Conor McGregor Diet (Practical Guide to Breakthrough Training Plateaus)

Conor is apparently, a fan of the Sirt Food Diet.

This diet is high in sirtuin activators, which help prevent diseases related to age and stress (study here).

The diet is best know however, for allowing both dark chocolate and red wine.

The diet appears to require a foundation of the following foods:

  • Green Tea
  • Apples
  • Oranges
  • Grapefruit
  • Lemons
  • Turmeric (an orange indian spice)
  • Kale & Spinach
  • Other Green leafy vegetables
  • Berries
  • Capers (small flower buds of the Capparis shrub)
  • Red wine
  • Dark chocolate (that is at least 85 per cent cocoa)



More information can be found in the video below:




Conor has also said that he doesn’t eat a huge amount of carbs, presumably relying on a high amount of protein & healthy fats to meet his energy demands.
