Robert Griffin III

Screw My Diet, I'M RICH!

EXCLUSIVE

0427-rg3-pizza-run-robert-griffin
He's one the most elite athletes in the world ... his body is a friggin' temple ... and that's why we're kinda shocked by what Robert Griffin III had for breakfast AND lunch yesterday ... hours before the draft.

We ran into RG3 on the streets of NYC, just a short time before he was drafted 2nd overall by the Washington Redskins ... and after he told us about his deliciously unhealthy breakfast ... dude carried a pizza box back to his hotel room.

And THAT is how you win over the Hogettes ... (also, winning doesn't hurt).

update_bar
8:02 AM PST -- Our sources at Red Stone Pizza in Manhattan tells us they "believe" RG3 ordered a pepperoni pizza ... PEPPERONI!!!

To celebrate, he can have what he wants.
He's earned it.
Despite what some idiots are saying, I don't think this guy's gonna blow it. He graduated from Baylor in three years with a degree in political science and a 3.67 GPA, while appearing on the Dean's List twice, and is currently studying for a Masters in Communication.

Well if you are going to eat pizza, better to do it earlier in the day...

He's fit and active, I think he can handle splurging on a large (normal) breakfast of eggs, bacon and waffles. And what's so unhealthy about a pizza? Not like he had big bag of McDonalds.

When you do instense work outs for 6-8hrs a day it doesn't hurt to splurge every once in a while...Now if he was on that fake ass I'm going to starve myself for two weeks/model diet then No you can't eat that.

a medium cheese pizza with one veggie topping is MUCH healthier than going to Starbucks and having a latte and muffin... Plus...dudes matabolism will convert that into a log that would clog any jetflush hotel crapper in less than 4 hours!

That would be "PEPPERONI," not peperoni. Geez, TMZ, get a proofreader/someone who can spell. I find at least 2 spelling errors every day on your site. I'd love a proofreading job.

Good lord, you guys are the food police now? He's a grown man who exercises for a living, he can eat what he wants. Ugh, i'm starting to feel sick when I read this site. And it's pepperoni. You misspelled it twice. How does that make it through editing?

Quit yer ragging on pizza. It contains all of the food groups in the pyramid. What a weak frigging moment for journalism.

Wow, the man ate a pizza. Next thing you know, he may be caught scarfing down a couple of fig newtons and his whole career will go into a tailspin.

Well trained athletes allow themselves to splurge every so often. The man can't be expected to live on protein shakes and veggie burgers. Geeeez.

Really? Athletes don't eat healthy every day of their lives. He's in New York he probably just wanted to enjoy some New York pizza. If you work out like he does the occasional pizza won't hurt any.
