A good way for athletes to make sure they drink enough water is to look at their pee color yes, that's right! If it's light yellow, the athlete is well hydrated and shouldn't try to drink more. Combat sports athletes, especially judo, need more protein and less carbohydrates.
Diet with less carbohydrates can impair the work of muscles for prolonged activity but overall can help maximize performance for brief and very intensive fights, especially for Judo. It also helps when you have to make weight during the year. MMA athletes on the other hand, and to a lesser extend BJJ athletes, can intake more carbohydrates than judo athletes as their bouts typically last longer. For exact quantities of protein vs carbohydrates, please check with a nutritionist on customizing a program for you.
Simple carbohydrates such sugar in any other forms such as sweet drinks should be avoided. For example, foods that should be avoided for combat sports athletes are pizza, doughnuts, biscuits and so on. Similar food that should be avoided are french fries, bagels, potato chips etc. As such, athletes should consult a nutritionist if they should take additional food supplements.

Thinking in a no limits fashion, with no vilification of any foods, but with the goal of having a calculated and well budgeted ingredients list, organized by time of meal, and training sessions, and rest sessions; my thoughts on the diet, and the information and diet plans I am able to find, feel too loose.
