Going into 2021 I decided with a Workout Database approaching 1000+ total workouts and nearly 500 of them coming from celebrities and top performers, it was time to actively put more of a focus on athletes.
It’s safe to say we’re also prioritizing our Celeb Diet Plan Database as we’ll, but don’t worry: I have a lot more workouts planned as well!
For this one we’re going to be breaking down how important Chris Paul views his nutrition, and then talk a little about the planning that goes into making it sustainable.
Spoiler Alert: it follows A LOT of the same principles we stand for here at SHJ.
Here’s what Paul tells Men’s Health:
“I’ve realized that maintaining your body is the most important thing, and stretching out and my nutrition are the biggest parts of that. It makes me feel like I’m much younger when I’m on the court. When you’re young, 21 years old, you can get out of shape and then you just get right back. When you get older, you have to work at it.”
Paul talks about the importance of stretching and training and also about getting into the habit of making it a daily ritual (he even compares it to how people go and get their morning Starbucks everyday), but then moves into more about his nutrition in an interview with Men’s Journal.
Here’s the full scoop:
What’s your diet and nutrition like, and how has that helped you in your NBA career? How about a favorite cheat meal?
The older I’ve gotten, the more I’ve realized how much diet is a factor. It’s become the most important thing. One of the biggest parts of staying healthy and in shape comes down to diet. I didn’t really get as into my diet and nutrition until I came to Los Angeles. I played with Grant Hill, and he used to talk to me about the 70-30 rule, the 80-20 rule of how the big number is the foods you eat and the small number is the training and exercise. Even during the summer, I’ll have a few cheat days because I’m a guy that loves food, but I stay on top of it. I try to eat as healthy as possible during the season, but during the summer is honestly when you have to probably eat better, because you’re not usually doing as much cardio by actually playing games. Cheat meal? It’s french fries—that’s my favorite that I just can’t say no to.
There’s A LOT to break down here.
Paul talks about 70-30 and 80-20 rule that we’ve seen other celebrities discuss when we broke down our Top Diets Among Celebrities, and something I also discuss a lot in my case studies in my book Superhuman Secrets.
But…alright, alright, let’s break this down completely below so you guys can read it broken up into an easier format.
