Olympic Athlete Diets

Did you ever think about what Olympic athletes eat on a day to day basis? Watching these super humans in action makes you think about how they achieve these insane bodies.  Elite athletes get mentored by dieticians and nutritionists to achieve optimal health for the sport they perform.

Madison Chock is an ice dancer in the Olympics with her partner Evan Bates.  She gracefully twirls, flips, and twists around on the ice rink.  She has a strong and flexible body that proves how healthy and dedicated she is to the sport. Her diet includes:


Breakfast: Flaxseed oatmeal with chia seeds and raisins

Snack: Fruit, like mandarin oranges, after practice

Lunch: Often leftovers from the night before, such as three-bean chili with pita chips

Snack: Smoothie with spinach, pineapple, protein powder, orange-mango juice, rolled oats and chia seeds before afternoon practice

Dinner: Tacos


Evan’s meal plan includes:


Breakfast: Ezekiel bread with almond butter and jelly and a shake with spinach, blueberries, mango, coconut milk, orange juice and chia seeds

Snack: Smoothie with protein powder, spinach and chia seeds after practice. "As soon as we're off the ice or out of the gym we're replenishing and replacing those burned calories," he says.

Lunch: Often leftovers from the night before, such as three-bean chili with pita chips

Snack: Almonds, dried fruit or applesauce

Dinner: Tacos, or another meal cooked with Chock. "Evan makes great Brussels sprouts," she says.


When you are training for an Olympic sport, you definitely need to fuel yourself with enough nutrients to fuel your body for optimal performance.  These meal plans are great examples of what a balanced diet looks like.
