We often do our biggest rides when on a cycling vacation somewhere. Prep usually entails plenty of eating and drinking before each ride. If it was a race or competitive event I'd cut out the drinking and have an easy or no ride the day before.

Cutting back on carbs the night before and eating extra protein might be good for weight loss but deliberately riding carb-depleted is not pleasant.
