How to Eat Like an Athlete
Pages in this Story:
When you're an Olympic hopeful, even preparing a meal can be an exercise in doing your personal best. "When I cook, I want it to be gourmet," says Rachel Wacholder-Scott, 33, who makes healthy homemade dinners -- and a sinkful of dirty dishes -- most weeknights. "Sean won't let me clean up," she says of her husband. "He always tackles my mess and never complains." That's only fair, though, since he's partly to blame for her obsession. "Sean's a total health nut. He taught me that what I eat can have a big impact on how I feel and how much energy I have," Rachel says. The couple, who live in Redondo Beach, California, worked with a nutritionist for a few months last year to learn how to eat for energy. The advice they follow now includes simple rules: Consume lean protein at every meal, choose healthier fats, such as olive oil and nuts, and eat fresh foods as often as possible.
