PLAYERS: Glen Davis
TEAMS: Orlando Magic
Glen “Big Baby” Davis has weighed more than 300 pounds several times since joining the Orlando Magic, and now he’s implementing a vegan diet to shed some pounds, which will also help his recovery from foot surgery. According to Josh Robbins, Orlando Sentinel: Glen Davis is trying a vegan diet — a diet in which he’s not consuming any animal products. He said he made the change at least in part to help his left foot, which he fractured on Jan. 30. “The lighter, the better,” Davis said. “No pressure on that foot. I’m just trying to find ways to eat comfortably and also have a little bit of taste. It’s difficult, but at the same time, it’s about your mental mind-set. You’ve just got to stay with it.”
