It’s well-known in the fitness world that if you want to transform your body then you’ll need to reconsider how many calories you’re packing on each day. For one Olympian that’s exactly the case as she gears up for her next round of bobsledding races.
Lolo Jones is reportedly consuming 9,000 calories a day to bulk and strengthen up her physique so that she can meet the demands of the U.S. Bobsled team. Jones, who once maintained a lean 133-pound physique as an Olympic hurdler, is attempting to weigh in at 160 pounds, the largest she’s ever been in her athletic career.
“I’m the heaviest ever in my life,” Jones told USA Today. “It took so much work. I’m three pounds away from my ultimate goal.”
Jones reportedly downs several protein shakes a day and makes McDonald’s runs in order to put on pure muscle.
