It’s hard to imagine for a carnivore like myself that a professional fighter who devotes the majority of their days to intense physical activity is able to keep up their training levels without eating meat and dairy products on a daily basis. Jon Fitch, a converted vegetarian, however says that’s a backwards way of looking at a healthy diet. He says animal proteins are much more harmful to your body than plant proteins and milk is “one of the worst things you can put in your body.”
Maybe Fitch is right, but it seems like every time I look there’s a new study that says this or that is bad for you now. And then it’s not. And then it is again. I don’t know what to believe. Heck, one day they’re probably going to tell us that water gives you cancer. Why not? Everything else does.
