DK Metcalf’s Diet Is Going Viral Today

Given his chiseled physique, one would think DK Metcalf follows a super-strict diet to stay in optimal shape...They’d be wrong.

In an episode of Showtime Basketball’s “KG Certified,” the Seattle Seahawks wide receiver explained his unconventional diet

admitting to a dismayed Kevin Garnett that he’s “probably the worst person to ask” about the importance of nutrition.

“I eat one meal a day, drink one coffee and eat like three, four bags of candy,” Metcalf said.

When Garnett asked Metcalf what candy he’s consuming, the 24-year-old said he mixed bags of Skittles and Life Savers gummies the previous day

He confirmed that’s a regular occurrence to a stunned Garnett. It’s safe to say a team nutritionist has not approved this sugar-heavy plan

This is also a far cry from the health regiment Metcalf described to GQ’s Alex Shultz before beginning his rookie campaign in 2019.

“It’s a low-carb diet. A lot of proteins and veggies,” Metcalf said. “Like today, for breakfast, [my private chef] had me eating a lot of vegetables, three slices of bacon, and some fruit.

I try not to eat a lot of fats and oils, and I stay away from carbs and sugars.

Despite his sweet tooth, Metcalf has scored 29 touchdowns in three tremendous NFL seasons
