He cooks for himself, with mostly organic ingredients, nothing fried, nothing processed. Staples include egg whites, fish and vegetables. He eats red meat only when in training, and then only buffalo or venison. In fact, at his first meeting with Richard Schaefer, who promotes Hopkins as the chief executive of Golden Boy Promotions, Hopkins ordered shrimp scampi but insisted the chef forgo wine in preparation.

Just out of interest why would he choose red meat over white during training?

I think he meant the only time he eats red meat is during training and that he doesnt eat them outside of training camp

I saw Hopkins frying what appeared to be onions and other vegetables on an advert for this documentary called "discipline".

Buffalo is actually very similar to beef, it's just much leaner (less fatty) and thus lower in calories.

Luckily, there is a restaurant that is conveniently located near my gym that serves all types of wild game. From Buffalo to Kangaroo. I've never eaten Kangaroo tho lol.

I really like meat, but at the same time it does sadden me that animals have to be killed for it. I try not to think about it too much.
