4. Keep vitamins, fats and mineral the same

THESE food sources shouldn’t be manipulated during a cutting phase. It is important that fats, vitamins and minerals are not compromised during this period as your body needs the nutrients that these food sources provide. Maintaining a balanced approach (as explained in my balanced diet blog) for these nutrients is advised.

These are some simple, healthy and safe rules to follow to help you ‘cut’ weight before weigh-in. However, every boxer is an individual, and it is impossible to provide tailored information without you consulting a sports nutritionist. For the best and most efficient way to lose weight, you should consult a sports nutritionist (SENr registered preferably) as they can supply you with individual nutrition plans depending on the circumstances.
