Did you know that the original UFC bad boy Nate Diaz is a Vegan!? After his victory over UFC Superstar Connor McGregor in UFC196, Nate opened up about his vigorous training routine and his strict Vegan diet to which he said contributed to his epic victory over the Irishman.
During one of his post match interviews Nate went on to say “I like to promote the Vegan industry, I hear a lot of criticism from people saying you need meat to be strong and for recovery, and it’s a bunch of bullshit, because I train harder than everybody. It’s so easy to argue with these people. I’m like, ‘Dude, have you done a tenth of what I’ve done?’”
Nate has been a Vegan since the age of 18, his favourite meals include Tofu Twists, Bean-based Pastas and a wide variety of nuts, fruits and vegan protein powders similar to our Ve-POWER Anabolic Mass Gainer which provides you with 50g of plant based protein with each serving!
Nate isn’t the only Vegan in his family, his brother Nick, who also fights within the UFC is a dedicated Vegan and a mean fighter in the ring!
Well done Nate, we here at Ve-POWER Salute you!
