In a recent interview with Croatian website Index.hr, heavyweight Alistair Overeem disclosed his rather odd choice for a new diet (though perhaps it explains why he’s bulked up significantly in recent months):
“I changed my diet, I changed my coach and when I really think about it – I changed everything. From my girlfriend to my training and diet. Before I ate a lot of vegetables that are healthy but contained little energy. Now I mainly eat a horse meat, rice and protein shakes. I got rid of my old coach who was in charge of my fight strategies. It simply wasn’t working. I just started to think about what do I had to do to become a better fighter.”
Better or worse than drinking your own urine? Debate it in the comments.
