Quote Of The Day

"If more athletes, coaches, and trainers would incorporate nutrition into their daily routine the way they do physical exercise, they would stand a better chance of becoming champions. Because they don't, the average life expectancy of a professional athlete is fifty-four years of age. Believe it or not, many a wino's life expectancy is longer than that. One day, when researchers stop being so awed by the game of sports, they will see a thing call sports abuse. Then athletes will learn to play sports without abusing their bodies." -Dick Gregory

As the father of a youth football player, I have seen that most coaches never mention youth nutrition before, during or after practice. Kudos to Dick Gregory for promoting nutrition for athletes. I think this is especially important for our young athletes.
