Diet & Nutrition for Basketball Players & Athletes



First a disclaimer: I am not a nutritionist or food expert (I just play one on YouTube). The world we live in now is full of information; any technical questions on eating/diet/nutrition can be answered through a simple Google search. I am not responsible for your diet or the choices you make when you sit down to eat. If you “don’t know” something, look it up.

Now back to the program.

I started out eating recklessly — like the first video (with the trees in the background).

And, with new information, I have made changes over time, and there will be more:


The change was due to new information. Below are many links I have gathered which discuss the principles I addressed in the video about my eating habits and changes.

This page will be updated with new information as it becomes known to me, so check in from time to time. If you are an nutritionist or have some expertise/knowledge in this field, feel free to contact me or leave a comment that can help inform me and other readers on these topics — the information out there can be quite overwhelming.

What I Eat Daily – Meal Delivery Options (see below for where I order from now)

Where I Order My Meals From

  • FreshMealPlans (Current as of January 2015)
  • CateredFit (February 2014- December 2014)
  • Primal Organic (I stopped ordering form Primal because they were too expensive and didn’t offer as many meal options as CateredFit. But if the Primal plans work for you, I 100% co-sign the greatness of the food!)

Meat Video – This video shows harsh realities of the meat industry and how animals are treated. Granted, the video is made by people who are against the consumption of meat, thusly it is as graphic and horrific as they could possibly make it. But these things do happen, as I have seen similar practices in other documentaries (Food, Inc is one that comes to mind). Most of the US food industry gets their food from factories similar to what you see in this video; if you shop at a local grocery store and buy the “basic”, cheapest meat (or you eat at national chain restaurants at all), this is where your meat is coming from. This is a fact that has been accepted.

WARNING: This video is not for the faint of heart, eyes, emotions, or stomach. View at your own risk (and probably not before you eat bacon or sausage).

Aside from these links, here are a few websites I refer to regularly for food information when it comes to “Clean Eating” (they cover things from recipes to pre- and post-workout food to shopping lists to saving money when changing your eating lifestyle and everything in between)

  • HeandSheEatClean.com Has everything coming from the perspective of a clean-eating couple and the complete lifestyle that comes with it, including simple meal recipes.
  • Whole Foods Healthy Eating We all know about Whole Foods, and they use their website to share lots of info in cooking and preparing all the stuff you can find in their stores.
  • BodyBuilding.com Food and Recipes For serious athletes, BodyBuilding always delivers new useful food ideas, recipes and tips. The forum leverages all the users who are all too happy to share what they know with the community.
  • Meatless Miami For SoFla residents, a perfect site that lists the best places to eat all over town, along with pros and cons of your choices.
