UFC FIT: Making Weight with Ryan Jimmo

Canadian light heavyweight Ryan Jimmo tells UFC 360 how he makes his target weight in eight weeks.
Off-season eating habits: “I’ll start making healthier choices for the first two or three weeks. After that, I start keeping track of how many cheat meals I’m eating each week and lowering that number—from seven to five to three and so on.

"Then about six weeks before a fight, I start to count calories and create a lot of little paradigm shifts in my diet, which includes gradually reducing how many calories I’m eating. In that final week, I’ll only eat between 1,500 to 2,000 a day, depending
on what my energy needs are each day.”

Post-fight eating habits: “When I’m three or four months from a fight, I usually put on a few pounds and might weigh around 235 on average, but I’ve been as heavy as 247 pounds.”

Toughest foods to give up: “I go through all these phases where I may like pizza for a while or ice cream, but McDonald’s Sausage McMuffin is a constant when I want to eat something bad. There have been times where I’ve been up at 2:00 in the morning and thought to myself, ‘If I stay up for three more hours, I can get there when they open at five.’ I swear, I’m that bad with them.”

His secret weapon: “I have to eat almost like a bodybuilder, although I tend to eat a few more carbs. But I tend to look at everything I eat as a source of something—protein, carbs, fats, etc. So instead of choosing something to eat because I’m in the mood for a particular food, I’ll pick most of what I eat based on how much energy they give me, how they may help burn fat, or how they may build muscle.”
