Former powerlifter and bodybuilder C.T Fletcher has promoted the plant-based lifestyle to his 2.1 million Instagram followers.

The three-time World Bench Press Champion, and three-time World Strict Curl Champion, claims he used to eat ‘four big macs and four strawberry shakes’ every day for more than 20 years. He has now ditched animal products

Fletcher has posted several photos and videos of his plant-based meals, including vegan protein shakes, banana and peanut butter snacks, and meatless burgers.

‘I’m trying to be healthy’

“Seems like right around midnight some s**t hit my ass and I just turn into a ‘snack hound’… Especially since we [have] been in lockdown,” Fletcher wrote on Instagram.

“I used to eat anything I could get my fat f***ing fingers on. But I’m plant-based now and I’m trying to be healthy as I possibly can these days.”

‘No meat for me’

In another post, the athlete is pictured cooking meat-free patties from Trifecta – a vegan meal delivery service in the U.S.

He wrote: “I still eat four burgers for lunch, but these days the burgers are made from pea and rice protein and wrapped in lettuce. No meat for me.”
