Great article about Josh Smith at Yahoo in the basketball section:
UCLA’s roster lists Smith at 305 pounds, and no one at UCLA will say whether that measurement was recorded before Smith had reached the peak of his weight loss.
Whatever the case, the noticeably-leaner Smith has an extra bounce in his step. It certainly didn’t come easily.
UCLA’s dietician devised a meal schedule that Smith said he adhered to for the entire summer. Dinner in the Bruins dining hall often consisted of two chicken sandwiches along with rice and fruit. If Smith was still hungry, he ate additional apples, oranges and bananas “instead of sucking down extra cheeseburgers.” Much like that pizza from B.J. ‘s, Smith said those kinds of foods hardly appeal to him anymore.
“He’s dedicated himself,” Howland said. “He’s changed his lifestyle.”
He's going to be difference maker this season. With the addition of Tyler Lamb and Lazeric Jones UCLA is going to roll over the Pac-10. I hope they will make everyone forget what happen last year. This season should be a great one. UCLA needs to play like champions. UCLA is the greatest college program in the country. They need to never forget that.
