Mike Williams On The 7,000-Calorie DietDecember 11th, 2012
Joe always gets a laugh out of seeing the various nutrition and post-workout replenishment directives on display in the Bucs’ locker room, courtesy of the team nutritionist.
Joe’s all-time favorite was a post-practice option of immediately consuming about 24 ounces of chocolate milk along with more healthy feasting.
These guys consume a hell of a lot of chow.
But it surprised Joe to hear skinny Mike Williams last night on his radio show talk about downing 7,000 calories daily during the season — 7,000! Williams said he gets heat from the team nutritionist about eating vegetables — “he sounds like my mom” — and primarily loads up on steak and pasta, and then he’ll often grab another steak on his own after eating “what they give me.”
Damn, Joe should have played in the NFL. What a dream job.
If Williams is inhaling 7,000 calories, what is, say, Roy Miller gobbling up? And what was Miller eating when the heinous Jim Bates Experience ordered him to gain serious weight after being drafted? These thoughts almost made Joe forget about Rachel Watson for a moment.
