In MMA, we have seen surgeries, rehabs, and sports psychologists save careers, but a carnivore diet is something pretty unique.

Alejandra Lara returns to action for the first time in 2022 and will be doing so on a new diet that saved her from retirement. A carnivore diet is a restrictive diet that only includes meat, fish, and other animal foods like eggs. The diet gained a lot of popularity when podcaster and UFC fan-favorite Joe Rogan spoke about it on his podcast several times.

All meat diet

In a recent interview with MMA Junkie, Lara explained how the all-meat diet saved her career.

“I have a situation with my spine that has to do with genetics and also because I’ve put it through a lot of impact and extreme things I’ve done,” Lara explained.

“Right now, I’m eating meat. I have a sponsor that promotes conscious consumption. It promotes proper raising from animal products. So with their help, I began to do a carnivore diet plan. I have a cyst that pressures my sciatic nerve, so that’s why I couldn’t be standing, laying down, I couldn’t sleep. It was truly driving me crazy. I thought, ‘Am I going to have to retire?.’

“I’m taking supplements, doing therapy, but I mainly attribute the change to, is the diet. In the second week, the pain was gone. I was able to remember and experience life without discomfort. I had forgotten about that. I feel like that’s the biggest victory I’ve had so far.

“I’m training like I haven’t before. I’ve also seen a lot of changes in my body. It’s been difficult. I went from being vegan to even eating raw meat like raw liver. But it’s been a long time since I’ve eaten for pleasure. I mainly eat for nutrition and what makes me feel good now.” h/t MMA Junkie

Lara is currently on the second two-fight skid of her career; however, the last time she was on a losing streak, she rebounded by winning two straight. ‘Azul’ looks to do that at Bellator 282 this Friday, when she faces Ilara Joanne.
