UFC Star Karolina Kowalkiewicz Shares Swimsuit Photo "Recharging"
Karolina Kowalkiewicz is heating up South Florida in her swimsuit. In one of her latest social media posts the UFC star shows off her super fit figure in a black bathing suit, sitting poolside in Boca Raton. "Recovering and battery charging between trainings," she captioned the Instagram post. "Bronze queen," commented one of her followers, while many others left fire emojis. How does the athlete maintain her fit figure? A healthy diet is one of the key ways. Here is everything she eats in a day.
Eggs and Tofu
Kowalkiewicz, who suffers from Hashimoto's disease, adopted a vegan diet in 2019. She maintains that it helps with her inflammation and pain. Because Karolina eats vegan she has to plan her meals carefully. Her diet is filled with a lot of eggs, which she eats fried, boiled, and scrambled and tofu.
Karolina regularly cooks up huge pots of soup, filled with veggies, grains, and protein. She shares her recipes via her Instagram Stories.
Water and Energy Drinks
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 also drinks Monster energy drinks to fuel her workouts.
Karolina loves coffee. "High Five," she captioned a post of herself with a cup of Joe. 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.
Protein Pancakes and Fruit
For breakfast you will often find Karolina cooking up some protein pancakes, which she tops with lots of berries like strawberries and blueberries, packed full of antioxidants.
