Meet Michael Porter Jr., self-proclaimed ‘best player in the draft’ and raw vegan
It is official!
Dr Doug Graham, a 4 time speaker at Fruitfest, is working closely with top NBA draft prospect Michael Porter Jr.
Reports suggest that Porter is heading towards a raw vegan diet. Dr Graham has helped other high level athletes, including an NBA player, with improving their performance through a raw vegan diet.
In his book, the 80/10/10 Diet, Dr Graham came up with a plan that works not only for athletes but anyone wishing to pursue greater health with a raw vegan diet.
A recent article it states:
“Last fall, the Kansas City Star published a story about the Porter family’s diet and how it has changed since the family brought in a “performance consultant”. Lisa Porter, especially, saw the importance of diet in helping her sons Michael and Jontay (also a freshman at Mizzou who is entering the draft) maximize their physical abilities as they prepared to play basketball in college and the NBA. As the matriarch of the Porter family, Lisa brought in Doug Graham, a doctor of chiropractic medicine from outside of London, to coach her and the rest of the ten-person household on proper nutrition.
Graham had been advising the family on their diet for some time but last year he spent several days as a live-in chef and nutritionist, teaching lessons in the kitchen around the benefits of consuming a raw vegan diet.
According to Graham, “cooking food can produce ‘detriments’ to the body, anti-nutrients that increase the need for specific minerals, vitamins and antioxidants”. Recipes that Graham taught the Porters included vegan pizza with a zucchini crust, raw cinnamon buns, kale chips, and cashew-based cheese sauces to use in Mexican dishes.”

It will be interesting to see how this plays out. If Michael lives up to his potential he could become one of the biggest stars in the NBA. This could make him one of the best-known athletes in the world. If the raw vegan diet is proved to help his performances stand out perhaps more athletes will move to experimenting with a raw vegan diet for their health.
At the UK Fruitfest this year, Dr Graham will be revealing some of his strategies that have helped him coach others to high- level performance. This will take place on our special extra day mastermind programme.
We hope to see you there!
