Orlando Magic player Glen Davis now counts tofu amongst his favorite foods. The forward talked to a few (rude) reporters about his new diet, why he made the change and how it’s going for him.

About five weeks ago the nearly 300 pound 6’9″ player fractured his left foot. Obviously, the less weight he has to stress his foot the better and the less chance of future injuries. That’s why he’s dropping weight by loading up on veggies.

He said, “I’m trying out this new vegan diet. Hopefully it can get done. You know, the lighter the better…Just trying to find ways to eat comfortably…It’s difficult but at the same time it’s about your mental mindset and you just gotta stay with it.”

When reporters asked him what his favorite food is on his new diet, he said, “I’m a big fan of tofu” and that he’s eating “a lot of vegetables.”

The reporters enjoyed asking him questions but also mocking the injured basketball player. When he first answers “vegan”, one reporter asks, “vegan or bacon?” They also go on to slam tofu and say it tastes like “chalk” or “air.” Davis handles the heckling well. Those reporters just haven’t had tofu prepared right. It’s delicious.

Check it out for yourself. You can see the interview below. He starts talking about veganism at the 1 minute and 23 second mark.
