Irish weightlifter and YouTuber Clarence Kennedy is ‘insanely strong’, according to industry news outlet barbend.com – in fact, he’s one of the strongest vegans in the world.

He recently shared details of his diet with the outlet.

Vegan

According to an article published by Barbend: “There are a couple of reasons why this is notable. First, Kennedy is insanely strong — his best lifts are a 185kg snatch and a 220kg clean & jerk at about 100kg bodyweight.

“The second reason is that he’s a vegan. (He made those lifts both before and after his transition to veganism in 2016.) 

“And let’s be honest, vegans are often associated with protein deficiency, anemia, and skinniness.”

Diet

According to Barbend: “On average, the man eats about 4,000 calories per day and 150 grams of protein.”

While his afternoon eating consists mainly of ‘cheat’ foods, Kennedy shares details about his breakfast, which contains ‘1458 calories, 50 grams of protein, 220 grams of carbs, and 42 grams of fat’.

He eats a bowl of fruit, including apples, grapes and cherries, a bowl of oatmeal, two cups of chocolate soy milk and four tablespoons of peanut butter.

Kennedy reportedly does not include protein powder in his diet.
