Stewart credits new routine for new look

Monday, Jan. 24, 2011

Was that a slimmer, trimmer Tony Stewart at one of the Monday stops on the NASCAR Sprint Media Tour hosted by Charlotte Motor Speedway?

Yes, it was.

Stewart has shed a significant amount of weight as the 2011 season is set to begin. He said there was no drastic diet, just a change in his daily routine.

“I was always one of those guys who ate two big meals a day. Now, I’m eating more frequent and actually eating breakfast. Normally, I sleep through breakfast,” Stewart said.

“I’m eating about five times a day. It sounds like you're eating more, but you're not. It's about doing your daily routine different."
