One of the best athletes in the world has gone on a diet.  LeBron James recently cut out carbs to lose some weight.

LeBron seems to be perturbed by people thinking he weighs over 270 pounds according to this Yahoo article.

Brian Windhorst of ESPN says in the article:

"He has actually been in the mid-260s and sometimes over 270 in his career. He doesn't like talking about it. I don't even know what they list him at. I think they might list him at 250. He has been a little self-conscious about that in recent years, so I think there's a secondary reason as well."

Even though he endorses Mickey D's, it looks like LeBron will be laying off the trips to McDonald's.  Plus, I'm sure he doesn't want all that fast food going to his ass and thighs.
