UFC / MMA / BAMF James “Lightning” Wilks joins the podcast to talk PlantPower nutrition, what it’s like to grapple in the UFC, his experience winning Season 9 of “The Ultimate Fighter”, his thoughts on “low carb” and Paleo-style diets, updates on the development of his documentary on plant-based athletes and how he fuels for performance. Not only is James quite intelligent & extremely articulate, his knowledge and passion when it comes to plant-based nutrition is palpable. I hope you enjoy the interview.
Also, thanks Ed Gutentag– cinematographer extraordinaire — David Kitay and team for dropping by the garage to film today’s episode. At the moment, this is a rather low fi version of the HD film. Given that it is a video in excess of 90 minutes it was the only way to get it up without a 48 hour upload time. However, I’m a luddite when it comes to properly configuring HD video for YouTube, so I’ll try to get this figured out and swap it out for a better resolution version. Apologies for a few audio tweaks in the video – a humming noise for a few minutes in the middle — this is our first attempt at video and we’ll get better as we go.
And if you have a moment, we’d love it if you could toss a quick review up on the iTunes page. It’s most appreciated!
Thanks for the support and hope you enjoy the show!
