Professional bodybuilder and Australian Ninja Warrior competitor Jacob Hohua has praised a plant-based diet for ‘changing his life’ – after he ditched animal products three and a half years ago.” According to the Ninja, “Becoming plant-based has definitely changed my life. I feel like I have more energy; I feel more in tune with myself and I just feel overall happier.”
This Ninja can really pack it away. “I can eat anywhere from five to seven thousand calories a day. [I eat] lots of fruit, lots of veggies, beans, lentils, quinoa, rice, and pasta.” The 25-year-old strongman, whose nickname is the plant-based gorilla, is this year’s heaviest contestant- weighing 240 pounds.
