Nothing wrong with 4 egg omelette. Actually for his size he should add at least two more eggs and 4 strips of bacon.

It’s not the metabolism OP, it’s the steroids.

If you follow James on IG, he posts a decent amount of meal shots on his stories, and he does tend towards richer foods. But they always look fresh/homemade/chefmade, and he’s always working out.

When you get to Lebron-level athletes, they have such crazy high caloric requirements that they just need tons and tons of food, doesn’t matter what kind. E.g., prime Michael Phelps slamming whole pizzas all day long.

Think it’s far more likely Lebron simply works a lot harder in the gym than Thompson, steroids or not.

100% no doubt he works harder than TT, along with most of the NBA. I still think he uses/has used though but I don’t believe he’s the only one.

These guys are probably burning 5x cals of the normal person. Bron and other high level athletes eating exorbitant amount of carbs while staying lean isn't anywhere close to unbelievable. Especially for a freak like Lebron.

Didn't he lose a lot of weight in his 2nd Cleveland stint going on some low carb diet? He looked less explosive and sickly

edit:

James told reporters at his Nike sneaker event in Oregon that he cut out everything except meat, fish, fruit, and vegetables for 67 days. He did it to "test his mental fortitude," The Oregonian reports. He told SI: "I had no sugars, no dairy, I had no carbs.

Carbs are where your energy, power and explosiveness comes from. Its most certainly why Bron scrapped the diet so quickly. For some people, scoffing down french toast donuts etc wont make them fat (if they're already a gym rat like James). They just get bulky, Bron looks close to his Miami days size-wise.

Not even that bad consider how big he is and how active he is...He prolly need 5k calories to maintain his weight. This is why you see a lot of fat athletes when they retire.

It's amazing how people can slander someone with zero proof. Like you people could even begin to fathom having a fourth of Lebron's genetics
