A McGregor’s diet is perhaps the most important aspect of keeping him in shape. Fighting is a way of life—not a way to live for just six weeks during a fight camp, or three months to get shredded for the summer.
McGregor certainly lives his life the right way. “I’m always eating good food,” he says. “Depending how far out I am from a fight, I might cut out a few things. You wouldn’t catch me eating too much in terms of take-out. I love water and coconut water, but I never drink energy drinks—ever! I just eat good, quality meat and keep hydrated.”
Fighter starts his day with a bottle of water. And then eats a banana or drink a cup of Americano. “I just try and eat clean. I don’t eat takeaways. I don’t eat none of that shit. I just try to eat clean.”
Based is diet good-quality meats, good-quality greens, good-quality carbohydrates like sweet potato and butternut squash, and that is it.
What Conor McGregor eats:
- Fruits (banana, etc.)

McGregor’s coach Kavanagh posted this photo and said: “That’s what a fridge looks like for a bunch of smart primates. Salmon, chicken, steak, fruit and veg. That’s it.”
