So i'm new to mma and looking to do training..

First off, i'm new to the forum so i'd like to say hello to everyone.

I've been watching mma for a while now and recently i've been thinking about doing some training so i'd like to ask for advice, any help is appreciated.

I'll give you a quick background on me:

I'm 6'4'', 12 stone (168lbs), 24 years old. My only real experience in martial arts is around a years training in Krav Maga.
I have been smoking cigarettes for 9 years unfortunately and currently i'm a heavy smoker.

in the last few months I have been doing exercises called complexes and last monday I attended a Muay Thai class with a friend.

Two of my friends are attending different martial arts atm and i'm trying to decide what would be the best thing for me to go for. I'm uncertain and would appreciate input.
The choices are as follows: Muay Thai, BJJ, Judo, Submission Wrestling or Capoeira.
Would ye recommend trying to do all of these or would certain ones in paticular be worth focusing on?

Currently my diet would be pretty average not overly healthy and I think I might be eating too little.
A typical day for me is some fruit, the odd sandwich and probably a frozen pizza for dinner and herbal tea and a lot of cigarettes throughout the day.
Basically what type of food do ye recommend and do ye recommend trying to maintain my weight or trying to gain?

Just so ye know, if I can get going properly with this I am willing to change my lifestyle to improve my fitness and fighting technique.

Thanks for reading and once again all input is appreciated. Be as critical as you like I don't mind as long as it's constructive criticism.

Ohhh another krav maga lover.

Like I'm sure people have already told you, BJJ is really important. You should also go with muay thai and wrestling.
