Kobe Bryant Takes the Lakers Gluten-free

Celiac.com 01/20/2014 - Word is out that Kobe Bryant is looking to help the Los Angeles Lakers shed weight with high protein, gluten-free, Paleo-style diet plan that is high in healthy fats.

Photo: Wikimedia Commons--Keith AllisonIn an interview with the Healthy Home Economist, LA Lakers trainer Gary Vitti says that Kobe's diet is rich in grass-fed beef and free-range eggs, and that any food containing corn syrup or gluten is strictly forbidden.

The article quotes Vitti as reciting the dangers of a low-fat diet, and saying that "Kobe is not following the USDA Food Pyramid – in fact, he’s following the inverse."

Says Vitti, Kobe is focused on "getting traditional fats into his diet and the wrong fats out."

The Lakers even have a name for their plan. It’s called PRO Nutrition, short for Performance, Recovery and Orthogenesis. The diet has many Laker players boasting of faster injury recovery, and less joint soreness than last season.

So will the gluten-free, high-fat, high protein diet pay dividends for the Lakers? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below, and stay tuned.

While I appreciate the product development that comes from so many going GF, I am very concerned about it being tied to fad diets such as Paleo. The two should be treated quite differently: One is a life-and-death situation for millions of people, while the other is yet another in a long line of scientifically unsupported lifestyle choices.

You really should read the science behind the "Paleo diet" and whole foods movement. The low-fat diet, supported by the USDA for the last forty years, is the true fad diet.
