411 MMA Interviews: Rashad Evans
UFC Fighter Rashad Evans recently spoke with 411 Mania’s Jeffrey Harris to discuss his fight, training techniques and how ViSalus has played a role in getting him in shape. Here’s what Rashad had to say:
Jeffrey Harris: What is ViSalus and how much did it help in camp preparing for your fight?
Rashad Evans: What it does to help me out more than anything, one of the hardest things in world for me to do is to make sure that I’m eating all the time. And its really hard for me to eat five or six meals a day. So when I was using shakes as something for in between, and it would do more than enough to make sure that I wasn’t losing too much muscle and getting just leaner at the same time. It was the perfect meal in between shakes. And right now, I’m using it more now because I have to cut down on how much food I’m going to take in, and I need to be able to function and not look like a zombie. So doing the shakes right now is saving me.
Jeffrey Harris: So is this like a powder supplement like whey protein?
Rashad Evans: Yeah, that’s exactly what it is. But they have energy drinks, they have the energy go shots, and stuff like that, that gets you going. They have a lot of snacks and stuff that comes along with it. But the main staple product is the protein. And when I first started taking it, I was like, “I don’t know man. I don’t know about this.” It just seemed kind of gimmicky for a while. But then I started really trying it – it kind of surprised me how well it worked and how much I started to like it and how much I started to depend on it to help me.
