American professional basketball player Walter Ray Allen, Jr., better known as Ray Allen, was born on July 20, 1975 in Merced, California. He is the son of Flora and Walter Allen, Sr. A product of University of Connecticut, his basketball career started when he was recruited by Karl Hobbs, a college basketball coach. In 1996, he officially became an NBA player when he was one of the 1996 NBA Drafted players and was chosen by the Minnesota Timberwolves. It was in 2007 when he joined the Boston Celtics team, along with Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. The same year, he gathered 17,000 points that led to their victory against Toronto Raptors. In 2012, he moved to Miami Heat and joined LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade, and other Heat players and was able to incorporate points towards the team’s championship. Presently, he still plays for the said team.
As a basketball player, it is no question why Ray stays active and healthy. But of course, daily physical activities are much better when incorporated with a healthy diet.
Ray is known to be practicing a Paleo diet, a kind of diet that is more on consuming high amount of animal protein, fruits, and vegetables. So, how does the basketball star find this diet? “The first three or four days, it was a task because I was getting headaches, my body felt achy,” Ray told the Examiner. “But I just started living on salads and fruit and protein and salmon and chicken. I didn’t have soda, any Gatorade. I had unsweetened iced tea and water, and that’s it.”
