CLEVELAND, Ohio -- One of Jimmy Dimora's biggest adjustments as he begins his life of a prisoner will be at meal times.
The former Cuyahoga County commissioner, who weighed a morbidly obese 360 pounds at his 2010 arrest, will be doing his time for racketeering and other corruption-related crimes in a very health-conscious federal prison system.
Prison dining facilities limit obese inmates to low-fat meals with no second helpings, potentially shocking dietary restrictions for a man accustomed to steak as an appetizer and Crown Royal whiskey for a drink.
"It's the equivalent of a grammar school cafeteria menu," said Kevin Tamez, a New Jersey-based consultant who advises prison-bound criminals about life behind bars. "The days of Club Fed are over. They'll put him on a weight-loss program. They're not going to spend extra money just because he wants to eat more."
Dimora is scheduled to be sentenced July 25 and faces up to 25 years in prison. For now, he is held in a low-security facility in Youngstown. But Tamez, a former Drug Enforcement Administration official who served prison time for embezzlement, said a lengthy sentence will likely land Dimora in a slightly more secure facility.
"He'll be in the same neighborhood as Rod Blagojevich," Tamez said, referring to the former Illinois governor recently sentenced to 14 years for corruption, who will spend his time at a low-security prison in Littleton, Colorado.
Dimora will not be placed in the federal camp facility in Morgantown, W. Va., where others convicted as part of the federal corruption investigation have requested they be sent. The camp is limited to inmates serving less than 10 years.
Regardless of where he does his time, the food will be the same. The menus at federal prisons are standardized, with identical entrees and serving portions, said Chris Burke, a spokesman for the Bureau of Prisons.
Breakfasts alternate between bran cereal, oatmeal or grits. Lunches include fresh fruit. The Saturday night entree is typically a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
The menus are part of a plan to whip flabby inmates into shape, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons' "Health Services Admissions and Orientation Handbook."
"People who are overweight are encouraged to reduce the intake of fat and junk food," the pamphlet advises. "They are also encouraged to participate in a sensible exercise program."
The bureau's protocol calls for inmates of Dimora's size and age, 56, to undergo annual nutrition and exercise counseling, followed by a rigorous program of physical training and a low-fat diet heavy on fruits and vegetables.

Hey guys, ya know I have to sleep standing up because if I lay down, I can't get back up. So when some of the inmates here found that out, they snuck up on me in my cell when I was sleeping and they knocked my over. They were yelling something about 'cow tipping' too! Then they rolled me outside in the yard and rolled me down a hill. I was scared that I wouldn't be able to stop! Luckily there was this big, thick brick wall that was able to stop me.

Hey guy, I need for some furnature company to build me a double king size bed for my prison cell. Hey, the cot they gave me crushed under my girth so alls
the jailers did is toss some straw on the floor for me. And they don't have any underpants that fit me so's I have to wrap a queen sized bed sheet around my crotch area. Hey, can I bribe anyone to build me that bed and get me some underpants that fit? And while we're at it, how's that jail cell pizza oven coming?
