Like I stated, these are MY diet rules. But I think all martial artists should be doing weights, and protein helps the muscles rebuild. Post workout you need some quick carbs, some slow carbs and protein. Additionally, when the body metabolises protein it has to raise the body temperature to do that, and that burns more calories. Another way to, coupled with smaller more frequent meals to burn more resting and stay lean. ;)

Good info PizD, but could you elaborate on why you need more protein calories than fat calories?
I'm currently eating about a 2400 calorie a day diet that's about 55% carbs, 25% protein and 20 percent fat.
