One would expect a star player like LeBron James to have a strict diet to follow. The way King James performs on court, one would think that he must be going all protein and greens. James is known for his intense preparation and care he takes for his body.

However, as much as the King works out twice as hard as he eats.
Mav Carter says LeBron James spends ~$1,500,000 per year on his body. He uses cryotherapy, hyperbaric chambers, NormaTec leg boots, etc. He also has personal chefs, trainers, etc. He has a strict routine and diet. He invested in his body, so he can still dominate at 33 years old.
