The Paleo Diet: does it work for boxers?

Nutritionist Robert Seaborne analyses the paleo diet and whether boxers should use it


• During light sessions low-sugar carbohydrates (e.g. wholemeal bread) are a good option; this will avoid gaining body-fat.

  • During high-intensity or double sessions, higher-sugar foods (white rice, white bread) are a better option to help fuel you.
  • After weigh-ins, high-sugar carbs (jaffa cakes, white bread, energy drinks) should be consumed regularly; this is the best way to fuel your muscles.
  • Carbs are the most important supply of energy for your muscles. Do not become carbaphobic!
