    lol

    4 lbs in a month in a half will be easy as pie

    if you're really dedicated, you could easily drop 10-15

    Where did you come up with this number of 4lbs?

    The reason I ask is poeple pay too much attention to the scale and losing weight rather than changing their body composition which could be losing 4 lbs of fat and gaining 6lbs of muscle, hence the end result is a net gain of 2lbs, but a drastic difference in composition.

    The number 4 comes from the number of pounds I need to drop a weight class in wrestling

    I'd suggest after the workout skipping the protein bar and having a whey protein shake instead.

    Would also skip the milk before bed, if you can drink it around lunch time instead probably.

    Dont make your last meal your biggest meal of the day... generally better to stack it higher on the protein side, lower on the carb side and some fats would be good.

    I'm not sure if you are in high school or something and always busy, bit perhaps if possible throw in a snack between breakfast and lunch. Vegetables (cut up carrots, brocolli, etc), and a light protein source. If thats not possible then use that time period to pound some serious water.

    As far as water... I'd drink enough at meals to help the food go down, but if you're going to be drinking a liter at a time I'd recommend waiting a little while after your meals before doing so. Wont dilute the stomach acids so much while it is working on your meal, and will also hopefully keep you from feeling super bloated.

    Anyways, I'm sure there are a million tips to losing wieght. Good luck on dropping to the next weight class, it shouldnt be hard. And tell us how it goes!

    This is a great point that Prince brings up. I think going by the scale is ridiculous. Use body composition as a way to gauge your results. Just look in the mirror and see if you are getting leaner. When I diet I really try and concentrate on staying the exact same weight and just tightening up/leaning out. Obviously, when in a caloric defecit some weight loss is going to occur but I try and minimize it as much as possible. The only thing that the scale is good for is leting you know if you are losing weight to fast (catabolization of muscle probably) or gaining weight to fast when bulking (ie adding to much fat).

    I agree totally what your saying. I do not normally care about a scale at all, but like you said, muscle to fat percentage. Wrestling classes should be done by bodyfat %.

    Ah, now that is different. You didn't say that you need to lose weight to make a weight class in wrestling. That is different. IN my opinion, you can drop 4 lbs of water really easily, if that is all you need to lose to make weight. Then just eat after your weigh in to gain some water back, then kick some ass.

    oh, in that case just do not drink water or eat much for around 8 hours before your meet.

    Good Advice Prince, but wouldn't I be messed up during the match even If I ate and drank before the weigh in?

    I was being sarcastic, however from my experience in wrestling it's very unhealthy and they force you to get down to lower weight classes by losing water and LBM.

    My initial advice in this thread was based on losing fat from a fitness standpoint, not losing weight to meet a weight class for wrestling, so please disregard my posts.

    Lots of cardio and no food. You'll lose muscle and fat, but who cares right?
