(LeBron Raymone James)

Three NBA Championships (2012, 2013, 2016) and two Olympic Gold Medals (2008, 2012).
LeBron James is nicknamed King James for a reason. The 31-year-old NBA superstar is a three-time NBA champion, and has had what is arguably the most impressive comeback in league history.
Whether in the off-season or the middle of a grueling NBA schedule,
LeBron James always eats a healthy diet. Before competing against the league’s best players, James may have a chicken breast or some pasta.
James says the carbs in the pasta help because he needs the energy to play on the court. The 12-time NBA All-Star has averaged 27.2 points and 39 minutes per game throughout his 13-year professional basketball career.
LeBron James also eats lots of vegetables, salads, and even protein shakes with some fruit before games. But he saves the pizza, pies, sandwiches, and french fries for post-game festivities.
The two-time Olympic gold medalist exercises about five days a week in the off-season, and seven days a week during the basketball season.
LeBron James workout involves a mix of low-level reps that activate his muscles, like push-ups and pull-ups. He often throws in a few classes on top of his traditional gym workout.
Some of his favorite classes include spinning, VersaClimber, and Pilates. Cardio exercises help prepare James’s stamina and fitness levels for intense basketball games.
