current user data

#1
I like to load data from various tables that belong to a logged-in user and keep it as long as the user is logged in. I can do that in 2 ways.

1 SESSION
When a user login, I grab and store the user data in a session array, like $_SESSION['current_user']. Of course, I need to ensure that if the user data changes throughout the session, the session data has to change accordingly.

2 Grab data on every request
When a logged-in user requests any page, all user data is grabbed from each table and is stored in an array, like $current_user

Which performs best? What is best practice? Security issues?
