A-Rod Brings His Own Food to Restaurants

He's apparently trying to watch his diet

The Yankee's Alex Rodriguez was reportedly seen bringing his own meal to lunch with girlfriend Torrie Wilson at the Mondrian Hotel in Florida.

The NY Post reports that the slugger is following a high-protein diet for spring training in Florida, so he packs a cooler of food to bring out. He even had the guts to ask the waitress to heat his homemade meal in the kitchen. Bit rude, no?

Wilson, in the meantime, had chips and guac. Poor A-Rod — he can't even eat some guac with his gal.
