Florida State Football Players get “Cheat Day” on Diet
I’ve long been a proponent of giving yourself a little food or beverage treat now and then. It’s the perfect way to reward yourself for a full week of eating healthy and respecting your body.
I got a kick out of hearing ESPN report tonight (during a game) that the Florida State Seminole football team gets a “cheat day” on Mondays. The team nutritionist apparently lets them relax their nutritional standards one day a week, to keep them on course.
The reporter also added that “if the team wins, they get to choose their meal, and their favorite is honey-fried chicken.”
Obviously a southern team ! LOL
I’ve worked with several teams and always look forward to helping them achieve their goals. My 80/20 rule says that 80% of effective athletic training is nutrition: the fuel you put in the body.
If any Noles find this blog, congrats on having an impressive 2010 football season with your new coach!
