Mike Boyle's Advice To Athletes: Eat More High Quality Protein and Vegetables, Less Carbs

Top strength and conditioning trainer Mike Boyle echoes the advice of more and more nutrition experts in talking nutrition with 4-time Olympic medalist Angela Ruggiero: "This high carb, low fat thing has only given us a higher incidence of diabetes and hasn't done much else for the country. We're fatter and sicker, so I have to believe it's not working real well."  

Boyle advises the athletes he trains to:
  • refuel after exercise (a 2 to 1 mix of carbs and protein)
  • eat more high quality protein, 
  • eat more vegetables, and 
  • not to forget eat breakfast (a protein-vegetable combination, such as vegetable omelet, he says, is ideal)
