How should I adjust my eating in regards to change in type of training?

I spend a majority of the year as a professional athlete but am currently in the off-season. This past season I had incorporated Olympic lifting into my regime and saw amazing results. I have about four months of off-season and am looking to change up my routine for a small mental/physical break.

For example, during the season, I train for 6 hours/day for 6 days/wk plus 3-4 lifting sessions per week. The past month, I have been doing power yoga 3-4 days/wk, 3 cardio days, and 1-2 bodyweight sessions. Just took my weight out of curiosity and noticed I am 5 pounds less than last month.

Any recommendations for how I should change my eating so as to not lose too much muscle? I am obviously eating less right now and have reduced my fruit intake to about 1-2 servings of berries/day. I also eliminated dairy completely and reduced coffee to once per week.

Bean, I coach high school distance runners -- they all incorporate olympic lifting. I have worked with four marathoners to get them to the olympic trials -- all incorporate olympic lifting. I was a collegiate runner, we all incorporated olympic lifting. I find it incredibly surprising you are just now incorporating those lifts...

P.S. not all professional athletes have teams of trainers and nutritionists

Yes, as I am a long distance athlete. We tend to try and keep the lifting down thus the overall bodyweight down...thanks for the help...

you arae a professional athlete that just started to incorporate Olympic lifting? And you are asking a random web site for training and nutritional advice? I call spam.

If you are for real...eat carbs and lots of them. That's about it
