Joe Rogan recently spoke out against Liver King’s natural status.
Joe Rogan covers many areas on his podcast with many different guests. This ranges from politics to life hacks to different topics in the world of fitness. Recently, the conversation between Rogan and a guest got on the topic of Brian Johnson, better known as Liver King.
Rogan has been involved in fitness and fighting for years now. He is not a competitor himself but carries a lot of knowledge on the subject. This includes being a big-time carnivore himself, which we have seen as he has tackled the carnivore diet on two separate occasions.
On a recent episode of his podcast, Rogan weighed in on Liver King’s physique and believes that he is not natural despite his claims.
“NO THAT’S A GIMMICK, THAT GUY. HE’S GOT AN ASS FILLED WITH STEROIDS IS WHAT HE GOTS. THAT’S NOT A NATURAL BODY. THAT GUY IS SHOOTING ALL KINDS OF SHIT INTO HIS SYSTEM TO ACHIEVE THAT KIND OF PHYSIQUE,” JOE ROGAN SAID.
Liver King is known for his unorthodox diet plan eating raw meats. He has taken on a lifestyle of living off the land and believes that he gains nutrients in many different ways of raw meat and living off the land.
This is another topic that Rogan has disagreed with. He has discussed the topic with many experts that have appeared on his show and they do not believe there is any benefit to raw meat.
“LOOK, I DON’T EVEN KNOW IF THERE’S A BENEFIT IN EATING RAW MEAT. FROM WHAT I’VE UNDERSTOOD, TALKING TO EXPERTS, THERE’S ACTUALLY A LOT GAINED FROM COOKING BECAUSE THERE’S MORE, BECAUSE THE PROTEIN BECOMES MORE BIOAVAILABLE.
EATING RAW MEAT LIKE THAT, YOU’RE NOT GETTING AS MUCH OF THE ACTUAL NUTRIENTS FROM IT. MAYBE YOU’RE GETTING SOME ADDITIONAL FACTORS FROM THE FACT THAT YOU’RE GETTING LIKE A RARE PIECE OF MEAT WITH BLOOD AND STUFF LIKE THAT. MAYBE THERE’S OTHER THINGS. MAYBE YOU’RE GETTING TOO MUCH PROTEIN IF YOU’RE EATING A GIANT STEAK AND IT’S COOKED WELL.”
Joe Rogan specifically referenced Derek from More Plates More Dates. He is a YouTube sensation who has studied this exact diet plan. Rogan claims that Derek did not find a benefit from Liver King eating “liver and testicles and drinking blood.”
The physique of Liver King is undeniable and remains fully intact. This is the reason that it has been brought into question and there are many that do not believe he could have built that physique naturally. Joe Rogan seems to be on that list.
