Los Angeles Lakers big man Dwight Howard has some advice for anyone who will listen: Take care of your body. Howard would know. As a young professional athlete, Howard had some awful eating habits, which included eating 24 candy bars a day.
But the 33-year-old Howard is a changed man now. He’s realized the value of healthy eating, and is no longer consuming “McDonald’s, chicken wings and honey buns every single day,” according to Bill Oram of The Athletic.
Howard handed out that advice after he was asked about being one of the last players to go straight from high school to the NBA.
