Anthony Joshua’s Diet Revealed

After his weigh-in for his fight against Otto Wallin, Chef Wesley Cannonier revealed that AJ consumed a meal consisting of steak, potato, courgette, and broccoli to try and eat a heavy-carb intake to give him energy for his fight.

Whilst in camp, the former unified Heavyweight champion eats five meals a day. He will start the day with breakfast, followed by a snack to eat either whilst he’s training or on the way back from training.

Then he’ll have lunch after his first session and fuel up with snacks either before, during or after his second training session followed by an evening meal after his second session.

His evening snacks typically contain of a raw egg shake – 5-6 eggs, pineapple, apple, and cashew nuts. AJ’s go-to breakfast is scrambled eggs.

When Joshua does have a lighter training session though, he will lower his carb intake and eat lighter meals. On rest days, the Watford-born boxer eats fewer meals and fewer snacks as his body doesn’t need a surplus of calories.

Anthony Joshua consumes a stunning 5,000-5,500 calories a day.

“He’s got to maintain that weight”, revealed Chef Cannonier to Matchroom Boxing, “He’s not going to drop weight and he’s not going to gain weight because he trains so hard, it’s more just fuel in the body to perform so it’s gonna prevent muscle damage and repair for when the fight happens.”

“If we’re in camp, we try and source food from the coasts. We’ll source food that is local from farmers, not many pesticides/things are gonna be added to the food, it’s as natural as possible.”

Cannonier revealed that Joshua was ‘one of the most disciplined athletes’ he’d worked with in recent times.
