Great! Watched this to see "what olympians eat for breakfast" but another misleading headline leads us to "whatever I can get my hands on" and "depends on where we are." So helpful. Where do I find that in the cereal aisle?

Good Luck to all of our USA athletes. Look forward to the Olympics every four years, winter and summer. I'm a little worried about this one. Just pray that our athletes stay safe. This is the one
time in my life I'm glued to the T.V. GO U.S.A.!!!

We have 3 Olympians in our family and none of them use steroids. Really guys. True swimmers. joggers, etc. are born with the ability to win both physically and mentally. It does not take drugs to win. But with injury (or Hx. of ) many people end up taking steroids for anti inflammatory. Trust me they are not recommended for anyone who is not in need. Long time steroid uses after crushed arm from an accident. If you do not exercise when using them your muscle deteriorate and you get flabby. Do you take an analgesic for your pain or a cup of hot tea? Try herbal remedies first....but do not label the Olympians as steroid user please.
