The Gymnastics Kitchen With Betsy: How to Eat on Competition Day


How to Eat on Competition Day

A few weeks ago, a coach contacted me about her athletes who bombed out at a recent competition. Her gymnasts were lethargic and slow moving the morning of their competition. After the meet, a parent mentioned that one of the girls had eaten sausage biscuits and hash browns for breakfast, and another only had a Pop-Tart. Both of these are highly processed, fat-laden food options and offer virtually no nutritional value to an athlete.

Betsy, you are an inspiration to your clients! Not only do you give us your knowledge, you are there with us every step of the way. When I started your online 6-week program back in October, I didn’t know what to expect. I had no idea what I would gain from this since we were not working in person. However, what I gained was knowledge from a great teacher…and health professional. You made me look forward to the workouts and the meal plans you sent each week, because I saw changes in my body that I had always longed for. On your program I have lost over 20 pounds and have toned and gained strength that I have never had in my life.

Everyone has a busy life and mine is no exception, but you made it easy to put away those excuses and just do. Your program made me want to eat better, not only for me, but for my family. Your weekly updates were caring and genuine, and you my friend, are great at what you do. After taking two of your six week classes, not only am I still working out every day, but eating clean is now my way of life. I don’t even have to think about it or work hard at it anymore, it is just what I do. I have you to thank for how I look today.
