I'm new to mma... I'm 190 lbs and i want to fight at 165... I want to lose weight while gaining strength. Can someone help point me in the right direction for my diet?

What exercise do you currently do?

just a guess :)
it really depends what area that you want to work on, try to use weight loss supplements and try to lift weights in the section you want to work on, like wrestling you should work on thighs and upper body mostly, it would probably be best to work on everything though and eat healthy get your green grub on this is my best for tips i'm not pro so i'm not for sure but i'm a pretty solid kick boxer, but here some of these links might help for workouts:

Have you ever had to cut weight before?

For exercise I work 12 hours a day and I'm on my feet walking and lifting heavy dies all day... I also run 30 minutes 3 times a week, and continue with my traditional military workouts that I am used to from when i was in the Army... Push ups, sit ups, pull ups etc... I've never had to lose weight before, i just got into a bad habit of fast food there for a while working such long shifts all the time...

Sounds like al you need to do is clean your diet up a bit.

With that amount of exercise you will definitely lose weight if you just cut the crap out of your diet.

Did you serve in Operation Freedom or Afghan.

btw: I always find it interesting when people are trying to slim down cuz I'm always trying to gain weight.

Unconventional methods but proven; try the cleanser.

- Lemonade + cayenne pepper with syrup is one method. Within a week you'll lose 10 pounds. Purges your system of impurities.
- Eat organic vegetables and fruits with limited red meat. Fish, chicken is ok...this is pretty much what I do so that's probably why I don't gain too much weight. I really wonder how the Diaz Bros and Shields train without any meat. I never thought any athletes could perform at that level with out meat in their diet. Cut out white bread, starch, potatoes, anything with gluten that has sugar which ultimately converts to lepids.
- My honest assessment is 185 is your first goal then 170. That's already 25 pounds. Anything more than that you should consult a specialist.

*Note* The Diaz Bros have one of the best cardio in the business.

Gotcha! Well hope the advice helps ya. Cutting that much weight will mean a fairly drastic change in your dieting I'd imagine. I've been thinking about slowly phasing out meat altogether. I don't eat any red meat, beef, steaks, but mainly eat chicken and fish. Although I do eat pork which is pretty bad, but I love my bacon and Carbonara pasta...haha.

Good luck! Check out the other parts of the forum.
