Default losing weight?

hi , I have my 3rd fight in just over 2 weeks and I needs to lose about 2-3 kg. I weigh around 71-72kg(155-157lbs) and need to get down to under 69kg(151). I weigh in on day of fight so want to cut as little as possible. I am dieting but finding it hard to lose weight as I have low body fat . I am about 6,'1. I will lose the weight regardless just seeing if you guys have any tips. thanks

run alot and if you have a sauna nearby use it everyday. also the day before the fight dont drink any water. I walk around 160 lbs when im not training but I fight at 123 lbs. Thats almost 40 pounds that i lose to fight.

yea the deal is to lose the extra water weight and just drink enough to stay hydrated. Personally i just take small sips of gatorade when im trying to make weight. Just dont drink too much water the days before the weigh-in. lose more water than you drink.

Dehydrating yourself is not very smart. To lose weight you need to create a calorie deficit, in other words you need to burn more than what you take in. Cut back on desserts, sodas and other empty high calorie foods/beverages.

Running, both distance and sprints, will aid your fat loss goals along with the most underrated and overlooked factor:SLEEP!!

How old are you and what's your height? Cutting 40 lbs. isn't ideal at all for competing, it's setting up health risks later on. At least try keeping within 10-15 pounds of your fight weight.

I always eat pretty good but now I am cutting out anything with fat/sugar. and watching the carbs a bit. for breakfast I might eats a bowl of oats. or 2 bits of toast with peanut butter. then I have a meal at 10 am which is a small turkey/ Salas wrap and a piece of fruit and yoghurt and maybe a couple of nuts. then at 1 I have through same again minus the yoghurt then for dinner I will have an omelette or some fish/chicken. and that's all I'm eating. plus Im drinking alot of green tea.
I'm training and doing cardio every day so hopefully I'll lose a couple of pounds in a week or two

Congratulations on winning the tourney, man. But yeah, definitely try '32 and '41. You'll feel a lot better, have more energy, and carry more pop at those weights. Good job, though, keep it up.
