Food gives athletes energy, but one must consume the best kinds so they can keep up that energy and stay focused when its game time. Take a look at some of these athlete’s diets. 

Lebron James

This 4-time NBA championship winner eats everything you put on his plate. James’ diet consists of lean and low-carb foods like lobster, salads, nuts, and some arugula with mango chutney. Before a game, he’s chugging down a protein shake and snacking on some fruit. However, one thing he does try to stay away from in his diet is red meat.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Ronaldo eats a high protein diet, with some wholegrain carbs. The soccer player eats six meals a day that consist of a lot of swordfish, tuna and olives. Some of his favorite meals are chicken salad, and bacalhau à brás- cod, onions, thinly sliced potatoes and eggs. He is not too big on sugary foods and also limits his alcohol consumption to only special occasions.

Novak Djokovic

Of all the diets of these male athletes, Djokovic consumes the least amount of meat. The 20-time Grand Slam winner eats only plant-based and gluten-free foods, while limiting his sugar intake. Djokovic is not 100% vegan, as white fish is still part of his diet. Additionally, he enjoys veggies, fruits and chickpeas. Based on his intake, he seems to love avocados, nut butter and honey.

Bryce Harper

Harper, a Philadelphia Phillies right fielder, is big on eating non-GMO whole foods. His favorite meals are made by his mom, like grilled chicken and spaghetti. For dinner, he eats steak or chicken four out of seven days a week, and fish the other three alongside some carbs and veggies. Although he tries to stay away from dairy, Harper has a sweet tooth for mint chocolate chip ice cream.

Nathan MacKinnon

This recent Stanley Cup champion is sticking to a specific diet that mostly cuts out gluten and dairy products. Of all the diets of these athletes, McKinnon eats the least frequently – he seems to only be eating two proper meals a day, breakfast and dinner. For breakfast, its gluten-free toast, some eggs, and fruit, while dinner consists of a protein-chicken, steak, or salmon- and a green veggie. However, Mackinnon loves to indulge in some chips and guac or ice cream for a cheat meal.
