Tim Linecum and the 3,150 calorie meal
San Francisco Giants ace Tim Lincecum, pitching this spring as if he’s ready to add another Cy Young award to his mantel, unleashed the bombshell Wednesday that makes him so darn good.
Nutritionists around the world may frown. Certainly the folks at Jenny Craig will scream in horror. But Lincecum revealed his secret, keeping his weight at 168 pounds.
He dines regularly at In-N-Out burgers, the popular fast-food burger joints on the West Coast.
His traditional fare?
Three Double-Doubles. Two fries. A chocolate-strawberry shake. Ketchup please, but hold the lettuce and tomatoes.
“I’m not a big vegetable guy,” he says.
Let’s see, three burgers at 590 calories. Two fries at 395 calories. A shake at 590 calories.
The grand total: 3,150 calories.
“I’ve gone away from eating more cheeseburgers,” Lincecum says, “and just adding patties.”
Geez, no wonder the dude put on 11 pounds this spring.
The Freak indeed.
