CrossFit's 'Fittest Woman on Earth' Tia-Clair Toomey Revealed Her Exact 2900-Calorie Diet

·3-min read

Tia-Clair Toomey is CrossFit's 'Fittest Woman on Earth'. She's won the last four CrossFit Games, and this month she's going for her fifth title.

If she's victorious, she'll equal Mat Fraser's men's record, but, as we know from his training regime, that kind of supremacy doesn't come without a lot of hard work and dedication.

Speaking on her YouTube channel, Toomey has revealed everything she's been eating in the run up to the 2021 Games, and it's fair to say that, with regards to her diet, she's putting the work in. "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," said Toomey.

Breakfast #1 – 455 Calories

Toomey typically wakes up at around 7:30am on training days, and after having some water she'll eat her first breakfast of the day.

Breakfast number one is made up of a cup (128g) of oatmeal, with 40g of blueberries, a banana and a tablespoon of honey. "This is something I love to eat before. I feel satisfied, and I feel like I have the right amount of energy for my session," said Toomey.

Breakfast #2 – 640 Calories

Once Toomey is done with her morning cardio session, she'll follow it up with her second breakfast of the day.

For this breakfast she'll have a bagel, with both sweet and savoury toppings. On one side Toomey has avocado and a large egg, while on the other side she'll spread peanut butter and blackberry jam. Some days, she says, she'll also have either turkey bacon or regular bacon with this meal too.

"I figured if I have two bagels and eggs on both I end up not satisfied," said Toomey, "so that bit of sweetness with the peanut butter and the jam gives me that satisfaction at the end of my meal, but I know I'm eating healthy and getting everything in my meal as well."

Lunch – 950 Calories

During Toomey's afternoon strength session, she says she consume two Fuel For Fire protein smoothies, and she'll do that whether she's hungry or not. "Even if I'm not feeling that hungry I just make sure I'm having two of these and it just gives me that little bit of extra energy, so I never get to a point where I am feeling depleted," she said.

Throughout her session. Toomey also drinks a vegan protein shake, mixed with water, and afterwards will eat a lunch that consists of kidney beans, carrots and tamarind with basmati rice.

Dinner – 598 Calories

For dinner, Toomey likes to mix up her protein sources, so she'll either eat red meat, white meat or, as in the video, a fish, like salmon, which she combines with leftover rice and vegetables.

"I'm having a lot more protein in my meal tonight, compared to what I've been eating throughout the day, which was predominantly more carbohydrate based," said Toomey.

All in all, Toomey eats around 2900 calories on a training day, which includes her meals, snacks and supplements. "That allows me to have the right amount of energy, feel really, really good and allows me to fuel my body as best as it possibly can," she said.
