Going for the Gold: Olympic Nutrition

Olympians are the premier athletes in the world. All are born with special physical talents, and their training helps fine tune that natural ability. The difference between a gold medal and placing fourth can be a split second, and one very important area that does make that difference is nutrition.

Hannah Kearney won the gold medal in mogul skiing during the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Nutrition is part of her training, and she's been helped by U.S. Olympic Committee Dietitian Susie Parker-Simmons.

While you might not be 'going for gold' yourself, sensible eating and portion size are things you can control. Being self aware of what makes you feel healthy and strong is also very important. But don't think you have to give everything up.

Sochi is in sight, and as the world's premier athletes compete, the difference between their diet and yours can be just a few seconds of focusing on nutrition.
