Tia-Clair Toomey-Orr in Two-Piece Workout Gear Says "It's Not Hot Enough"

"I tripped too many times, I lost count."

Tia-Clair Toomey-Orr is getting her sweat on. In a new social media post the athlete, dubbed the "fittest woman on Earth," shows off her amazingly strong body during an intense workout session. "How many times did you trip on your Double Unders? I tripped too many times, I lost count. 🤦🏻‍♀️ (Anyone would think I learned from the 2022 games 😜) Just did 24.2," she captioned the post. How does the CrossFit games champ keep her body fueled for fitness? Here is everything you need to know about her diet. 



Tia-Clair, who won the CrossFit games a whopping five times now, relies on the workout to keep her in shape. "The beauty of CrossFit is there's no same day, there's always a ton of variety," she told Women's Health. CrossFit is a form of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) that focuses on improving strength, endurance, and body composition. However, it can result in injury if not done properly. The involvement of well-educated coaches decreases the injury rate.


Intuitive Eating


"Whatever my body feels or wants tends to determine what I'm eating," Tia-Clair told Women's Health. She works with Simone Jane Arthur, nutrition coach at The Method, who taught her how to eat intuitively and pay close attention to the ingredients in her food. "I have a coach that I trust and can confide in whenever I may be wanting to indulge in something that probably would ruin my recovery and how I feel," she added. "She's educated me on how important it is to listen to the body and reading the ingredients. That was a huge eye opener."


Water with Lemon

Tia wakes up around 7 am or as early as 5:30 am and hydrates. "I have a glass of water and a squeeze of lemon in it to give it a bit of flavor," she told Women's Health. According to the Mayo Clinic, hydration is important for a variety of reasons. Water helps get rid of waste through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements, keeps your temperature normal, lubricates and cushions joints, and helps protect sensitive tissues.


Here Is What She Eats in a Day


"I'll sometimes have oats with blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries," Tia told Women's Health about her breakfast, which always consists of proteins and fats to keep her full. "I also really like scrambled eggs with turkey bacon and avocado and sourdough toast. That's my go-to, favorite thing to have." Her favorite lunch? "I really love to cook up a stir fry with all the vegetables," she said. "I can put in as many vegetables as I like, and then add a different source of protein." She only uses coconut oil to cook. "I stay away from other oils," Tia added. "Pure coconut oil has a bit of flavor, and I know that's the only thing going into my body, [which makes me] confident that I'm staying healthy and providing my body with good clean nutrients." Other favorite lunches include steak with asparagus and potatoes, or eggs on a bagel. "We're just trying to make sure that I'm fueling the body with wholesome ingredients of fruit, vegetables, and good proteins, like chicken steak, or fish." And for dinner, which she tries to eat by 7:00 pm? "A nice go-to dinner is cooked up kale with salt sprinkled over it, and a slice of salmon or steak. It's light and satisfying and healthy. I try to have a smaller dinner, so I'm not going to bed on a full stomach." 


Fuel On-the-Go

"I'm constantly keeping my body fueled so I'm never feeling hungry," Tia told Women's Health. "Prior to training I have Fuel for Fire," she says about the protein smoothies in a squeezable pouch. She might also eat a banana. Post workout she eats leftovers, which she carries in her gym bag. "I've put my body through a strenuous training session, and it will be looking for food to help with recovery," Tia said. "I don't have a huge meal but enough to provide the body with fuel it's looking for after the session."
