Phil Mickelson is all in on the paleo diet
The Big Lefty has gone all natural on us in a quest to lose 20 pounds and gain 10 miles per hour on his ball speed. We've seen it all now.
Phil Mickelson didn't win a tournament in the 2013-14 season, and it was the first time that happened since 2003.
As a result, it sounds like he's getting very serious about his fitness this winter.
"Phil’s basically following a paleo diet, which is gluten-free, no sugars and no processed foods," said Mickelson's trainer Sean Cochran.
"I think it’s how we were designed to eat. You have to wonder how a Twinkie can have a five year shelf life. That can’t be good for your performance."
You mean to tell me that Mickelson (this Mickelson!) is going all paleo on us? It's true -- all in the name of gaining ball speed and losing weight. Also (presumably) winning that US Open.
He's also been training and lifting a lot -- apparently over an hour a day. His training regimen reminds me a little of Tom Brady's, actually.
"Everyone has moves they like more than others, but Phil is a very smart guy," said Coachran. "As long as he knows why he’s doing a move, he’ll do it, even if it’s not his favorite."
