Ravens' Eric Weddle Consumes Ice Cream Loaded with Toppings After Week 1 Win

A professional NFL player must treat his body like a temple in order to enjoy a long, healthy career. Athletes dedicate their time, energy and money into maximizing their performance with strict training and diet regimens. 

When that work yields a victory, Eric Weddle celebrates with a sugar overload.

Nutritionists—especially those employed by the Baltimore Ravens—should look away. Following Baltimore's Week 1 win over the Cincinnati Bengals, the star safety celebrated the shutout by creating a bowl full of unhealthy choices.

The 32-year-old tweeted a photo of ice cream sprinkled with Oreo cookies, caramel and other sweet toppings. Before sharing the final product, he documented the purchasing of his ingredients.

According to ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley, Weddle honors this tradition after every victory. He said he ate around a gallon of ice cream last season. They went 8-8. 

A better 2017 will lead to a higher calorie consumption. And if they win it all? Weddle agreed to a fan's request to host a giant ice-cream party at M&T Bank Stadium.
