Larry Ogunjobi has gone from self-described fat kid to the starting defensive tackle for the Cleveland Browns. His incredible body transformation and journey earned Ogunjobi a feature in the latest issue of Men’s Health magazine.
Ogunjobi weighed 350 pounds as a high school freshman, too big to bend over and tie his shoes. He didn’t play football then, either. The article details how his parents hired a weight loss coach to get him into better health, and how that introduced football instead of video game time.
Now Ogunjobi eschews snacks and has his food pre-packaged and shipped to him from California. He’s at a svelte 300 pounds with just 12 percent body fat, a pretty impressive transformation. His strength and stamina have helped him thrive in his first two seasons with the Browns.
