Hi everyone! I want to share with you the feature interview that was posted on the Life of a Fighter website December 6, 2013. In it I discuss what it means to be a Sexy Fit Vegan™ and address how the topic relates to the mixed martial arts community.
As wonderful a concept as a vegan diet may be, is it enough subsistence for our readers and fighters? Magers not only says yes, but declares it’s the true wellness lifestyle. “An MMA fighter should go vegan for the same reason any athlete, or any other person should go vegan,” she says, “Whole plant food is quality fuel for our bodies. It is a choice that can result in improved performance and physical health. As a bonus, going vegan means living conscientiously, compassionately, and showing you care about life as well as the environment our descendants will inherit. In our modern day society, a vegan lifestyle is simply the healthiest, most compassionate, and ecologically sound way to live.”
As for advice for the MMA community Magers says, ” The MMA community and vegan communities have one thing in common; they are both highly stereotyped groups. It’s time to break the mold! Vegans can be sexy, strong, and athletic. MMA fighters can be conscientious, intelligent, and compassionate. Vegans can be MMA athletes and MMA athletes can be vegans. I am both. More and more people are joining me everyday. It’s a win-win-win!”
