MMA Fighter Diet Plan

I really don’t like doing diet plans, especially on blog posts.

Everyone has a different opinion about what a diet should look like:
Intermittent fasting (all different protocols)
Dairy free
Wheat free
Ketogenic diet
High carb
Low carb
etc etc

Here’s what I typically eat to support training and working in an office:

10g Glutamine in water and a probiotic tablet

1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water

Small slice of garlic
Half an avocado
30g Dried coconut Milk Powder
10ml Olive oil
10ml fish oil
2 bananas
30/40g of Hemp protein or hemp seeds.

Throughout the morning – Ginger tea
5 slices of ginger, in hot water, in a flask.

Either oat cakes with peanut butter or a handful of almonds and cashews.

Large salad and ham/tuna bap (I usually put a bag of plain crisps on the bap ‘for extra calories’

Hemp protein drink with flaxseed powder

Half an avocado
30g Dried coconut Milk
10ml Olive oil
10ml fish oil
2 bananas
30/40g of Hemp protein or hemp seeds.

varies but as an example:
Homemade chicken curry with brown rice

Smoothie without the fish oil
3 ZMA tablets

I also supplement with Acetyl L-Carnitine, Gingko biloba and Meriva Curcumin (great anti-inflammatory)


On Training Days
I’ll eat the same up until 4pm
Post training I’ll normally have a protein drink with hemp protein, creatine, leucine, maltodextrin and a banana eaten separately.
