Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin is showing fans her appetite as she enjoys some Chick-Fil-A.
The Russian-born former athlete and Dancing With the Stars alum has made headlines for clapping back at allegations that she doesn’t eat, and a recent Instagram share from her showed that she absolutely does. Nastia posted to her account and with some tasty fast food. The five-time Olympic gold medalist also chose a chain adored by singer Justin Bieber. She posted for her 1 million+ followers.
Enjoying Her Sandwich
Nastia updated her account from a table and while enjoying a tasty sandwich. The APL collaborator also showed off her trendy winter style as she posed at a booth and wearing a cream sweater, plus a shaggy brown coat. The blonde added in a fuzzy and dark brown bucket hat while brandishing a very tasty-looking sandwich with chicken and salad. She was even seen headed for the Ketchup. Nastia sent the camera a soft smile while rocking a matte face of makeup complete with some highlighter and blush. She also sported a pink lip, plus her blonde locks down. In a swipe right, the gymnast was seen tumbling around snow and having fun.
In a caption shouting out the New Year, Nastia Liukin wrote: “Closing out the year being my true authentic self.”

Clapping Back After Body Shaming
In October 2020, Nastia faced a fan who said she looked close to anorexic. Instead of ignoring the troll, Nastia shared the post and replied:
“This week I got a DM that really triggered me in so many ways,” adding: “It made me feel: defeated, pi–ed, sad, annoyed, confused, shocked, and many other feelings. If taking pictures of my OWN body — a body that won me many Olympic medals, a body that I push each day to get stronger, a body that God gave me — is inherently promoting anorexia, then honestly, we’ve gotten to a place in the world where just BEING is offensive.”
Nastia has updated her social media with pizza and regularly shows off a healthy appetite. She has also opened up about what she eats. Speaking to The Cut, the Moscow native revealed:
“I like to eat something very small beforehand, whether it’s a banana or a piece of fruit, and I have coffee. It was the same when I was in gymnastics. After my workout I’ll have a bigger breakfast,” adding that she might opt for an omelet. “Making sure to get enough protein in is extremely important for me to this day. It keeps you full longer,” she continued.
Nastia retired in 2012 and at the age of 22. For now, though, it’s all about that Chick-Fil-A sandwich moment!
