Dana White is in some incredible shape.
Recently, UFC President Dana White underwent an 86-hour water fast that got him absolutely shredded. White detailed the fast in an Instagram post and shared some impressive progress pics and transformation.
Let’s face it, everyone wants to get in tip-top shape at least once in their life. While looking like a superhero isn’t everyone’s ultimate goal, fat loss is beneficial to longevity. While we all need a certain amount of body fat to maintain healthy hormone ranges, having too much on your frame can be a detriment to your health. It’s a fact that Dana White learned the hard way.
Just a few years ago Dana White was one of many Americans who were overweight. He carried a considerable amount of fat on his frame and just wasn’t his best self. But after receiving a cryptic diagnosis from his doctor, White decided to turn his life around and get into the best shape of his life.

After embracing a healthy lifestyle and shedding a great deal of weight, Dana White continues to seek out different ways to improve his well-being. His latest experiment on his body was a water fast that White has been praising as a game changer.
Bodybuilders and fighters are no strangers to cutting weight. It’s a part of the job. For bodybuilders, it’s to get as shredded as possible while still retaining full musculature. For fighters, it’s to drop as much weight as possible while maintaining their muscle. So when Dana White revealed his epic transformation, you can be sure a few individuals in both camps were more than intrigued by how he dropped the water weight.
The answer? An 86-hour water fast.
“I just got done fasting for 86 hours,” said Dana White in a recent Instagram post. “I feel like a superhero. I feel incredible. And I want to tell you how I did it. I love sharing this kind of stuff with you. So when I left the event on Saturday night, I started fasting, and here’s a picture of me Saturday night when I left. I just got done this morning. So Saturday to Wednesday and here are the pictures of me this morning.
“So I don’t know if you’ve seen this online, but it’s called a seven-day water fast. Doctors have done studies on this and this thing is legit, it gives you over a 70% chance of not getting cancer, Alzheimer’s, and other nasty diseases. Basically, you drink water for 72 hours. Gary likes that better than 76, he says that’s safer.”
Dana White went into detail as to how to perform this fast as well as an impressive before and after picture.

“I’m going to walk you through what the protocol is in this video. So the first 24 hours all you drink is water. But you can put electrolytes in your water.
“The first 24 hours you drink water and you can use that in your water. Then, the next day this is the cleanest broth that you can buy (Kettle and Fire). This thing only has 45 calories, less than one gram of carbs, and it has like 13 grams of protein. So all it really has is protein and 45 calories.
“Bone broth, twice a day for the next two days.”
Dana White got in some pretty great condition. Perhaps it’s something that everyone should give a shot.
