatever you feel like eating, I did that after my first weight cut and suffered during my fight!

I've heard that pedialyte (sp?)is good but haven't tried it personally. Does anyone have experience using it post weight cut?

Pedialyte works well, but it tastes like death and has too much sugar. that is the problem with other sports drinks too, they have too much sugar. Too much sugar makes it harder for your body to rehydrate.
I've tried Rapid Rehydration,(www.rapidrehydration.com, and it works. It is basically like pedialyte except it doesn't tasate like crap and it has less sugar.
Also, don't eat chicken breasts or other heavy protien rich foods right after making weight. Simple, carbohydrate rich foods like oatmeal and other cereals are absorbed faster into your body and is what your body really neads.

hi guys,,,
Shredding weight is not an easy task.It is a constant effort and not a magic.I advice you the following in this regard.
Commit yourself first
Eat less and healthy
Increase the amount of liquid intake
Make a routine of exercise

When I cut, I normally rehydrate something like this (and it's what I'll be doinhg next week!):

-Slowly sip 2L of water with 2 sachets of diarolyte/pedialyte. Break a couple of bananas into chunks and eat in bits.
-Have a protein and carb/MRP shake ready, with creatine and get that down.
-Have another 2L bottle of the above ready to go and keep drinking it, but now start with some small portions of wholemeal pasta/rice cakes/brown rice with a bit of veg and a protein source.
-With this done and small meals at about 30min intervals, and a few hours after hitting the scales, then you can begin to eat bigger portions of regular food and good carbs.
-Pig out, but make sure you're getting plenty of fluids in until your urine is clear...and then some.

This is with a water and carb depletion cut day before weigh-in, not a same day weigh-in.

cutting weight

hi all, i am suggesting 2 independent ways for weight cutting.
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
