Lee Priest: “For Now, It’s Working For Him”

A YouTube account called Sam Sulek Clips shared a video of Lee Priest speaking on the up-and-coming bodybuilder.

“For now, that is working for him. If he is eating that and he goes to the doctor to get his blood checked and his blood checks out fine right now but later on, his doctor might say ‘hey, this is creeping up. You may need to clean up your diet a bit,’ I’m sure he will.”

Priest began by discussing his eating habits at a young age compared to that of Sulek right now.

“When I was 21, 20 like that video I put up on Instagram, not long ago when I was 22 years old and I was shredded. At 22, I was still eating half and half milk and this and that but as I got a bit older, I can’t do that anymore so it changes.

You just gotta learn but like I’ve said, Sam’s not out there saying you must do it this way…It’s like, just let the kid be. He’s got like two million followers on YouTube and stuff like that.”
