As you all know Jets’ head coach Rex Ryan started his coaching career with the Jets in January 2009, when he signed a four year deal worth $11.5 M. He replaced Eric Mangini, who is now head coach of the Cleveland Browns where Rex’s twin brother Rob works as Defensive Coordinator.
Coach Ryan is one of the best coaches in the NFL. His coaching techniques are legendary just because they have been quite successful, but also out of this world which brings us to his out of this world weakness for Mexican food like Tacos, Fajitas, burritos, tapas, quesadillas and mole. This is certainly making me hungry just by talking about it! Which is why Rex after years struggling with his over weight, after trying different diets that ended up as a complete failure and he even once tried a liquid diet. It did work in fact he lost over 20 pounds, but he regained those pounds afterward. His 7,000 calories a day were beyond limits, which is why Rex decided to go under surgery to help him on losing a few pounds off his 370 pound figure and since he was taking this step he took care of a hernia that was bugging him for a while as well.
The outpatient procedure known as gastric bypass or lap band surgery took place on March 13th, at NYU Medical Center, as you know this procedure basically shrinks your stomach size which causes you to lower your appetite. A few weeks after his surgery a new, slimmer Rex Ryan emerged as he proudly told in an interview how he shed over 40 pounds in just three weeks, and he looked healthier, younger and we are definitely so happy for him. Keep on with that weight loss Coach Ryan!!
