Healthy Eating Guideline Tip #1
Don't Diet You Fool
A diet implies that your only doing it for a certain amount of time - therefore dieting never works.In order to be a successful athlete in an area, especially MMA, you have to adopt healthy eating habits throughout your everyday life.
Now some diets have good tips on healthy eating, and by all means if some ‘diets’ sounds like your type of meal plan than by all means take whatever you can from it... just when people ask you what you eat, don’t say “I follow this and that diet”, say “I’m badass - I don't do diets”
Ultimately what you want to develop is a long, healthy, smart eating style that works for you and pleases your taste buds without sacrificing nutrition. Everyone is different so you have to experiment with certain foods to see how your body reacts to them and then take it from there.
