Protein: the top 5 sources for a boxer

Top nutritionist Marc Fell lists the very best protein sources for boxers

2. Red meats
RED meat is a high-quality source of protein that can contain approximately 20-30g of protein per 100g whilst also including many essential amino acids needed to make new proteins. Red meat is also packed with vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B12, B6, iron and zinc. Red meat is the richest natural source of creatine. However it must be noted that some types of red meat will have a high saturated fat content which may not be beneficial for cutting weight. Therefore boxers should only consume red meat two-three times a week depending on the magnitude of weight-loss needed.
