Rondasaurus feeds but once per day

Ronda Rousey breaks down her diet for UFC.com:

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. I usually eat between 4 and 10 (p.m.). As far as supplements go, I don’t take anything that is made in a lab. If it was on earth 10,000 years ago then I will eat it.

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. A lot of athletes try to put a bunch of chemicals in their bodies, as much as they can get away with. I try to make everything as clean as possible, you know I even use a water alkanalizing machine and I try to only drink out of glass bottles when I can (to avoid petrochemicals). I try to only drink high quality water as well.

I thought it was crazy at first. Especially since breakfast was, and still is, my favorite meal. I like having a big breakfast, a medium (sized) lunch, a tiny dinner and I would usually go to bed hungry. It took a while to get used to but I don’t really get hungry during the day anymore. 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.

There weren’t really hunger pains when I switched to the diet. You’re just used to eating, you’re sitting around and you’re bored … sometimes you just want to eat to keep yourself occupied. But as long as I’m busy – and I’m busy a lot these days so I’m run ragged all day long – I just pretty much need coffee and I’m cool.

He (her nutritionist) wanted to take coffee out of my diet at first; we had to have a little bit of a discussion. I was like, ‘I don’t care what I have to do, but I NEED COFFEE! So that’s why we grind up a bunch of wheatgrass, parsley, cilantro and sprouts every morning – a green shot – and I take that every morning to try and combat my addiction to coffee.

A guy named Chad Waterbury handles my nutrition. I got it all from him. 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.

This makes me feel better about myself. I drink gallons of coffee every day and then have one big meal at McDonalds. I’m pretty sure chicken nuggets were wandering the earth 10,000 years ago.

    Its a fascinating journey!

    Much more scientific then my go to,
    vodka and burrito’s!

  • noiseless

    i used to come here for the podcasts….. anyway, i wanna read more about kaufman on fightlinker. she seems cool. and she has been working real hard for that twatflaunting judo princess there. yeah.

  • shane

    this is the dumbest shit ever. ahhh well I should not have expected her to be smart to go with the hot.

  • Reverend Clint

    one meal a day? even I dont do that because its bad for your body and wont help you lose weight. Your body will just think its in a famine situation and store fat

  • kvelertak at work

    Dolce says Coffee is good for you before training.

    Goddamn I’ll be glad when this girl fight is over with so people can stop talking about armbar wonder over here.

  • Fightlinker

    And talk about all the amazing things going on in male mma like … uh. Hmmm. The stuff going down in October and December I guess?

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    I think Ryan has gone past the attraction level with Honda and is now trying to intentionally overexpose her.

    He’s doing what Strikeforce could never do – make Kaufman (a fellow Canadien) popular.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Also, Ryan, you know Jacare is fighting on that same card, right? Didn’t you used to like grapplers?

  • TheButtStrangler

    Fightlinker is an extension of Ryans Id.

    And none of us could actually do better,
    so he has an arguable right to Ronda Rousy board us.

  • voice of reason

    that diet is fucking retarded. that nutritionist should be sued for fraud. and ronda is retarded for doing it, but it’s not her job, her job is to be good at judo, not science.

  • voice of reason

    ‘so you have more energy when you’re not digesting food.’

    ALL THE STARVING AFRICAN KIDS MUST HAVE SO MUCH ENERGY THEN
