The truth is…

Fighters value hard work above all else…

But you CAN’T out train a bad diet

Harsh Reality

Most fighters wing it when it comes to nutrition, spoiling their training efforts, and are frustrated at their lack of progress either in…

  • Getting in shape and becoming a healthier, leaner, more athletic fighter
  • Recovering from training and converting their training effort into a more explosive, relentless performance
  • Making a truly competitive fight weight, and returning to full physical and cognitive capacity before climbing into the ring or cage

Although, to achieve all these things:

  • Training (fighting skill, strength and conditioning) and Recovery (sleep, rest, ) are both crucial, however…

  • Nutrition (fuelling performance, recovery, and body composition) is the essential, third factor at the foundation of your fight performance stack.

CONFIDENCE

Dan McGowan CONFIDENT

Turning up 100% on fight day requires nutritional tactics that are beyond the average fighter.

Making a life-long change to your year-round performance is just a matter of learning how to eat like a professional and removing the guesswork, so you can perform better than ever before.

If you don’t fuel for your goals, you’ll fail to meet them.

Your fuelling is unique to you, which is why so many people fail to meet aesthetic appearance goals, let alone athletic performance goals

And will certainly NEVER make a competitive class and perform well in a fight.

Working with a professional fight nutritionist not only removes the confusion, focusing effort only on what matters and when, but personalises your nutrition to suit your lifestyle and competitive schedule.

You get both the right fuel mix and fuel quantity to reach your health, fitness, physique, and athletic performance goals.

You both look like a fighter, and deliver the knockout performance to match.

But this kind of specialist support is beyond the budget of most fighters.

And good fight nutritionists can only look after so many clients at one time.

If they’re fully booked when you need help, well that’s that!

Not a great feeling when you’re ready get going now, and much worse if you have a fight date in your calendar.

James Nichol Nutritionist

Hello! I’m James.

I’m the course creator and I’ll be guiding you through step-by-step.

Early in my own fight career, I put a lot of effort into my diet.

Despite this, I didn’t get great results. This was because my effort was misdirected. I was majoring in the minors.

I created this course to help fighters avoid the same mistakes and get maximum return on investment for their efforts.

Rolling the dice

I provide straightforward, effective guidance to help you stop rolling the dice on your performance and to get on the most direct path to your goals, without wasting any time.

That’s exactly what you’ll get inside my Fighter Nutrition Course.

Everything I’ve developed and proven with fighters of all levels around the world.

Here’s what a few of them have to say (click each for more)

Madeli Marloth

From a devastating 1st round TKO loss, to… “The healthiest, most energised, strongest I’ve ever been.”

“I have never had this much energy at training and it has been a game changer for my performance.” – Maddie Marloth

“The coaching experience has been extremely helpful and educational. I paid for an excellent service at a very affordable price. I cannot thank you enough James, you have taught me a lot. I will be using your services for a very long time, and I would recommend you to anyone I feel can use your help.” – Panicos Yusuf

“I made weight easily for my fight, I was properly fuelled for each session, I had great energy all fight camp and in my fight I was full of energy and got that win!! I couldn’t recommend James enough, his knowledge of nutrition is insane, he’s never too busy for me & I’m so happy to have him on my team.” – Shannon Kelly

“I have already seen massive improvements in training and competing. Since following James’s plan I’ve had some of my best performances in the ring. Making weight has become so much easier now following a plan rather than stressing about it while trying to train.” – Connor Ramsey

This is the MOST COMPREHENSIVE combat sports nutrition course there is.

With this information, you’ll be able to tailor your nutrition to your primary goals all 52 weeks of the year.

Frequently Asked Questions

We completely understand. It’s tough to be a fighter. It’s rarely a money sport, and you’ve got other bills to cover, including your training, food, rent, and all your other life expenses.

We’ve been in this boat ourselves. Many pro fighters don’t make a huge amount of money in this sport.

So we’ve made this as cost-efficient as possible, to allow dedicated fighters to get all the benefits of a personal nutritionist, without the massive price tag that comes with working with someone in person.

And not only do you get full access to all the course modules, instructional videos, calculation tools, and meal plans for life…

This system is also designed to significantly contribute to every fighter’s “performance stack”, providing improving recovery and providing raw materials to reduce injury or heal quicker .

By following this program you will significantly fortify your body, and are likely to spend much less money fixing injuries in the long run.

There are cashflow-friendly monthly instalment payment plans for those who can’t afford full payment straight away, but are committed to joining the course and optimising their nutrition to meet their goals.

This course is suitable for anyone who trains in a combat sport and wants to improve their health, performance, and body composition.

This course covers all aspects of nutrition as it relates to combat sports performance. There is an entire phase with over 1 hour of content breaking down your Year-round Nutrition, to achieve your health, performance, and body composition goals as a combat sports practitioner.

In addition to this, the Fight Camp phase is ideal for setting up a fat loss diet and timeline, whilst preserving performance to the highest degree. Whether or not you have a fight at the end of the timeline is irrelevant, the outcome is a reduction in body fat and maintenance of muscle mass, without sacrificing performance in the gym. Who wouldn’t want that?!

Finally, the Post-fight phase will help support your transition away from fat loss towards maintaining your new healthy weight in a controlled and structured manner, rather than continually yoyoing as many dieters end up doing.

It’s only the Weight Cut and Refuel phases that would be less relevant if you don’t plan to fight. I would argue that the value contained within every single module is worth the entire course fee alone, and as a non-fighter, you can apply everything from the year-round performance, fight camp, and post-fight modules. Plus, if you ever do decide to step in the ring…your weight cut and refuel are already sorted as a bonus!

In short, yes. The information provided can be tailored to suit your dietary requirements. The course is set up in a flexible way that doesn’t require you to eat exact, specific foods.

Rather than only providing meal plans, which are very limited, I teach you the theory behind the inclusion of each food. In addition, I provide a range of example foods that fit these criteria. This means you can choose to include or swap any foods that fit within your dietary requirements and preferences.

This course covers both the principles and methods you need to achieve your health, performance, and body composition goals; so, it can be tailored to any style of eating.

Finally, the Post-fight phase will help support your transition away from fat loss towards maintaining your new healthy weight in a controlled and structured manner, rather than continually yoyoing as many dieters end up doing.

It’s only the Weight Cut and Refuel phases that would be less relevant if you don’t plan to fight. I would argue that the value contained within every single module is worth the entire course fee alone, and as a non-fighter, you can apply everything from the year-round performance, fight camp, and post-fight modules. Plus, if you ever do decide to step in the ring…your weight cut and refuel are already sorted as a bonus!

I’m a big proponent of individualised nutrition. Simply put, cookie-cutter approaches rarely work out when it comes to nutrition. For this reason, it was essential that I was able to provide the ability to personalise your nutrition within this course. This is achieved via two means:

#1. Detailed calculators that use your personal data to individualise nutrition recommendations to your exact requirements, for every single phase.

#2. Education on the underlying theory (principles) behind the methods. You will know exactly what to do, but you’ll also understand why you’re doing it.

This knowledge will allow you to pick your preferred method (e.g., choosing to include chicken, beef, yoghurt, lentils, etc. in your diet) that adheres to the principle (e.g., consuming adequate protein).

Where possible, I also give ranged recommendations and explanations when there’s room for flexibility within these principles.

Every phase contains a number of example meal plans. The purpose of these is to translate my nutrition recommendations into full days of eating, to give you a starting point to build out from and to help reduce decision fatigue.

If you just want to know what to eat, you have these to work from as a “built-for-you” starting point. But, you’ll also have the education to tweak and adjust these meal plans to suit your preferences and needs, whilst still staying on track towards your goals.

This course is not appropriate for those with a diagnosed eating disorder. If you have previously been diagnosed with an eating disorder, then I recommend you work 1-on-1 with a healthcare professional who is suitably qualified to support within this realm.

No. This course is not a qualification that allows you to become an insurable, practicing nutritionist. That is a much longer, more expensive process and requires an in-depth understanding of nutrition science.

If you are interested in becoming a fully qualified nutritionist, James Nichol studied with Mac Nutrition Uni. They are hands down the best option outside of a university degree (and many would argue is even superior to). You can read more about becoming a qualified nutritionist here.

If you decide to sign up to MNU after clicking that link, James will get a £150 kickback. If you enter the code “MNUfriend” at the checkout, YOU will also get £100 off your enrolment fee.

More of what others have to say…

“James made it clear that I wasn’t eating anywhere near enough to fuel my workouts in camp. Following his guidance, I felt fit and strong the whole way through camp and was definitely in the best shape I’ve been in preparation for a fight. He made my weight cut a breeze and will 100% be working with him again for future fight camps.” – Callum Stanley

“I was in a state of panic when I reached out, but things worked out so well. My mind was at peace during training because I knew exactly what to eat and when to eat and the weight just started falling off. In the ring I felt so good and strong.” – Elia Dewu

“I never thought I could be eating so much during fight camp. My health and energy level is at its best and it can only get better under the guidance of James. Hiring him is a no brainer, it is one of the best investments I made.” – Simon Ho

“Some huge increases this week. I am faster and lighter in sparring and less fatigued. LOVE THIS. I fully attribute it to the diet. Thank You. My husband and I are both amazed at how good and accurate your diet plan has been. We have tried other companies. No one has “gotten it” like you.” – Kaitlyn Routledge

“Best weight cut yet. All thanks to my nutritionist James Nichol Nutrition, can’t express my gratitude enough! This is the professional to talk to. He is very thorough and has everything done to a science. I am the best version of my fighting self with James Nichol Nutrition in my corner.” – Maria Djukic

“I’m forever grateful to James for taking me on at my worst and helping me turn my life around. My confidence is back. I feel so much more happy as a human being, and I feel that is reflected in the 21kg of weight loss. The results really do speak for themselves and I feel so good all the time now, so light on my feet, not just physically but mentally.” – Sam Barnes
