One thing to consider is that your cravings will tell you what your body needs. In my experiences I've seen people follow extremely strict diets more for the psychological need for control. Typically people don't stay on these diets as they aren't enjoyable. If you aren't acknowledging your cravings (not surrendering to them) you are probably using an incomplete diet based on your body's needs. I do recommend eating 4-6 light meals a day and drinking plenty of water.

Get a Vitamix blender and have fun with it.
One of my favorites is some ice, low-fat cream, dash of vanilla, spinach, and carrots. Instant, fairly healthy vanilla ice cream.

Also, if you are going to get on any type of rigid diet make sure you take a good multi-vitamin/mineral supplement (with food for absorption).

Seriously with a medicine ball you can do a lot of cool stuff like figure of eights, russian twists, reverse crunches, slams and all those pushup,crunches and burpee variants you can do if you have a partner to throw you it.

Thanks very much, your right, keeping the number of meals per day up is the hard part, I am a bad example of keeping to what i have planned, cravings seem to creap in all over the place. I am trying hard to stick to it tho...

Neg - I only know a little bit because ive been rweading articles and forums for a good few months as my interest in MMA grew, Keeping your eating habits to a tee is also quite expensive as steaks and meats are quite pricey for a couple of days plan....

I saw the Ultimate Fighter 9 Finale last night....Ross Pearson is an Animal...just shows what hard work and determination can get you...Lucky git!

If you want to maximise energy levels but strip body fat off, focus on keeping complex carbs to only after training as recovery with clean food at all other times.

Lots of vegetables for recovery processes and obviously protein - aim for 80-120g per day depending on your size.

As for training, you don't need to be doing long runs.

I was checking out Chuck Liddell's training and then tried to convert his mammoth workouts to something more applicable to the gym. As you'll see there is little need to separate cardio training from resistance in some cases - this will sort you out!

Check out his training here....
