"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."
Did anyone read this?? For a professional fighter, this has got to be the craziest and dumbest diet I've ever seen. With all of the money that she is making now, I'd think that Rhonda would have some top flight nutritionists consulting with her. Just about everything she said in that is backwards. Eating only once a day is not a healthy way of nutrition at all. Maybe it works for her for now, but she'll eventually have to change this. Maybe as a Fighter this is working in the short term, but hopefully some nutritionist reads this and helps her out.
