Boxers: 5 food and drink essentials for your kit bag

Nutritionist Marc Fell MSc shares five of the food and drink essentials you must have in your training bag

5. Fruit and nut mix

SIMPLY putting a portion of fruit and nut mix in your training bag will provide another ideal snacking option for a boxer who is constantly on the move. Nuts provide a protein-rich snack whilst dried fruit also contains carbohydrates. However, it must be acknowledged that large portions of nuts will provide large amounts of calories, therefore over-consuming on such snacks may potentially result in unwanted weight-gain. These portions should be strategically placed within a boxer’s diet and carefully monitored.
