The All-Pro Diet: Lose Fat, Build Muscle, and Live Like a Champion

by Tony Gonzalez and Mitzi Dulan, RD

In 2004, Tony Gonzalez set the record with 102 catches to become the first tight end since 1986 to lead the NFL in receptions. Even with this amazing achievement under his belt, however, Tony was worried, as the typical pro-football player's lifespan is estimated to be 15 years shorter than the average American's. What started as Tony's search for a better way to eat became a team effort when he began working closely with Mitzi Dulan, RD, nutritionist for the Chiefs and the Kansas City Royals baseball team. When the program Mitzi and Tony devised produced dramatic results, they decided that the public could benefit from their training and experience in diet and fitness.

The All Pro Diet provides a fascinating glimpse inside pro football. But this book is for everyone - the high-level athlete, the senior citizen, the couch potato, the Little Leaguer, the mom struggling to lose weight after childbirth. The principles are universal and effective. Only Tony and Mitzi can put it all together to give people off the field the kind of results this superstar pro has experienced on the field.
