Nutritionist Robert Seaborne BSc outlines the things a fighter must do to cut weight for a contest

3. Eat protein regularly

FOLLOWING the carbohydrate rules will promote fat burning and help you lose weight. To make sure you maintain your muscle-mass, you need to eat good sources of protein, regularly. The building blocks provided by the protein you eat will maintain the muscle that can help you win fights, even when you are losing weight – trust me! The rules to follow are:

Total – 2-2.5g of protein for every kg of bodyweight a day – spread evenly throughout the day – is recommended.

Type – Eggs, beef, chicken, turkey, milk and salmon are quality protein sources.

Time – Eat protein every three hours (especially pre and post-training).
