Don't have much time with classes starting, but I will write a powerlifters guide for water cutting over the weekend, since I have experience with same day and day before weigh ins, as well as reading material on it.

Dieting last minute only depletes muscle strength and performance, and fat burners, diuretics,etc.. have a lot possible side effects that are unnecessary. All you need is a vinyl sauna suit, a sauna or shower to hot box yourself in, as well as bananas and pedialyte, as well as water, gatorade, and gatorade propel, so one can rehydrate.

for a friday afternoon weigh in, you want to start on monday, drink 3+ gallons of water and salt load with a normal diet. you want to try to retain as much water as possible and get your weight bloated up 3-5lbs. tuesday similar amounts of water and salt.
wednesday you want high salt but not as much as on monday/tuesday, still lots of water.
thursday cut the salt out completely and drink about 1 gallon of water, don't eat anything, or if you do make sure it is salt free and protein heavy. the weight of the food is more important than the calories.
check your weight thursday night, if you're very very close you can have a small (4-6oz of water) protein shake.

if you still have a few pounds to go friday morning, you can do heat sessions. 10 minutes submerged in a bathtub with hot as you can stand water. then 15 minutes with the shower running to create a steam sauna. after 25 minutes in the heat, take 5 minutes out of the bathroom to cool down a bit (to avoid stroking out) towel off all the excess water and sweat and salt standing on your skin and check weight.

you should be able to lose about 1.8-2.5lbs per hour at the beginnning, as you get drier you'll slow down your weight loss. if you get very close you can use sour candy to stimulate saliva production and spit out the last pound or so of water.

once you get off the scale after making weight officially, you need to rehydrate immediately, now since you haven't eaten for about 20 hours you'll need to be careful you don't make yourself sick.
we generally rehydrate immediately after stepping off the scale with pedialyte. 1-2 liters of pedialyte, then gatorade diluted with water (1:1).

then start eating salty foods with high carbs, you want to restore your glycogen levels and restore your body's water content to bloat back up to your normal weight to make your gear fit correctly.

good luck.

tony is dead on. you don't have time to mess with dieting at this point because truly if you wanted to shed simply the water weight you should have already been increasing sodium and water so you could deplete it out last week to suck you dry. your gonna have to rely on the hot box and what i did for my meet in dec was sat in it 5 days in a row at around 130 degrees losing 2-3 pounds a day instead of 10 in one or two. i needed to drop 13 lbs to get to 165 and set a deadlift PR and nearly a bench PR in comp. just remember to eat tons of bananas and gatorade after.

Completely correct....also one of the better trick I learned from that is eating a lemon the night before the competition, works well as a diuretic to make you pee more to get another half pound out or so.

Would you guys suggest pedialyte or gatorade for rehydration? Does it matter that much?

gatorade has more sugar and therefore more a chance to make your stomach cramp and hurt, and cause...issues, which is why I recommend diluting it.

I've cut weight 14 times, pedialyte is...smoother.

I suppose I will look into pedialyte then.


In your opinion, what's a reasonable amount to cut in the space of a week for a smaller female such as myself?

If it makes a difference, my carbs are already pretty low. (<40-50g most days)

Agreed, Pedialyte goes down quick and easy, diluted Gatorade should be done later for further dehydration but I wouldn't do it instead of.

If you want to cut water it should be done with in ideally withing if not under a 12hour time period, exceeding no more then 24hrs. The whole point is just to hit body weight then rehydrate to original weight. Its not the same thing as dieting. Carbs don't really matter since you don't eat the day, night before cutting, its more so sodium content that you have to watch.

How to Cut Maximum Weight for Competitions with a 24-Hour Weigh In

I mean there is a list of low residue foods you can eat, I have a water cutting pdf guide off elitefts, that deals with more extreme water cutting but if its 10lbs or under, a sauna suit and a hot box is all thats really necessary.
