Sport: Bobsled
Snacks during training: Steak, baby carrots with dip
Indulgence after competition: Super spicy chicken wings

While making the switch from track to luge, Jones took on 9,000-calories-a-day diet that included McDonald’s bacon cheeseburgers. Jones’ other essential foods include steak, fruit, dark chocolate, crawfish, and spicy chicken wings. "I usually treat myself to wings once a week. In the off-season I want to go for the record of eating 70 super spicy wings," Jones told Women's Health Mag.
