hey guys.pretty new to the forum and seems like there is a lot of guys fighters and otherwise with lots of knowledge.was wondering if anyone had any advise for me.
i weigh about 78 kg and am 6 foot tall.looking at having my first amateur boxing bout in september ( i know ages away!) and am looking out for some advise on diet and nutrition,got a bit of a belly that i want to lose and also want to look good for when i fight (aswell as looking good on the beach spring break in cancun!
i train at my boxing club mon,tues and thurs for an hour a time,and also run back home after which is between 2 - 2.5 mile run, then on my days off boxing wedn and fridays i will run intervals 2 mins fast as i can running then 1 min light jogging doing 5 sets. on the same days wed and fri i will do weights incorporating shoulder press,bench press,lat pulldowns,tricep pushdowns or dips and bicep curls.i have been doing this routine for 2 weeks.
my question is what should i be eating?i want to look ripped and i also have a small amount of muscle mass that i want to keep as much of as poss.i would estimate my body fat percentage at about between 15 and 18%.also does anyone have a sample meal plan?and how many meals should i be eating a day?and lastly does anyone think there is anything i should change on my training program or that i could do better?any advice or information would be greatly appreciated. thanks
Ill go first , 6 meals per day ( try and eat every 2 hours), real clean stuff lean fish& greens is the way to go , meal size no bigger than the palm of your hand ( frank shamrock diet ) , also i think www.bodybuilding.com is a very good site , loads of peope on there with blogs of how they got down to silly bodyfat percentages , to get a six pack your diet has to be off the shizzle !!

thanks for the input mate,when you say meal size no bigger than the palm of your hand,do you mean one palm protein one palm carb?
no mean a fist sized meal ie 1/2 a small tin tuna with some broccoli , or a turkey breast with salad that kind of thing
