The Redskins got some very positive news on several injured players, but the organization was also trying to cope with the loss of another member of the football family, nutritionist Ann Litt, who died suddenly this week.


The Redskins are mourning the loss of another member of the organization, as team nutritionist Ann Litt passed away suddenly two months after former linebacker Kevin Mitchell died in his sleep. Litt, 54, entered the hospital recently with a blockage in her intestine and ended up suffering a rupture in her bowel that took her life, Bubba Tyer said.

Litt was a welcome figure around Redskins Park, usually at the facility midweek during the season to schedule appointments with players to review their diet, calorie intake and help them with their nutrition. Litt spent 30 years as a nutritionist and was also a published author.

Bubba said the loss was difficult to get over.

"We love her around here," Tyer said, "and a testament to her work here came when we had a meeting recently and the players all talked about how they need to eat more healthy and don't need as much fat in their diets. It was great, and it's all her work the last few years and we're going to miss her."


I find it odd that she died of a digestive related issue. It reminds me of that guy who wrote the book on running, then died, while running. :shake:

I wonder what would happen if someone "wrote the book" on dying.

If my logic is correct, my guess is that he would start running around at the funeral.

Ruptured bowel? She probably could have used more fiber in her diet, or even a thing of Metamucil or two here and there.
