Find out why the fighter’s diet is the fastest way to increase performance AND lose weight!
Why the FIGHTER’S DIET?
- GET STRONG – more energy, more power, better performance.
- GET RIPPED – lose weight, make weight, look great.
- GET IN SHAPE QUICKLY – competitive fighters have used these same dieting tactics for decades to lose weight in time for their fights.
What is the fighter’s diet?
The “fighter’s diet” is a strict diet used by competing fighters, professional and amateur, over decades with great success. The reason why it’s so popular is because it’s the fastest way to increase the fighter’s strength while decreasing his body fat.
The separation of weight classes in combat sports has made it every fighter’s goal to weigh in as low as possible. Not only do fighters have to lose weight quickly, they have to do it often. The average fighter must lose weight 5-6 times a year whereas the average person has tried weight loss maybe only a few times in his entire life.
You could definitely say that fighters are seasoned veterans when it comes to rapid weight loss. They’ve developed many tricks and secrets to rapid weight loss over the years and that’s what I plan to share.
The typical dieting experience
When I first started boxing, the only thing I cared about was increasing my physical strength. Bigger muscles, more power, more speed, more endurance—I wanted everything. My approach to dieting at the time was TRAIN ALOT & EAT ALOT. And it worked…I was ripped.
It wasn’t until I wanted to compete that I found myself in the same boat as everyone else. This included other lean fighters, bulky guys, “average” guys, the fat kids, EVERYONE. What we all had in common was the same fear—FIGHTING BIGGER OPPONENTS.
We weren’t losing weight to impress the girl next door (although that’s nice, too), we were dropping our weight as low as possible to fit into the smallest weight class possible. The smaller our opponents, the less powerful they were and the more likely we would win. We weren’t trying to win a beauty contest, we were just scared for our lives.
This fear drove many fighters into making painful mistakes. It was common to see fighters severely weakened by starvation, dehydration, or weight loss drugs. And it’s damn near impossible to win a fight when you show up at less than your best. The worst part about fighting isn’t the dieting, it’s getting destroyed when you’ve worked so hard to win.
How the 30 Day Fighter’s Diet works
The fighter’s diet, as ANY successful diet should be, is a periodized dieting program.
The average diet plan fails because it limits you to a list of “good foods” and “bad foods” and then hold you to a painfully strict diet for a set time. Sometimes, it’s a really silly rule such as “don’t eat carbs” or “eat more grapefruit” (I’m not making this up). Not only is this inflexible but also not effective for everyone. If anything, many diets require either an overly strict diet or some form of starvation to have any success!
The reason why a periodized dieting program is so much more effective is because it’s dynamic, meaning that the diet adjusts to your body as the weeks go on. Learning how to diet is really about learning how to adjust your diet every week for everlasting improvements. You wouldn’t expect to get stronger doing the same workout routine week after week, so why use the same approach with dieting?
The fighter’s diet starts you off by getting you used to eating the right foods in the right portions at the right time. As the weeks go by, you’ll learn how to trim down your portions and be more selective about what you put in your body. This process only takes 30 days. You could certainly recycle this diet over and over to maintain your health but typical fighters only need 30 days to get into optimum shape.
My proudest feature of this book is that I’ve made it as easy as possible to finally eat healthy. Once you know the rules of healthy eating, you can do whatever you want. You won’t feel limited to a few foods, or forced to become a gourmet chef. Like I said—IT’S EASY!
I’ve seen this diet tear 10-30lbs off my fighters in a month, fight after fight, year after year. And I’m confident it could work for anyone! It works even for non-athletes…although working out wouldn’t be a bad idea.
