2. Cut the carbs

CARBS become the most important tool in the effort to lose weight. To be in a calorie deficit, boxers should consume low amounts of carbohydrates and eat low-sugar carbohydrates. This will promote fat burning and will help a fighter lose weight. Some simple rules to follow are:

Total – 1g-1.5g of carbs for every kg of bodyweight per day is plenty.

Type – Brown pasta/rice, nuts, wholemeal bread, sweet potato are recommended carb sources.

Time – Do not consume carbs before early-morning sessions, or within four hours of going to sleep.
