1. Santastic snacks
WITH a lot of mince pies, cakes and chocolate selection boxes lying around, it is to snack on these foods. However, they are largely full of sugars which will negatively affect your body composition and your performance in both training and competition. Snacks such as mixed nuts, milk or salmon and cheese crackers offer a great source of protein, a small amount of slow-release carbohydrates and a good portion of healthy fats. This will help you maintain and build your muscle mass, and remain healthy without putting on fat mass – the perfect boxing combination!
