Strikeforce bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey reveled her diet that keep her in perfect shape and energetic. The crazy part is that it’s not much a diet at all.
“It’s kind of a combination of The Paleo and The Warrior diet. I pretty much eat one meal a day – which takes place at night… There is one exception to all of this each day: I get to have coffee every morning. That’s the only thing I really fudge on… I thought it was crazy at first. Especially since breakfast was, and still is, my favorite meal… I sleep a lot better than I used to and I have a lot more time because I’m not planning meals all day long… The philosophy is, when you’re digesting food then your body wants to rest. If you’re hungry then your body wants to go and get food. So you have more energy when you’re not digesting food. So I can get more out of training on an empty stomach than I would on a full stomach.”
Rousey defends her belt tonight against contender Sarah Kaufman in San Diego.
