The Tim Lincecum “Diet”?
San Francisco Giant ace Tim Lincecum is not your average big league ballplayer. With his long stringy hair, T-shirt and jeans wardrobe and unorthodox pitching delivery "The Freak"--as he is affectionately known--has long since ceased shocking the sports establishment. Until now. He recently revealed his usual order at one of his favorite "restaurants". (Warning: If you are on a diet you may not want to see this)
He dines regularly at In-N-Out burgers, the popular fast-food burger joints on the West Coast.His traditional fare?Three Double-Doubles. Two fries. A chocolate-strawberry shake. Ketchup please, but hold the lettuce and tomatoes."I'm not a big vegetable guy,'' he says.Let's see, three burgers at 590 calories. Two fries at 395 calories. A shake at 590 calories.
The grand total: 3,150 calories.
"I've gone away from eating more cheeseburgers,'' Lincecum says, "and just adding patties.''
The 5-11 right-hander has said that he has a difficult time putting weight on his 168 pound frame. If he keeps on ordering the usual that problem won't last for long.
Geez, no wonder the dude put on 11 pounds this spring.
