If you made your way through UFC President Dana White’s multimillion dollar Las Vegas home—not far from UFC headquarters—passing the outdoor pool where White swims laps against artificial currents, the Pilates room with the floor to ceiling TV for group workouts, the message and facial room complete with an infrared LED bed, the room where White lifts, and the “cold plunge” and the steam room where he recovers…if you made your way through all these rooms, you would eventually find the kitchen, and in the kitchen you would find… sugar. Sugar that includes: Boston cream Klondike bars, frozen Snickers, frozen Kit-Kats, several pints of Ben & Jerry’s, powdered donuts, and Pepperidge Farm everything—cookies, Milanos, etc, etc.
“I’m not one of these guys who eats healthy or whatever,” White says. “The reason I work out is because I love food and I love to eat”
White’s exercise goals are equally succinct: “I’m trying not to get fat, and I’m trying not to get hurt.”
His gym routine is straightforward and based around cardio and weights. (“I’m not trying to break any world records.”) The routine has changed with age. White used to lift much heavier, but he says now, after a shoulder injury and as he approaches his mid 50s, he’s had to re-strategize. “I don’t do any heavy weight now. I do all light weight and make sure every movement is perfect—and I do it for reps.”
In the end, he does it all for food. And, oh boy, you should see Dana White’s meals.
