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.

Before I met Betsy, I thought that I would never find the motivation or time to eat healthy and exercise. Betsy, however, designs plans that work for me. She chose foods that I like, and I have discovered that I actually do like foods that are good for me. She gives me exercise plans that can be done with no expense. She checks in on me a couple of times each week and constantly encourages me to lead a healthy lifestyle. I’ve lost 27 pounds in 6 months, and I have no desire to go back. I love my new life and the energy that healthy living has given me! I recommend her nutrition and training programs to people every week.
