This May 2, Cheslie Kryst was crowned Miss USA 2019 at the Grand Sierra Resort's Grand Theatre in Reno, Nevada. The 28-year-old lawyer reached the number one position beating 50 other women and took part in the show's four segments: swimsuit, evening gown, final question, and final word.
But, before receiving this coveted crown, Kryst spent weeks preparing for the competition. Besides tireless practice sessions and strict workout routines, Miss USA 2019 also followed a healthy diet to keep her body and mind fit ahead of the pageant.
INSIDER recently had a word with Kryst to learn more about the eating habits that helped her get that bod and finally achieving Miss USA competition.
Speaking to INSIDER, Kryst said she ate "almost the exact same thing every day" leading up to the pageant. "For breakfast every morning, I'd usually eat toast with egg and avocado," said Kryst. "I'm obsessed with avocado, even though it has a lot of fat in it. I love it, and it's good healthy fat."
She also kept her lunch meals constant, and typically ate "a salad with chicken." Eating such a specific diet was challenging at times, especially when she "had to do appearances and be on the road." But overall, "consistency" proved to be the key to her success. While her easy-going evening meal was typically grilled chicken with vegetables, the Miss USA winner also loves having dishes with rice.
"There was variety in vegetables," Kryst said. "I do like asparagus and brussel sprouts, and that kind of helped [add variety]. I could go to the grocery store and not really have to think, and just get the same things everyday."
Miss USA 2019 also had her snacks carefully. She enjoys "fresh food," while avoiding anything that's "really processed.""I would just pepper in some snacks every now and then — oranges, apples, bananas," Kryst said.
