Ever wonder what it's like to eat like a triathlete? Three sports in one means you can eat whatever you want, right? Ironman Kona was yesterday, and when you think about the Ironman you think about the hours and hours of hard work these athletes have put towards achieving their goals. I however, tend to think about the thousands among thousands of calories that these athletes consume each week to support their lifestyle and optimize performance and recovery. Eating enough is crucial to maintaining an appropriate weight and ensuring adequate energy to support the training, but what goes into those calories can often determine the ultimate success of the athlete.
The November issue of Triathlete Magazine features this article highlighting the nutritional approaches of five different triathletes and dietitians and of course I just HAD to share!
Kristen Chang is Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN), Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD) and triathlete residing in southwest Virginia with her husband and dogs.
