johnny green balls Posted January 20, 2010 Share Posted January 20, 2010 wouldn't it be typical jets luck to finally get a legit hc and have him keel over with a heart attack after his first season? Jets Head Coach Said To Eat 7,000 Calories A Day Just 1 Win From Super Bowl, Jets Head Coach Devouring Competition On The Field And Also At The Dinner TableNEW YORK (CBS) Jets head coach Rex Ryan, center, reportedly eats up to 7,000 calories a day. It could be an appetite for victory but is it healthy? You could say Jets head coach Rex Ryan is devouring the competition at the dinner table. Needing just a win to get to the team's first Super Bowl in 41 years, many believe Gang Green and Ryan have made it to the big time. "To have this football team two games away from being world champions is really, really amazing," Ryan said. It's not easy staying on top of this scale. At 6-foot-4 and weighing approximately 350 pounds, Ryan reportedly eats about 7,000 calories a day, reports CBS station WCBS-TV. Nutritionist Keri Glassman said that's no small feat. "So imagine eating a healthy balanced diet for five days and then pushing it all into one day. That's about 7,000 calories," Glassman said. Gallagher's Steak House in Times Square served WCBS-TV staff an approximately 7,000-calorie portion of their Jets power lunch menu, including the "Dustin Keller BLT" at 600 calories, the "Mark Sanchez Cab Steak" at 1,100 calories and the "Rex Ryan Classic Burger" at 1,300 calories. "That's on average about 5,000 extra calories a day, which equals an extra 10 pounds a week," Glassman said. "Meaning the average person could gain 10 pounds a week from consuming that many calories." That 7,000-calorie appetite is also equal to eating 33 McDonald's hamburgers or drinking 26 Starbucks caramel frappucchinos. Or eating 34 Hershey milk chocolate bars. "That's awful. Typical American I guess," one tourist said in disgust. "Wow! That's a little too much. But he seems to be doing his job. It works," fan Andrew Williams said. In 2007, Ryan, then with the Baltimore Ravens, said he didn't know "how your weight can make you a better coach." It's not the healthiest diet but it works for Rex so who's complaining? Perhaps this is the true dinner, lunch and breakfast of champions. Ryan said he's been trying to lose weight. He's been on a yo-yo diet but that has been unsuccessful.
