...But I Still Didn’t Know What to Eat or How to Eat!
So, I did what most do. I went online and found some articles and began to make changes here and there. There was SO much information out there though. Most of it was very opinionated, or quick fix diets, or take a bunch of supplements.
So, while I tried to make changes, I fell back into old habits as it was easy. Once I got to a higher level of baseball, I realized how serious everyone was at taking care of their bodies. We were lucky, we had a team nutritionist. Most do not. Our nutrition coach helped changed my eating habits, and begin to change my performance and recovery. I went from a bad body composition to a stronger and less injury-prone player.
Once I got done playing, I got into baseball coaching and strength training. I began to see the same problems I faced as a growing athlete. Players knew that nutrition mattered, yet had no idea what to do when it came to nutrition.
I wanted to make a difference and help baseball players navigate their nutrition. The Champion Baseball Nutrition for Performance Program helps address the problems we've seen in many baseball athletes. Nutrition is often overlooked, and not on purpose, it's just not always convenient to eat a well-balanced healthy diet.
