7 Simple MMA Nutrition Tips for Cutting Weight and Performing at Your Best

"If you're an MMA fighter looking to make weight, I have some news for you: there are no shortcuts. No super supplement or easy way out. The only way to cut weight and perform at your best is by eating quality foods.

Sure, you may have tried diets, starvation, sweating it out, and taking supplements, but the truth is that few fighters truly understand the basics of nutrition. It's not rocket science, but it does take effort and discipline.

Here are 7 simple MMA nutrition tips that can help you improve your eating habits:

  1. Prepare for the week: Don't wait until you're hungry to figure out what to eat. Plan your meals, grocery shop, cook, and prepare snacks in advance so you're always ready for the week ahead.

  2. Surround yourself with good food: Keep a cooler with you at all times, filled with water, meals, snacks, and vitamins. This takes some getting used to, but it will pay off in the long run.

  3. Get rid of the bad stuff: Don't keep junk food in your house. If it's there, you'll eat it. Get rid of chips, crackers, cookies, ice cream, candy, soda, packaged meals, and other processed foods.

  4. Keep a food log: Writing down what you eat and when will help you become more aware of your true eating habits. Keep it simple: just write down what you eat and when for 2 weeks.

  5. If God made it, eat it: With so many conflicting diet books out there, it can be hard to know what to eat. Keep things simple by sticking to whole, natural foods that are closest to their original form.

  6. Hydrate: Drink plenty of water and avoid sugary drinks.

  7. Listen to your body: Eat when you're hungry and stop when you're full. Pay attention to how different foods make you feel and adjust your diet accordingly.

Remember, good nutrition is not an option when it comes to winning fights. It's a necessity. Make it a priority and stick to it."
