what weight class do you have in mind when recommending this protocol? natural or assisted? the plan looks very similar to what I did except I'm one of those guys who carb deplete/load. what about fiber intake during low carb state, especially the day of the show where I need to really flatten my guts? thanks in advance.

see my last sentence. If you diet down right fiber or anything else won't matter, because you should be starving for carbs. So at this point and time fiber would not make a great difference to me.

You will retain fluid under the skin and not in the muscle...
