A lot of that has to be water. Drink juice, sports drinks regularly. Eat a good
breakfast.

I agree with the above poster. That much weight loss that fast almost HAS to be primarily water weight. You should be drinking around a bottle per hour.

As a tourist you should be eating more fat and protein than the traditional high carbohydrate racer's diet.
