Intermittent Fasting and day of contest.

I would like to have something on the day of the contest before the show. I.e. Simple carbs. It will cause me to break my fast however. I am wondering for anyone experienced if breaking your fast will contribute to any kind of bloating/water retention that can cause me to soft up?
