    Can anyone help me with a healthy diet for boxing?

    Losing weight isn't the issue, I'm 64kg and 5ft 11" so I could probably do with putting a bit on really, but that's not the main thing, I just want to eat healthily.

    I'm on a budget and can't really cook. Any realistic suggestions and help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    i think you will save more money with cooking than buying outside, and of course, its many times healthier

    Think he's referring to the term "bro science," which is usually information that bros pass along at the gym to other bros but tend to have no scientific evidence to back it up.

    Some of the bro science stuff I've heard (and used to believe) is pretty funny when I think about it, but personally, the "bro" diet always seemed to be on point for me (in terms of overall health). I think the general consensus now is you don't have to eat a "bro" diet to be healthy, lose weight, improve body composition, etc., but I don't see the reason to criticize people that do.

    thats what he was looking for, healthy food ideas. Wouldnt call it worthless, you'd combine some of them to make a meal. Not pickin a fight, theres enough of those goin on in this forum, just dont think its worthless.

    I think what BB is getting at is that in isolation a list of food names means very little. Ofcourse the foods that you listed can contribute to a healthy diet, but a healthy diet should be judged by the overall diet.
