Growing Bolder Nutrition
 
nutrition for OLYMPIANS

With Team USA competing in Sochi for the 2014 Winter Games, it got us thinking about Winter Olympians' diets. What type of fuel does it take for these elite athletes to stay on top of their game and compete with the best in the world? Fortunately for us, the University of Montana has done an extremely thorough investigation and has created an entire course around it.

Best of all, the university has created an online informational guide that highlights the program, so we can find tips to apply to our daily lives, even if we are not Olympic athletes. Find out things like how energy is stored and used, what your caloric goals should be and the best ways to fuel yourself before, during and after exercise. Click here to check out the site now.
