    If he needs to do any physical activities and he goes carbless for all that time he's gonna fail from lack of energy and there is not time for his body and brain to switch to ketones for energy.

    I would suggest low carb yes but not no carbs. JMHO

    I would agree but first I guess we need to know when his PT testing would be. If its the same day then theres no way but I don't know when they normally do that.

    NickB when is your weigh in and your physical testing done?

    No physical training, but, to enlist you need to be a certain weight for your height . Im over by a couple pounds.

    It was that fuckin bulking i was doing. I put on 10 pounds, about 5 of muscle , 5 of fat.

    God.

    Im just going to start running 2-3 miles, low carbs, low cals.

    Should i do pushups/situps or no?

    I'd say:

    Friday = No carbs, 30g Protein/meal
    Saturday = No carbs, 30g Protein/meal
    Sunday = Carbs with first three meals, but only 25g/meal (oatmeal, or brown rice preferably)
    Monday= No carbs, 30g Protein/meal
    Tuesday = No carbs, 30g Protein/meal
    Wednesday = No carbs til the weigh in, 30g Protein/meal

    Supplement with BCAA's

    also skip the running until you weight yourself on monday morning, and see how the weight loss is going. Hopefully this will help you preserve some of that hard earned muscle.

    Just my $.02

How far you push through that barrier is the level of intensity with which you train." -- Twin Peak

    I would carb deplete as Funky said and then have one hell of a carb up after your weigh in.

    Also you need more than 30G of protein and you need fat. How much do you weigh?

    Also, I think you should do sessions of Traditional Cardio. Your just looking to drop weight fast so doing some extra TC say 30-45 mins at a time will help deplete your glycogen store and in turn make you drop more water. I do not think you should have any carbs other than your green veggies until your carb up after the weigh on. Once I know your weight and your desired weight to enlist we can come up with something more structured for you.
