The Ultimate Guide to Nutrition for Fighters and Grapplers
By Corey Beasley
Whether you're trying to improve your performance, gain muscle, lose bodyfat, or recover from tough workouts, nutrition is an essential piece of the puzzle.
Why do people struggle with their eating habits?
All of us have habits...some good, some bad. We can break those bad habits and replace them with better ones, but that takes effort. Many people can tackle change in one area of their life but struggle or resist change in others. You might be willing to learn new techniques and practice more often, but resist the idea of shopping, cooking or making better choices when you eat.
One way to start eating better is to educate yourself. If you are clueless in the kitchen, like me, then maybe learning a few basics, will help you improve.
Below, we've gathered a bunch of resources to help you improve your eating habits.
