John Daly Once Lost 67 Pounds By Going On The Jack Daniel’s & Popcorn Diet

John Daly, diet guru. Did you ever think that is something you would hear?

In a recent interview, Daly revealed an old story about the beginning of his career at the University of Arkansas. Daly was asked to lose weight, so he decided to try out a special diet to lose 67 pounds.

What is the secret to trimming the pounds?

Well, if you are John Daly, it is apparently Jack Daniels and popcorn.

From Golfweek

Daly recalls that in order to play college golf at Arkansas, he was told he had to shed some weight. So, he lost 67 pounds in 2 1/2 months thanks to the time-tested diet of … Jack Daniel’s and popcorn. As for a long-term way to keep off weight, Daly claims that then-Razorbacks coach Steve Loy – who would go on to coach at Arizona State and then become Phil Mickelson’s agent – told him, “Smoke a cigarette, it’ll curb your appetite.” And (allegedly) thus

Jack Daniel’s, popcorn and cigarettes.

That sounds like an easy enough diet to follow to me. Count me in.
