Have you ever wondered what one of the most successful and influential gymnasts of all time regularly eats as a part of her Olympic athlete diet?
As it turns out, it’s not something she really stresses over. Rather, Simone Biles chooses to eat what feels right on a daily basis.
Simone Biles Flexible Eating Habits
The star gymnast told Women’s Health Magazine that she doesn’t track any of the food she eats. By this, she means she doesn’t track calories, weigh her food, or follow any strict protocols when it comes to her diet.
“I eat what I feel good with and try not to overeat or stuff myself because I’m always at the gym,” Simone Biles said.
The two-time Olympic athlete spends about six to seven hours each day training in the gym. That means food and her fuel are incredibly important.
Instead of counting calories, you’ll more likely catch the gold-medal Olympic athlete counting down the minutes until her Uber Eats order is at her door.
She recently was in a video for the company alongside Jonathan Van Ness from “Queer Eye” for what is called the “Tonight I’ll Be Eating” campaign.
Specific Details On Simone Biles’ Diet
She said that she has to be at practice at 7 a.m. so breakfast is either skipped or she grabs some oatmeal or fruit. Instead of opting for a cup of coffee like 64% of American adults, Biles chugs water and preaches that she’s a morning person through and through.
On weekends she’ll make more elaborate breakfasts like eggs or protein waffles. Post-workout she opts for a protein shake, similar to many athletes. Lunch usually comes from Uber Eats and can be anything from pizza to salmon to sushi to veggies.
“I feel like it’s more manageable because I can get home, shower, and go on the app to order whatever I want with the click of a button. If I cook, though, it’s usually pasta, or chicken or salmon in the air fryer, oven, or on the grill,” Biles told the news outlet.
For dinner, she listens to her body and either cooks something (healthy or not) or tries a new restaurant. She admits she doesn’t have a big sweet tooth.
Simone Biles At 2020 Tokyo Olympics
Biles is a superstar gymnast that captivated America and the rest of the world since she stepped onto the Olympic stage in 2016.
The gold-medalist admitted just how much pressure she feels on the Olympic level.
“[I]t wasn’t an easy day or my best but I got through it. I truly do feel like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders at times. I know I brush it off and make it seem like pressure doesn’t affect me but damn sometimes it’s hard hahaha! The olympics is no joke!” she wrote on Instagram.
The Team USA gymnastics team is anticipated to dominate the competition. They finished one point behind Russia during the qualifying rounds. These qualifier scores do not carry over into the gymnastics finals on Tuesday.
Biles scored the highest compared to her teammates in the floor exercise and the vault. She got second on the uneven bars and balance beam.
