Re-Fuel Process 1 – Post Weigh-in
A good number of years ago now, I had my second, and last, Muay Thai fight. I was 2kg over weight and was instructed to eat and drink nothing in the morning and sit in a sauna until I sweated the weight off of me. Even though I was sweating like OJ when he was trying on the glove, I still struggled to get my weight down. By the time the fight came, I was still dehydrated and felt exhausted when warming up.

He was and still is on a winning streak and was already pretty damn lean. However, after digging into what Cian had been doing nutritionally up to this point, we needed to implement some extremely important changes into his diet.

I wanted to do a no-holding-back, everything-in-the-open, complete run down of the principles that guide optimal nutrition programming for a competitive fighter be it MMA, boxing, Muay Thai, kickboxing, etc. I packed in a lot of information into this piece, so for the sake of space and convenience I have broken this into a 4-part series of posts.

It does not refer to losing body fat, per se. This of course is based off a hour lag time between the weigh-in and the fight. In sports where there is a much shorter period between weigh-in and competing, then weight cutting in this way is a disaster. For example, in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu BJJ where weigh-ins take place just before competition, then any attempts to cut weight will fuck you over performance wise, regardless of how much of an advantage you feel being heavier than your opponent will bring. The process lots of fighters go through is sub-optimal at best.
