Then there’s Los Angeles Clippers’ guard and former Duke star J.J. Redick. In an interview with GQ, Redick describes how getting more serious about basketball as a profession also meant getting more serious about his diet. Redick has signed on as a spokesman for Beyond Meat, a company that makes all your favorite carnivorous snacks with vegetables instead of beef or chicken, and he can’t get enough of the veggie-packed burgers and nuggets.
Redick generally focuses on staying healthy as a whole over focusing on any one diet trend. Redick hasn’t made the full leap into vegetarianism quite yet, and explains he’ll still eat red meat on occasion. He tells GQ,
Sure, he can’t eat exactly how he’d like during the NBA season, given that he’s traveling to different cities and living out of hotels. But when he’s home, Redick says he’s liable to eat a whole package of fake chicken nuggets in one sitting. Don’t go too crazy, J.J., that’s a lot of fiber.
