Enes Kanter Lost 51 Pounds in the Offseason

Utah Jazz big man Enes Kanter is a new person coming into his second NBA season — almost quite literally. Kanter told the media in Utah that he shed 51 pounds during the summer. Per the Deseret News: “Kanter came to Salt Lake weighing 51 pounds less than he did after packing on about 20 postseason pounds during a trip home that apparently included way too much Turkish delight. When he wasn’t snapping shots of his frivolous free time, the 6-foot-11 big spent massive amounts of time pumping iron, exercising and training on the court for his sophomore season. That hard work resulted in him reporting to camp weighing in at a svelte-but-sculpted 242 pounds. ‘He lost a lot of weight,’ Jazz forward Paul Millsap noticed. ‘He’s a lot more mobile. He can get down the court better.’ The second-year pro credited ‘The Enes Kanter Diet’ for helping him shed a whopping 51 pounds in two months. The simple regiment: dressing-free salads, seafood and a smorgasbord of tweets. A sample day in the eating life of chunkier Kanter: a six-egg omelet, seven or eight pancakes with strawberries and whipped cream and a burrito for breakfast; chicken alfredo pasta, a burger and an appetizer for lunch; and a big meal including another burger and dessert for dinner. ‘Now, I play faster, more explosive,’ Kanter said.”

    Great. But, did he gain 15lbs of muscle?

  • Yusaf

    I have very high hope for Enes. He has potentially unlimited. If one loses a great deal of weight that translate to speed with quickness. His vertical will improve undoubtedly.

    That’s impressive still, 51 pounds! People should tryout his diet. On the other hand, here I am trying to put on weight lol.

    im pretty sure anybody can loose that amount of weight if you stop the Big Baby diet that he used to be on

    Hotdogs and beer homie. I tacked on 30 pounds my sophomore year. Took me a summer of farm work to lose most of it. Never got quite right again. But it is a weight gain secret.
