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.

I have been doing a training program online with Ifbb Pro Betsy McNally and she is awesome! I have known her since grade school and she has been a gymnast practically since birth (lol). But since then she became a certified sports nutritionist and a certified personal trainer. She is also a professional fitness competitor. Anyhow – I have been working with her for about 5 weeks and I have lost over 10 pounds and 2 jean sizes. (A blessing and a curse at over $130 a pair ) But I am loving her meal plans and her training schedules. She changes them every week so I don’t get bored or used to the program. You should check her out online atwww.betsymcnally.com. Luv ya girl!
