The 34-year-old, who is a two-time Olympic gold medal-winning volleyball player, said that her best advice doesn’t have to do with what people eat or how they work out.”My number one tip for maintaining a healthy lifestyle would be: Rest, rest, rest, rest, and rest,” People magazine quoted May-Treanor as saying.”You should get at least 8 hours of sleep, because at rest is when your body is trying to recover,” she said.May-Treanor, who won the gold medal with teammate Kerri Walsh in beach volleyball at both the 2004 and 2008 Olympics, also cited a balanced diet as crucial for maintaining peak performance – even more than hours logged in the gym.”You can exercise all you want, but if you’re not eating the right foods, it’s not going to equal out and you’re not going to get the results you want,” May-Treanor said.”It’s important to eat a meal every few hours because you’ll see your energy level stay consistent,” she added.
