The best advice Ive come across is 'The Grapplers guide to sports nutrition'. Tells you everything you need to know about diet content and safe weight cutting. Very well put together and easy to understand.... as you can tell I rate it very highly!
My understanding of that is before noon? Surely I'm wrong?
Meal 5 ;*** BEFORE PM *** Lean Protein Source [ tuna, turkey, salmon etc ] Steamed veg. sometimes take on carbs depending on how i feel or what's to come training wise.
it is meant to say before 6 PM.
if you think its easy stop now
no one achieved anything by doing nothing
never argue with a fool
if fighting is a pursuit rooted in pain, you will find the best teachers have often absorbed the most punishment themselves......and remained standing
interesting thread. so any fighters that aren't dieting for an upcoming fight, just training 'normally' so to speak, what would you be eating and when?
i find it hard to do the 'little and often' type diet, although i do feel reassured because my current diet isn't too disimilar to mr goddard's!
excellent book!! Although I think we(hard-training athletes) do need a little bit more carbs than the amount that Berardi advocates. But I guess it also depends on your individual metabolism.

Cheers Marc, all the info helps, i try to eat clean but i like my food
at the minute im eating:
2 wholemeal toast with Flora Light
Chicken / Tuna with Pasta or spuds or 2 chicken sandwiches
then my tea of chicken / fish and veg and spuds
both Dinner and tea are quite large portions, would you cut down the amounts and eat more?
any other suggestions to porridge? as it makes me gag.
You can't put a limit on anything. The more you dream, the farther you get
Good post. I think in general most poeple over complicate things with too many numbers and precise amounts. It is difficult to predict exactly how an individual is going to respond to any given diet and therefore ideally a diet should be adaptable to how you're feeling at specific time. I follow 3 simple rules: 1. Eat less energy than you expend, but do not starve yourself. 2. Time your specific nutrient (e.g. carbs and protein) and energy intake correctly around your training scedule. 3. Allow yourself to cheat.

you can get some pretty nice granola, quaker do some and it's basically rolled oats that are cooked, a bit like clusters. they're a dream with the strawberries and that in. quite high sugar content though when you buy the quaker ones.
