When you’re running up and down a basketball court for 48 minutes, 82 times a year, you’ve got to keep your body in peak physical condition to avoid breaking down. For guys in the NBA, this means adhering to a strict, healthy diet, without a lot of wiggle room. Perhaps that’s why new Charlotte Hornets guard Jeremy Lin, formerly of “Linsanity” fame, was eager to divulge the grub he gobbled down when he finally allowed himself to have one of those treasured “cheat meals.” During his recent reddit AMA, Lin detailed the mountain of food he consumed two years ago when his trainer gave him the green light.
Bruh, you hit up In-N-Out, McDonald’s, and Taco Bell all in one night? Even college students leaving bars bar at 3:00 a.m. on a weekend don’t consume that much food.
Lin isn’t a big guy, which makes his chow-a-thon even more impressive. That was quite a haul, though we wouldn’t recommend doing it, ever. You might gain 20 pounds in one night.
