That’s quite heavy. If he continues that, at that rate, he will easily outweigh Tyson on the night, which could slow Paul down.

It also marks a big increase from his previous cruiserweight bouts so Paul is going into unchartered waters.

With that being said, the YouTuber-turned-novice-pro-boxer has been somewhat open about the dietary and training regimen fueling that change.

Key Components of Jake Paul Boxing Diet At Heavyweight

  1. Increased Caloric Consumption: To allow muscle growth and weight gain Paul has significantly increased his daily caloric intake. While the precise figures have not been disclosed, it is clear that he’s consuming a surplus of calories required for his body’s demands. Paul likes to keep the diet simple.
  2. High-Protein Emphasis: Protein is essential for muscle repair and growth, and Paul’s diet is certainly protein-rich. Sources for Paul include lean meats, poultry, fish, eggs, and plant-based options. Such as lentils and beans.
  3. Complex Carbohydrates: These provide sustained energy for intense training sessions. Paul’s diet according to research available incorporates sometimes but not always whole grains, sweet potatoes, brown rice. Paul usually has carbs only before his workouts. Pasta is another go to for Paul.
  4. Healthy Fats: Paul is no stranger to intake of avocados, nuts, seeds, and olive oil are likely part of Paul’s meal plan, providing essential fatty acids and contributing to overall caloric intake.
  5. Hydration: Good hydration is crucial for any athlete and Paul emphasizes water intake along with electrolyte-rich minerals to support his training.
  6. Supplements: He tends to keep away from supplements. As he says there is too much rubbish in stores nowadays.
  7. Sodium – sea salt.
  8. Fruits – for the glucose he says help.
  9. Steak – cleanness of his food is important to him in proteins for post workout recovery.

Paul outside of his diet also uses a lot of cold plunges and saunas (occasionally). More so cold plunges to aid with recovery.

Overall, the increased caloric intake could strain his digestive system, necessitating careful meal planning and timing.

The main thing he appears to be doing is increasing his calories for Tyson.

Again, he’ll need to be careful with that. If it slows him down, that’s one of his main advantages (along with his youth) gone.

Against what will be a 58-year-old underdog (at the end of the day) Mike Tyson come July 20th in Texas.
