Wade Phillips Lost 40 Lbs on Nutrisystem?
Am I the only person that noticed Al Michaels say that Dallas Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips is “looking svelte” because he was on Nutrisystem and lost 40 lbs. This was during NBC’s Sunday night football telecast of the 2010 NFL Hall of Fame football game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Cincinnati Bengals. The minute he said that, they cut to a shot of Phillips looking slimmer. They also joked about him saying that he was hoping to keep off at least 8 to 10 lbs of it during the season.
I don’t know if this was some clever way of getting the word out by Nutrisystem or if it was just some thing that happened. I know that commentators often get tidbits and facts about players and coaches that they then use during slow action of a game, so maybe that was the case here. I dunno…
I kind of feel honored to be on Nutrisystem, having lost 5 lbs so far since I’ve been on it, I feel as if I am in great company. Nutrisystem has definitely done a great job of marketing to the male demographic by getting well-known sports (primarily NFL) players to be their spokesman. It sure calls my attention whenever I see Dan Marino, Curt Menefee or the all mighty, incomparable Chris Berman telling me how much weight they’ve lost while on Nutrisystem. Here’s a list of celebrities that have lost weight with Nutrisystem.
One thing I would like to know is: How long was Wade Phillips on Nutrisystem? What plan was he on? What was his favorite meal? Did he do any exercise? What are his thoughts about “the system”?
Maybe one day we’ll find out…
