Juice diets for boxers: 4 things to consider

Nutritionist Robert Seaborne gives the lowdown on juice diets and whether they are suitable for boxers

1. For weight loss?

AS a boxer, you are trying to enter competition in the best shape possible, i.e. a good ratio between low body mass and high muscle mass. In order to do this, protein becomes the most valuable nutrient to provide the building blocks to promote muscle growth and recovery. Therefore, high-protein foods (such as meat, fish and dairy produce) are important to boxers to allow them to recover from intense weights, conditioning and sparring sessions. Protein is not typically  present in large amounts in juice diets.
