Mortal Kombat actor and model, Ludi Lin, needs to keep fit for his role as the popular hero, Liu Kang. The 33 year-old Chinese-Canadian actor is proficient in the martial arts and works out daily to maintain his fitness and skills.
He also been following a vegan diet for the past 5 years. He’s noticed how nutrition is important for him to stay healthy, although he’s been interested in the idea of a vegan diet since he was a youth. He explained his philosophy in a recent Men’s Health article:
“Eating plant-based and staying away from animal products is something I think is inevitable because it’s good for the Earth, it’s good for my body. I feel good about it because animals are cute and also it’s the only thing that’s sustainable.”
He eats his largest meal of the day after his workout. He is fortunate to have a personal chef who creates full meals including mushrooms, pasta, vegetables, and dessert. High protein snacks are often based on hemp protein powder with peanut butter, sweetened with stevia, though he also likes to have a lot of vegetables, with a particular liking for roasted pumpkin.
