Day 145- Nutrition Bite

Here is another olympic diet created by Syrie Wongkaew for swimmers. Syrie devised a high carbohydrate eating plan using the Australian Institute of Sports sample plan for a male swimmer.

Sugar Preacher's Experience
I will not be experimenting with this swimmer diet. I couldn't eat that much food if I tried. I would explode!!! However, I'm really excited to start the Wed Shed Diet!!
