Step 1

Its very important to eat healthy not only in the offseason but more importantly during the season. The key components to establish a diet is determining if your goal is to gain weight or become more lean. Many football players try to put on as much weight as possible, as fast as possible.

Step 2

If you decide you want to gain weight establish eating a lot of carbs, and high protein food sources. A few examples of these foods would be pasta dishes and chicken. Fish is also very important to eat because it is very lean and filled with very healthy and important fats. Keep in mind not to eat fast foods or sweets, these only contain empty calories and are worthless to a diet. Yes they are high in calories but they will not benefit you in any way, shape, or form.

Football players should eat a minimum of three times a day. These should be very large meals, with healthy snacks in between meals. Eat everything healthy is sight.
