Here's What LeBron James Is Eating To Lose Weight This Summer

•, Tony Manfred
A key part of LeBron's weight-loss plan is cutting carbohydrates. Miami Heat teammate Ray Allen came into camp in the best shape of anyone on the team last fall, Windhorst reports, and that influenced LeBron this summer.

Some are referring to it as a Paleo diet, although it's unclear if LeBron is calling it that.

Ken Berger of CBS Sports did a long article on the rising popularity of Paleo diets among NBA players in December. Here's his definition of Paleo:

"The Paleolithic diet -- Paleo, for short -- involves eating like our caveman ancestors did: lean meats, wild-caught fish, vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar or processed foods. Its proponents call it the 'anti-inflammatory diet' on the theory that avoiding processed carbs and sugars decreases inflammation in the body -- the kind that causes joint pain and the kind that a growing number of medical authorities believe contributes to heart disease, obesity and diabetes."
