You want to know how dedicated Packers QB Aaron Rodgers – coming off his Super Bowl-winning season – is to keep off the extra weight? He’s willing to give up his ultimate gastronomical pleasure.

That’d be Starburst jelly beans.

But his discipline, even in the face of a lockout that has kept him from working out at Green Bay’s team facility and practicing with his teammates, has led him to a lofty  accomplishment.

He told ESPN Milwaukee radio, via the Green Bay Press Gazette, that he’s lost 10-12 pounds because of a healthier, jelly bean-less diet.

“After the Super Bowl and all that stuff, I probably had got into the low 230s, which is not abnormal,” Rodgers said during a recent radio interview. “I love eating, and I love sweets, and I love hamburgers and steak and potatoes. And I just wanted to be a little bit healthier, starting this offseason. So I started working with a guy who knows nutrition.”

And you know what? Rodgers feels healthier.

“When I’m eating right, my energy level spikes, and I have energy all day and I feel better,” he said.

I agree BuckManster.  What a stupid, pointless article.  Aaron Rodgers have given up the jelly beans.  Seriously, c'mon.  Can't wait til these guys actually have something real to write about.  Then we can properly critique them... and have something to debate on here instead of recycled arguments like Big Ben elite or not (not btw).

Does this mean he will no longer do that "My belt doesn't fit anymore" thing in the end zone?

Am I ever relieved to see this.

The whole time I watched him play in the Super Bowl, all I could think was "Hmmm, looks like he might be getting a little pudgy there."

(Please, God, bring us a football season before these sportswriters need to dig any deeper for something to cover.)
