Olympic athletes and nutrition

The Olympic Eating Plan

Olympians aren’t normal people. Their athleticism and conditioning level are almost beyond belief. Their work ethic and will to succeed are even rarer. Not many people in this world have the gumption to work nearly every day for most of their lives to achieve a goal which may only last for minutes at one time in their lives. That’s the life Olympians choose, with the uncertainty that they’ll ever get more than one shot at the Olympics.

For this WeightWatchers.com story, I looked at the strict nutrition plans Olympians must adhere to if they wish to maximize their athletic ability. As with any great athlete, the mental discipline and desire to be the best ranks just as high. So the athletes must follow a year-round nutrition regimen, which they might not always enjoy but ultimately understand that it helps them achieve their goals. And I know that I’ll be keeping my eye specifically on Madeleine Williams to see how she performs for her country. I can’t wait for the Olympics to start this weekend.
