No football team can succeed if it refuses to ever give the ball away. Sometimes we have to punt. And I refuse to accept any game plan that won’t let me eat cake and ice cream on my birthday. On Thanksgiving Day, on my birthday, sometimes while on vacation, I punt. In the Football Diet, punting means I eat and drink whatever I want, as much as I want, and I don’t exercise unless I feel like it.
Here are the keys to punting in the Football Diet:
- You have to plan it in advance (otherwise it’s a fumble)
- It lasts only one day. Football teams don’t punt 2 plays in a row, and I don’t pig out 2 days in a row.
- After punting, go right back to offense or defense the next day.
