She Eats This Way
Biles practices so early, she sometimes skips breakfast; if she has time, she'll eat some protein waffles or oats. For lunch, she'll order in or "If I cook, though, it's usually pasta, or chicken or salmon in the air fryer, oven, or on the grill," she tells Women's Health. As for dinner: "If I'm feeling like a little bit of a less healthy meal, I get pizza or fettuccine Alfredo with chicken," she says. "I really like home restaurants that are in the area because I feel like I get to be closer with them. I'm not picky. I'll try any new restaurant." Snackwise, "I don't really snack too too much because I'm always at the gym, but if I do, I try to snack on some fruit."
She Drinks Protein Shakes
"I love having a Core Power Protein Shake after a workout," she says. "Usually I drink half after the first practice and half after the second practice. One of my favorite flavors at the moment is vanilla. It always changes, but it's currently vanilla."
She Withdrew From Certain Events Due to Her Mental Health
"What I've been through, I've just always fought through it, and it's just been really hard," she said. "We have triggers and unfortunately I had one of my biggest ones here. But to come out and come back with a bronze medal, it means the world to end the Olympics like this."
She Knows Therapy Can Work
"For a while, I saw a psychologist once every two weeks. That helped me get in tune with myself so that I felt more comfortable and less anxious," she told Health magazine in June. Says the Mayo Clinic: "Psychotherapy can be helpful in treating most mental health problems, including:
- Anxiety disorders, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), phobias, panic disorder or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Mood disorders, such as depression or bipolar disorder
- Addictions, such as alcoholism, drug dependence or compulsive gambling
- Eating disorders, such as anorexia or bulimia
- Personality disorders, such as borderline personality disorder or dependent personality disorder
- Schizophrenia or other disorders that cause detachment from reality (psychotic disorders)"
Her Training Schedules is Intense!
"I train seven hours a day, I do have Sundays off," she explained on The Tonight Show. "So, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday I train twice a day. And then Thursday and Saturday I train once a day." "People always think I'm training, but besides that, I have amazing partners I work with so I get to share my time in between there," Simone told host Jimmy Fallon. "But it's not all glitz and glam, sometimes we have to get down and dirty."
