Here's What A Female Competitive Weightlifter Eats To Stay In Shape

Morghan King is a competitive weight lifter, and to her, food is pure fuel. (Food to us is pure enjoyment. Excuse us while we grab a bikkie.)

Now, we're back. 

She has to do nine sessions a week of intense workouts that can last up to two and a half hours, so making sure that she eats the right thing to get through the incredible amount of exercise she has to do is important. 

Munchies, the foodies who work for Vice, decided to follow her around for a week to see just how much she has to eat to make sure that she stays at the right weight of 48 kilos on the button, and what she takes on to fuel her muscles. 


As one of the few women in the world who can lift double her own body weight, nutrition is a constant concern as she attempts to balance protein, carbs and fats to make her body work at optimum efficiency.  

What's the one thing you think you'd miss most if you had to go on a clean weightlifter's diet like Morghan?
