Olympians stay in shape for a living. Find out what they’re doing (and you’re not.)
5. Stay Consistent
Make sure you stick to your nutrition and fitness plans. For non-Olympians, a lousy fitness session will not impact the overall goal. However, Olympians can’t afford a bad day. As for nutrition, make sure you are eating protein-packed meals at least 5 days of the week. Dedication counts.
4. Make Meal Prep Interesting
There’s a lot of healthy foods out there. Include lean meat (or another protein), some healthy carbs, and some veggies. Experiment with a variety of ingredients. When prepping meals, where you’ll be eating. Do you have access to a refrigerator, stove, or microwave? Plan your meals accordingly.
3. Set Realistic Goals
Olympians are full-time athletes whose goals (long and short-term) are carefully calculated. Do yourself a favor and take a few hours on your next day off and set realistic goals. Research what you need to do to really accomplish what you want.
2. Develop Fortitude
It’s true that things that are worth achieving are rarely easy. Your diet and exercise regimen may not be perfect, but it’s always better to try.
1.Avoid Fad Diets
Slow and steady wins the race. There are no shortcuts. Choosing different ways to starve yourself or cutting out a vital nutrient will just make you binge later.
