Default For Those Of You That Compete

For those of you hat compete, is your diet literally perfect?

A month before a fight do you literally eat and drink nothing but goodness, or do you still have a pizza of whatever on the weekends?


Just interested on your thoughts and stuff on the topic

I dont know about perfect but its as good as I can get it...

Dont touch pizza's or anything like that the weeks before my fight, paranoid about making weight as it is! I live on the edge of my 75kg weight limit so dont want to risk it.

Im also off the beer while im competing, probably goes without saying tho..

How about yourself?

I had ice cream probably every day when I boxed. Moderation to keep my sanity.

Im pretty much the same, where do you fight from? ive got my third fight a week on Sat, 4th two weeks on Fri and 5th on 15th Feb.

If anything tho I think my first two fights I stressed too much about my weight and came in at 73.5 and then at 74.5 when I could of been 76 for both as Id had less bouts than my opponent...

One pizza is nothing although I bet your feeling the guilt!

My diet is near perfect, except for one or two cheat meals a week (and I usually don't go overboard).
Approaching a fight, I will skip the cheat meals.
Everyone's different - for some, this might be overkill, but i'm a fatboy in a skinny body, so for me, the extra discipline is necessary.

My diet is probably the weakest part of staying conditionally disciplined.
By weak, I don't mean I eat lots like an animal or pure junk like a dirty hippie, but it could def. be better.
*diet and sleep. I abuse my body more often by neglecting it a full night rest

I'm exactly the same buddy haha i think 1 or two cheat meals is good, as long as you eat moderately well the rest of the week.

In the weeks before a fight my diet was near perfect (financial restraints made it less perfect than it could have been). Right after the fight I'd eat burgers until I dropped. The day after I resumed my regular diet.

It doesn't really hurt. If you workout a lot you'll burn the calories anyway. You could have had a good meal, but then again there are five or more chances to still do just that the same day.

I cut out alcohol for like 3 month and ate a less shitty diet, but it's overrated

Some of you are scared of gaining weight from eating a pizza?

I never eat pizza.














































Because I don't like it, but I have myself some ice-cream most days, or maybe some days I'll change it up and have me some coco-pops
