Basketball Great LeBron James Ditches Sugar, Quickie Carbs & Dairy for 67 Days

LeBron James diet

Hurrah to a leaner LeBron James, who’s now drawing attention to a cleaner way of eating, thanks to his strict, off-season diet.

His slimmer physique came about because he ate “no sugars, no dairy, no carbs.” (Well, that’s not exactly true, because vegetables contain carbs and fruits contain natural sugars.)

“All I ate was meat, fish, veggies and fruit. That’s it. For 67 straight days,” James told reporters at the unveiling of his new LeBron 12 sneaker.

The athlete’s meals — photos of which he’s posted on Instagram — look quite tasty.

For one lunch, as he shared, he ate arugula salad with chicken, strawberries, mango, cashews and olive oil or lemon oil vinaigrette dressing.

James stuck to his diet while vacationing in Greece, and he even turned down a personalized cake offered to him, because it contained sugar.

The 6-foot-8-inch Cleveland Cavaliers forward, who is entering his 12th NBA season, says he lost weight to be in top shape for training camp and to test his “mental fortitude.”

While we don’t know exactly how much weight James lost, it’s probably between 10 to 20 pounds.

James was quite disciplined and determined even though, as he joked, “I had a cookie monster chasing me a few times in my dreams.”
