Boxing Nutrition: Most common diet mistakes

By Dr. Philip Goglia, WBC Nutrition Committee Chairman.

Caloric reduction or restriction. Reliance on supplementation over food and exercise. Expecting and deserving results too quickly rather than investing in the journey and lifestyle aspects of nutrition and exercise and the life lessons accountability learned from the successes and obstacles.

Lack of hydration. Placing the importance of exercise over proper food patterning.

Adversarial vs advocacy of foods – the thought that food should be calorically restrictive as it is the thing that makes us fat. The belief that the afternoon pastry or chocolate bar will fix a bad hair day or a tough day at work.
