• Steve Austin Puts The Rumors To Rest – Hasn’t Quit Alcohol, Would Hate To Go Down That Road
WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin recently revealed on his podcast that he has quit alcohol as he’s on a diet to get in a better shape.
Austin noted that the diet and DDP Yoga are working great for him and that he can feel his strength going up.
Below is what Austin said:
“My eating program is going fantastic. I’m sticking to my exact macros. I’ve had zero alcohol for right at 14 days now. Pounds are coming off. My strength is going up. Jesus Christ, I’m getting as strong as a goddamn horse over here.
No alcohol and when you hit the weights on a consistent basis and eat what you’re supposed to, it is amazing the difference that you can make or I’m making.
I’m also doing my DDP Yoga sh*t. Hell, I’m going to jump up here and do the splits like a goddang cheerleader in a minute! I’m flexible as a motherf**ker.
Dallas’ program works like a b*tch. I appreciate it, Dallas. I appreciate it, man. That’s a bada$$ program. I’m sticking to it!”
This began rumors that Austin has quit alcohol forever, but that’s not the case.
Austin has now put the rumors to rest and revealed that he only quit drinking temporarily as a part of his diet to lose weight.
Below is what Austin said during a recent edition of his podcast:
“To answer the question, to put all of the rumors to rest, and I’d hate to even go down this road. Everybody started spreading the word, my phone started ringing off the hook, people were texting me, people were emailing me or sending me direct messages. Some people were flat-out upset and heartbroken that I had stopped drinking beer. I had many people who are recovering addicts saying ‘hey man, congratulations on your newfound sobriety.
To those people, I say thank you so much for caring about me, but that was a rumor. I’m fine, I’m on a diet. That’s why I quit. When you try to drop some pounds, you get down to your desired weight, you don’t level off on the calories and throw some alcohol back in there and go hog wild, but that’s what we did every year down there in South Texas, Kristin.
Long story short, end of story, I quit drinking temporarily to reach a goal weight. I did not quit drinking temporarily to improve my health or because I was in harm’s way.”
