You can’t out-train a bad diet
Wanna be an Olympian? There are those who have the skills and there are those who have the wills, but massive doses of both are required.
That and good coaching, sound nutrition, and the likes. And I’ll skip the discussion on performance enhancing drugs except to say it seems to come with the world-class athlete territory.
But why anyone routinely drinks Gatorade or similar products to enhance their athletic performance is beyond me (unless they’re paid to promote it, which would explain a lot). The power of advertising, I suppose.
Generally, super low body fat numbers are what you really want (unless you’re in a sport or function that values—or doesn’t penalize—a high push weight, like a line position in football) for elite performance as opposed to, for example, using Gatorade as an important source of fluid, energy, or (wait for it…) electrolytes.
And if you just want lower body fat without world class athletic performance, it’s even simpler.
