Sometimes one setback can inspire individuals to completely change the course of their lives. One such incident in the sporting arena has been the talk of the town lately. And it is concerning the UFC President Dana White. While it is being reported that he had been told by the medical experts that he has only 10 more years left to live, he decided to take it upon himself to follow everything that was told him and the result is a fitter Dana White, the one with a ripped physique who has lost 30 lbs.
In a recent interview on a podcast, White revealed how he had connected with Gary Brecka of 10X Health Systems who has devised a new mechanism of predicting one's date of death after an assessment of blood and DNA samples. When White got tested, he was told that he only has a decade more to live. However, he was offered a choice of abiding by everything that he was told for the next 10 weeks to prolong his life.
"This guy can take your blood and your DNA and tell you when you’re going to die, and they’re right within a month," White said on the Action Junkeez podcast.
“I connect with this guy, and they come in and they do my blood work and they scrape the insides of your cheeks to do your DNA. And the following Wednesday is when my results are supposed to be back," he added.
"So, he calls me [and says] I’m going to come out personally and walk you through your blood work. He ends up coming out, he sits down for three and a half hours and goes through my blood work," he continued.
"I’m all f****ed up. Everything that can be bad can be possibly bad. He gave me 10.4 years to live," he stated.
"This was 16 weeks ago and he said to me ‘If you don’t change these things, this is your life expectancy.’ He told me everything that was wrong with me, s*** I hadn’t even told my wife," the 53-year-old said.
"And he says, ‘If you do everything I tell you to do for the next ten weeks it will change your life.’ I did everything he said to the letter, and I lost 30lbs."
“Everything is gone in ten f***ing weeks, I have been working with doctors for ten years and they haven’t been able to do anything. This guy is incredible and he can literally change your life."
“I feel like I’m 35 years old again. Swear to god, I feel like I’m 35 again.”
Not only this, the UFC President even took to social media to share a glimpse of the physical transformation that he underwent.
