BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Who is that svelte man patrolling the practice fields of Eagles training camp? Sean McDermott? Ted Daisher? Todd Pinkston? No. No. And no. It's your head coach, Andy Reid. OK, I might be exaggerating a tad here, but Big Red has dropped as much weight as a young lad.
Reid told espn.com that he lost approximately 75 pounds in the last three months using the Medifast plan. Andy looked thinner during minicamps in the spring, but the weight loss has become more pronounced with the start of training camp. He still self-admittedly has a ways to go, and said he'd like to shed 75 more.
A few years back, Reid lost a ton on the L.A. Weight Loss plan. But T.O., family strife and a few down seasons caused him to gain it all back. I'm not sure, but I think L.A. Weight Loss went out of business. I'm fairly sure it dropped Reid as a spokesman before it went down the tubes, so to speak.
