Hilary Knight, Olympic U.S. Women’s Hockey Player Says She Doesn’t Believe in Dieting

In order to take home the gold at this year’s Winter Olympics, U.S. women’s hockey player Hilary Knight is all about healthy eating. But the 5’11” forward tells PEOPLE she doesn’t believe in dieting.

“It’s not sustainable,” she says. “I believe in lifestyle changes to accommodate a healthy living.”

Given Knight’s intense training schedule, which is currently six days a week, Knight says she eats more calories in order to help her body recover.

The 28-year-old also drinks tons of water — more than 130 ounces when she is working out or on the ice.
