Prior to the contest, consume as few liquids (water, soda, alcoholic beverages, etc.) as possible. Too many liquids will only fill the stomach, creating less room for food. However, some professionals do advise that it is fine to drink up to a liter of water to help expand the stomach, and to have herbal tea for calming and cleansing.[4] In addition, do not drink milk during the contest because you risk vomiting through your nose.

Learn to breathe through your nose if you don't do this normally. You won't have time to mouth breathe while you are eating.
