No more fried food for Boston’s Jayson Tatum

There typically comes a point in any NBA star’s career where they realize the diet they had as a teenager simply is not good enough for them to keep going with as a rising player in the league if they want to get to their best selves in terms of athletic ability and conditioning.

And after running out of gas in the 2022 NBA Finals, Boston Celtics star swingman Jayson Tatum decided it was his own time to make some dietary changes in his life to ensure that will not happen to him again. Speaking about this decision in a recent interview with the eponymous host of the “In Depth with Jason Bensinger” show, the St. Louis native explained what caused him to chart a new course when it comes to what he eats.

Take a look at the clip embedded below to hear what he had to say.
