In another episode of our series on how real athletes eat in the real world, Josh Everett talks to the camera about his food choices over a 24 hour period. Josh’s food intake includes oatmeal with fruit, a turkey sandwich, apples, a paleo kit, macadmaia nuts, avocado, grilled meat and veggies.
But Josh also consumes lots of supplements: protein powder, liver powder, fish oil, digestin, creatine monohydrate, beta alamine, cod liver oil, vitamins C and D, seriphos, calcium and magnesium, zinc, and multivitamins. Josh says he consulted with a naturopathic doctor who diagnosed adrenal fatigue and recommended the supplements. Josh says he doesn’t recommend this approach for everyone. He’s simply found something that works for him and fits his lifestyle.
