Fresh fruit also adds a great value to the diet of any athlete. Harden too have included fresh fruits like pineapple, watermelon, strawberries, apples and oranges in his diet.
The Rockets star holds a stake in BODYARMOR, his go-to source for hydration. He drinks the sports drink throughout the day to keep himself hydrated.
For a pre-game meal, Harden sticks with pasta and a source of protein, like grilled chicken, to keep him satisfied and energized through the final buzzer. In fish he loves Seabass and halibut which are two of his favorites.
Harden says he says he is not really “a candy or chips” kind of guy, but loves to indulge on anything sweet. “Cookies, ice cream, brownies, hot fudge sundaes,” he says.
