Guided by Arthur's recommendations, here's what the "fittest woman on Earth" eats in a day:
As soon as Tia wakes up (usually around 7 am or as early as 5:30 am), she hydrates. "I have a glass of water and a squeeze of lemon in it to give it a bit of flavour," she says. She follows that up with two Goli Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies.
"I’ll sometimes have oats with blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries," Tia told Women's Health. "I also really like scrambled eggs with turkey bacon and avocado and sourdough toast. That’s my go-to, favourite thing to have." The proteins and fats keep Tia feeling full until her next meal.
Tia's go-to lunch: stir fry. "I really love to cook up a stir fry with all the vegetables," Tia told Women's Health. "I can put in as many vegetables as I like, and then add a different source of protein." She cooks that all up with coconut oil. "I stay away from other oils," Tia added. "Pure coconut oil has a bit of flavour, 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."
While stirfries are the go-to, Tia will sometimes switch up her lunch, opting for steak with asparagus and potatoes, or eggs on a bagel. "We're just trying to make sure that I'm fuelling the body with wholesome ingredients of fruit, vegetables, and good proteins, like chicken steak, or fish."
"A nice go-to dinner is cooked up kale with salt sprinkled over it, and a slice of salmon or steak," Tia says. "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." Tia aims to eat dinner around 7:00 pm to give herself time to unwind before bedtime at 9:00 pm.
"I’m constantly keeping my body fueled so I’m never feeling hungry," Tia says, adding she always has fuel on hand before and after her workouts. "Prior to training I have Fuel for Fire," she says, which are protein smoothies in a squeezable pouch. Otherwise, Tia grabs a banana for energy during competition.
After workouts, she digs into leftovers from her lunch earlier in the day. She keeps a container in her gym bag just in case. "I’ve put my body through a strenuous training session, and it will be looking for food to help with recovery," Tia says. "I don’t have a huge meal but enough to provide the body with fuel it's looking for after the session."
