This plan is aimed at losing the water and fat while keeping the muscle, energy in the body, and nutrition. - A normal body will lose around 1 1/2 pounds overnight. So if a wrestler is 1.5lbs over before bed, he will most likely be near or at weight in the morning - The main plan shown above is to cut the carbs 36hrs before weigh-ins and only have lean red meat, salads, & eggs. Red meat like ground sirloin is perfect because it has a lot of B vitamins, helps keep up energy levels, & allows water weight to shed. - The other key concept for both plans is to keep water intake high until 15 hours from weigh-ins. Then you cut it down to 6-8oz every 3 hours or 3/4 to 1 cup. This helps the body shed water weight when done in conjuction with the protein only plan the day before weigh-ins. - Keep drinking the reduced 1 cup every three hours until 3 hours before weigh-ins. Then, after weigh-ins, consume juice or a gatorade and a bagel to replenish the carbs not eaten the previous day and the liquid which was flushed out of the body. - Recovery drinks need to have 1:3 ratio of Whey Protein & simple carboydrates to be effective. The best and cheapest revcovery drink is old fashioned chocolate Milk. Another option is 1 scoop of Whey powder into a glass of apple or fruit juice

This 2nd option utilizing meal replacement shakes is based on the following information: - The protein shake used in this plan is the Champion Nutrition Heavyweight Gainer 900 Vanilla Shake (High-Density Mass Gainer). This is available at Vitamin Shoppe. - The idea is to use 4scoops of this powder and mix it with 3cups of water. Then you divide it into 3 different shakes to use during the 3 times per day. With water the total equals 630calories (divided by 3 = 210cal each) - These mini-serving size shakes provide (for those trying to lose weight) the right amount of calories, with a perfect ratio of protein to carbohydrates. Basically, you get a high nutrient/calorie ratio in order to cut weight. - The other key concept is to keep water intake high until 15 hours from weigh-ins. Then you cut it down to 6-8oz every 3 hours or 3/4 to 1 cup. This helps the body shed water weight when done in conjuction with "cutting out carbs" plan the day before weigh-ins.

- The regular meal plan encorporates the following rules: - Eating 5 meals a day: Breakfast, a snack, lunch, post-practice recovery, & your evening meal - Have protein with each meal - Have a fat with each meal - Include complex carbohydrates like sweet potatoes and Ezekiel Bread in the first three meals - Have a vegetable each time you eat meat

The only thing you can and want to do within that one hour are rehydrate and stabilize the blood sugar. A few grapes, mixed nuts, along with water should suffice. There will be no energy gained from anything consumed during that time, so you are just "taking the edge off."

St. Joe Wrestling Weight Loss Plan

What to eat at a tournament


1) Stay away from sugar - Sugar, whether it comes from a gatorade, a doughnut, or a nutritious piece of fruit is still sugar. You need energy all day long and large amounts of sugar will end up making you sleepy. 2) Stay away from protein shakes & meal replacement shakes - These are predigested which means that they are easily & quickly absorbed into the body. As a result, your digestive system will run slowly & will lead to being more sleepy. 3) Eat Meat and Veggies - By combining a lean meat like steak, chicken, or turkey with a salad you have a perfect tournament food. This is because the chains of amino acids in these solid proteins require more by the digestive system to break down. This process allows you to stay alert all day. A breakfast of steak and eggs, with a small green salad is perfect. The fat in the eggs and the meat will also give you energy. 4) Caffeine? - Caffeine, when consumed in small amounts, can be effective at a tournament. Too much caffeine is dangerous and never recommended to anybody. You should also have a doctor's approval before consuming caffeine. With that said, caffeine in the form of an 8 oz. coffee can create a more thermal effect in combination with the meat & veggies.That one cup of coffee is consumed along with the morning meal. That's it though.After that the only fluid that should be consumed is water. 5) Water: Drink it all day long - Sip it, never gulp! Remember, we want to feel fast and efficient all day while the opponent gets tired out. 6) Last Carbohydrate Meal - The last time you should eat carbs before a tournament is the night before. This should be a normal dinner time meal. Depending on how you've cut weight and how much you have left to lose can affect this.

Here are some great tournament foods:


- Lunch meat - Hamburger - Rotisserie chicken without skin - Oatmeal - Sweet potato - Coffee - Peanut Butter and Jelly or honey - Fruits - Cherries, Grapefruit, Pears, Apples, Oranges, Grapes - Plain Pizza - Peanuts - Milk
