My son graduated form Louisiana Teck University with a bachelor degree in Business management, but he played football the whole time he was there; and hoped that a football career was possible after gaining weight and buffing up his body ; he found out he was neither big enough or tall enough to qualify. My son was disappointed but he told me that he was going to put on his street suit and set behind a desk, so that was exactly what he did.
He kept the weight on, and over the years he put on more weight, and now I concerned about his weight situation ;because of diabetes. His wife is not a cook, so his eating habits aren't as good as, I would like them to be; He eats fast food unless he cooks himself and that 's asking a lot since he's the only one working. His wife is having a handicap problem with her leg so he's doing it, all an he doesn't have a lot of time to come home; and cook for himself every day. I suggested that he needs to opt for more salad, poultry fish,and turkey to help with his diet plan.
Anyway, young men that 's trying to make a career of Pro-football need to take care of their health too, in order to live through football. When they go out for the team, they take their bodies through a lot of unhealthy changes; by gaining excess weight and trying to look good, and be seen by the football scouts. I don't think any of them at the time, know that they 're putting their lives at risk ; by gaining all the excessive weight.
They go through all these unhealthy changes for the purpose of trying to play football; but most times they don't even make the cut, and they 're left with a lot of excessive ,unwanted pounds of fat to get rid of. M y son's dad and I are diabetic, so that makes him two times more likely to contract diabetes. I think that the young men that try out for pro- football team, should think more about their health instead of the dollar bills they 're trying to get paid. My son health has deteriorated over the years since the weight gain and we all know how hard it is getting to a gym, when you have all the responsibility on you.
My son has large legs and every now and then he has veins to rupture and cause bleeding, that he has to go and get treatment for, the doctor told him need to lose weight, but every time he start trying something happen ; to get him off of it again. When football players gain all this excess weight , it's a detriment to their bodies, whether they play football or not . The wannabe football players are forgotten , but their fight with the excessive weight gain continues. It's sad that they go through all this trouble and don't make the cut; but all that's left is the agony of the defeat and a distant memory of a glamorous football competition after it's all over and done.
