3 weeks no smoking now and it is easier every day the weight loss is not quite going to plan as I seem to be adding muscle rather than losing fat.I can live with that for now as the fitter I get the easier the weight loss will become(hopefully) Thanks for your comments

Help - I'm a novice boxer who travels all the time in my Job!
I did well so far losing 30lbs in 3 months but I am travelling a lot now and want to get from 88Kg to 68Kg in 4 months for the next fight. Biggest request is for any motivational tips because when you travel you are tired and the lure of room service or crappy food is hard to break!

Just a quick update 5 and a half weeks no smoking and am finding it easier by the day.The weight is still a bit slow coming off (weighed 102.8kg today)but am noticeably more muscular(arms and legs in particular) so am not to concerned and the weight has disappeared everywhere except my gut which itself is much smaller.I have also seen a big improvement in my performance at the gym.

are you guys getting enough iron in your diet? this is not something only girls have to worry about, a lot of athletes have this problem. it's very important to eat a lot of iron rich foods to avoid a deficiency. getting enough iron is essential to being able to train your best since one of it's primary functoins is that it's what carries oxygen to all the cells in your body, effecting everything from your energy to your concentration and mood. anemics, who lack sufficient iron, are constantly tired, weak and have a hard time doing most things until they correct their deficiency.

when you train very hard, in this case boxing, your body goes into overdrive increasing red blood cell production to keep up w/ the pace and this, combined w/ getting hit (anything that makes you bleed), depletes your body of iron and you have to replenish it. building up your iron stores is something that happens gradually over the course of months b/c of the bodies relatively poor absorption. i read a study where it said generally only 10% of iron at a time is absorbed and i feel this to be true after reading some experiences of those w/ anemia and how long it took to get adequate levels while supplementing. vitamin c helps w/ absorption but clearly in the avg. persons diet there is room for improvement. foods that are high in iron are red meat, fortified ceraels, turkey, nuts, liver is very high in it if you like it, i think it's a great food. remember always have something w/ vitamin c while eating these foods.

there is something i want to add in addition to the last thing i wrote here that is important and i forgot to mention..it's very important to get enough iron and if you decide to orally supplement (which you really shouldnt unless you are anemic or something) please see your dr. first and let him/her know so you can get periodic testing!!! too much as can easily happen overtime through supplementation will lead to haemochromatosis, thats just the word for too much iron. it can damage your heart and liver b/c the body has no real way of get rid of excess iron so it stores it the body's tissues & organs, like liver, heart, pancreas etc. so please do check if you decide to take in the long term.

Default Post-workout snack/meal?

This is a fantastic thread. Many thanks to RDJ and the other experts out there with solid, sound advice and a willingness to share and answer questions.

I train/box relatively late in the day- usually from 8-10 PM Tuesdays and Thursdays. I want to maximize my recovery so I'm wondering what sort of post-workout nutrition is ideal. After my workout it takes me about a half-hour to get home to 'real' food so I'm wondering if a recovery drink is in order for immediately after my workout, and if so, what sort of nutritional balance it should have. I go to sleep pretty soon after I get home (usually in bed by 11 PM) so I'm hesitant to add a meal that close to sleeping.

I have been aiming for protein-rich snacks when I get home- 8-16 ozs. skim milk and 4 ozs. or so of deli-cut turkey. Some of my training mates drink commercially available recovery drinks with carbs + protein but those things are expensive and unlike some of my mates, I'm not looking to add ridiculous amounts of muscle.

I'd appreciate any advice or insight. Thanks.

A smoothie. Mine has fruit + yogurt/quark + flaxseed and some whey if you want more protein. Don't forget to rehydrate either, normal water will do since the smoothie will contain all the minerals and vitamins you'll need to replenish.

Current smoothie recipe:

- banana
- apple
- strawberries
- blackberries
- red currants
- cherries
- yoghurt
- quark
- flaxseed
- cinnamon

So you favor fruits/carbs post workout?

A smoothie is a good idea but not portable, so do you think waiting 30-40 minutes post-workout is OK? I also drink ~ a liter of water after my workout on my way home, which I forgot to mention before.

Put the smoothie in a bottle at take it with you

It's not a carbs meal actually. If you use the ingredients I listed your post workout meal will contain carbs, fats and proteins (again add whey if you want more). It will also be rich in micronutrients. Apart from that all you need is water.

Ah gotcha. I'm a yank so I had to google 'quark' so I see that you have a good balance there. Thanks for the advice again. Hopefully I can put it to good use!

Kangaroo meat is a very lean source of protein.

I am also to believe eating within an hour after training is quite beneficial towards absorbing nutrients and muscle repair.

Agreed actually, it doesn't start right away. I coughed out my lungs the first week or so. Phlegm in all colours, black, brown and green

I can easily say that im so poor that i cant have smoothies in the morning. Cant afford supplements either. Boiled eggs and whatever else we have in the house.

MALTO 6
Do any of you know about this. Just bought it. Was cheap, like 8$.

"Malto6 is a carbohydrate powder for serious and recreational athletes produced from starch. The carbohydrate composition of MALTO6 is especially suitable for filling up the glycogen stores of athletes. MALTO6 can also be used in recovery drinks (can someone specify that, dont know much about nutrition) together with FAST-protein. Mixed with water. High in molecular weight."

100g/380kcal/94 g Carbohydrates.
Told to drink 30 to 60 min before workout, but can i drink it also during my workout?
