Carmelo Anthony has been the talk of the hoop and gossip sites for the past week because of his altercation with Kevin Garnett and rumored off the court marital problems with LaLa who deserves a big royalty check from General Mills. Aside from these issues he supposedly hasn’t been enjoying his diet in the past few weeks either because he’s been fasting for the past 15 days and this is not a reference to not being able to eat his favorite cereal.
“It’s a long story, man,” he said of his fast. “I haven’t had a good meal in about two and a half weeks. No meats, no carbs, anything like that. So I don’t know how I was out there competing at high level. It’s been some games this past week where your body just feels depleted out there and you’re trying to find a way to get some energy.” “But I surrender, I’m done. I’m going to get some food right now.”
He said the first thing he plans on getting is “the biggest steak” he can possibly get and from the sounds of it, I think he deserves to have March 14th come early to celebrate the little known Holiday.
Thanks to Adam Zagoria’s blog for caring about Melo’s eating habits.
