In this month’s episode of Gracie Magazine, there’s an article about Helio Gracie’s distaste for red meat. This prompted Chris, a member of the Mighty 600,000, to contact us here at the to The FightWorks Podcast headquarters:
I just recently read the latest Graciemag, and they had an article in there about whether or not it’s good for your jiu-jitsu to eat red meat. Everyone knows Jake Shields is a vegetarian, and he’s an awesome grappler. I was just wondering how many people out there who do jiu-jitsu are vegetarians or vegans. Perhaps this would be a good poll question?
So what about you? Let us know about your eating habits as a BJJ person in the poll above, and definitely leave a comment here if you have any feelings on how diet affects your jiu-jitsu!
