with my usual end of competition season break, comes my end of athletes diet break too:-)
Normally I follow a moderate GI diet, with "windows" of higher GI foods pre-training or racing. My diet is high in healthy veggies, nuts, lean proteins and very little "starchy" CHO (but still a bit as I have a 3 year old!).
Since the final Verge race, I have been on a no "green" diet. Lots of Thai/Indian/Mexican cuisine all washed down with some yummy brown beers to boot! so far I am up 1 pound...and hope to put on another 2 pounds by the end of my break on the 19th of December.
So, while your off the bike or have the running shoes stored away...enjoy a "normal" (sad to say eh?) diet so it is easier to get back to that athletes diet when the break is over!
Happy Holidays folks!
