What a successful woman lightweight rower eats in a day.

The Telegraph interviewed Sophie Hosking GBR lightweight about her diet and when she eats during one day’s training.

It demonstrates clearly how a well-managed diet can be maintained by a professional athlete.

The comment at the end by the nutritionist is significant.

NIGEL DENBY dietitian

Sophie’s regime should be a lesson to the carb-phobic population. You have to eat carbs to give you the energy you need to exercise. Protein is needed for muscle development but carbs are not public enemy number one; just choose the right ones like sweet potato, oats and whole grains, which release their energy slowly.
