She Eats What Feels Good

As an athlete, Biles is careful about her diet, but she is not obsessive. "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. 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 Loves Protein Shakes

Biles rarely eats breakfast during the week because of training, but she loves a protein shake following her morning workout. "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."


Weekend Splurge

When she's not at the gym, Biles loves a good protein-packed breakfast. "On the weekends, I'll have some protein waffles with chocolate chips, some eggs, or even make cinnamon rolls," she says. "Because I might not have to be at the gym, I can actually take the time to make breakfast."


She Loves To Cook


While Biles occasionally uses convenient food apps for delivery, she loves to cook too. "I feel like it's more manageable because I can get home, shower, and go on the app to order whatever I want with the click of a button," she says. "If I cook, though, it's usually pasta, or chicken or salmon in the air fryer, oven, or on the grill."


Cheat Meals, Italian Style


Biles understands the importance of balance as part of a healthy lifestyle. "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."
