It was reported on Wednesday that Cleveland Browns wide receiver Greg Little came into this offseason’s OTAs looking leaner, which is true, as he has lost 11 pounds. This weight loss came after a discussion with head coach Pat Shurmur regarding what he can do to improve in his second season.
So far, it’s paying off. The leaner look has made him faster on the field, which is great to hear, but are you wondering how Little was able to pull off the weight loss? As it turns out, he realized the same thing every regular schmoe knows: eating seven to ten cupcakes per day isn’t the best thing for one’s diet.
Little blamed his cupcake addiction on some pretty irresistible treats made by linebacker Chris Gocong’s wife.
"“Every Thursday, (linebacker) Chris Gocong’s wife would make cupcakes, so I’d eat about seven to 10 and the guys would get on me about that,” Little said via the Akron Beacon-Journal. “So that’s one of the things that I definitely cut out.”"
Will the new cupcake-less diet result in a better sophomore season for Little? With that increased speed, and Brandon Weeden slinging the ball around (that’s right, he’ll be the starter), the pieces are certainly in place for a breakout year.
