Time to get into shape

First, the former first rounder attacked his diet going out shopping for lots of healthy food. Schwarber even got himself a personal chef to use as the spring season started so he could maintain his healthy food lifestyle.

According to ESPN, he went from Skyline Chili to chicken-based meals. Adding more protein to his diet is key as he worked on power and speed. Eggs for breakfast, chicken for lunch and fish for dinner.

Schwarber made plays this spring with his feet and stealing bases!  Schwarber put to bed all the doubt that he has lost power but has certainly made folks take notice of his speed in left field. An Opening Day home run (and another since then) has further proved the point to critics.
