When you’ve played two seasons and your body is starting to feel the effects of the grueling season, you’re at the point where you’re ready to start thinking about what you can do to get better.

If you want to be successful, you have to take action.

The next step is to start taking action.

This week, we take a look at the three steps that will take you from a “healthy” person to a “tougher” one.


Eat more food The good news is that eating more food is not the answer.

If that’s what you’re looking for, you should take it up with your doctor.

A diet that includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and a high-quality protein source can make a huge difference.

If your goal is to improve your physical performance, it’s time to start eating a more varied diet that features less of the high-carb and low-fat varieties.


Get enough sleep If you’re on a long-term diet, the best thing you can try is getting a little extra sleep.

This could be in the form of a little nap or an hour or so of deep sleep, or a nightcap.

Your doctor may suggest a longer nightcap to help with recovery.

The key is to keep getting enough sleep.


Stay on track If you are still on the same schedule as last season, that means it’s safe to say you’re not a healthy person.

You may be wondering what can you do to make your diet more successful.

This week, you’ll learn the best way to get on track to lose weight.
