I was like, man, I want to have a chef to help me out just by putting better food into my body,” the NFL WR stated.

Inside Justin Jefferson’s Balanced Diet

Jefferson’s breakfast is generally protein-packed, with eggs, bacon, and toast, to maintain his weight. It was necessary for him, since his college days owing to his intense training schedules. While his chef handles his meals, he always enjoys the meals cooked by his mother. His lunch includes a protein-rich menu, with chicken on the grill, salmon, beans, and rice.

Jefferson’s carbohydrate intake typically includes whole grains like quinoa and brown rice. Besides solid foods, he also makes sure to remain well-hydrated with plenty of water and nutritious fluids, and avoids sugary drinks and too much of caffeine.

But, just like he sticks to the healthy eating regime religiously, he also loves his guilty pleasures equally. “While I try to stick to a solid regimen during the season and off-season to keep me healthy and productive, there’s always some room for a bit of indulgence and guilty pleasures. I like cookies and ice cream. For ice cream, I’ll take a nice vanilla caramel mix. For cookies… give me some white chocolate macadamia cookies. Those are a hit,” he adds. Indeed, balance is a must, and Jefferson is maintaining the food equilibrium very well.
