Cody revealed he now eats a high protein diet, in order to fuel his body before hitting the pool.
‘I start abruptly with a 5am alarm and make a wrap with peanut butter and banana,’ he said, explaining his quick breakfast.
Cody said he has to be in the water by 6am, doing four hours in the pool most days. He also does 60 to 90 minutes in the gym, three times a week.

The singer said after practice he usually has a protein shake along with avocado on toast, and also tries to eat a lot of fish.
‘I love to eat fish and veggies to get healthy protein and carbs… [And] a slow-burning carb that will last me throughout the night,’ he explained.
Cody said he has upped his intake of food, eating three to four times more than he did prior to Olympic training.
He said he tried to eat a lot of ‘plant-based and pescatarian’ foods.
