Training to be professional athlete is hard work he'd have a consistent workout routine and diet nutritionist Heidi school -- -- professional athletes prepare for competition and maintain their health.
During the offseason as well she's just the lead nutritionist for the NFL's New York football giants the former world champions -- -- I.
-- thank you for being here you work with.
The ultimate professional athletes on the planet -- the biggest people in professional sports.
Is -- -- take away for folks like me folks out there watching it that we can learn from the things you teach them and tell them.
Absolutely there -- three things they -- consistency.
Timing equality and that's something that everybody the specifics may change.
But those points are take -- points for that.
Now these athletes taking an enormous amounts of calories more so than me and most of folks out there watching and certainly yourself.
Is that something they want to maintain consistency throughout the year once it's in the -- season that got coming back an awful.
They got cut if they're not working out it's hard candy is not what types of foods should people be eating if they wanna stay in shape -- -- Bowl cup enormously.
Like some of the NFL players but in general what types of which -- -- basics and finally finds I'm gonna tell you -- Tea Party heard whether it's from whole grains to fresh fruits and vegetables and lean proteins everybody knows that -- how they put it together.
So tight put together a meal and then again he speaks it throughout the day.

What do these guys doing ramping up to the big game -- this awkward two week off period but.
As we are right noticed a couple of days before the big game what are they doing -- to get ready.
Well the truth is again a copy of their own -- nutritionist so high they might do something different but.
We'd be big party got down they've been doing it the whole season don't they -- something right this is not the time to change it so they've already figured out what works for them pregame.
If -- figure out what's in them for their training diet they already know what to do to recover for the next training out.
That -- wouldn't gotten this far they can figure that out.
And again it goes back to consistency is the point you made earlier.
Throughout the years stay the same we appreciate you being here guidance going licking good luck with the upcoming next NFL football season with the -- -- -- -- -- I would try to avoid the blue cheese on Sunday but I --
