    Was reading in Sam Sheridan's book "A Fighter's Heart", the coach for fairtex was talking about prefight nutrition. Said eating high glycemic index carbs (simple sugars) before a fight will give you a lot of energy out of the gate; but may cause you to gas quicker. He said low glycemic index carbs (like oatmeal) would cause you to be a bit of a slow starter, but to maintain your energy. This was in regards to a fighter who was fighting more than one fight in that day though; so for a single high-paced amateur fight it might not apply 100%. I don't think pedialyte (to get electrolytes after making weight), a banana, and some oatmeal before the fight would hurt though.

    Before the weigh in I'd imagine nothing but a lot of water, unless you're not cutting - then just eat healthy.

    veggies + protein (either chicken or a steak) + a grain (whole wheat pasta or brown rice).
