I have some questions about my nutrition/diet on the day of a big event...when weight is an important thing and so is energy level.

I'm concerened about my weighing in at this years US Open (BJJ). I currently weigh right around 164lbs without the gi on. I have to weigh 167.5 with it on to make the light weight division. Can't go over or I will be DQ'd and you weigh in right before you fight.

I'm just worried about scale accuracy at the tournament and what I can do to keep my weight down on the day of the fight?

I will more than likely fight in the afternoon. I'm worried about what I eat for breakfast, lunch, and then some snacks before I fight. I need to have enough energy to compete but I don't want to tip the scales.

Any suggestions on what I can do the day of the tournament to keep me under the 167.5 mark? I will be competeing in a single weave gi....that will help some.
