British Olympic champions shared the secrets of their sports diet with The Guardian and talked about what they eat to stay in shape.
Sarah Satori (34, Paralympic cyclist) bicycles up to six hours every day, so eating right is critical. In a difficult mode (90-130 miles daily for 9 days), you need to accurately calculate your nutrition. She eats carbohydrate foods like toast with jam about every 3 hours.
Day Green (25, steeplechase) believes that eating well is good for quality workouts - the better a champion feels, the more efficient he will be. He also gives a good example - you shouldn't wait for a good performance of a car, pouring low-quality fuel into it. If Day doesn't eat well, then he concentrates worse - his stopwatch won't lie.
Jessica Ennis (25, pentathlon) says people are used to thinking that athletes have a special diet and probably a strict diet. But the athlete admitted that in addition to vegetables and herbs, there is always a little chocolate in her cart in the store. Athletes eat regular food and, like all humans, have their weaknesses.

Louis Smith (22 years old, gymnast) admitted that lately he has often tried some unusual dishes, and in everyday life he likes to cook duck with prunes, and this does not interfere with his gymnast career at all.
Keri-Ann Pei (25, swimming) miscalculated the diet in 2007, and the result was not long in coming. She ate pasta or rice, felt strange and only took 11th place. The athlete is convinced that in her sport, what she eats a couple of days before the competition has a tangible impact on the result.
