Often the diet of Olympic athletes sets the internet abuzz. Especially for the gymnasts who perform such high flips and crisp bar and vault routines, a proper diet is essential. But Simone Biles never shies away from engaging in delectable food.

No diet pressure for Simone

Even though diets vary according to the sport, Simone ensures regular cheat meal inclusion. Considered the greatest gymnast in the world, the 26-year-old includes broccoli, carrots, asparagus, corn, green beans, potatoes and peas. However, she can’t survive without pasta and pizza for dinner. Besides these fuel intakes, Simone saves a decent space for s’mores cookies, her favorite dessert. In fact, she has a fantastic food philosophy. Having already faced the worst of ‘twisties’, she doesn’t want her diet to pressure her. She eats whatever she feels like, refusing to track her food.
