LeBron James has an incredible work ethic that helps him take care of his body, but that’s not the only thing that’s contributed to his outstanding performance year-in and year-out.

According to Chris Haynes of Cleveland.com, LeBron James gave up pork seven years ago, and hasn’t changed that since.

For the last seven years, he said he has eliminated pork from his diet. One of his uncles first suggested he give it a try about a decade ago to see if he might notice an improvement in his physical wellness.

After initially refusing, James eventually gave it a shot and never looked back.

“Oh, you can tell the difference,” James told cleveland.com. “It’s in how I recover, the energy I have. It has helped a lot with my performance. Overall, I’ve just been feeling good.”
