Aly Raisman takes her diet very seriously, she said in a video posted on Yahoo Sports. She knows that as an elite gymnast she can't short her body of carbohydrates and other important nutrients.
"For gymnasts you're supposed to kind of try to eat less," Raisman said in the video. "The quantity has to be smaller, but you just have to eat a little bit more frequently.
What's Raisman's go-to drink for after a workout? Chocolate milk. She said it's scientifically proven to be the best recovery drink someone can have after a workout.
"It has the best combination of carbohydrates and proteins," Raisman. "I know a lot of other athletes that do it and I definitely feel like it makes a big difference to have chocolate milk after a work out."
It's not all chocolate-coated happiness for everyone. Wieber's favorite food is hummus, while Maroney listed sushi, strawberry and mangoes. Douglas said Mexican and Italian food, Ross likes salmon and Raisman listed her favorite foods as watermelon and yogurt in their Team USA biographies.
And it's not just healthy food either. Maroney tweeted out on July 11, 7-Eleven's birthday, that she wish she had a free slushee.
