“Really, I would just change my diet and just do cardio,” Tyson told rapper LL Cool J on SiriusXM’s “Rock the Bells Radio”. “The cardio has to start, you have to have your stamina to do the training process. So something to do is do some cardio, I would try to do two hours of cardio a day, I would make sure you have this stuff. You are going to make sure that you are eating the right food.
For years that meant a vegan diet that helped Tyson lose the 100 pounds he had gained since he last fought in the ring in 2006. Tyson told Joe Rogan he Fasted often and would go to extremes when he was a vegan for about five years.
However, as Jones’ exhibition match approached, Tyson made some extreme diet changes to go along with some extreme claims.
“I only eat elk and bison – wild stuff – and I’m starting to feel great,” Tyson said on Rogan’s podcast in September. “I realized that what is good for others – like kale, vegetables and blueberries – is really toxic to me…. Kale will kill me!
The change is an about-face from the former heavyweight king’s previous stance on meat consumption. As recently as 2019, he said he didn’t eat “anything that has a mother and a father.”
“To me, it’s almost like slave food,” Tyson said. “Do what you hate to do but do it like it’s nothing. Get up when you don’t want to get up. This is what it is. It becomes the slave of life. Being a slave to life means being the best person you can be, being the best you can be, and when you are your best you can be is when you no longer exist and no one is speaking from you. This is where you are at your best.
But Tyson doesn’t just rely on diet and exercise to make these changes. He also turned to stem cell therapy, which made him feel like a “different person”.
” Yes. When they took the blood it was red and when it came back it was almost transfluid, ”he said of the alternative treatment. “I could almost see through the blood, then they injected me. And I’ve been weird ever since, got to be balanced now.
Stem cell therapy can be used to treat certain cancers, such as leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma, and other conditions, such as aplastic anemia and sickle cell anemia.
“Six weeks into this and I would be in the best shape I ever dreamed of being,” Tyson said. “In fact, I am going through this process right now. And you know what else I did, I did some stem cell research.
