Fueling bodies with proper nutrition can only lead to success, an equation more and more players have recognized. Some, like the Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez, are particularly meticulous, tracking fat, calories and carbohydrates while planning ahead on road trips in order to find smart restaurants to dine at.
“Alex is unbelievable. Just his diet,” Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte said. “He just doesn’t put anything bad in his mouth, and it’s amazing. But look at the way he looks, and that’s why. There’s no doubt that he watches extremely closely what he eats, and he’s very disciplined. And that’s the biggest thing, is a disciplined person.”
“With the money that you make, you just owe it to everybody — not only to yourself, but to your team and to your organization — to take care of yourself,” Pettitte said. “And if you’re carrying around more weight than you should, you’re probably going to have a hard time.”
