To survive, a pro athlete's nutrition has to be on point.

Players might've been able to eat junk in college and slide by on talent and skill, but when they arrive in the big leagues, the Cheetohs and chimichanga diet no longer cuts it.

Professional teams spend big bucks making sure their players fuel up the right way, and many pro athletes employ personal chefs to ensure they always have access to healthy meals.

However, a few pros stand alone for their extreme dedication to nutrition.

Their diets are categorized by insane discipline and a meticulous attention to detail.

When they indulge, they do it with ice cream made from avocado or cupcakes stuffed with kale.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, these athletes are also some of the very best at what they do.

These nineteen pro athletes with ridiculously strict diets will make you think twice about what it means to eat healthy.
