LenDale White quits tequila, drops 30 lbs.

"LenWhale" had been the butt of jokes

Tennessee Titans running back LenDale White is reportedly the slimmest he's been since high school, losing 30 pounds in the offseason. How'd he do it? He says it's all thanks to quitting tequila.

"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 Patrón 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."
