    How much weight do you put on in the 7-10 days following a show? (if you don't plan on competing anytime soon after)

    Just curious, b/c I've put on almost 35lbs since my weigh ins 10 days ago.

    35 lbs LOL!!

    I usually dont put on that much as I try and retain some control. I usually eat flat out for a day or so and then go back to a fairly normal eating plan with perhaps 1 small treat ED until the novelty wears off.

    For example, my last show I competed at 230 lb and a couple months later I was still in great condition at around 245.

    I have freinds however who think nothing of putting on 15-20 kilograms (30- 45 lbs) in less than a week, one of them actually ended up in hospital as his blood pressure was so high from the edema that he was at risk of stroke. Sounds funny now but its no joke.

    I would suggest cleaning up your diet a bit, avoiding super high sodium food (dont go crazy) and drink 8-10 litres water a day to flush yourself out. Should do the trick if the sudden weight gain is making you feel like crap.

    cheers

      Thanks for the reply bro.

      10 days ago I weighed 190 lbs (first thing in morn. naked)...and today I weighed 225 lbs (post workout with clothes on)...So it's probably more like 25-30 lbs. gain....still A LOT.

      yeah, it's quite uncomfortable at times...and I'm snoring A LOT more than normal...

      I'm gonna increase my water and cut back on sodium and junk. My indulgence is over. LOL

      The bloat is already going down a little as of today...so hopefully be week end I will be feeling better.

      Thanks,

        Yeah, the snoring is a giveaway sign of heavy edema.

          It is also important to taper off of some things AFTER the show and not stop all supplementation the day of the show. You can lessen the stress on the body by tapering intermittently.

            lol. BW...thats something i go thru after every show...putting on 15 pounds in a couple days is normal for me...though i tell myself im gonna take it easy at the buffet, the hungry demon in me takes over...when the bloat gets out of hand i opt to diuretics and drink tons of water...i eat sensibly for like a week with cheat meals here and there...

            plus the wife likes is when i blow up like that, not sure why, but w/e...lol

              Skip, I kept t3 going and have a couple days left. But everything else I stopped...b/c I ran out. lol

              I haven't taken any diuretics, but I probably should have a few days ago.

              Yesterday I kept the diet clean and drank more water...today I woke up feeling much better and can see the six pack. So I think I'm on the right track now...

                    will a natural diuretic like tarxatone help?
