partouse saidif you want to look trimmer and have more muscle definition, you need to dehydrate.
Ugh. I don't agree with the cutting water approach. Very unhealthy and not necessary.
I never said cutting through dehydration was healthy, but then again Greenhopper didn't ask about the healthiest things he could do in the two weeks preceding the photo shoot. Instead, he expressed anxiety about not feeling "physically confident" and sought advice to help "as much as (he) humanly can to be in optimal shape." Having known my share of underwear models and porn actors, I know the best way in short order to enhance muscular definition is to dehydrate. You can also do high rep exercises to pump muscles immediately before the shoot. He'll survive the dehydration and look leaner and more defined if he drops waters. I dated an underwear model in LA once whose travails with hydration and photo shoots drove me insane, but in the main he was healthy as an ox, albeit a bit maniacal about this 10-pack. His friends and he were at the top of their game, bouncing across continents and coasts to prance down catwalks and sit for shoots, and they all followed some dehydration practice of some kind.
I agree, though, with GAMrican's reassurance that you look fine as you are and with Stan904's assertion that for an artistic shoot you don't need to be perfect.
I also second GAMrican's suggestion to eat light the day of the shoot. To keep tummy from protuding but also to feel more confident, eat light the couple days before the shoot.
