    Thanks for all the help!

    Btw, would it be better to eat dinner about 2 hours before practice around 4 pm and then train from 6:15 pm to 8:45pm* and then have an egg white protein shake with almond milk immediately after practice and then go to bed around 10:30 to 11:00 pm? Right now I am eating a small snack of tuna jerky around 4 pm (or not eating anything at all if I'm not hungry), going to training from 6:15 pm to 8:45 pm and then having dinner and then going to bed around 12:00 midnight. By adding in the protein shake I could get some nutrients in my body after I workout so I'm not tempted to eat a HUGE meal after training and I can get to bed earlier. Would this make any difference for dropping some fat?

    *Monday, Wednesday- Beginner Class: 20 minutes of calisthenic warm-ups, 40 minutes drilling technique AND Advanced Class: 20 to 30 minutes of calisthenic warm ups, 30 to 40 minutes of drilling technique, 30 minutes of live rolling.

      1) 1/2 of a sweet potato will have almost ZERO affect on your ability to lose weight.

      2) You've pretty much got it nailed. 1 gram of carbohydrate needs 3-4 grams of water to be processed by your body. Salt also increases water retention.

      3) Cliff bars a great option for a high calorie-to-volume food.

      Check it out if you still have questions.
