Green Bay Packers’ Eddie Lacy Stirs Buzz With ‘Fat’ Photo

Green Bay Packers' Eddie Lacy Stirs Buzz With 'Fat' PhotoGreen Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy looks like he put on a lot of weight quickly, or this is just a really bad photo of him.

‘Looking rather large’

According to David Woods of The Scorethe photo on the left is from OTAs earlier this year, and the photo on the right of Lacy looking rather large is from training camp this week. The photo was originally posted on Packers.com before being passed around Twitter on Monday.


‘Bad angle’

In an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel from July 13, Lacy might have given an explanation for his apparent weight gain.

In Green Bay, Lacy admitted, he’s been splurging too much on fast food. During off-season practices, he weighed in at 238 pounds, a high number that, believe it or not, might be kind.

Even if the photo is just a bad angle, it’s clear that Lacy has gained some weight.

Daily Soft Drink Increases Diabetes Risk

Daily Soft Drink Increases Diabetes RiskDrinking one or more cans of sugary soft drinks a day is linked to an increased risk of diabetes in later life, a study suggests. A can a day raises the relative risk of Type-2 diabetes by about a fifth, compared with one can a month or under, say European scientists. The report in the journal Diabetologia mirrors previous US findings.

‘Calorific’

A diabetes charity recommends limiting sugary foods and drinks as they are calorific and can cause weight gain. The latest research was carried out in the UK, Germany, Denmark, Italy, Spain, Sweden, France and the Netherlands. Some 350,000 individuals were questioned about their diet, as part of a large European study looking at links between diet and cancer.

“The consumption of sugar sweetened soft drinks increases your risk of diabetes – so for every can of soft drinks that you drink per day, the risk is higher,” lead researcher Dora Romaguera from Imperial College London told BBC News.


‘Deleterious effect on health’

She called for clearer public health information on the effects of sugary soft drinks: “Given the increase in sweet beverage consumption in Europe, clear messages on its deleterious effect on health should be given to the population,” Dr Romaguera and colleagues conclude in their research paper.

Gavin Partington, director general of the drinks industry body the British Soft Drinks Association said: “Soft drinks are safe to consume but, like all other food and drink, should be consumed in moderation as part of a balanced diet.”

How many glasses or cans of soft drinks do you consume in a day? Do you think you are in danger of having diabetes later on in life?
