Thanks to a streamlined physique, Javi Gomez de Liaño was able to do a lot of damage in University of the Philippines' (UP) favor when the Fighting Maroons hammered out a victory over Far Eastern University on Wednesday.

From a bulky 225 pounds, Gomez de Liaño brought his weight down to 190, and this enabled him to move more and score more, 22 points in fact.

"It was really a goal for me to be more fit. In January or February, I noticed kasi talaga na I was really overweight and that really affected my game," Gomez de Liaño said in a report posted on ABS-CBN Sports

"I was really slow. I wasn't making my shots. That's why I had to discipline myself, have a good diet, eat healthy, and of course, work out."

With the extra pounds shed off, he felt leaner and meaner.
"Yes, I feel quicker tuloy," said Gomez de Liaño, adding he wants to continue keeping tabs on his weight.

"I'm still on a diet right now actually because I feel I can do a lot more pa."
