I think that's what kept either of the Raelerts from ever reaching their full potential. I remember Macca once saying that he went for a 20-mile run with them and when they got home they each chopped up a head of lettuce, doused it in vinegar, and that was their recovery meal. Meanwhile Macca was having a sandwich, cake and beer.
And Starky is not 6'4" although he'll tell you he is. Watching him eat after a big workout is a sight to behold. I just got off the phone with him. He informed me that he plans to burn Kona to the ground after he wins, so maybe up your home insurance if you're a local.
