Alexandra Boikova: “I have a tendency to be overweight, and as soon as I add meat, fruits, cheese to the diet, I have to compensate with a daily run.”
Pair skater Alexandra Boikova about her diet.
Alexandra Boikova: My diet is mostly consists of fat and fibre. Breakfast – a handful of cashews and a cup of coffee. For lunch I eat an apple, a twix, and again I drink coffee (it’s too hard without it). Why such a strange set? The answer is simple: I can’t train on a full stomach. In the evening, I most often have a salad of cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and avocados with olive oil.
On weekends, however, I try to have a normal lunch – baked salmon, for example.
On vacation, of course, I eat more varied, but precisely because of this, I can’t afford to just lie on the beach. I have a tendency to be overweight, and as soon as I add meat, fruits, cheese to the diet, and I start eating more fish, I have to compensate for this – and run daily for 30-40 minutes. But I refuse from sweets even on vacation – maybe that’s why I don’t get much extra weight on vacation.
