LenDale White showed up at training camp for the Tennessee Titans 30 pounds lighter than last year and the slimmest he's been since high school. He weighted in at 228 pounds on the first day of camp.

So how did you do it, LenDale?

"I really got to be honest," White said. "It wasn't a lot of major diet changes. (It was) watching what I drink. I was a big Patron consumer. ... That's what it was. I was drinking a lot, drank a lot of alcohol. I cut that out of my diet all the way. I don't drink at all. I cut the drinking, I stopped drinking for six months... It started falling off."

We all know that alcohol is bad for people trying to lose weight, but just how much tequila was this guy drinking in order to lose 30 pounds by cutting it out of his routine?

All joking aside, this should help White, who led the AFC with 15 touchdowns last season but was mostly a short yardage/goal line back. It would give the Titans an explosive backfield combination with the speedy Chris Johnson and a suddenly more athletic White as a tandem.
