    What for?

    Just so you can see the number on the scale? I don't see the point if it's not actually a permanent change in body composition.

    It isn't healthy to deliberately dehydrate yourself.

    Yeh I guess so, just to actually see my true weight after water weight for curiosity. And doesnt it make your skin tighter temporarily until you hydrate yourself? I feel soft still from the little bit of fat I have left

    Unless stepping on stage or making weight for a fight this is a complete waste of time. You will look the same as today by the weekend. If you're that set on finishing this cut just start bulking now.

    Yes but it can be dangerous.
    I did from a dry sauna.
    You will loose weight but it's water weight.
    The body is about 80% water.
    I did it for wrestling to loose the last couple pounds to make the weight class but hydrate right up after weight ins.
    You will feel crappy no energy.
    Remember also the muscle holds fluids/glycogen.
    If there is no fluid in them you can look flat and stringy.
    But if your goal is to just loose weight for weight sake then it could work for you.

    You have a big misunderstanding of weight. Water is included in "true weight" since your body is basically 60-70% water. If you're 1.5kg off from your goal weight that just means you have another 1.5kg of fat to lose.
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    Being significantly dehydrated isn't your "true weight". It is your "Dehydrated weight" that you will bounce right back up from as soon as you drink 32-48oz of water.

    Your own statement says that you still have fat left and making yourself "thirsty" isn't going to cause it to go away.

    That isnt water. It is in my opinion the worst part of fat loss.. it is the fat right before it fuks off... it is such a thin layer of fat spread over a large area.

    It does tighten up eventually but its mentally draining until it does.

    One thing I do to track progress is grab the fat or skin on my pubic area and at the same time. Grab the skin or fat around my belly button and compare the two. As you lose weight and you lose weight properly. These two areas will be more and more similar.

    The skin on the back of your hand is a great example of what an area looks like when it has very little fat in it.

    That woosh feeling or however you label it is the final stages of fat loss in that area. Good luck mate

    Fat cells take on water to retain size as they are depleted of glycogen stores. Basically the body is attempting to maintain those cells so that they can swap the water back out for more glycogen as soon as you eat at a significant surplus again. The water remains stored in the fat cells until its release is triggered by a combination of metabolic factors including hormonal changes.

    This is why most of the water that you lose from a short period of dehydration will come from other areas of the body.

    Example: In July-August when the temperature here in Houston was in the mid-90s in the afternoon, I would go out and ride my bicycle through the park system here in town for about 90 minutes (20 miles) and see a drop in weight on my scale of 3-5 pounds from the "before ride" and "after ride" numbers. This however did not trigger a sudden drop in the overall amount of loose, saggy, fat that I was still carrying around my lower back and abdomen.

    Instead, most of that water loss was from the rest of my body mass and every time my weight would have would invariably returned to my "Before ride" weight by the next morning.
