Ah, to be young again! Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper put on about 20 pounds during the MLB offseason in the hopes of bulking up and hitting more than 22 home runs like he did last season. And, how did he do it? From the sound of things, by eating as many bowls of cereal as he could at all hours of the day.

"I just eat as much as I can," he told the Washington Post recently. "I don't really care. I don't really have a diet. I'm still going to eat Fruity Pebbles and Captain Crunch and all these cereals at 12 o'clock at night. I don't really care."

Clearly! Enjoy it while you can, young fella. It's not gonna last forever.
