How a MasterChef aims to help 6’7” Zion Williamson weigh less than 295 pounds and be the next LeBron James

With contractual obligations requiring Zion Williamson to weigh less than 295 pounds, the NOLA star’s personal chef has a huge role to play.

There is no doubt that zion williamson she’s a beast when she’s healthy. After averaging an astounding 22.5/6.3/2.1 in his rookie season, “Zanos” unleashed his full potential when he went on to improve on 27 points, 7.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists on 61.1% FG while being named an All-Star in his second season.

Being a heavyweight, Williamson’s injuries have been a major concern for the NOLA front office. In the former Duke Blue Devil’s first 3 seasons, he has only played 85 games.

According to the maximum extension of the 5-year, $193 million rookie contract Zion recently signed, the 6-foot-7 forward is required to keep his weight (in pounds) and his body fat percentage below 295. Ditto, All-Star’s personal chef, Christian Green, will play a vital role. And the masterchef is very good aware of that

“It’s not just me,” Green said. “I give all due credit and praise to his family, to his strength coach. I’m just one piece. I’m not going to sit here and say that he started with me. It starts with Zion, his family, his strength coach. I will say that I am an important piece, not the important piece. But with the camp and the family behind him, he’s very godly, very spiritual, he’s on the right track.

“I really think Zion Williamson is going to be the next big thing”: Christian Green

Green, who was also an athlete, believes in his client’s potential. Christian further said:

“I think he’s going to be the best once LeBron James…I think so. There are some naysayers who don’t see it, but I really think he’s going to be the next big thing. That to me, he’s already the next big thing.”

in a previous interviewChristian spoke about the foods the left-hander liked to eat and how the Pels star has “come a long way.”

“I started with Zion in March. His camp came up to me and I sat down with him. Zion loves seafood. He loves salmon, so any chance he gets to give him shellfish, seared fish. Nothing fried, nothing unhealthy. Our goal is to get him where he needs to be. Honestly, being with him the first few months, we’ve come a long way. He looks good.”

Additionally, the chef discussed his mindset of working with the high-flying striker.

“I’m focusing on Zion and getting him in the best shape he’s ever going to be. Being in the position that I am currently working with Zion is truly a blessing and for me to be his personal chef on this journey with him is more of a test for myself.”

“I work side by side with his strength coach. I freestyle (meals) and with them giving me the opportunity to do so, it’s all healthy across the board. I’m not lenient with Zion regarding what he’s not supposed to have. Everything is healthy with me across the board.”

Hopefully, Christian will be able to help Zion not cross this 295-pound threshold.
