1. Consume a high-protein diet

WHEN recovering from injury, in attempts to minimise any associated loss of muscle mass, it is vital to maintain high protein intakes of approximately 2g per kg of bodyweight (i.e. 70kg fighter = 140g of protein per day). A rich protein source that includes approximately 20-30g of protein should be included in every meal and snack. For reference, an egg contains approximately 6g of protein and a chicken breast includes 25-30g of protein whilst a 180g pot of Greek yoghurt contains approximately 20g of protein.
