Tia-Clair Toomey, also known as, the “fittest woman on Earth,” eats around 2,900 calories a day to fuel her training.
The four-time CrossFit Games winner recently posted a YouTube video detailing her current daily diet as she gears up for the 2021 event.
Toomey, 27, trains hard, as she told Insider last year, and needs a lot of energy, on training days particularly.
“You’ll see how much I really have to eat and have to really force down during this time when I’m training and my body needs a lot of energy,” Toomey said.
When she wakes up at 7.30 A.M, Toomey eats her first breakfast of the day which is around 455 calories.
The meal consists of a large bowl of oatmeal (1 cup/128g) with 40g blueberries, a banana, and honey.
“This is something I love to eat before. I feel satisfied, and I feel like I have the right amount of energy before my session,” Toomey said.
At around noon after a cardio session, Toomey refuels with “one of my favorite breakfasts”: a bagel, half with a fried egg and avocado, and half with peanut butter and blackberry jam.
The meal is around 640 calories, but sometimes she has turkey or regular bacon on the side too.
Toomey prefers having a higher fat than higher carb diet, but makes sure she gets plenty of carbs and protein too.
In the afternoon, Toomey does her lifting session, during which she consumes two Fuel for Fire smoothie pouches.
Afterwards, she eats a lunch of rice with kidney bean dal, plus one or two protein shakes, which is around 950 calories in total.
Toomey also drinks lots of plain water, plus water with BCAAs (branch chain amino acids), and greens and red superfood powders, throughout the day.
For dinner, Toomey eats a 598-calorie meal of salmon (or another protein source like red meat, white meat, or other fish) with beetroot, rice, and baked vegetables.
While she eats plenty of carbs throughout the day for fuel, dinner is more protein-focused to help Toomey’s body recover.
For dessert, she enjoys an oat bar and a cup of tea.
