Tucking in to an Olympian diet
The fact is, most Olympians eat more than the usual Recommended Daily Allowance levels of 2,000 calories per day, with most of those extra calories used as fuel to power their intensive training sessions. To give you a rough idea of what goes into a typical Olympian diet, the UK-based National Health Service, for instance, published this 6,000-calorie, five-meals-a-day recommended Olympian diet. So what other diets do Olympians take before the biggest sporting event of their lives? Here are three broad diets.
Here's your quick 10-minute game plan to good grooming:
- Ditch the bar. Use a face wash made for your skin type with a dime-sized amount to dissolve away daily dirt and grime. Pull double duty and lather up in the shower. Total time: 2 minutes.
- Scrub up. Use a daily scrub to cleanse out oil and dirt in your pores and leave skin clear and smooth. Apply to fingertips and massage the surface of your face in gentle circular motions. Total time: 3 minutes
- Shower away. An intense body wash with detoxifying ingredients and a classic masculine scent can reinvigorate you when you most need it. Total time: 3 minutes
- Slap it on. Harsh Malaysian weather conditions and constant shaving means skin is desperate for moisture. Slap on combo of moisturiser with SPF 15 for face and UV protection with Vitamin E for body to replenish skin moisture, protect your skin against harmful rays and soothe razor burns. Total time: 2 minutes
