Many were wondering if there would even be an NBA season this year. The player’s lockout lasted longer than expected, but the now shortened season is underway and fans couldn’t be happier. While the lockout was frustrating, it looks like one player took advantage of his extra off time to drop weight and get in the best shape of his life. Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love returned to the court nearly 25 pounds lighter this season.
Love played for UCLA in college and was drafted in 2008 to the NBA. Coming in a 6’ 10”, Love has always been one of the biggest players on the court. This summer Love decided to make some changes to his size for his performance’s sake. He admits he never felt he needed to lose weight, he just wanted to be a better conditioned athlete.
Part of that conditioning included changing his diet. Love relied on ZEN Foods to provide him with the calories and nutrients he needed during his intense conditioning. ZEN Foods is a meal delivery service. They provide tailored and calorie controlled meals for each individual. Love had each day’s food delivered at night so he could wake with a nutritious breakfast. Love explained how this took the guess work out of nutrition and he was able to fuel his workouts with high quality and nutritious foods.
It looks like Hollywood heartthrob Zac Efron may be trying to lose weight, now that shooting for The Lucky One has wrapped. Besides getting a buzz cut, Efron gained about 18 pounds to play a veteran of the Iraq War. “I was just eating, eating, eating,” he said of preparing for the role.
Efron was recently spotted carrying a cooler bag from Z.E.N., a California meal delivery service that specializes in healthy and convenient diet plans. Z.E.N. offers several programs, including one for weight loss, one for maintaining a healthy weight, and a cleanse program for rapid weight loss. Z.E.N. stands for “Zero Effort Nutrition,” and provides its clients with three fresh meals per day, plus dessert and a snack. The company also offers a totally personalized program, so customers can tailor their diets to their tastes and needs.
