What does the leading lady in the UFC eat when preparing for a fight? Ronda Rousey shared her meal plan and daily schedule with espnW’s Allison Glock during a recent interview. Rousey shared, “I try to keep healthy-ish, but I’m so on point when I’m in camp that having a vegetable wrap would actually only be healthy-ish because of the wrap on it.” She’s not all the different from a physique competition by sticking to a healthy plan.

10:00 am: Train

4:00 pm: Snack: one apple, one-fourth cup raw almonds, one-fourth cup raw cashews
6:00 pm: Train – Post-exercise smoothie, da, da, da.

Ronda Rousey: Everything’s got an hour, an amount, everything.
Allison Glock: And you follow it to the letter?
Ronda Rousey: Yeah. And instead of vitamins, I have this giant shake twice a day, so it’s all fresh vegetables and fruits: a whole beet, a whole apple, two carrots, four strawberries, one cup of blueberries, two handfuls of red grapes, one whole lemon, one handful of spinach, one handful of kale, one-fourth handful of parsley, two stalks of celery, two tablespoons of hemp seeds, two tablespoons of chia seeds, one tablespoon of coconut oil, one chard leaf, no stem.
