In fact, he is so strict about the diet that he follows it through the year and not just for his training. He likes to look after his body no matter what day of the year it is and that is quite impressive. He says,

“Yeah. I take my shit seriously. I don’t eat white rice, cheese, or gluten. Everything I eat flows through my body well, so I keep a good weight. I don’t eat spicy foods or things that make me feel bloated. I’m eating well even when I’m not training.

All of that comes from experience. It doesn’t happen overnight. I’ve always been quite conscious of what I put in my body. Now, there are so many ways to eat healthily: vegetarian, veganism, pescetarianism. Everyone is talking about trends like these, and I’m quite aware of them. By doing my research, I get to see maximum improvements from what I eat.

When you first start fighting, it happens every month or every other month, so you have to stay active. Then, you get to the stage where you’re fighting three times a year, with months off in between. But staying at your fight weight is the only way to be a champion for more than one or two defenses. You have to stay ready.”

To maintain his balance and energy level, Joshua takes this type of diet so that he can put a lot of hours into the training. His everyday workout schedule includes Cardio, weight training, boxing training, etc. For a change and to maintain his momentum,  Joshua definitely has a meal called a cheat meal i.e. chocolate.
