Want to eat like “Extreme” contestants? Here’s what Powell recommends:

» Protein: Eggs, protein shakes, chicken, lots of fish

» Carbs: Whole grains, oatmeal, beans, quinoa, amaranth, root vegetables

» Vegetables: Load up on any or all vegetables;
cruciferous variety (broccoli, cauliflower) is a good way to fill up without loads of calories

» Fats: Oil, avocado, nuts (pecans, almonds, walnuts)

» And don’t forget the fish oil, which Powell says,
“is so good for you.”
