One of the most challenging elements of being a sports athlete is what to eat!
How much to eat and when to eat it. Being an MMA athlete is no exception.
Trust me when I tell you that you are not alone. From the beginner all the way to professional fighters they all face the same nutrition difficulties.
Why do you think UFC and Pro fighters invest in Nutritionists to help them prepare for fights?
As a Combat Athlete you must separate yourself from regular people when it comes to nutrition. You are preparing for battle…literally.
In order to train, fight and perform at your peak (whether in competition or day to day living), you need to feed your body the right food at the right time and ensure it’s the optimal amount.
Conversely, eating the wrong foods can be a detriment to your training program and can hinder your overall performance.
You will find yourself losing the strength and muscles you have worked extremely hard for. You’ll add unwanted weight, feel fatigued and sluggish, increase inflammation and slow down recovery between training sessions.
And no matter how hard you workout, how many sprints you do or how many rounds your spar, “You Can’t Out Train a Bad Diet”!
Eating the right food at the right time will allow you to train at your peak level, give you increased energy, help you to recover faster and increase your metabolism so you burn more fat faster than ever.
