Training Tips From Elite Athletes, Part 2

I tell my athlete clients all the time: you need to eat like an athlete! I stress getting the nutrition you need mainly from food and not supplements!



All-American Ohio State linebacker, James Laurinaitis eats to fuel his body for peak performance. In the November 2007 issue of Men's Fitness magazine, Laurinaitis talks about how he eats on a daily basis. Here are some of the foods that he regularly eats:

oatmeal
Wheaties
red berries
chicken
eggs
veggies
bananas
grapes
strawberries
yogurt
cottage cheese

Sounds pretty healthy to me! And, at 6'3", 244 pounds, I'm sure he eats plenty and often! He's a top-flight performer and will play on Sundays next year.

  1. Nice article Mark. This can be said for anyone at any level of performance. From the beginner walker to the tri-athlete. I think we need to keep a constant eye on the menu to make sure we incorporate the healthy stuff- because it's not only about eating more or less but it all has to be healthy, nutritious foods.
