Fit Fix: Jared Fogle Got Fat Again in Prison, a New Report Says

Today in the rise and fall of a weight-loss icon, and everything else you need to know.

Karma's a Bitch: Jared Fogle is just a few months into his 16-year prison sentence for child pornography, and it seems he's gained back a solid chunk of weight he previously lost on his sub sandwich diet, according to a new report from the tabloid In Touch Weekly. He reportedly packs on the pounds by eating Honey Buns "by the box," plus an (un)healthy helping of Frosted Flakes each morning. The report cites an anonymous prison insider, so treat it with a hefty chunk of rock salt, but it also has this quote from a prison consultant: "Fogle don’t have a chance." [In Touch Weekly]

On the Other Side of the Scale: Eddie Lacy, the Green Bay Packers running back who got called out by his coach for being too hefty, has reportedly a lot of that extra baggage—and he's done it the same way that college bros do it across the nation: P90X. Thanks, Tony Horton! [FOX Sports]

Introducing the "GBOAT": Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is has kicked off "Project Rock," his signature brand partnership with Under Armour, with two of the "Greatest Bags of All Time." (Johnson's words, not ours. But we're inclined to agree with him.) [Men's Fitness]

Smoke-Filled Rooms: The so-called "Big Five" teams in the Barclays Premier League—Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal—have admitted to meeting privately about potential changes to the Champions League, although they denied the possible creation of a "European Super League."

Houston Cuts Arian Foster: The Texans have parted ways with their all-time leader in rushing yards, rushing touchdowns, yards per game, and total scoring, the team announced Thursday. [NFL Insider]

"The Players Are Very Down": Arsenal skipper Arsène Wenger says he's "worried" about his team, which has lost its mental edge and is increasingly finding ways to fail against even inferior opponents—and they face off against heavyweight Tottenham on Saturday. [The Guardian]

Is It Radioactive, Too?: Some energy drinks have been found to trigger an abnormal heart rhythm and a rise in blood pressure, according to a new clinical trial from University of the Pacific and David Grant Medical Center. "While we wait for more data, some consumers should exercise caution and not blindly follow the buzz." [ScienceDaily]

He's Got Some Competition: Tiger Woods was on hand to watch Taylor Crozier, an 11-year-old boy from Texas, hit a hole-in-one on the very first shot at Woods's new golf course, Bluejack National. [Associated Press]

Best Secretary Ever: After months of anticipation, Sony dropped the first trailer for Paul Feig's Ghostbusters reboot starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon as the heroines, plus Chris Hemsworth as their devoted office assistant.
