UFC President Dana White appeared in an interview with Brett Okamoto of ESPN MMA. In an interesting chat, White talked about his health struggles and how he tackled those problems. The 53-year-old underwent a body transformation that saw him develop a lean physique; after the doctors gave him a grim prediction about his health issues.

Dana White has had a history of health issues that included problems with mobility and illnesses like sleep apnea. He also had problems with blood sugar, from being a borderline diabetic to pre-diabetic while he was filming his ‘F**k it Friday’ series. For ten years, Dana White’s doctors couldn’t provide him with a proper remedy concerning his health problems. But the UFC President was determined to get rid of those issues and subsequently restricted himself to a ketogenic diet.

Dana White and the 10x Health System

Dana White believes that his restrictive ketogenic diet has completely changed his life. He had earlier revealed that his keto diet has enough alternatives to sugar and carbohydrates for him to feel comfortable with it. Dana White revealed that a doctor from Los Angeles wanted to cut his tonsils out and widen his throat. But human biologist Grey Brecka helped the 53-year-old MMA promoter resolve his issues within ten weeks with the help of the 10x Health System.

“Doctors for ten years couldn’t tell me what was wrong, couldn’t fix things, little things that were wrong with me; including simple stuff that all men go through- snoring and sleep apnea. Go do a sleep study and I guarantee you they’re going to put you on a CPAP Machine,” said White.
