Sorry, burgers and pizza, you don't have any place in Alex Bregman's new non-"dad bod" diet
When you're blessed with youth, it sometimes feels as if you can eat whatever you want, with little to no consequence. Late night pizza or fast food drive-thru? Perfectly OK. Ah, to be young ...

MLB.com's Brian McTaggart caught up with Bregman at the Astros' Spring Training facility on Monday for a recap of his offseason, his thoughts on Houston's World Series parade and reconnecting with his teammates after a few months away. And, as Bregman explains, he's forgone his previous diet filled with burgers, pizza and sugary soda in favor of more fish ... and fires off an excellent quote to drive the point home:
Bregman said he changed his diet this winter: more salmon and fish, less burgers and pizza. "Dad bods are in but I don't know how many homers they got." pic.twitter.com/JUIkk5z3Zy— Brian McTaggart (@brianmctaggart) February 19, 2018
The Astros' official slogan for 2018 is #NeverSettle, and Bregman sure seems to be taking that to heart.
