When I started boxing again, I trained my ass off and got from 205lbs. to 175lbs. I get down to 170 right before a fight but I gain back 5 to 10lbs after the fight which leaves me at 175 to 180lbs. I want to get down to 155 to 160lbs. I bust my ass when I train but my eating habits are terrible. If I can't sleep at night I eat and when I reward myself with a little bit of fast food I go overboard. I spend money on fat burners but they don't do enough. Please, can somebody on BS tell me what I can do? Is there a way to maybe trick the mind or body into eating less or eating right all the time?

This sums it up. You need to get dedicated. That is what life is all about. You need to put in the work and stop eating all the crap.

Every time you start eating crap, ask yourself

"How bad do you want to box?"

Once you answer that question, you'll drop the junk and head for the nearest fruit stand.

just like the above guy said, give yourself a mantra.

not a day goes by where i dont crave a plate of chicken fingers, a pack of cigarettes, and a 40. but i just ask myself, "two minutes of pleasure, or a lifetime of payoff?" and usually put it out of my mind.

also, drinking ridiculous amounts of water will curb your appetite. i drink like 8-10 glasses with every meal.

Even the George Foreman grill won't save you alone. Just re-stock your food supplies with lots of healthy stuff and stick to a great diet. Dedication is important so you should view your diet as just as important as your training regime.

Good luck.

Mostly it has to do with motivation. Eating is a natural impulse. Eat things that maintain a steady blood sugar, like multiple grains and a balance of fat, carbs, and proteins. The worst thing about boxing is making a weight. Also, one should know his body fat percentage. Anything below 5% is lean. O% will lose you the fight, as you will have no energy reserves. Ask Joe Manley....

That's what I'm talking about! I know everything about dieting and calories,carbs,fat % etc. But what I need is the words to play in my mind that I don't need burgers and fries, chuletas(for all those Puertoricans who know what I'm talking about). I'm lucky if I stay foccused for three days and after that I can't remember how I got that far. I'm doing good today just because of this reply from saq26. So keep it going, please. The more ideas I get the more weight I lose.

lol, its nice being the resident massive weight loss expert.

it can be hard to keep on a diet, especially a strict one, once the results arent showing. i mean, when you step on the scale losing a half pound a day, its fun, and you start to like being on a diet. but sometimes you hit plateaus, and youll be bustin your ass and seeing nothing.

personally, i dont think youll run into that problem. it sounds like you have a really good workout regime, and that coupled with a good diet will have you shedding pounds like they were pubes.

Take cellmass after every workout and use thermogain daily. This is a cheaters approach but the cellmass is great for muscle recovery and the thermogain will definately cause your fat to go down a lot and not affect your muscles. I mean by that, break them down or anything.
This should work quite good for you. It is pricy.

Dude, I'm done with supplements except for the occassional six-week fat burner pills and protien. I spent too much money at GNC and all I got was really big and muscular. I'm only 5'7". and I'm ripped but truthfully I need to loose the mass. That's why I stopped lifting and went back to textbook boxing exercize routines. I lost some wheight because I lost muscle but my endurance and conditioning has improved. If you ask me, I would rather look like a boxer than a power lifter. Thank you for the advice though.

Forget the CellMass if you use Thermogain you will retain the muscle and lose the fat. Unless you want to lose hard earned muscle.......

Just try a diet that works well for you. You just have to stick it out. I was and still am a bit out of shape so I just decided **** it Im just gonna start eating healthy. It was hard as hell for first couple of weeks, but then I got used to it and it worked for me, I lost 30 pounds and have about 10 more to go. I ****ed up about 2 weeks ago and let myself cheat for a week. Dont do it! Once you get that mindset that youll be ok with one cheat here and there it turns into more and more untill you end up gaining back some of the weight. You just have to have the will power bro, and your already half way there with the way you work out.

Also little things that help me. If your hungry in between meals, try to snack on peanuts. Its naturally good for you and fills you up better than most snacks. Try to drink more fluids as well.

Yeah, you know what? That's exactly the problem that most of us on a diet face. Control. Most of my diets have a 1-cheat meal a week pattern but it's hard not to keep cheating. As far as the peanut idea, it's a good one. I'll try it. I don't think drinking water is going to be a problem since It's getting retarded hot out here in the dezert. We have no choice but to drink allot of water and Gatorade because we are constantly losing electrolites, salt and water.

I have an Everlast sauna suit and it has helped me but I've been slacking off at wearing it. I will use it though. My friends say that when I run I look like a runaway trash bag. **** em.

even if you're training awesome, just eating a lil bit of bad **** can **** you right up. i had the same problem as u, i was a middleweight but now i can barely make the weight limit and i'm way better shape than now than when i was younger, faster, and stronger. u gotta tell yourself that all that fast food and sugar ( especially the sugar ) is just ****ing fat, and that's all it is, so u don't eat it anymore. for me, it doesn't matter, i can't box anymore, so i'm gonna be a coach, but for u kid, if yo're serious U HAVE TO MAKE WEIGHT, being in shape can make or break u in this game. i know, i lost fights i should have won because i wasn't eating or training properly
