How to Eat Like an Athlete

For more info:

In this video, I’m going to be going over the optimal foods to improving your Athletic performance. There are 6 specific foods I want you to include in your diet to help improve your recovery time and help increase the fuel your body has to increase your energy levels.
1.) Coconut oil
– Coconut oil is great because it has a high heat threshold and contains medium chain fatty acids that your body can burn for energy for endurance events.
2.) Superseeds
-Superseeds like chia seeds are known as warrior food. Chia is your highest plant based source of protein, it’s high in fiber, and omega 3 fatty acid, which is also excellent for increasing athletic performance.
3.) Collagen
-Foods like Bone Broth can improve your joints, improve detoxification, and heal your gut.
4.) Protein
– Protein like grass-fed beef, which is high in iron and vitamin B12, improve your athletic performance.
5.) Berries
-Berries are extremely high in antioxidants, which support recovery for athletes.
6.) Vegetables
-Vegetables can help alkalize your body, which ultimately support recovery. Cruciferous vegetables, like kale and collard greens, are extremely high in vitamins, minerals, and chlorophyll. They reduce the acid in your body and improve your overall recovery time.

Tip: Right before your workout, I recommend consuming some carbohydrates and a small amount of protein.
After your workout, I would recommend consuming a superhuman shake with grass-fed whey. You can get my grass-fed whey protein in the Dr. Axe store here: You can get my superhuman shake recipe here:

Try these nutrition tips and I’m confident that you will have a fast recovery and improve your overall athletic performance.
