Lebron James and Cutting Sugar

For an athlete, besides the negative heart and blood conditions that can arise from excess sugar intake, sugar causes inflammation. Increase inflammation increases recovery time. As Lebron states, he occasionally eats sugar during season, but cuts it out during the playoffs. Those that recover faster perform better.

“When it comes to the playoffs, it kinda slows down the process of recovery.”
“In the postseason, optimal recovery — whoever can recover the fastest from game to game is going to put themselves in position to be successful.”
~ Lebron James
