I have lowered my food to three small meals a day and i box all the time. I need some help if anybody could do so. I think I am doing something wrong because it aint working.
Honestly dude, you are not going to drop 25lbs in 2 months, especially if you are already somewhat lean. I would advise that your meals consist largely of lean meats (especially chicken breasts) and green veggies (spinach, broccoli, lettuce, celery, asparagus). Both of these are very good in terms of it takes nearly all of the calories in the food to digest and absorb the food (once things like thermogenic effect are factored in)
Have you ever cut water weight before? Even with the dieting you will probably only lose around 10lbs. From there it will have to be water. If you don't know someone pretty experienced with weight cutting or have cut weight yourself I would honestly not cut 15lbs of water before your first fight.
