Move over Luke Cummo, you’re not the only one in the MMA scene who’s all about stupid eating habits. At The MMA Digest (pun intended, I wonder?), they spend a good portion (ha) of their time stewing (ha ha!) over the nutritional habits of their favorite fighters. Recent articles include interviews with Team Quest’s nutritionist, vegetarian Jake Shields, and hardcore vegan Mac Danzig. Check out Danzig’s crazy eating habits:
Thus on a typical day when training, Danzig will have The Ultimate Meal twice a day as a shake with banana, apple and water mixed in it. For carbohydrates purposes, a great deal of brown rice is consumed by Danzig throughout the day. One of his meals is brown rice with either tofu or some sort of vegetable, usually peas and corn. Another meal is often based around vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and some tofu. During times when Danzig is feeling a bit worn down from training, he will continue consuming greater amounts of complex carbohydrates in the form of brown rice.
Jesus H Christ … that sounds like the kind of shit you get fed in a Vietnamese prison camp. No wonder Mac Danzig is 155 pounds … I’m amazed he’s still alive. I would literally slit my wrists after three days of this diet. Of course, I can barely go more than 4 hours without ingesting a bucket of KFC marinated in mayonnaise. Mmmm … mayonnaise. Where’s my straw?
