Lose Weight & Eat What You Want: World’s Fittest Man Proves It’s Possible

In case you needed another excuse...

You open your lunchbox and the smell of tuna hits you like a wet slap. Eugh. Fish salad. Again. Second only to “dry chicken breast” in the dieter’s go-to meal prep rotation, this ‘lunch’ may be one of the most popular for the health-conscious members of society in 2020.

But what if you were wrong? What if you were being overly finicky over your food? While there’s no resounding answer, the ripped body of the world’s fittest man, and his surprisingly attractive diet, suggests you shouldn’t feel guilty for trading your salad for a juicy toasted sandwich every once in a while.

Enter: Mat Fraser, a US athlete who earned the moniker “fittest man on earth” at the 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 CrossFit games, is an absolute unit and doesn’t fuss over lettuce leaves.

As News.com.au reported this morning, the 30-year-old eats “anything from steak and potatoes to enchiladas and tacos – and usually four to five meals per day.”

“Fraser kicks off his day at about 7.30 am with a cup of coffee and a classic three-part breakfast of bacon, eggs and oatmeal. He’s then off to the gym at 9.30 am for four hours where you will find him doing anything between conditioning, weightlifting and metabolic conditioning.”

He then heads home for lunch, usually a sandwich, before heading back to the gym for another three-hour sweat sesh.

He also takes moments out of his day to make you jealous about what he’s eating, whether it be Maple Syrup laden (healthy style) pancakes…

… or a cheeky Cappucino.

While Mathew overall has a rather healthy diet, the point is, one needn’t castigate themselves for adding some indulgences to their routine, a la Mathew.

While we can’t guarantee it will lead to better results than the CrossFit champ in the gym, it might provide you with extra fuel reserves, and a happier Sunday.
