Just know when your body actually needs nourishment. If you're going to be doing a lot of things, maybe it's better to get some extra food in you. I've done that water loading thing before while also portioning my meals (bad combination if your body is still getting used to it) and it wasn't very comfortable for me. The water loading idea is what makes eating a salad as an appetizer a good idea -- the leaves and vegetables have a good amount of water in them to help ease your cravings while you're eating, making you less susceptible to over-eating.
