Men's Health: Everything a World Champion Wrestler Eats in a Day

By United World Wrestling Press

Jordan BURROUGHS (USA) has been one of the most consistent wrestlers in the world en route to becoming a four-time world champion and London Olympic gold medalist. The American superstar attributes a portion of his success to his healthy lifestyle and clean way of eating.

In a recent interview with Men's Health, Burroughs walked fans through a day of refueling after a hard training cycle. He stressed the importance of clean eating, saying, "I want to make sure everything I put into my body is going to fuel my performance. What I put into my body is what I would get out. The better the fuel, the better the performance." 

Burroughs broke his day down into three meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner. Here's what the Olympic champion ate for each meal:

A smoothie with a handful of spinach, almond butter, almond milk, avocado, chia seeds, flaxseeds, turmeric, plant-based protein and ice.

A veggie omelet with mushrooms, bell peppers and onions + a fruit salad made with blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries.

A piece of Atlantic salmon with sauteed spinach, mushrooms and a sweet potato.
