This example is purely to provide some insight on how someone with nutrition knowledge and competitive athletic goals fuels their day. It is not intended to tell you what to do. What I eat and how I train is for my body, schedule and goals, and that may or may not be right for your personal needs and situation.  To create a plan that is right for you, reach out to a sports dietitian for assistance.
