LeBron James is one of the most physically-gifted athletes in the universe. You have to wonder about his workout routine considering his incredible combination of size and speed, but what about his diet and eating tendencies?

LBJ would probably tell anyone he treats his body like a temple, but ex-teammate Tristan Thompson has a differing perspective. The King is known for being an avid consumer of red wine, but his guilty pleasure indulgence doesn't end there.

LBJ's eating habits fascinated the 28-year-old center, who couldn't believe his teammate's ability to douse his french toast and fruit in syrup and eat so much throughout the day. Thomspon once tried to replicate James' diet but failed to keep up.

You know you're in shape when you're able to stuff yourself with thousands of calories and feel comfortable enough to play at the highest level of basketball for 30+ minutes.

Just because James burns all those calories doesn't mean it's always with the healthiest of foods. His body is in superior form, but it's no product of a good diet, according to Thompson.
