Dmitri Young Newsbeat

Dmitri Young explains his amazing weight loss

through aides.

“I’m down to 205 pounds, and I did it the right way,” Young told Charlie Slowes on 106.7 The Fan, before Friday’s game. “I went to a doctor, a preventative doctor, and he told me ‘You want to get off the medicine, lose three inches.’ I’m like, forget that, let’s lose six. And then I started doing a lot of cardio, the weight started peeling off, and at that point I started working out. And I’m to this size right now, and very very healthy….

“I still have to take a shot of NovoLog before each meal, but other than that I’m golden,” said Young, who has battled Type 2 diabetes for years. “I feel better, look better. I didn’t look like this when I played.”

It’s true. He didn’t. In the spring of 2008, in fact, Young weighed-in at around 291 pounds. That’s 85 pounds of difference, although it sure appears to be even more dramatic. This is what he looked like in 2011, when he was already down 70 pounds.
