LenDale White's Revolutionary "No Tequila" Diet

Illustration for article titled LenDale Whites Revolutionary No Tequila Diet

Football fans have been marveling at the transformation of Titans' running back LenDale White, who has trimmed his previous bowling ball-like physique down to a svelte 228-pound Mack Truck. So how did he do it? By not eating worms, obviously.


The rotund White has reportedly lost 30 pounds during this past offseason and is at his lowest fighting weight since graduating high school. What's his secret? No more late night taco runs? Putting back that extra slice of pizza? Switching from 2% to skim milk. Well, it does involve drinking:

"I really got to be honest," White said. "It wasn't a lot of major diet changes. (It was) watching what I drink. I was a big Patron consumer. ... That's what it was. I was drinking a lot, drank a lot of alcohol. I cut that out of my diet all the way. I don't drink at all. I cut the drinking, I stopped drinking for six months.

"It started falling off."

No mas tequila ... no mas Fatty McFatterson. How many shot glasses do you think you need to hold 30 pounds of Patron? Oh, and the fact that White chose a contract year to show up to camp in shape for the time in his life is just a happy coincidence for his accountant (and his tailor.)
