Chris Paul, the NBA player, sure made a splash. He decided to switch up his eating habits, going all vegan. It’s a big deal, especially considering he’s one of the older players still playing at the top of his game. He even reckons his injury recovery time has improved.
He recently popped up on DeAndre Jordan’s “Vino Talk” podcast. They chatted about a bunch of stuff. But the real juicy bit? When the Warriors player talked about his health improvements since he changed his diet.
Jordan’s also hopped on the vegan train, so they had plenty to talk about. “My gut health changed. My recovery has changed,” Paul shared. He feels like he bounces back faster after a game and has more energy.

Paul first started messing with his diet when he was playing in Oklahoma City. He was 34 then. He played in 70 games that year, plus the playoffs. That’s the most he’s played in four seasons.
Now at 38, he’s not just vegan, he’s also investing in companies that promote healthier diets. Just like he did with Jay-Z a couple of years back.
One of his recent investments is Meati Foods. They’re shaking things up in the alternative protein sector. “When I choose to invest in a company, I look at everything from the quality of the products to how our values align,” he said.
“Meati and I share an understanding that building something great involves being willing to put in the work. Nutrition has to taste good and be good for you. It’s an exciting time to invest and make a real impact with Meati, a company committed to whole food nutrition that tastes amazing,” he added.
CP3 also spilled the beans on two current NBA superstars who were once part of his famous basketball summer camp. Many pro and college basketball athletes started out training in camps during the summer. It’s a great way to hone their skills and network in the sports industry. Chris Paul has always promoted his own camp during the offseason.
“The first year that we had camp, Eric Bledsoe and Steph Curry were both campers,” he said. “Trae Young came in high school and college.” This means that CP3 and Curry have known each other for 15 years already and spent most of their careers being bitter rivals.
