Michelle Kwan is a Big Eater

"I'm a big eater," Kwan says. (Her parents owned a Chinese restaurant.) Working out for six hours a day, as she did when she competed, meant she could eat as many as 4,000 calories daily. No longer; in her grad school classes, she actually has to sit down for big parts of her day. Although she has a sweet tooth, she watches the quantity of her food and eats healthfully. She says that, like everyone else, she has tried various dietary trends (including Atkins) but has settled on something close to the Zone Diet, which recommends a 40-30-30 percent balance of carbs, protein, and fat.
