Athletes should remember to keep in mind that eating healthy will make the difference when it comes to their performance. Football players in general should try to stay as healthy as possible and keep excess weight off. They need to keep their hearts healthy because statistics have shown that football players do not typically live as long as other athletes and they typically die from some kind of heart problem. Football players need to remember that they are not gods and that steroids (and other types of ergogenics along that line) hurt them in the long run.
