LenDale White, the thunder portion of the Tennessee Titan’s thunder and lightning backfield — also featuring Chris Johnson, lost more than 30 pounds this off-season. His not-so-closely-guarded dieting secret?
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.
White admits he was as heavy as 265 pounds last season, a frame that isn’t entirely suited for 80-yard touchdown runs.
Patron, long a staple of the high-class and music videos, clocks in at
104 calories per 1.5 ounces — the standard size of a shot.
