With just over a month until the official kickoff of the London Olympics, you can bet that hundreds of elite athletes all over the world are kicking their regimes into high gear. Of course, that includes their carefully planned diets, a few of which photographer Umit Bektas has captured in a great series we first spotted over at My Modern Met. It’s amazing how much some of these athletes eat in a day (and so many apples!), and we can only imagine how much training they’re doing if their bodies require all that fuel. Also, now we’re hungry.
