Carmelo Anthony has been fasting for more than two weeks. For spiritual reasons.
Just a guess, but I imagine that includes no Honey Nut Cheerios?
Anthony said the fasting was for spiritual reasons. Said he was going out now to find the biggest steak he could right now.

Amare Stoudemire also revealed that he has been on a strict diet for a while now, and Knicks fans are now going to be pondering dietary/culinary matters in the days ahead as the team prepares to go to London and perhaps rebound from five losses in seven games with a two-game winning streak. They need to beat the Detroit Pistons in order to do it.
The last time they played an NBA game in London, it was Nets-Raptors and the fans all had to leave early to catch the last subway.
Anyway, Anthony will be heading overseas having broken his fast.
But was it a factor in his team’s recent slump? Or his drop in our new MVP rankings?
