Eat Like an Olympian

Uncategorized Jul 14, 2019

I remember back in 2008 during the summer Olympics in Beijing when the media reported that Michael Phelps was eating 12,000 calories a day.

Something tells me this was a bit embellished to an extent. 

Be that as it may, a review of what Olympians eat reveals:

- The wide variation in intake- from as little as 1300 for a high jumper to 7,000 for a cross-country skier

- Chloe Kim eats churros and ice cream and gets impressive results!

- The rise of "beet juice" and other "clean" stuff

- The standard fare they were eating: animal protein, quinoa, potatoes, vegetables. Standard, boring, but functional.

What are the principles?

- Eat standard, plain stuff most of the time with room for flexibility 

- Eat churros and ice cream some of the time

- Eat the same quality but not the same quantity. Someone who eats like an Olympian but isn't an Olympian is a binge eater.

- Perfect everything else in your life

- Treat life like a game

- You don't need to drink beet juice.
