Ben Roethlisberger Cut Sugar, Carbs To Help Prolong Career 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jul 27, 2018 1:12 pm

In an effort to help prolong his playing career, Ben Roethlisberger cut sugar and carbs from his diet this offseason.

Roethlisberger, 36, worked with a personal trainer this summer.

"Knees, ankles, being lighter -- those are all positives when it comes to this age and playing football, where you're pounding on your knees and you've had a couple of knee surgeries," he said. "Anything you can do to lighten the load on your knees is important."

Roethlisberger confirmed he has lost weight but wouldn't reveal the number.

I don't think his brain has functioned since that motorcycle accident. Otherwise, this guy would have retired after the severe beatings he has taken over the years. Honestly, what does he have left to prove? He's got the super bowls and Steelers are contenders every year since at least 2005. I think carbs are the least of his worries but I eat a carb free diet and so far I think my brain is working fine.
