There’s no top-secret athlete diet, says Matt Fitzgerald, author of The Endurance Diet.if your diet is not in check you are not going to magically transform your body into an athletic one.
I’m not saying exercise doesn’t have to anything with how you look and feel, but diet is the biggest factor in how athletic you will look. Want to be lean, strong, and healthy? Give your diet the attention it deserves.
Get the right amount of calories from protein, fats, and carbs. Get in your fiber and micronutrients too.
