The 34-year-old is racing around the world as a cyclist and when she is not on her bike, she spends her time running marathon
An early start is a given for the athlete, because she not only needs sufficient training time, but also spends part of her day coaching other people.
As a famous & # 39; morning person & # 39; Lori said she woke up at 6 a day and didn't need an alarm.
Her day begins with a bottle of chilled water that is pre-mixed with Athletic Greens (a dietary supplement in powder form) and a series of supplements.
For maximum energy, Lori likes to enjoy a caffeine hit in the form of a double espresso made with a mix of goat and oat milk, collagen, cayenne pepper and raw sugar
Prior to training, she will prepare a caffeine hit in the form of a double espresso made with a mix of goat and oat milk, collagen, cayenne pepper and raw sugar.
As she is currently training for a marathon, she said she is on the road for a 20-kilometer jog and when this is done, you go home for breakfast.
Lori after the run enjoys a ready-made almond milk smoothie from Daily Harvest, including a scoop of whey protein or alternatively she opts for overnight oats.

Lori revealed that lunch is her biggest meal of the day because she believes it is better to eat more food earlier.
& # 39; I fully believe in & # 39; pre-load the day & # 39; (get more calories early) and I don't like having a snack all day, & # 39; she told Sporteluxe.
She said she likes nothing more than a & # 39; very colorful and large salad or cereal & # 39; full of lots of vegetables, nuts, seeds and proteins.
Usually this meal is accompanied by an alkaline or sparkling water.

Lori & # 39; s shared her afternoons just as busy as her mornings while coaching a cross-country running team.
She said this is something where she has to run a few extra pounds, so after a session she will add a small bar of protein.
At 7 p.m. she will be a & # 39; small & # 39; prepare supper and say that she is trying to hold this meal, because there is nothing worse than going to bed with a full stomach.

& # 39; Usually I have grilled vegetables, steak with grass and potatoes. If not, it's a variation on the salad or cereal I had for lunch, & Lori said.
Although she is a health fanatic, a glass of wine or a mezcal negroni is not on the menu during cooking.
After dinner, & # 39; if she gives in to herself & # 39 ;, she has a square of dark chocolate for dessert.
Lori said she understands that her way of eating may not be suitable for everyone, but it works well for her lifestyle and training requirements
Before going to sleep and making sure she is hydrated all night, she will drink a glass of water or herbal tea.

& # 39; My eating style is diverse and focuses on quality; I eat animal protein, but I like being plant-ahead, mine has different dairy and non-dairy milk options, and grains are not prohibited, but gluten is. & # 39;
