1. Get a bespoke diet
WEIGHT-MAKING for boxers is a very controversial area. However, via the correct nutritional plan, boxers can make weight in a safe, gradual and healthy manner. Using specific nutritional diets that are designed for an individual boxer (by a sports nutritionist), that avoid the use of chronic dehydration and food restriction, can help maintain a boxer’s long-term health. These diets also help control a fighter’s metabolic behaviour, making it easy to stay at a new healthier weight post-fight. So, employ safe and healthy weight-making regimes with the right diet.
