AS the festive period endures and swings into 2017, the temptation to indulge in a range of sweets and chocolates is everpresent in a boxer’s celebrations. However, if a boxer overindulges during this festive period it means that they will in fact undo much of the hard work they have put into training over the previous weeks/months as well as making the weight-making process even more difficult if they are fighting early in the New Year.

Below I provide five simple, health homemade snacks and drinks that represent alternatives to Christmas junk foods.
