The Dale Earnhardt Jr Prune Juice Diet

Filed under: Dale Earnhardt Jr 





For the first 8 days of his diet Dale Earnhardt Jr drank prune juice. Then he switched to carrot juice. For the record he likes the prune juice better.

Earnhardt noticed he was gaining a few pounds last year when he began having trouble getting onto his firesuits. Like most of us he thought the suits were shrinking. “Man, something is wrong with the washer,” Earnhardt said. But the scales were telling a different story.

In the past Earnhardt has been able to eat what he wants without giving much thought to his waistline. But at the end of last season he realized it was time to slim down a bit. During the NASCAR off-season he did just that. “I lost a lot of weight. 15 or 20 pounds. Just trying to do a better job of managing my calories and stuff like that”

“It was pretty tough too. I was surprised I was able to make it,” said Dale .Jr

Besides counting calories and watching what he eats. Junior spent 15 days on a de-tox diet suggested by a friend. No steaks. No burgers. Just veggies, chicken and fish. For 2 days it was nothing but fruit and vegetables. Prune juice to drink for the first 8 days, then carrot juice for the last 7. “It was pretty tough too. I was surprised I was able to make it,” said Dale .Jr

Did you notice Junior was gaining weight? What diet recommendations do you have for him?

  4. I didn’t notice anything but maybe Amy is a good cook and that’s how he gained the weight. My husband swears its my cooking that made him gain weight :) Kind of an odd diet but whatever works or him I guess.

  6. I didn’t notice weight gain either. Glad that diet worked for him. Not a diet I could live on, no Mexican food!

  8. I didn’t notice any weight gain but I noticed his fire suit doesn’t seem as tight now. I like the prune juice but a person might have to stay home for a few days. I don’t think I’ve ever drank carrot juice but I like carrots so it might be okay. I could handle a diet like that if I was alone in the house and getting my own meals. I’m proud of him for taking the initiative and losing the weight.

  12. Haha, i love it. Don’t be shy!

    I did notice that Dale Jr was gaining weight, at the end of last season. Then when the daytona 500 started, I noticed he was slimmer. he does look better, course, he looked good at the end of the season too. He always looks good. But, I can understand him wanting to loose weight.Poor old Ryan Newman needs to loose some too, he could hardly run Sunday when he wrecked. I have a diet, it is called the 4 day wonder diet. You loose 20 lbs in 4 days, but if you are not careful after the 4 days, you will gain it back and then some. Maybe Jr. should stick to the carrot juice diet. You look wonderful Junebug.

  14. I love Jr. regardless, I guess it’s better to be healthier, but to me he looks good either way. Like someone else said maybe Amy is a good cook, along with Jr. liking to cook himself, maybe they were staying home and cooking a lot, that will make you gain weight. I did notice, before the 500, his suits were more baggy than they were at the end of last season. Take care Jr., we love ya, any way you are!!!!!

  22. Sorry I can’t say what say what I am really thinking! But Jr. doesn’t need to worry, he looks good either way. I personally thought the rear view looked better when it was a little snug, but I got no problem with the way he looks either way, his jeans, firesuit, the birthday suit, would be my preference! I can’t even believe I just said that! But God sure blessed the man.
