She Eats Vegan
Kowalkiewicz, who suffers from Hashimoto's disease, adopted a vegan diet in 2019. She maintains that it helps with her inflammation and pain.
She Changed Everything
How did the fighter reverse a losing streak? She changed one thing: Everything. "I changed my whole life. I changed my gym, I changed my country because I moved from Poland to Florida. Now I train at ATT, I moved one year ago," she told Cageside Press.
Karolina has to drink a lot of water to stay hydrated for her workouts. "These photos have no message, I'm just standing in the parking and drinking water," she captioned an Instagram post. 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.
She Drinks Coffee
Karolina enjoys the perks of coffee. "High Five," she captioned the post. According to the Cleveland Clinic, there are several benefits of drinking coffee in moderation. "It acts on your brain to improve memory, mood, reaction times, and mental function," they say, citing a study finding that caffeine can improve endurance and performance during exercise. It is also antioxidant-rich, can ward off diabetes, prevent neurologic disease, lower cancer risk, and ward off depression, they point out.
She Feels Pressure When She Is on a Diet
"I never feel pressure before the fight because I love what I do. I never feel pressure in the fight, it's what I love to do. I feel pressure when I'm on diet and can't eat cookies," she told MMA News.
