Default Re: Nutrition for Amateur boxer?

Wow. Your mom is right. I've never heard of a mother doing that, you need to give her a raise.

If you eat a low calorie diet, your body will eventually adapt, meaning you have to eat even fewer calories. It becomes hard to get all the nutrients you need without getting fat.

Taking a day or two out of the week and eating like a normal human will keep your body from adapting. Smart woman.

Other than that just eat healthy and eat a lot. You don't have to worry about weight classes right now since you're growing. The primary thing is just getting your body everything it needs to grow. If you start gaining a little fat, just cut back some. But for now, I'd err on the side of eating more than you need, not less.
