Eat Real Food: Avoid man-made food-like substances. This means avoiding anything processed, comes in a package, has a long shelf life and a long list of ingredients.
Not Too Much: Can be a little different for everyone based on what works best for the individual athlete’s lifestyle and their goals. It could be counting macros/calories. . . it could be 3-4 meals a day, no snacking, no seconds. . . it could be intermittent fasting. The goal here is to keep intake to levels that support exercise but not body fat.
Mostly Plants: Every meal, including breakfast, should include vegetables. Cover your plate with vegetables then add the rest of the meal. It is important to put emphasis on plants and vegetables because they are often neglected from our diets and have a ton of nutritional value.
