24 Healthy Breakfasts Fit for Athletes

By Stephanie Lee, Body Builder, 01/28/19, 12:00PM CST


I've been bodybuilding for many years. One of the most important lessons I've learned is to start my day with a nutritious breakfast.'s athletes understand what it means to eat a "breakfast of champions." After all, their head-turning, competition-winning physiques aren't the result of some 7-minute abs program or fat-torching sorcery. No, their bodies—inside and outside—are the finely made product of many, many hours of hard work and sound nutrition, starting with a healthy breakfast.

Whether you break your fast first thing in the morning or much later in the day, our athletes agree that a kick-ass first meal should deliver the energy and nutrients you need to tango with your day's to-do list. If you want to train like an athlete, or aspire to look like one, eating like one is a great place to start.
