Healthy eating for Chivas USA

By Olivia Cervantes

For the past week, Chivas USA and Chivas Guadalajara nutritionist Margarita Posada and her team have been undergoing a set of exams to evaluate the players eating habits and setting season-long health goals. After Thursday’s practice, Posada met with the team coaching staff to present the player results and plans.

Despite the team’s short time in action this year, all players are in great shape for the new 2013 season. Throughout the week, the team has been meeting with the nutritionist to evaluate diet plans and improve their health on a day-to-day basis.

Basic rules set by Posada:

·         Team must have a healthy meal following practice and after each game within 30 minutes of ending

·         Players shouldn’t eat meat or fish before a game (Might make athletes feel heavier; possible effects of seafood)

Despite the good results of all players, Posada and her team will be returning to Los Angeles to follow-up with the suggested eating plans in the near future. Make sure to follow us on Twitter (@cdchivasusa) for any updates.
