Patrick Mahomes’ Dad Bod Diet: The Chiefs quarterback loves cheat meals from Chick-Fil-A or Chipotle and can take TEN ice creams a night (says Brittany)…but which late-night snack is his treat guilty ?

Patrick Mahomes’ arrival at the Kansas City Chiefs headquarters for OTAs this week left fans wondering if he was healthy enough to lead the team to a third straight Super Bowl victory.

The quarterback once again found himself the butt of many jokes on social media over a video of him returning to practice with a slightly stockier frame after a well-deserved three months off.

Mahomes, 28, defended his physique earlier this year after a photo of him shirtless following their AFC Championship victory over the Baltimore Ravens went viral in January.

He told TIME: “I definitely have a bit of my dad’s body. I will also say that I have a great body for a quarterback. You have to have some padding in there to take the hits we take.

Mahomes has every right to claim he has the perfect physique for a quarterback after leading the Chiefs to three Super Bowl victories and he’s working hard to stay in shape for the NFL.

He revealed in a 2018 interview with Men’s Journal that he eats four to five meals a day and often has two dinners so he doesn’t eat too much at once.

Mahomes underwent a fitness overhaul in the summer of 2020, getting tested for allergies so he could calibrate his diet – which revealed he is allergic to “most nuts” and grass – and hired a personal chef, he told Men’s Health in 2021.

However, his self-proclaimed “dad body” could be the result of a few guilty pleasures.

The quarterback admitted he occasionally succumbs to a cheat meal with Mahomes enjoying chicken biscuits from Chick-Fil-A and burrito bowls from Chipotle, which were reportedly his most ordered items in 2019 and 2018 on Postmates.

He is also known for ordering prime rib, barbecue, and fries from local Kansas City establishments.

And it doesn’t stop there. Mahomes also admitted to being a “heavy snacker,” consuming chips and candy, including Doritos, Jolly Rancher Gummies or Starbursts, as late-night snacks.

“I have to keep my body in shape, so no one tells my coach, or the Chiefs, but I’m a big snack,” he told GQ Sports in 2023.

Signalman’s late-night snacks were a source of teasing from his wife, Brittany.

Brittany, a former professional footballer, mocked her husband earlier this year when she revealed he ate 10 mini ice cream cones a night.

“Anyone else eats 10 a night… because he’s the one who does it. Not me,” Brittany posted on Instagram in March with an arrow pointing at Mahomes and a laughing emoji.

Mahomes’ taste for ice cream also emerged during an October episode of the “New Heights” podcast, when teammate Travis Kelce, who has defended his own “dad body,” and older brother Jason Kelce discussed the quarterback’s love of Dippin’ Dots. .

“There’s something weird about Dippin’ Dots is that it’s only in amusement parks,” Jason Kelce said. “Like, where did you see Dippin’ Dots?” I mean, I guess sporting events, I’ve seen Dippin’ Dots.’

“I saw them in Pat Mahomes’ garage,” Travis replied. “He’s got a freezer of Dippin’ Dots.”

Brittany previously exposed her guilty pleasure by sharing that there is a specific snack that Mahomes snacks on. In an Instagram Q&A story, a user asked Brittany what Patrick’s “funny habit” was. To which she replied, “Eat Doritos every night in bed,” with a laughing emoji.

“I always take…a purple bag of Doritos, which I just put in. I was a Cool Ranch guy, but now I’m on the purple bag,” Mahomes told GQ Sports.

Mahomes also seems to have a penchant for fine dining. In February, he led his friend’s 20-person bachelor party at Resorts World’s Carversteak, where they dined in the Whiskey Room, the luxury steakhouse’s private dining space, according to the Las Vegas Review -Newspaper.

But despite the physical degradation suffered throughout the offseason, Mahomes did not rest on his laurels.

After winning the Lombardi Trophy in February, Mahomes spent the offseason training with longtime coach Bobby Stroupe, focusing on “pattern stability,” “force absorption” and “force absorption.” transmission of force.

Stroupe shared an Instagram Reel in March showing the Chiefs star in action, performing fast-paced, high-intensity drills that test his strength, speed, power, responsiveness and control.

The three-time Super Bowl winner also maintains a stricter diet throughout the season to stay in shape to win the championship.

Kansas City Chiefs dietitian Leslie Bonci revealed in an interview with Bet Kansas that during a week of workouts and gym sessions, the Super Bowl champions continue to eat protein as well as salads and carbohydrates.

“Our team normally uses fish and chicken for meals during the week,” Bonci continued. “Red meat accounts for a third but it’s not just proteins, there are Caesar salads, potatoes are important and also rice and pasta.

“Salmon, swordfish, tuna, catfish and cod are types of fish that are more textured than spongy fish. Seafood is also very present, with shrimp and crab fritters. We try to be careful about food waste, although we don’t want to throw away cans and cans.

The nutritionist revealed that Kansas City stars typically demand breakfast foods, such as French toast, waffles and pancakes, before a game, even if they play in the evening.

A lot of guys at Chiefs like fish,” she said. “Barbecue food is up to par with burnt ends like brisket and charred end as well as ribs, but it’s a mid-week meal, not game day.

“I wouldn’t say it’s a superstition, but players are creatures of habit and some like breakfast foods, even if it’s on a game night, because it’s their comfort food.

“They want an egg sandwich, pancakes, a waffle or French toast. Few players eat a huge amount of food before a match.

“We have steaks, pasta, chicken and sandwiches as well as French toast and we have this abundance of food so players can come in and think ‘what should I eat.’ What we don’t want is t’s players turning around and missing an opportunity to refuel, so kudos to our executive chefs.

Breakfast options, which are eaten before 8:30 a.m., include hot or cold cereals, eggs, omelets, sandwiches, potatoes or smoothies. Lunch is eaten between 12 p.m. and 1 p.m., while post-workout options are also available.

Two evenings a week, Chiefs players also have the option of having a dinner prepared by Bonci and Co, which has many benefits for them and the team.

“There are a lot of options, from filet to roasted salmon to grilled chicken. If they want pizza, there’s a pizza oven,” Bonci said. “They have a choice, so they don’t have to go out and eat, that way we know what they’re eating and what’s better for us.”
