The biggest takeaway for me has been that there isn’t one particular diet that’s right while everything else is wrong. There are certain core concepts you have to be aware of if you want to be healthy — step away from the sugar and toxic oils being the biggest. The point is to be aware of what you’re eating. If you stop looking to food for satisfaction and enjoyment, chances are you will begin to enjoy it more. If you follow certain concepts like avoiding sugar and processed foods, you will enjoy life more, too.

Roy Hibbert has gained 35 pounds of muscle in two years eating more carbs than fat — and, during the offseason, consuming 6,000 calories a day. The Lakers have had success eating more fat than carbs.
