Geordie Shore star Aaron Chalmers is fuelling his switch from the octagon to the boxing ring with a mammoth 3,000 calories a day diet.
33-year-old Chalmers announced his retirement from mixed martial arts in February of this year, leaving with a record of 5-2.
After starting in BAMMA in 2017, Chalmers switched to Bellator 12 months later, with his final bout coming in March of 2020.
Since calling time on his MMA career it has subsequently been revealed he will join Adam Booth’s gym ahead of a potential boxing career.
Chalmers assured fans it won’t be a ‘celebrity boxing’ stint with all eyes on a credible series of fights.
As well as training the reality TV star, Booth has a stable of rising talent including Josh Kelly, Michael Conlan and Shannon Courtenay.
It was ‘Pretty Boy’ Kelly that let the cat out of the bag regarding the next stage of Chalmers’ combat career, hinting at a fight between him and YouTube star Jake Paul.
"Jake Paul's never a cruiserweight, either. He should be getting that weight off, getting down,” he told Matchroom’s podcast in February.
"Aaron's got what, nearly what three million followers on Instagram and Twitter? If that fight doesn't sell what will?"
While Conlan added: "Aaron will f*** Jake Paul up. I will say it now, he will f*** Jake Paul up.
"Jake Paul's a b****. He'll f*** him up. Simple as that."
In order to get him ready for his boxing debut, Chalmers has enlisted the help of nutritionist Mike Naylor and chef Omar Meziane.
According to the Sun, Chalmers will look to consume around 3,000 calories every day, with a detailed training plan working alongside his diet.

A normal day will see the boxing hopeful consume muesli for breakfast, before wolfing down Oregano roasted chicken with Milanese sauce, pasta, lentils and vegetables for lunch.
After working out with Booth, Kelly, Conlan & Co. he will be given a snack of Chicken gyoza or Thai chicken skewers.
It’s then steak and hot potato salad for dinner, as well as some banana bread as a snack.

Asked about his eating habits, Chalmers said: "Diet is crucial towards my training.
"Eating the right foods, at the right time ensures that I have enough energy to not only get me through my session, but also to support with my recovery.
"It’s more than just healthy eating – it’s eating appropriately at the right time.
"You can eat all the salads in the world, but that won’t help you build muscle or in the run up to a fight when you need slow releasing energy to see you through."
