NRL star Daly Cherry-Evans has stopped eating a family bath from Ben and Jerry’s ice cream every night as he transforms his body for the coming season.
The captain of Manly Sea Eagles, 31, said he fought not only against his sweet tooth, but also against the temptation of a boozy night out with his friends to get himself in top condition for his opening game against the Melbourne Storm next month.
Cherry-Evans said he also made fewer processed foods and chips.
“I would have comfortable ice cream five nights a week after dinner,” he said The Daily Telegraph. “Every color, every taste.”
‘I could polish one of those Ben & Jerry’s collection bins in one go. Most people could, but I am supposed to be a professional athlete; they go with people for a week – I eat one in a night. “

He said the urge to surrender to hot chips and lollipops was harder to avoid because of the diet of his three young children, while cutting back on drinking had been difficult.
“The best way to explain it is when I drink. I don’t drink midweek. But when I drink with the boys, I have a few. To sacrifice it for a while was difficult, “he said.
Cherry-Evans did not shy away from showing off his new torn rig during the event last week.
But he said he reaped the benefits of an improved diet and made his training regime more obligatory.
The skipper of Sea Eagles hopes to lead his side to their first NRL title since 2011 after a sixth finish last year.
He signed a $ 10 million lifetime deal with Manly in 2015 and played his 200th NRL game last year.
