Kobe Beef or Kobe Vegetables
Kobe Bryant is probably one of the most popular athletes in professional sports. His image is a powerful one. In the past he used to use it to hock fast food, but, it seems his diet has hit an upswing—veggies! Michael Lee of The Washington Post reports:
Bryant has instead placed all of his energy into representing his country, and said he probably pushed his body hardest in preparation for this event. He lost about 19 pounds before the minicamp in July, and has stayed away from pepperoni pizza and fast food so long that he said he "can't remember the last time" he had some. His diet has mostly been limited to fish and vegetables.Well, it’s a start! Guys like Tank Johnson, Bernard Berrian, and Richard Hamilton should take a page out of Kobe’s book. These guys are eating diets lacking in nutrients and high in junk. Not exactly the blue print to health. Dr. Fuhrman explains:
"You start knocking on 30, the reality sets in a little bit. Your metabolism isn't what it used to be," said Bryant, who turns 29 on Thursday. "It's a part of trying to figure out how do you stay in tip-top condition or stay ready to play. If that means not eating fast food all the time, that's what you've got to do."
If you have been living in a cave for the last five years and haven't heard, a diet is considered healthy only if it gets the majority of its calories from natural plant foods, such as fresh fruits, vegetables, beans, avocado, raw nuts, seeds and other nutrient-rich foods. When one bases their diet from a combination of animal products and processed foods a deficiency of plant-derived phytochemicals leads you down the road to cancer later in life.
