No More Pork For This Hog

Posted by Brian Tinsman on July 27, 2011 – 2:29 pm

Don’t look for offensive tackle Trent Williams at your local fast food joint anymore.

As a senior in college, Williams reported to the NFL Combine at 315 pounds, and in prime physical condition.  By the middle of his rookie season, he had slipped off his good habits and gained 10 to 12 pounds.

Over the summer, he refocused his diet and cut out his old friends, the colonel and the king.  He looks to be in Combine-shape again.

“I shed a few pounds, but mostly I was trying to shift it around,” he said, talking about adding muscle.  “I’m right around 319, 318.  I mean, I wasn’t focused on losing weight, I was just eating better and, y’know, being a healthier being.  I was about 326 last year.”

Williams has no reason to gain or lose weight at his position, but it’s nice to see him look closer to his physical peak.  While he attributed many of his errors last year to mental mistakes, junk food and carrying extra weight won’t help your brains or your waistline.

Williams attributed some of his problems to partaking in “fourth meal,” but said he also had to exorcise a worse demon: pork.

“I tried to stop eating pork, y’know,” he said.  “It’s in everything!”

He confessed: “Y’know, I fell victim a couple times to letting myself cheat, but for the most part, I just tried to cut out the fried food three-times a day.  I can’t do that no more.  I can’t be eating Burger King at 2 o’clock in the morning.  I tried to cut out stuff like that.”

For anyone concerned about Williams slimming down too much, take a deep breath–a man has to eat.  “Yeah, you gotta eat, but eat healthier,” he said.  “There are way better options than a Whopper.”

Williams’s development will help define the expectations for the team in 2011.  When asked if he was leaving the park for some Taco Bell, Williams laughed and said, “No, I might hit Subway.”

    Hello [Sarcastic] Noiseless Patient Spider-

    From dictionary.com:
    ex·or·cise   
    [ek-sawr-sahyz, -ser-]
    –verb (used with object), -cised, -cis·ing.
    1. to seek to expel (an evil spirit) by adjuration or religious or solemn ceremonies: to exorcise a demon.
    2. to free (a person, place, etc.) of evil spirits or malignant influences.

    But I’m sure you knew that, right? :-)

    Burger King loves to send out little coupon books in the mail. Hold your eyes peeled for these, as they will have the Burger King brand on them, and much more.
