What Big Dawgs Athlete Colleen Fotsch Eats on a Rest Day

25 Jun


Colleen Fotsch is a multi-year CrossFit Games athlete having competed at the Games on both a Team and as an Individual. She was a collegiate swimmer for Cal and is currently studying for a masters in kinesiology online. Colleen has been a Big Dawgs athlete for roughly 3 years now and works with Coach Sam Smith.

As you can watch in her vlog on Youtube, Colleen shares what she eats on a rest day. On her rest days, Colleen sometimes will eat a little less carbs than on a training day, unless she is still hungry (which she was when she documented this day of eating). Colleen notes that she tries to get all her protein from whole foods on her rest days, however, shakes can be useful to hit her protein goals for the day, training day or not. One thing Colleen is working on is not eating too late in the day (because digestion can disrupt your sleep). So she is focusing on being done eating around 2 hours prior to bedtime.
