    I know this may sound like a really silly question but, many doctors recommend you don't eat before you have a physical or have blood tested, is this the case for the DoDMERB as well?

    You can eat. They don't check blood. However, I think DS had instructions about not eating too much protein so it doesn't mess up your urine.

    I'm wondering how much protein is too much. What foods should we avoid? Meat?

    I am pretty sure they don't test urine any more. They did not on my DS and they stated that they don't do it anymore. DS is qualified for all three SA.

    Normal diet is fine, drink lots of fluids as most will check urine. Most importantly, do not do a strenous workout 1-2 days prior to your exam as it may spike the protien in your samlpe and this will likely result in a remedial.

    Weight

    Does anybody know if we are supposed to make weight for the DoDMERB day? I am very close to being on weight, but I'm not allowed to run for about a week due to a minor wrestling injury. My exam is on Monday.

    I can limit food (to almost none) and sit in a sauna if I need to make weight, but obviously, I would just like to know as soon as possible if that's what I need to do.

    Urine- Weight check

    They did not test my urine when I did my exam yesterday. Just to clarify a previous question of mine- they did take my weight, but they are not concerned with anybody meeting their height-weight requirements for the DoDMERB exam.
