Giannis Antetokounmpo’s ‘Skittles’ Obsessions Might Push Him Down Dwight Howard’s 5000 Calorie Diet


Giannis Antetokounmpo may have come into the league as a skinny kid. But now he is a bag, grown, muscular man, weighing in at a whopping 242 lbs. And as you’d imagine, that doesn’t just happen on its own.

Of course, there is a lot of lifting weights going on around here. But, something that’s just as important as curling iron in this case, is eating right. And in the Greek Freak’s case, it has to have a high number of calories.

So, to meet his calorie targets for the day, American snacks have become a rather easy target over the years. And if his most recent tweet is any indication, he may be heading down a road Dwight Howard knows all too well.

Giannis Antetokounmpo puts out a tweet begging for some Skittles

Skittles are a rather popular type of candy that are among the sweetest in the mainstream market. And of course, to make that happen, there is a lot more sugar present within each piece.

Despite all that, or rather perhaps because of it, Giannis wants some, and he wants them bad.

Take a look at his post below.

I need some skittles.

With all the American snacks Giannis Antetokounmpo now loves to snack on, he is almost reaching peak Dwight Howard levels.

And we must say, that was quite the story when it was underway.

Dwight Howard had an entire Skittles machine in his house

During his time with the Lakers, Dwight Howard’s candy addiction had reached astronomical levels.

The amount of sugar he was taking in caused him to have a panic attack, which prompted him to reveal his diet to a nutritionist.

If Dwight Howard wants to eat a 54 oz. bag of Skittles every day until he’s 85 without spending any of his current earnings, he’d need to stay on the Lakers roster for 13 days.

Here it was found out that not only did Howard have a Skittles machine in his house, but he also had the equivalent of 24 chocolate bars per day. That’s 5000 calories per day.
