Past weekend I spent 18 hours in a lecture room at the University of Sports, listening to a presentation by Alan Aragon (https://alanaragon.com). Alan is probably the scientific authority when it comes to nutritional research. The event was hosted by the continuous education board (https://www.bspa-fortbildungsakademie.at) of the national sports academy (http://www.bspa.at), a government-run education program for sports and fitness professionals here in Austria. Among other topics, Alan elaborated on the scientific state of the art regarding macronutrient timing and construction, meal frequency, dietary supplements, muscle gain and fat loss. The presentation was concise and well-delievered, which comes at no surprise when consisting Alan's professional standing.

I'm currently in the process of making weight for the NMAC Battle of Vienna. I'll be competing for the first time in quite a while under a limited MMA rule set. I compete I the -70my division. Weigh I will be on competition day, so I can't cut a lot of water weight. This means I have to make smart use of my nutrition skills to get down to something around 72kg and then cut the last 3%. Currently, my intake is at 2000kcal.
On this occasion, I thought I 'd share some of the recipes that help me get through the day, perform at an acceptable level and retain as much muscle as I can despite my hypocaloric diet.
