A healthy body is a healthy soul

One thing that never wavers is Amar’e Stoudemire’s commitment to his health. It’s not all lobster tails and midnight feasts for the All-Star forward. For optimal health and performance, Stoudemire consumes a balanced diet with balanced amounts of vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, protein and fat. A few years ago, Amar’e became interested in learning more about a kosher diet. After a trip to Israel, Stoudemire focused more on his diet. “I have a Hebrew background, and I read the Torah, which really explains the proper way to eat. I spent a week in Israel, just studying,” Stoudemire says. “From an athletic standpoint, I figure if you want to have a strong body, why not eat kosher?”
