    Default Weight loss/cutting, 1st fight soon, training & diet guidance required please!

    Hi guys,
    I am just after a little bit of advice and guidance. I have had a read through some of the other threads and chatted to other people before posting this.
    Below is a copy of my current eating and training schedule.
    I was hoping that if someone has a bit of spare time, they wouldn't mind giving me there advice and opinions on what you think.
    I have only been doing the diet below for around 2 weeks, before this, I had just been eating crap really, 3 times a day.
    I have my first No-gi comp coming up on the 1st of May (under 85k), and my 1st Amateur MMA comp on the 23rd May (under 84k).
    I currently weigh around 87k, so as you can see, I need to cut my weight to make these targets!
    I have cut down on alcohol and improved my eating and upped the training to what you see below. However, I have not really seen any difference in weight loss, and im getting a bit worried that im not going to end up making weight.
    I have also been told that im over training, which to be honest, some times im feeling knackered, due to training every day.
    Due to work commitments and training each night, I no longer attend a gym as I just dont have the time.

    Any advise would be appreciated. Sorry for the long post, but I thought the more info I provide the better.

    Sounds good to me mate. All I'd do is sibstitute the Cheerios for Porridge Oats...All Major brand cereals have a lot of sugars in the product that you wouldn't excect...check the packaging..

    And good luck!

    drop the carbs from your evening meal and get loads of greens in there.
    drop one of those shakes and ideally swap the other for 'real food' (half a chicken breast?)

    also change your 20 minute run to a 40 minute fast walk

    Hi mate. I've noticed that your eating a big meal 1 hour before doing thai boxing or MMA classes and you need to give yourself 2-3 hours for it to go down a little bit. The most important time to eat protein is after training as it will help aid recovery and allow protein synthesis to occur. Try eat a banana before your morning workout to give you something to kickstart the fat burning process. And cut out the l carbs in the evening! If your still finding it hard to make the weight close to the fight or on the day, wear a sweatsuit and go for a run or sauna. Once you've weighed in make sure you drink water with a pinch of salt and sugar in it to rehydrate!

    Hope this helps bro!
