Andre Drummond drinks a beer per day to get the calories

Andre Drummond is gearing up for a potential contract year.

That means getting in better shape.

Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press:

The Detroit Pistons center said recently he has eliminated red meat from his diet mainly consisting of fish and vegetables.

To ensure the necessary caloric intake, he drinks a beer per day.

He was drawn to Miller Lite because, well, that’s what his personal chef bought.

I’m not a nutritionist, but it seems there are healthier ways to get calories. That said, Drummond is 6-foot-11 with a wide frame. I doubt a single light beer per day will harm him. If he enjoys it, that matters, too.

This just isn’t how it usually works.
