Quick question! Does anyone else notice that their weight is even more inconsistent with IF than with eating 5-6 meals during the day?

I have a powerlifting meet coming up on February 26th. It's very important that I make weight for this day.

What I've noticed with IF, is that I seem to weigh more in the mornings, due to the fact that all my food is eaten before bedtime. When I split up meals during the day, I tend to be lighter by morning time just because I don't have a bunch of food and water sitting in my stomach.

My question is, being 3 weeks out from my meet and having to keep a close eye on my weight, do you think it would be better to switch to smaller meals to be able to gauge weight progress more efficiently? Because I know if I happen to eat some carbs one night that can send my weight shooting up another 4 lbs. by the next day, and I want to avoid any mishaps. I want to also prevent having to cut more water weight than is absolutely necessary.

Any thoughts are much appreciated!

Hi Christine, just posting so that you know you aren't being ignored. I'm not in a position to advise you, but you may be able to get some response on Robb Wolf's forum or by asking Martin Berkhan.

Why are you IFing if you have a sport that you compete in?
