Lendale White: Sober = Skinny

Lendale White is the man. Because he’s hilarious. Because he’s a thug. Because he’s damn good at running that ball. But if there’s one thing Lendale isn’t, it’s a drunk… at least not any more. Okay, maybe drunk is too strong a word. The AP has just released Lendale’s secrets to success:

Not Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig or Nutrisystem. Forget about hiring a private chef to cook healthy meals.

LenDale White, the former USC standout, lost more than 30 pounds this offseason and is in his fourth training camp with the Tennessee Titans at his slimmest weight since high school. The running back admits he wishes he understood earlier in his career the importance of being in shape.

Just how did he lose the weight? White gave up tequila.

“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.”

Soon we’ll see if slender Lendale’s still got that thunder in his step. And if that’s the only way to shed those pounds, I think America may remain an obese nation for a while. It’s 9:30 a.m. Monday morning. Anybody thirsty? Pass the Patron.
