UFC fighter Jon Fitch’s diet
Category : Uncategorized
Jon Fitch is the #2 welterweight MMA fighter in the world in pretty much everyone’s book. (Georges St-Pierre, the consensus #1, is the only fighter to defeat Fitch in the UFC.) He’s known for a grinding fighting style, overpowering and outworking his opponents. Here’s a video he recently released showing what he eats in a typical day.
Guess what? It’s all vegan.
As Fitch says: “Nutrition from the right foods make up about 90% of our total health. So let food be your medicine and medicine be your food.”
On Saturday, Fitch fights former lightweight & welterweight champion BJ Penn at UFC 127.
Update: I just came across this post by Fitch himself over at MMA Fighting, where he explains what made him move towards veganism (The China Study played a big role). He also talks about things like strength and the protein myth. Have a look.
