As Games training reaches its final crescendo ahead of kick off in Madison next week, Tia-Clair Toomey took to her YouTube Channel to share what she eat in a day of training to fuel her throughout her workouts. So, what does the world’s fittest woman eat in a day?
This isn’t the first video Tia has done which covers her diet, but this is the first one which focuses on her nutrition as she trains for the 2021 NOBULL CrossFit Games — arguably one of the more intense periods in her training and season.
What does the World’s Fittest Woman Eat in a Day?
To kick things off, Tia usually starts the day with a coffee but not on the day of this video. At 7.30am, before her morning cardio session, she will have her first breakfast to fuel her for the day of training ahead.
- Frozen Blueberries
10g protein, 98g carbs, 4g fat
Tia’s partner and coach Shane, on the other hand, is experimenting by replacing his morning coffee with celery juice. Delicious.
Following her morning training session, she will have a second breakfast.
- Onion Bagel
- Large Egg
- Half an Avocado
- Peanut Butter
- Sugar-free Blackberry Jam
21g protein, 64g carbs, 32g fat
By this time it’s midday, and Tia moves into her afternoon training session. You can get an idea of what Tia’s Games training sessions look like here. She’s also gotten through about 1.5 liters of water.
Moving into the afternoon lifting session, Tia opts for a Fuel for Fire for something easy to consume and already broken down.
- Kidney beans + Carrot + Tamarind
- Organic Basmati Rice
- Chocolate Chip Brownie
- Fuel for Fire (Strawberry Banana)

- Opti-Greens 50
- Opti-Reds 50
