Suppose that there is this "ideal and healthy" diet. Do professional athletes also follow this "ideal and healthy" diet for regular citizens who are not professional athletes or professional athletes should have different diet?

Professional athletes must follow unique diets that probably would not work for your average joe. For example, a marathoner will consume a lot of carbs before the event. A non-athlete would regret this as overloading on carbs is no good for a diet. I can't think of an "ideal and healthy" diet that would allow the marathoner to gain the carbs they need while allowing the average citizen to lose weight. Athletes simply require more as they burn more calories.

Does this mean that, if you're are one of people who exercise a lot, I mean a lot, your diet should be different from what healthy diet is to regular people?

I have exercised a lot in a time and I must confess I also started having different eating habits too. after you enter a training regime you'll see some food is good and some not and you'll adjust in time. With a good diet and training regime the results will be quite good Smile

Different sports do require different diets to the average Joe. Weight lifters often consume many small meals throughout the day, usualy apporx. 4 hours apart, with concentration on carbs for muscle fuel (body converts carbs to glycogent which is needed to work muscles) and proetein timing, i.e. eating proteins at the right time after a workout to ensure the body has everything it requires to repair and build muscle.

Different athlete require different diets. Many athletes have to keep their weight down.
Carrying a bit of extra weight will make a lot of difference when doing the high jump.
Rugby players require some fat covering for extra padding, as muscle does not absord impact as well as good old fat.

For most serious athletes diet is as important as training and rest. But, the diet still has to be healthy. A body builder will be better off getting their carbs and proteins from chicken and vegetables than from Big Macs.

Cheers,

Jon.

Yep, nutrition is a big thing in athletics. It's all about timing and proportion of different types of food - protein, carbs, fats etc. Especially running up to and on competition days. Also there is seasonal variation in diet to allow growing/bulking phases and then cutting/weight loss. Check out Lance Armstrong's diet, which is a seasonal one.
