That little extra something...
Ok, Memorial Day weekend is almost here. I have been on a very clean diet for 10 weeks now. I am verry happy with the results I have gotten. I have lost 13 pounds with pretty much just diet and cardio. Im doing this while keeping most of my LBM. I dont have an exact BF count, but the definition iof my abs is starting to show pretty good.
I am looking for something that will give me the little extra "cut" for the time that im at the lake. Im not looking for some magic pill, just some ideas.
I know that i could deplete my sodium intake and lower my water intake on the day of, but what about something like SAN Shredded, or Xpel?
Like I said, i am happy with my results so far, but who wouldnt want that extra something when it counts?

Thanks Bama. I have used that stack before. I liked it, but I get better results when sticking to the ol' EC stack.. Im actually looking more for something to add day of, or a few days out... Even if its just a temporary thing. I will only be there for the weekend.

Well Xpel is a diuretic. Something that will just take out that last little bit of water. Something like this is what im talking about. People who compete (which I dont, and dont ever plan to) use things like this about a week out. I just dont know how something like that would effect someone for an entire weekend.

o.k. so I see what you want but the people who take that are also dieting up to contest time. I guess it would work. If you are going to be drinking it may also give you a worse hangover. If the alcohol dries you out and you are also taking a diuretic you are going to be DRY. That will be a real good headache.

Its not a healthy suggestion but I am assuming being at the lake involves drinking?
The day after you drink you will be cut-up pretty good from the dehydration especially after your supper clean diet basically the same affect you would have from the diuretic. Be cautious because your alcohol tolerance will most likely be very low after eating very clean for so long.
Something more useful may be to take one of the other protocols you mentioned a week or two before and then move into a very low carb diet and then carb load 1-2 days out along with Anabolic Pump or P-slin which should cause your muscles to have a good pump and make them look much more full.
If you have checked out the "Cut Diet Book" that Scivation was sending out with their orders a couple of years back there was an example where the day before a body building tourney they actually have cheescake or chocolate cake thrown in. Speaking of Scivation I had just seen an add for a product called showtime that may also fit into your mix, I think it was relativey cheap as well.
In the end drinking might be more fun....

That was one thing that I was worried about. That why I came here to ask. I know when I drink, the next day I am pretty dry. Like you said, this would be like doubling up on that effect, which may not be the best idea. In the end, I may just be better off having a good time since Im happy with my results so far and still have 3 weeks left to just diet and cardio the way I have been.

Aside from looking lean, I think the contest guys take chocolate and candy to make them more vascular, even if it is temporary. So maybe you could make an entrance like that :P
Diuretic + Clean Eating + Alcohol = Mind Splitting Headache x 1,000

Where are you at? Take the money you are going to spend on any supplements and rent a wakeboard for the day. Even if you don't have a boat, someone will probably want to give it a spin. Give them some gas money and have fun. I recommend trying the Ronix Ibex with cell bindings.
You say you can see the outline of your abs? That's better than say 95% of people your age these days.
