Many people know Michael Symon as the meat guy on Food Network. If you've ever heard him talk about meat, you would never think he even eats vegetables. So when FN Dish caught up with the host of Burgers, Brew & 'Que and asked him to offer up some surprising facts about himself, Michael was a little skeptical, saying, "I feel like I've been on TV so long that they know everything." However, even we were surprised to hear some of the facts he revealed: Let's just say even the meat guy gets in his greens.

Get to know Michael Symon better and discover some aspects about his life that might surprise you.

1. I wrestled 105 pounds in high school.

2. I'm an avid gardener, both edible and non-, like I always plant an enormous cutting bed for Liz that I take care of.

3. Although most of my life I'm surrounded by tons of people, nothing really makes me happier than being by myself, putzing around in the yard.

4. My stepson Kyle is now 28 years old.

5. I'm a vegetarian three days a week … . It's not necessarily by choice; it's just reality.

6. I love green juice, which is weird, I think, seeing how much I love all the fattier things in life. I find green juice incredibly delicious. I like kale, celery, ginger, with just the smallest bit of apple.

7. I eat a lot of Greek yogurt.
