    I was told once that eating a packet of mustard works well for cramps. I don't know if this person was messing with me or not, I have never tried it.

    Wow, sorry to have polluted your thread with unwanted information. I was just trying to be helpful in suggesting a potential source of information and type of food/nutrition which might be useful to prevent or alleviate cramping, since that seemed to be your primary focus, just an avenue of thought that might be worth a consideration. Even though I have not tried this personally, I fully disclosed that. I am not trying to sell you anything, if I did, I would lie and tell you to absolutely try this since this is the best thing since sliced bread and works miracles.
    I don't think this was off-topic at all, I only mentioned it without first-hand experience because there is some very interesting science behind it, and this isn't some Joe Schmoe snake oil recipe promoted on shark tank. At least this stemmed from the work of extremely well respected scientists in their field (yeah, you don't win the Nobel prize at your local raffle...) A field of science where I have some strong interest myself and relates loosely to some work I have done personally.
    Dude, it seems you start some threads where interesting discussion could take place, but you make it a point to prohibit any relevant and stimulating interaction by going out of your way to police the threads in ridiculously obnoxious fashion.
    At some point, I wanted to participate in the discussion regarding AI computers vs SPGs in another thread of yours, but refrained based on similar patterns of censorship and policing others had already complained about.
    Bottom line, just because you start a thread doesn't mean you own it, and if you're trying to discourage anyone from intervening in any thread of yours, it seems to me you're on the right path.
    "Cheers." to paraphrase.

    I took it as a joke. But I am bad about taking things as jokes, even when they may not have been intended that way.

    If a longish dive planned, pretzels. Helps delay the inevitable diuresis with diving.

    Edit: This was a TSandM pearl.

    Threads are like a conversation and in the real world, conversations evolve. Remember to be courteous to all participants.

    We do try to keep threads on track but saying words to the effect of "while I haven't tried this myself, my friends swear by XX product", is still on topic

    Nope. No specific meal before a dive.
    When I dive early I make sure to have breakfast as usual (mix of cereals, dried bananas, raisins and yoghurt) at least 2 hours before entering the water.
    When diving during the day or in the evening: I eat as normal, but again at least 2 hours before entering.
    I just want to make sure that I've digested my meal.
    What I do more than normally: I drink a lot before. Water!
    Until the very last moment before entering I drink water. And as soon as I get out and removed my set, I start drinking again. Water! (specifying it bc people might think I'm a drunk onshore)
    I normally don't drink that much water, except when running and diving.
