Here's What Simone Biles Actually Eats In A Day While Training

Simone Biles continues to make headlines as a decorated Olympic athlete. The gymnast recently became the first woman to land the Yurchenko double pike, a very difficult maneuver that involves a roundoff, a back handspring, and finishing with a double backflip (via CNN). With her incredible athletic accomplishments, many have wondered what Biles eats during the day to keep her performance ready. The famous competitor is currently training for the 2021 Olympics with a daily workout and diet regime, with six to seven hours in the gym on practice days.

"I eat what I feel good with and try not to overeat or stuff myself because I'm always at the gym," Biles told Women's Health. Tracking her diet is also not a priority for Biles because she believes it is important to maintain a healthy relationship with food. In fact, her most recent collaboration with Uber Eats and Queer Eye's Jonathan Van Ness highlights her love for ordering food (via Insider). Who knew delivery would be a part of her routine.

These are the foods Simone Biles eats for each meal

You know what they say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. However, when you are an Olympic athlete waking up at the crack of dawn, you may not have time for a bite to eat.

The weekends give her more freedom, as waffles, eggs, or cinnamon rolls are her go-to breakfast. After her morning workout, the Olympian drinks a protein shake (half after her first practice and half after her second practice). 

Then it's onto lunch, where Uber Eats comes in handy as she orders delivery for everything from sushi to a pepperoni pizza. "It doesn't even matter if I don't win a self-gold, after every meeting I have pizza," Biles admitted. "Pepperoni pizza" (via Fitness Reaper). When it comes to snacks, the athlete likes to eat fruit that include grapes, strawberries, and watermelon. Next up is dinner, which is after her second gym session of the day. Spoon University claims her favorite meal is a full plate of salmon, rice, and carrots in order to hit all of the main food groups. Clearly, a meal fit for champions!
