LeBron James is playing his 20th season in the NBA. Even though he seems to be slowing down (slightly), the level at which LeBron has played his entire career is something we’ve never seen before in the NBA.
LeBron has been able to maintain his level of dominance for so long for the reasons. The first is his training regimen. It has been reported that LeBron spends $1.5 million every year on his body, which includes his diet.
You have to be extremely wealthy to be able to afford a $1.5 million diet of your body every year. It’s something LeBron has no problem doing, having officially achieved billionaire status last June.
To be able to perform at a high level in any physical activity requires a solid training routine, but that’s not all. You also need a strict and healthy diet.
LeBron James has always followed a strict diet, consuming only foods that can help him reach his peak. So what is LeBron’s diet?
LeBron James’ strict diet
LeBron James is not like other basketball players who occasionally indulge in a fast food burger because it will only set back his physical gifts. In fact, LeBron admitted he ended his partnership with famed fast-food chain McDonald’s because it “didn’t share some of the same core values.”
LeBron takes nothing for granted when it comes to his diet. Eating like a king means knowing what to put in your body to maximize its potential.
In an article published on menshealth.com in November 2021, LeBron went deeper into his diet.
“I had no sugars, no dairy, I had no carbs. I only ate meat, fish, vegetables and fruits. That’s it. For 67 straight days. Before competition for me would be like chicken breast and maybe a little pasta. The carbs help because you get out and play a lot of minutes,” LeBron said. “But a salad and some veggies will be just fine for me. And before the game, maybe I’ll grab a protein shake and some fruit, and I’ll be good to go.
“So the sugars I cut a little bit, but the carbs I increased a little bit. Because you’re losing so many calories, you’re burning so many calories, burning all your energy through these games. So , I go a little heavy on the carbs because it gives you energy.It worked for me.
As you can tell from LeBron’s own words, everything he consumes has a purpose. This goes against the way most people eat, which is to enjoy the taste of food.
That’s the difference between LeBron James and us normal people; we are not 4x NBA champions. So what does a normal day look like during the NBA season for LeBron, as far as meal prepping goes? That’s what we’ll dive into next.

LeBron James is an incredible athlete who has set an example for all young NBA players and all the fans who watch him play. If you want to achieve your goals, never give up and never give in.

Most people will struggle to stay on such a demanding plan. But then again, most of us aren’t LeBron James.
