Zoom World Cup diet

"When Jurgen Klinsmann was hired to

revamp U.S. soccer from soup to nuts

in 2011, the new coach’s old-school,

you-are-what-you-eat approach to

nutrition fell on deaf ears at first.

“Early on, all I heard was blah-blahblah,”

says striker Jozy Altidore. “Now

I know how you eat plays a huge part

in how you perform.” So while Altidore

is hoping to feast on goals at the

World Cup, team nutritionist Danielle

LaFata—who’ll lay out this spread

after each of the U.S. team’s three

first-round games—could be just as

important to the Yanks’ chances of

surviving the Group of Death in Brazil." Photo by Levi Brown.
