Joe Rogan and Derek of MPMD Talk Dana White’s ‘Superhuman Protocol, Supplement Stacks
In the past, Joe Rogan and Derek have discussed the hot topic of whether big names were ‘natty or not’ including Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and bodybuilder Mike O’Hearn. As of late, the two dived into Dana White’s epic body transformation thanks to Human Biologist Gary Brecka, who previously revealed that White only had approximately 10 years left to live.
“I also ordered one of his light beds — which Dana White’s face looks like he’s 10 years younger. There’s a thing that happened to him that happens to everyone when you lose body fat.I noticed this when I got on the carnivore diet. Your cheeks get sorta sucked in and you kind of look like shit because you don’t have face fat anymore which kind of fills your face out more,” Rogan states.
“So your face starts getting kind of sunken in. His face did that at first and then it plumped up again. I’m like what’s going on with that. He’s like it’s the red light bed.
Red light bed increases collagen in your skin and you use it every day. He’s got a routine that Gary Brecka does.What is it called, the super human protocol or something.”
“Yeah, he says he’s going to be on that forever [keto diet]. He’s like dude I feel so good I have so much energy and so much mental clarity, he’s like I’m staying keto forever.”
“Well, for supplementation, I recently had Gary Brecka on the podcast. I started taking all the different methylated vitamins and things that he recommends. I just started doing it. I can’t tell. I feel great but I can’t tell if there’s been an improvement.”
Rogan, Derek MPMD Talk Benefits of Carnivore ‘Animal-Based’ Diets
As for his diet, Rogan underlined that he is fully committed to a carnivore animal-based diet, consisting of game meat, bacon, eggs, and other healthy fats such as avocados.
“The majority of my diet is all just meat and eggs and game meat and bacon and it’s all just healthy fat. I’ll still eat avocados and avocado oil and I’ll occasionally have a piece of fruit but the vast majority of my diet is just animal-based,” explains Joe Rogan.
“Sometimes I’ll still do that, I’ll have a banana before I workout, but it’s not every day, it’s once a week [fruit]. Or I’ll have berries and yogurt, but most of my food is animal-based. When I do that I have a 100% recognition that there’s an extra gear that I have mentally.
Having led a busy life for decades now, Rogan is always looking to stay ahead of the game with training and recovery practices.
“I’m doing pretty well with this weight. Let’s ramp this weight up a little bit, let’s change the reps, let’s add in these, let’s add in one or two extra kettlebell movements to this routine, you know, so I’m working out for an hour and a half or so.”
“When that is over I do the sauna for 20-25 minutes and then I eat,” adds Rogan. “Typically here [at podcast studio] or when I’m doing these comedian BootCamp things.”
“That’s my favorite. Yeah reverse treadmill walking is a great too,” said Rogan.
A long-time firm believer of the carnivore diet, Rogan plans to challenge his friends to an animal-based nutrition plan in January.
“With what I’m doing with these guys, in January, we’re going to do a carnivore diet only. So, January is apparently world carnivore month, that’s when I first started trying it. It’s a thing where if you know other people are doing it and you’re being held accountable and you declare that you’re doing it, hop on and try it.”
“I tell these guys for the whole month of January I want you to eat nothing but meat and eggs. Just nothing but meat, eggs, fish, fats, get all your healthy fats in meats and eggs.”
This challenge suggested by Rogan would involve cutting out all sugar, bread, pasta, and rice. He emphasized that satiety levels are different when someone becomes accustomed to consuming meat.
“You can have some avocado, I want you to eat bacon but I want you to just completely cut out all sugar, all bread, all pasta, all rice, all bullshit. And let’s see how you feel at the end of the month, let’s see how you commit to it. That’s where they’re going to see radical body change.”
“Your satiety level from just eating meat is so different. It’s crazy people that have a problem overeating.”
This isn’t the first time the public has heard about Dana White’s epic body transformation. The UFC CEO has been open with fans about his journey to a healthier life. He took part in an 86-hour water-only fast recently and praised the practice for helping him maintain a shredded physique. Given his busy schedule, fans were blown away by White’s progress.
With other influencers like Liver King opting for an all-meat diet, it’s clear that carnivore diets are gaining popularity. As for Rogan, he couldn’t be more thrilled to begin his animal-based food challenge with his friends next month.
