Balanced Nutrition

When it comes to what I put in my body, I’m not very picky. I use food as fuel. With that in mind, my wife (who doubles as my nutritionist) does a fantastic job of making sure our meals are colorful and extremely nutritious. Even though I use a few nutrition products to help me recover faster, I firmly believe that a balanced diet trumps any dietary supplement. I listen to my cravings, including cheeseburgers, chocolate, ice cream, nuts and chips, but try not to overindulge in the temptations.

With a great nutritionist and chef I still need some help with the holes in my diet. I use a few supplements with which I have had personal experience and success. I use PowerBar’s Ironman Restore drink (gets the right nutrients into my body quickly post-workout), Zone’s OmegaRx (reduces inflammation) and First Endurance’s MultiV (keeps me healthy).
