    Celtics Jared Sullinger trying to keep weight off Celtics

    Celtics forward Jared Sullinger admits he came to training camp last year overweight, but said he's working to maintain a proper weight, reports ESPN.com. "People say, 'Hire a nutritionist,' but it's not that simple," he said. "What people don't understand is after a game, you get hungry. I stay up late, I'm not falling asleep and I want to eat. The hardest calories to burn off are those late-night calories." Sullinger has been battling weight issues for most of his life, but he hopes to control it moving forward for the betterment of his career. "Do you think I want to be like this? I don't,'' Sullinger said. "My genetics aren't the same as your genetics. Some people can drop 10 pounds in a week. Some can drop 10 pounds in three weeks. My body doesn't work like that. But that doesn't matter now, because I've got to figure out a way to do this. It's going to be hard -- it has always been hard -- but I have to take extra care. At the same time, there are obstacles that still occur."
