Cath starts her day with lemon water mixed with glutamine powder. She’ll then have her breakfast which can be anything from eggs and oatmeal to steak and rice. She likes to keep things interesting, especially in the off-season since the cutting phase can get repetitive in terms of meals.
When preparing for a contest, Cath minimizes sugars, unhealthy fats, and everything else that could lead to weight gain.
However, regardless if she competes or not, Cath aims to eat yogurt or other probiotic foods every day to keep her gut health in check.
As for supplements, she sticks to the basics with omega-3s and multivitamins in addition to the aforementioned glutamine.
