College football star Keon Coleman has what fans called “the diet of a winner.” One of the things that athletes care about the most is their diet and fitness because they primarily affect performance. But not everyone follows the same healthy green diet pattern, especially not the Florida State Seminoles wide receiver whose eating habits can raise eyebrows. 

There is one particular NFL player who is known for a similar diet as Keon Coleman, and he’s none other than retired Cincinnati Bengals WR Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson. Fans are calling out the similarities in the diet of these two exceptional players whose unconventional diets do not hamper their performance on the field. In fact, Keon Coleman is already leaving a legacy since joining the Seminoles after his two seasons with the Michigan State Spartans.

For most athletes, Keon Coleman’s McDonald’s diet may be nothing short of strange and unconventional. Fans posted on Twitter a video of Keon Coleman listing down what he eats after their 4 O’clock game. They drew the similarity of the Florida State WR to Chad Johnson with a caption that reads, “This man Keon Coleman doing the Ochocinco diet & cooking folks on Saturdays.

Ocho, who is a hearty eater himself and who hypes other players to eat like him, is going to be very proud of this 20-year-old receiver. Keon Coleman asserts that he eats “two hot and spicy with cheese” burgers with “extra mayomedium fries, Oreo McFlurry, and a 10-piece nugget.” That’s a lot of McDonald’s to take in, especially if you’re an athlete looking to stay on the fitter side. 

In 2021, Ocho revealed what he eats on game days on the I AM Athlete podcast. From his breakfast’s McDonald’s hotcakes with sausage to dinner’s three legs of fried chicken and a slice of chocolate cake, Chad Johnson left so many people dumbfounded. Surprisingly, Keon Coleman’s diet does not hinder his fitness or performance in the field.
