Former USC running back LenDale White lost 30 pounds during the off-season, according to an Associated Press story Sunday. How did he do it? He stopped drinking alcohol.
"I was drinking a lot," White, who now plays for the Tennessee Titans, told AP. "I cut that out of my diet all the way. I don't drink at all."
The weight, he says, "started falling off."
White's favorite beverage was tequila, which cost him 65 calories per 1 ounce serving.
Reducing alcohol use is often the forgotten component of a healthy diet. The calories in one little drink are fairly shocking. Here's a look at the calories in alcohol from the website of College Drinking: Changing the Culture.
