Nutrition and Weight Cutting Guidelines

The nutritional side of Muay Thai and other combat sports is often overlooked by all levels of Nak Muay. If you want to get the most out of your training, recover quicker, and compete at higher levels, you HAVE to adapt healthy eating habits.

Besides eating healthy, you also have to know how to cut weight properly. Cutting weight sucks, but if you do it the right way, it won’t suck nearly as much. I know way too many fighters who are hurting their bodies and doing long term damage because of the way they cut weight. Don’t be that guy or girl!

Take care of your nutrition so it’ll take care of your body, and take care of your body so it will take care of you.
