Will Power


In case you sometimes feel sorry for yourself like I do that I’ve never been able to eat everything in sight …

Plagued by weight problems his entire career, famous and legendary jockey Lafitt Pincay tried all kinds of diets, pills, sweat box, etc. but eventually found a regimen that works. His diet was just 850 calories a day. Fruit for breakfast, protein before going to the track, and a regular dinner at night. 350 of the calories are for dinner alone. He went to the gym daily to workout on the Stairmaster or treadmill plus lots of stretching exercises.

One famous story of his willpower is when trainer D. Wayne Lukas saw him eat a single peanut on a cross-country flight. One half at the beginning of the flight and the other half at the end. Pincay says he has done that many times as well as scraping all the salt off a cracker before eating it.
