Pitcher tracks data to plan diet, workout regimen, sleep

BEST SHAPE OF HIS LIFE!

Boyd underwent DNA tests to determine what foods his body reacts to better and what health conditions he might be predisposed to genetically. He had his heart rate and other vitals tracked to determine workout recovery and optimal sleeping patterns.

Some changes were obvious, others more individualized. With help from McKee, Boyd adjusted his diet to take in more monounsaturated fats found in olive oil, avocados, nuts and grass-fed beef. He cut out whole grains and pasta and added more vegetables. He added more fish to his diet. He also tracked when and where he ate his meals.

The resulting changes helped Boyd drop 15 pounds and improve his body-fat percentage.

“I wasn’t planning on losing weight. I felt good where I was,” Boyd said. “But once I started eating the way I did, it just kind of happened. I don’t see it, but everyone says you can see it. That wasn’t the goal, but it was kind of a byproduct. …

“I feel better. I have more energy. I’m sleeping better.”
