Isaac took the advice a step further. He hired a chef to cook for him at home, and Kerkow-Provo consulted with the chef to explain Isaac’s nutritional needs. “Clearly there’s not a magical food to eat to put on all this weight,” said David Tenney, the Magic’s high performance director. “I think it’s about Jonathan and Zach sitting down and really figuring out what foods are healthy and that J.I. enjoys eating to hit the goals he wants to hit. I think that’s the trick with all NBA athletes: Everyone has their unique tastes that they like from a food perspective. The goal is to steer that to make it as healthy as possible because it does take this whole discipline of eating a lot.”
Isaac still must make a conscious effort to eat even when he feels full. A fifth or sixth meal of the day, plus the shakes and snacks, help him maintain his weight. The results have been impressive. When Magic swingman Evan Fournier returned to Orlando from a couple of months overseas this summer, he was shocked to see Isaac. Fournier recalled asking Isaac, “Did you grow this summer?” Practices and preseason games have made Fournier even more awestruck. “I feel like he’s bigger and more explosive, and he covers more space than last year, I think, which is great obviously,” Fournier said. “His defense is gonna be huge for us. So that’s really the only guy where I’m like, ‘Whoa, that’s impressive!’
