"I get up at 5 a.m. and have a chocolate MILO shake -- it's like Ovaltine -- then after my 6 a.m. swim workout I have a proper breakfast: a bowl of Kashi, a banana, and a cup of coffee. About midmorning, I have a kefer drinkable yogurt -- they have good probiotics in them. For lunch I have a wrap or sandwich, like a whole wheat tortilla with light cream cheese, turkey, hot sauce, and red bell peppers. I snack on fresh fruit, almonds, and cashews all afternoon. For dinner, I like some sort of lean meat -- chicken breast or pork tenderloin -- and a lot of fresh greens."
