SAS Recruits Go Plant-Based To Avoid Food Poisoning
New recruits joining the Special Air Service (SAS) are reportedly ditching meat to avoid contracting food poisoning.
Host and chief instructor Ant Middleton, who spent four years with the Special Boats Service (SBS) told the press about his vegetarian diet.
‘Plenty of protein’
The 40-year-old said: “I start the day with fresh vegetable juice, eat plenty of protein, and avoid dairy. I went vegan for a year and have since stuck to a predominantly vegetarian lifestyle.”
Those who join the special unit itself have told bosses they are avoiding meat, The Mirror has confirmed.
Why are recruits ditching meat?
But now, three in ten of those who join the unit are vegetarian or vegan – and do so because they’re less likely to get food poisoning which would interfere with their intense training.
