Yahoo! Sports looked at the vegetarian habits of fighters last week, with their motives both humanitarian and for health. In this video, Jon Fitch talks about his issues with milk. (Note: Fitch isn't a registered dietician, so take his advice with the recommended dosage of salt.)
Has anyone told Fitch that milk is delicious? Because it is and I am enjoying a glass of yummy skim milk as I type this.
Fighters have worked plenty of different diet plans, everything from Diego Sanchez and stevia to the popular Dolce Diet and Fuel the Fighter. The important thing to remember is that fighters' should be finely tuned to their training because they expend an insane amount of calories in training, and they have to time their eating habits around weighing in and fight night. That doesn't mean their nutrional choices are wrong, but their needs are very different than an average Joe or Jane.
