Most athletes will tell you they eat to train. Not train to eat. Food is primary fuel, for training, recovery, and for making sure you stay as healthy as possible.
I’ve always seen food as something to be enjoyed and appreciated as well. As an athlete, I have always been an avid reader of nutritional books, and as the years went on I soon converted to reading all sorts of cookbooks.
