Osterman cat you have your bases covered when it comes to a complete diet. The softball player, who has partnered with Team Milk, sat down with Us weekly to serve up everything you eat in a day as you head to the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.
The Team USA pitcher came out of retirement to return to the world stage when the Olympic Committee voted to re-add softball to the games ahead of the Tokyo tournament.
“It was a thrill for sport that we can be at the Olympics again and show how good our sport is and how good it is for female athletes,” she said. U.S. “I don’t dwell on decisions too much. So in, I think, 48 hours, I made all the phone calls I needed to make and decided, ‘If I think I can do it, I should probably go ahead and give it a try.
When the Texas native decided to go back to training, she also had to think about her diet. To find out what her diet consists of and why it no longer counts calories, watch the exclusive video above.
“When I came back from retirement, I counted calories and was very adamant about continuing to pay attention to what I eat,” Osterman explained. “Since then I have become a little more forgiving. I don’t necessarily count calories as much as I look ahead to see what I have to do that day. If I have all three components of training, then obviously I need to eat a little more, but if I only have pitching and I have no lifting or conditioning, then I eat a little less or I am smarter with what I eat. “
Although you no longer count calories, you remain committed to a healthy daily diet.
“Breakfast can range from a smoothie to a yogurt parfait, which is yogurt, berries, and granola,” he said. “This morning, I had a sweet potato hash that includes sweet potatoes, turkey sausage, bell peppers and onions, and then I put an egg on top.”
Although you try to be “mindful” of what you eat, sometimes you need a takeout option for lunch.
“Lunch can be anything from a salad to a sandwich, occasionally maybe some Chick-fil-A chicken nuggets. I try to grill chicken as much as possible, ”he said. “For dinner, we eat quite well. We cook most of it. I will substitute zucchini noodles in place of spaghetti or have potatoes or sweet potatoes in place of bread and rice. Sometimes I put quinoa in it, I’m quite aware of what I eat. “
The athlete also explained how excited she was to receive the call to be a part of Team Milk for the upcoming games.
“I was lucky in 2008 to be part of Team milk during those Olympics too. So when I got the call this time, I was super excited, “she said. U.S. “I have always drunk milk my whole life. I understand your benefits. It has really been a great experience to be with them and spread the message of how milk can really help athletes. “
