Sports Dietician Nancy Clark Teaches Proper Eating Habits to Celtics and Red Sox If you’ve ever seen what Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps eats, you realize the importance of an athlete’s diet.

Most people shudder when they hear the word calorie, and view food as the enemy. Sports dietician, Nancy Clark, is setting out to quash that misconception. She preaches the importance of a healthy diet and serves as an official dietician for Boston’s top athletes.

After starting her Boston career advising the diet of Celtics’ legend Larry Bird, Clark was then sought out by the Red Sox. She helped the players find healthy options after the game, rather than choosing fast food and other unhealthy choices that are easily available late at night.

Her advice isn’t just helpful for athletes, anyone looking to live a healthier lifestyle can learn a thing or two from Clark. Check out the video from Shining City below to see for yourself.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
