What Top U.S. Olympians Really Eat

Tim Morehouse

Tim Morehouse, two-time U.S. National Individual Champion and past Olympic silver medalist, is definitely a force to be reckoned with in the sport of fencing. Surprisingly, Tim told me that he didn’t give much thought to nutrition until after Beijing, when he realized that overhauling his subpar diet could boost his energy and give him an edge over competitors. He quickly ditched his pizza habit and recruited Bistro MD, a healthy-meal delivery program that made eating well manageable for this busy Manhattan athlete. Between meals Tim snacks on Sabra hummus and vegetables and sips Isopure protein shakes to ensure he’s getting the appropriate amount of calories (3,000 to 4,000 per day) and nutrients to fuel his daily five-hour sessions at the gym. In the process, Tim dropped 15 pounds and was on top of his game heading into the London Olympics, where he finished in the top ten.
