Andray Blatche: ‘I Eat Late, That’s How I Gain Weight’

Blatche, in what sounds like an interview on Oprah’s couch, explains to the WaPo why he’s so out of shape and has been playing poorly. In short, he can’t stop eating fatty foods: “He does not have the same explosiveness that he had last year,’ Coach Flip Saunders said of Blatche, who is working himself back from breaking his foot last June. ‘As he continues to get in shape that explosiveness will come.’ Since returning a few days into training camp, Blatche has been trying to get his conditioning back to where it was before the injury. He is taking extra sprints after practice, showing up at 10 p.m. to shoot and said he recently decided to remove red meat from his diet. But getting in shape remains a challenge. Blatche admits that he often has a hard time sleeping at night and rarely closes his eyes before 1:30 a.m. If he’s in bed before then, he’ll click the remote and watch some television until he dozes off. But staying up late usually leads to cravings for snacks. ‘I eat late, that’s how I gain weight,’ Blatche said. He once could cover for those poor eating habits through extra training, but they became a problem when the foot injury made him more sedentary. It also made his recovery more difficult.”

    Its about what your eating not when your eating. Its proven eating late is not any more unhealthy then eating early. (Eating late seems worse because your more likely to eat more unhealthy foods late because those are most readily available or easiest to make) Just sayin, this is an excuse for why he doesn’t work hard enough

    Baron Davis must be staying up super-late then…

    Baron Davis isn’t fat. In fact he is reportedly the lowest since the Hornets. But, he is old and has creaky knees. EBled could have the gig by the All-Star break.

  • CAPTAIN HINDSIGHT

    BLATCHE SHOULD NOT HAVE STAYED UP TIL 430 LAST NIGHT SMOKING ‘CIGARS’, THAT IS THE CAUSE OF HIS MUNCHIES. TACO BELL AT 230 AM SHOULD NOT BE A HABIT OF AN NBA PLAYER

  • JTaylor21

    ^Lay off the caps lock bra, it would increase your lifespan. Anyways, come-on blatche stop with the excuses, I eat late too but I’m far from tipping the scales. You’re not fat, your body type is sloppy.

  • rich

    baron just doesnt work on his shot during the season as much as he used to so hes frustrated when hes missing. nd when that happens he goes into a take on the whole team mode. he just needs the right coach and he will have his life back

  • http://www.slamonline.com NickthaQuick

    @ JTaylor21 You shouldn’t be talking someone about laying off the caps lock. You use caps more than anyone else on this site to “MAKE YOUR POINTS” and sound like second coming of BILL WALTON!

  • CAPTAIN HINDSIGHT

    NO I CANT STOP YELLING, THATS THE WAY I TALK!!!

    LOUD NOISES!

  • olddirtyphil

    this is funny

  • Ugh

    @niQ – “Why don’t you act upon it then?” It’s been FIVE MONTHS since he broke his foot, give the guy a break. I wonder if/when you will/did get fat you’ll expect this kind of rapid recovery?

  • crystal campbell
