Ultimate Nutrition Hack - How to Eat Like an Olympian
In this short nine minute presentation, two time Olympian and registered dietitian, Sarah Scherer, answers my question of how to eat like an Olympian.
Watch on, but here is the bottom line, Sarah's four principles of nutrition all of us can follow.
- Whenever you eat a meal or snack, consider including all the macronutrient groups; protein, carbohydrates, and fats.
- Eat whole foods as much as possible; avoid highly processed foods.
- Follow the three rules of portion control for every meal.
- Carbohydrates - the size of your fist
- Protein - the size of your palm
- Fats - the size of your thumb
- Hydrate properly with water - Sarah has some suggestions and here is a deeper dive into optimal hydration strategies.
