2012's Most Enviable Olympic Bodies

Olympic Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and Judo champion Ronda Rousey is one tough cookie. She's quick to admit she has opinions and not afriad to share them, which she's done numerous times in interviews - perhaps most recently when she said she would beat up Kim Kardashian if she had the chance. Yikes!

Rousey has had a highly-decorated career leading up to this year's games and is looking forward to getting in the ring to defend her Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight title. If that doesn't sound intimdating enough, she's finished off all of her opponents by arm bar - a move that essentially hyperextends the shoulder or elbow - in the first round. In other words, whoever she's fighting better watch out.

Rousey has shared her unconventional diet, which is essentialy a mix of Paleo and what she calls 'warrior." In order words, she doesn't eat anything that wasn't running around or growing thousands of years ago, eats a mix of berries all day, and only eats one big, main meal at night before bed. After a fight, her go-to meal is a bit plate of buffalo wings and apple pie. Sounds like an Olympic-sized diet to me - but her body clearly shows that her hard work easily outweighs her voracious appetite.
