Healthy eating: Feed the fighter within.

healthy meal

When it comes to eating we all know that there are perks that come with a healthy and balanced diet, the problem is, if you’re like me, you don’t particularly like eating healthy. I for one much prefer snacking on sugary treats and drinks as well as sitting down for playing a few hours of Battlefield or Call of Duty with a nice plate of pizza or curry which, as you can imagine… Isn’t the most healthy of diets. It is hard to say what the ideal diet is so I’m not going to hammer one particular diet plan into your mind because everyone has a different body and numerous things such as metabolism and level of health play important factors in determining what type of diet is correct for each individual. But saying that, it is clear to see that not eating a balanced diet will adversely effect your health in a negative way. Even i you go to the gym four or 5 times a week, you’ll be making those sessions pointless if you’re piling down the calories as soon as you leave.

It is important to also consider that if you’re looking to gain muscle you’ll need a calorie surplus, where your body has more than just the calories it needs to maintain itself so that there is energy and calories left to repair and grow further levels of muscle mass. However, as important as a calorie surplus is, it is important to make sure you achieve it through eating the correct foods, it won’t work if you hit this surplus via eating cakes and fizzy drinks, you need to do it with a balanced diet of healthy sugars from fruit, carbohydrates such as brown bread, rice and pasta and numerous forms of protein that can be found in multiple types of food items such as meat and muscle supplements. Remember to enhance your muscle growing and boxing capability to keep up with gym and boxing training to get the most out of your body. So the moral of the story for this post is consider the dietary information of what you’re eating before you eat it, plan what your’re going to eat for the day as that’ll help a lot and last but not least, drop the crisps and do some dips!
