In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with James Wilks, a mixed martial artist best known for winning Season 9 of The Ultimate Fighter and one of the producers of The Game Changers. He also serves as a combative trainer for government agencies including the US Marshals, US Marines, US Army Rangers, and US Navy SEALs.
James is an intense, but friendly guy and is very knowledgeable in plant-based eating for athletes. We talked about the eating cultures and the need to focus more on nutrition and of course, we cover the topic of protein. You’ll be interested to hear what he has to say about Roman Gladiators as well. As we get into talking about The Game Changers we talk about the amazing cast, why there are more males than females and the overall message for the movie. Expect to hear about some of the surprises you’ll see if you go to The Game Changers live September 16 in theaters and some of the online hype afterward.
Please share with anyone who is into sports, loves being plant-based or is still on the fence!
