Everything Ronda Rousey Eats While Training for UFC 184
You'll probably never be a UFC champion like Ronda Rousey and armbar your opponents into submission (if you're already a UFC champ, congrats!), but at least you can eat like her. Rousey's a strict proponent of The Dolce Diet, a "lean and green" way of eating that a slew of pro athletes have used to get themselves into fighting shape. In the interest of showing you what that looks like, here's what Rousey's been eating in an average day to prepare for UFC 184 against Cat Zingano on February 28th.
(Editor's Note: We didn't provide exact measurements because how much Ronda eats is considered proprietary info. The good news is that Dolce's got a cookbook if you want to make this food yourself. And you do. It's quite tasty.)
