Upon being asked what should one eat to stay healthy, Van Damme quoted Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him)’s example to explain what a person should eat. He also warned that artificial body supplements are dangerous for health.
“The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) was very smart, he knew what’s good for the future, about the body. So, look at that, don’t ask me and believe me, you have everything that you need.” Van Damme said while talking to a Saudi owned broadcasting network MBC.
Previously, many notable martial artists such as Mohammad Ali and Mike Tyson have also praised Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)’s eating habits, pointing out that the Prophet (PBUP) was very knowledgeable about how to stay fit.
