Like most people, UFC Fighter Mark Munoz turned to food for comfort when he was going through difficult times in his life.
Last summer, Munoz was knocked out by Chris Weidman, he also had a foot injury in which he needed to recover, which prevented him to keep in shape.
Munoz said on his website: “Battled through injury, self-doubt, and depression. I turned to food for comfort and what I found was more heartache. A never-ending cycle of “eating because I was sad and because I was eating. I had to find peace and comfort in my faith in God. He shaped my life.”
And Munoz’s faith definitely helped him to bounce back. Starting from January of this year to late June, he went from 261 lbs. to 199 lbs, which is not far from his fighting weight of 185 lbs.
What a great turnaround for Munoz!
