Phil Hellmuth has tweeted his new diet plan and boy is it extreme. The “Poker Brat” is planning to follow the “Eat to Live” protocol which looks like one of the most serious detox food plans possible.
Phil Hellmuth Kicks Off Extreme Diet Plan for 2023
I have entered “Opposite world” diet-wise. Basically, all meat to no meat. No fruit to fruit 4x day. Keto (no carbs) worked short term for me, but long term no good. Onto “Eat To Live”: I’m a vegetarian for 6 weeks. Wifey approved. Worked for @zachahyman for 3.5 yrs #POSITIVITY pic.twitter.com/ZQLrPBKdVa

Daniel Negreanu, who follows a strict vegan lifestyle himself, reckons it looks like a good plan but it will be tough to stick to over the long term.
He tweeted that there will be some particularly unpleasant symptoms until Hellmuth’s body gets used to the new diet structure.
One note I might add is that is gonna be a LOT of fiber and there is such a thing as too much fiber which can lead to bloat and gassiness.
Especially at first when you aren’t used to it.

Of course after pointing this out, all of the poker Twitter comedians came out to play, all seeing who could poke the most fun at Phil Hellmuth.
Are you suggesting this may make Phil Hellmuth full of hot air?
