She Has Learned to Put Herself First
Biles memorably put her mind/body connection before her work, bowing out of certain competitions to focus on her mental health. "I feel like I learned the most about myself during Tokyo," Biles told USA TODAY Sports. "How courageous, how brave I am. Because I always like to fake bravery. But I really think that solidified me being brave, speaking up for myself and just putting myself first." She added: "A lot of things that I would have never experienced or believed in as much … if that experience didn't happen."
She Does Not Track Her Eating
When it comes to dieting or calorie counting: "I do not track anything," she tells Women's Health. "I eat what I feel good with and try not to overeat or stuff myself because I'm always at the gym." She added: "For gymnasts, in particular, [tracking] can lead to health problems and eating issues, so I just eat what I know I can and should."
She Eats Oatmeal
"I wake up so early before practice, which is at seven, so sometimes I'll grab a quick bite and sometimes I won't," she told Women's Health. If she does, she'll sometimes grab an oatmeal. "Oatmeal contains soluble fiber, which reduces your low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, the 'bad' cholesterol. Soluble fiber is also found in such foods as kidney beans, Brussels sprouts, apples and pears," says the Mayo Clinic. "Soluble fiber can reduce the absorption of cholesterol into your bloodstream. Five to 10 grams or more of soluble fiber a day decreases your LDL cholesterol. One serving of a breakfast cereal with oatmeal or oat bran provides 3 to 4 grams of fiber. If you add fruit, such as a banana or berries, you'll get even more fiber."
She's Often at the Gym
"Regular exercise can help you control your weight, reduce your risk of heart disease and certain cancers, and strengthen your bones and muscles. But if you haven't exercised for some time and you have health concerns, you may want to talk to your doctor before starting a new fitness routine," says the Mayo Clinic. "When you're designing your personal fitness program, consider your fitness goals. Think about your fitness likes and dislikes, and note your personal barriers to fitness. Then consider practical strategies for keeping your fitness program on track."
She Does Endurance Training
"Endurance exercise is one of the four types of exercise along with strength, balance and flexibility," says the American Heart Association. "They don't all need to be done every day, but variety helps keep the body fit and healthy, and makes exercise interesting.…Also called aerobic exercise, endurance exercise includes activities that increase your breathing and heart rate such as walking, jogging, swimming, biking and jumping rope."
