Last season with Hartford Athletic, Mac Steeves (Needham, Mass.) noticed how certain teammates seemed to never get injured or sick.
How did guys like midfielder Nicky Downs (Lakeville, Conn.) and forward Jose Angulo do it? The answer, at least in part, was a vegetarian diet.
For a forward who was limited to two goals in 15 appearances due to several muscular injuries, Steeves didn’t need much convincing. He’d modify his diet completely, all to get his body right for the 2020 USL Championship season.
