A metabolic state in which the body uses fat as a source of energy instead of glycogen (the body's stored form of carbohydrates found in the muscle and liver), ketosis practically guarantees weight loss. And it's apparent that LeBron James' 6'8" frame has gotten a lot leaner—and, at least he hopes, meaner, per a recent article in Sports Illustrated. see more

The Hottest Coach in College Football Still Has a Lot to Prove

The Craziest On-Court Meltdowns in the History of Tennis

For some reason, tennis has had a hard time shaking its stuffy reputation. You know, the country clubs, the pleated skirts.
