Nutrition timing – top 5 tips

Nutritionist Marc Fell talks about some key ways a fighter can improve their nutrition timing and periodisation to get the most from training

5. Get your rest-day diet right

IT is also of the utmost important to periodise your nutrition with your rest days, whereby it may be useful to only consume a small amount of carbohydrate during this day to prevent any unwanted weight-gain. However, if the next day involves a couple of extremely high-intensity sessions it may be useful to eat a bit more carbohydrate so that when it comes to the following day’s sessions you have sufficient carbohydrate availability to meet their demands.
