She Fuels Her Body with Food
Sunisa explained to Women's Health that it's important to keep her body fueled with food. "We are working out so much and then we're competing every week," she says. "[So] it's important to keep my body fueled and strong and healthy because it's easier to get injured now that I'm just competing every single weekend."
Sunisa has a few go-to comfort foods, though. "I always have a pizza after every meet," she told Women's Health. She also has a sweet tooth. "I love ice cream. That's my go-to. Or like a milkshake," she says. "I don't really like chocolate, so I won't eat a chocolate cake or anything like that." Her favorite flavor is strawberry. "I like to think that it's healthier because it's strawberry, right?"
Here Is What She Eats in a Day
Sunisa eats eggs and sausage or eggs and bacon for breakfast, however, it "usually ranges because I can't eat the same thing every single day," she says. Sometimes she will have a strawberry banana smoothie with vanilla protein powder. Lunch is usually a salad or protein and quinoa bowls. "I pretty much eat anything," she adds. "I'm not a really picky eater." She also snacks throughout the day. "When I'm in practice, we have like a really big snack bar," she says. She also likes pita chips and hummus, cheesesticks, banana chips, and almonds. Protein wafers and cheese with salami and crackers are another snack she enjoys. As for dinner, she will have a steak with a side of greens.
Avoiding Carbs, Fried Foods, and Sweets
Sunisa has never followed a specific diet, but tries to stay away from carbs, fried foods, and sweets. She also makes sure to consume lots of protein to aid muscle recovery.
"I get Starbucks in the morning and I always have to get my two drinks," Lee told POPSUGAR. One is usually either coffee or matcha, "Usually, I get a venti iced matcha latte with coconut milk and two pumps of vanilla," she says. "It's so good, I get it every single time." The other? "I always have to get my strawberry lemonade refresher."
Journaling is one of Sunisa's self-care rituals. "I'll journal my goals and just write down how I'm feeling before the meet because I do get a lot of anxiety and stuff," she told POPSUGAR. "So it helps me a lot to just like kind of let it out there."
