Kris Jenkins Loses 20 Pounds – Eating Cookies

According to staff at the New York Daily News, Jets nose tackle Kris Jenkins has lost 20 pounds by eating cookies. Jenkins, who missed the second half of last season with a torn ACL, has shed the pounds using Dr. Sanford Siegal’s Cookie Diet. “It sounds funny, but I got serious about it,” Jenkins, who had seen his weight balloon to 390 – told the Associated Press. “And, I have to say, it has been going great.”

The injury not only cut short his season but left him unable to exercise. “I couldn’t run or do anything, and that’s the hardest time I have personally to lose weight,” said Jenkins, who hopes to be down to 350 by the time training camp – which starts Sunday – is over in August. Whenever I can’t be active, I suffer. Honestly, I’ve had weight issues my whole career. It just got to the point where I got fed up.”

Not only is Jenkins in better shape, he could be in a position to beat out Ryan, who challenged him and teammate Damien Woody to a three-way weight-loss competition. When they weigh in on Sunday in Cortland, N.Y., the winner will have a donation made in his name to a charity.
