How Popeyes Chicken Made This LSU WR Gain 30 Pounds

It happens to the best of us...

LSU wide receiver Travis Dural went from 203 pounds to 230, and you won't believe the reason for the weight gain.

Travin Dural’s entree of choice during his convalescence from hamstring surgery last off-season was, you might say, an off menu item as far as the LSU training table was concerned.

Popeyes fried chicken. He found it side-sticking good.

“Yeah, Popeyes was putting a lot of weight on me,” the fifth-year senior wide receiver from Breaux Bridge said this week, skillfully transferring the blame.

“I went home one day, and my mom was like, ‘Man, you look stuffed,’” Dural said. “So, that’s when I knew it was time for change. I was almost 230 pounds in the spring and I played at 203 last year.”

“And Coach Cameron made a couple of jokes about it,” Dural said. “I didn’t like the fullback and tight end jokes, so I knew I had to slim down. I had to stay away from Popeyes. Oh man, I tried to do a no-meat diet, but that failed miserably. That failed miserably in like two days.”

“I stayed away from the Popeyes and the home cooking and started eating salads and started eating a lot less and drinking a lot more water,” he said. “When we started back working out and running after spring practice in April, the weight just disappeared. It was the first time I ever had to worry about nutrition. Before, I was always running and always active, so I just never gained weight.”

Thankfully for Dural, he is now back down to 205 pounds.
