The true breakfast of champions.

Happy Olympics Fit U! Ever wondered what and how much Olympians eat to fuel their training?

With all the work they’re putting in, you can bet they’re feeding themselves ample calories to get the job done. Let’s get one thing straight, Michael Phelps can eat 10k calories a day, you should proooobably not be doin that (unless you too, just won 25 Gold Olympic medals). But just because you’re not eating as many calories as the pros, doesn’t mean you can’t be inspired by them. Channel your inner Olympian and complete this track workout. Then, refuel with one of the delicious meals below.   

Michael Phelps

Phelps swims laps on laps on laps. He’s also 6’4″. He eats A LOT. You can eat like Phelps (minus a few thousand calories).

Andy Murray

Andy’s running cross court, hittin ballz, and eating to fuel each swing. You’ll LOVE these Andy inspired meals 😉

Aly Raisman

At 5’2″, 115 lbs, Aly doesn’t need as much food as her fellow Olympians. Eating these toasts will make you an all-star gymnast, we swear. 


Post-workout breakfast today was 2 slices of @foodforlifebaking 7 Sprouted Grains bread topped with @wild_friends Cinnamon Raisin Peanut Butter, @hodgsonmill Flax Chia Blend, delicious warm berries (just microwave, mash, then microwave again! So yummy!), banana coins, and then an extra drizzle of peanut butter because you can really never have too much in my book 🙈 I made this colorful plate to try to brighten up this gloomy, rainy day and right when I went outside to eat, the sun came out ☀️☀️☀️ Workout this morning was a 20 minute bike HIIT + about 40 minutes of ab work with as little rest as possible! Hopefully they’ll start coming around to say hi if I keep giving them attention 💪🏻 if the rain holds out, I plan to go for a long walk with the 🐶 Wishing you the best Thursday #fitfam 😸 #happyandhealthy #health #healthy #healthyfood #healthychoices #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #healthylife #healthybreakfast #healthyfoodshare #healthyeats #healthyeating #workout #postworkout #cleaneats #cleaneating #foodie #foodisfuel #eeeeeats #eatclean #eathealthy #eatinghealthy #eattherainbow #eattogrow #eatrealfood #eatright #strongnotskinny #fit #fitness
