McGregor certainly lives his life the right way. “I’m always eating good food,” he says. “Depending how far out I am from a fight, I might cut out a few things. You wouldn’t catch me eating too much in terms of take-out. I love water and coconut water, but I never drink energy drinks—ever! I just eat good, quality meat and keep hydrated.”
The MMA champion starts his day with a bottle of water. And then eats a banana or drink a cup of Americano. “ I don’t eat takeaways. I don’t eat none of that shit. I just try to eat clean.”
