Thread: Tips for afternoon weigh ins

    My son's plan was to drink water all morning and stop around lunchtime. We do not advocate dehydration as a weight management technique. I am very concerned about my kids damaging their bodies that way.

    i dont know if it counts as dehydration, but when I am close to my weight and need to keep it close, down to the ounce (normally 139.5), I usually carry around an empty bottle and a sack of sweet tarts. They make you spit way more than lollipops and help you lose about a pound per bottle you can fill up. I usually do this when I am already under my weight by maybe a pound or so (139), then I lose the spit weight (to about 138) so I can gain it all back (to as close to 140 as possible)with good stuff like high protien food and water. Thats my typical match day diet.

    hope its not too confusung!

    My typical Match day diet.
    IF I'm overweight. Breakfast, milk.
    Spit bottle.
    nothing else the whole day.
    Eat a 6-12 in sub.
    Carbs hold water and give you energy and you want that before a match but after weigh=ins.
    Not really dehydrating yourself or starving yourself.
    Or what he could do is have a higher metabolism.
    Eat less more often.
    Hope that makes sense

    Spitting in a bottle is dehydrating yourself.

    really? I'll have to keep that in mind. I didn't think it was but I'll have to be more careful for now on. Thanks!

    Any time you are taking water out of your body and not replacing it you are running the risk of dehydrating yourself. About 10 years ago 3 college wrestlers died from extreme forms of dehydration. I am sure that you are not engaging in the types of activities they were. However, severe dehydration can caus permanent damage to your body. I assume you are young and want to keep your body healthy for a long time past this wrestling season.

    My FIL had kidney damage (not wrestling related) and was on dyalisis for the last few years of his life. It is not something I would wish on anyone. He died young (60) and his last few years of life were not pleasant. I am very concerned about unhealthy weight managment techniques being applied by teenaged boys. Most coaches do not support extreme weight loss measures, but some do, so please educate yourself.

    I stopped running in trash bags because I found out it suffocates your skin, but is running in multiple layers bad for you also?
