Football and food: In the RightSize
Jesse Chatman tells Sports Illustrated this week how a weakness for Mexican food and anything fried nearly derailed his NFL career. After an injury Chatman ballooned from 220 to 283 pounds. Then he started exercising -- but even a NFL regiment -- couldn't get him to his playing weight.
To shed those 60 pounds, Chatman changed his diet.
He now eats egg whites with mushrooms in the morning, spinach salad with chicken at lunch and salmon with oregano and lemon at night.
By skipping the fast food restaurants, Chatman made the Miami Dolphins roster.
Goes to show you that eating the RightSize is one way to be healthy and to be an NFL player!
