    I just started boxing and wanted to know the foods I should worship and avoid. I would appreciate some food recipes as well.

    Balanced diet always important. Don't buy the "No/Low Carb" or "Low Fat" stuff.

    There are a lot of things with a lot of fat which are super healthy and important in a diet.

    I don't have any recipes for you but i give you some food in every department:

    (Kidney) Beans
    (last three also have a lot of Protein)
    Fruits (Apples, Banana, Kiwi for example)

    Try to eat most of them before the Workout and especially after.
    A decent pre workout recipe is just some toast with Peanut butter and jam. OF course not 5-6 but 1 or 2 are fine like 1hr before the workout. Thats a good recipe. After the workout you can use a Banana to get some carbs in quickly. Like 1,5 hrs after your training you should eat a bigger meal with all kind of stuff (Carbs, Protein, Fat).

    Fish (either low fat fish but do not forget the high fat fish to get some great fats)
    Eggs (also a lot of good fats)

    Nuts (also a lot of good protein)
    Oil (Linseed, Olive for example)

    Don't forget the Vegetables. Eat a lot. Broccoli for example. Lettuce. I can also recommend Ginger. I know a lot of people don't like it but it's delicious if you put some small pieces in your Rice, Chicken, Avocado meal. I love cooking Rice with some vegetable dices to make it a bit more spicy and tasteful. Then cook some chicken, put some Spices into it and finally some Linseed oil and Avocado + the ginger pieces. Basic stuff but super delicious imo.

    And of course...DRINK Water, Water, Water. I won't give you any recommendation but as you probably won't be able to drink a lot during the training session you should drink a lot afterwards and of course after waking up take two big glasses of water. The body needs to rehydrate after sleeping for 6-8 hrs.

    First response is right: balance is a big thing.

    I also believe in building in ‘cheat’ meals here and there, like one a week. Have a slice of cake or pie or a couple of cookies once in a while, or order a pizza. Not every meal, not every day, obviously, but having those built-in spots to relax on your diet just a bit makes it easier to stick to it.

    I'm thinking of trying the Morgan Spurlock McDonald's diet, and bulking up to heavyweight. Shouldn't be too hard with my lifestyle.
