    If you’re looking to drop weight fast and only for one meet, then all you need to do is lose the water weight you are carrying. Back in my High School days when I was wrestling, guys used to use “plastics” to lose weight real fast. They’re also called “sauna suits”.

    They will cause you to sweat like no tomorrow. If you go this route, USE CAUTION! I cannot stress this enough. They can be dangerous if not used properly. In fact, they may be illegal for you organization. (They were illegal for wrestlers, but a lot of them would use them at home.)

    Not healthy, but a quick way to drop up to 5 pounds in a night. Just don’t use this method consistently.

    I admit, this isn’t the healthiest thing to do. Once you weigh in, you will want to refuel your body with lots of Gatorade and all the other nutrients because the fast weight loss will leave you feeling drained.

    Good luck with your meet.

    Weight loss and weight training
    We chose to list this separately from the “exercise” category because of the significant weight loss benefits attached to weight training in and of itself. The basic equation is this: the more muscle tissue you have, the more calories you will burn. This is why world class weight lifters must eat thousands of calories a day to maintain their weight. Muscle is active tissue, fat is not. Thus, muscle “burns” a significant number of calories each day for its own maintenance. In her book Strong Women Stay Slim, Miriam Nelson, a Tufts University researcher, showed that a group of women who followed a weight loss diet and did weight training exercises lost 44% more fat than those who only followed the diet. While aerobic activity can help burn calories, muscle’s where it’s at when it comes to giving your metabolism a significant daily boost even at rest.

    Find out why you overeat
    All too often overeating is triggered by stress, boredom, loneliness, anger, depression and other emotions. Learning to deal with emotions without food is a significant skill that will greatly serve long term weight control. The Solution, a book and national program developed by Laurel Mellin, RD, helps participants to identify their eating triggers and respond to them without food. A research study showed that the participants in this program demonstrated a better rate of long term weight loss maintenance than those who simply diet and/or exercise and don’t address behavioral and emotional issues. Chronic over-eaters and “emotional eaters” can be significantly helped by learning new behavioral skills such as those Mellin presents. You can also seek help with behavioral and emotional eating issues from a licensed counselor or psychologist in your area.

    Weight loss through eating less fat – but do it wisely
    We’ve known for some time that limiting high fat foods in the diet can be helpful with weight loss. That’s because fats pack in 9 calories per gram compared to only 4 calories per gram from proteins or carbohydrates. To many, the message to limit fats implied an endorsement to eat unlimited amounts of fat-free products. Just to clarify, fat-free foods have calories too. In some cases fat-free foods have as many calories as their fat laden counterparts. If you eat more calories than your body uses, you will gain weight. Eating less fat will help you to lose weight. Eating less fat and replacing it with excessive amounts of fat-free products will not.

    Downsize your dinner plates. Studies find that the less food put in front of you, the less food you’ll eat. Conversely, the more food in front of you, the more you’ll eat — regardless of how hungry you are. So instead of using regular dinner plates that range these days from 10-14 inches (making them look forlornly empty if they’re not heaped with food), serve your main course on salad plates (about 7-9 inches wide). The same goes for liquids. Instead of 16-ounce glasses and oversized coffee mugs, return to the old days of 8-ounce glasses and 6-ounce coffee cups.

    Great post but i also want to add my own ideas to complement yours:
    1 – to lose weight, you need to change weight gain habits over to weight loss habits.
    2 – Do not drink colas [even diet] sport drinks, or energy drinks.
    3 – Eat your natural carbs early in the day. That way you have the entire day to burn them off.

    4 – Eat NO carbs after around 6 PM
    5 – Do some exercize before you go to bed, this way you burn off any left over carbs.

    6 – to lose weight as fast as possible,eat unprocessed foods and three or four natural snacks a day.
    7 – When you want to have your main meals, eat bulky and fibrous foods first- like fruits and veggies.
