Health with Jim Harbaugh: A steak a day keeps the doctor away

Early Monday afternoon, Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh revealed to the public his homemade remedy for curing pneumonia. Wolverines tight end Henry Poggi came down with "a bit of pneumonia" over the weekend and Harbaugh prescribed push-ups and whole milk.

Later Monday night, Harbaugh put up on his nutritionist hat again while taping his weekly radio show. The coach laid out his unique recipe for "natural steroids" to a captivated audience.

"I truly believe the No. 1 natural steroid is sleep and the No. 2 natural steroid is milk, whole milk," Harbaugh said. "Three would be water. Four would be steak."

All four are apparently a part of the coach's daily diet.

"I take a vitamin every day," he said. "It's called a steak."

Harbaugh, as he often does, borrowed that last line from a movie. That particular quote comes from Robert Duvall's character in "Kicking and Screaming" -- the Will Ferrell version, not the 1995 story of recent college grads dealing with real life.

So remember, Michigan fans, as cold season approaches be sure to get plenty of sleep and start every morning with your daily dose of Vitamin Steak.
