What I like to eat..

A lot of you wish to know what my diet is, or what I am eating over the day, it’s pretty simple, I do not follow any strict regime or ‘diet’ I do what my body tells me to as it does know what and when I need something, it is very important to listen to your body, as the saying goes ”You are what you eat” I know myself if I have eaten some chocolate or some candy this will show on my face I will get some lovely spots. I also know if I have eaten something that has been fried it shows around my stomach. However if I eat properly with a good balance of protein, staple carbs with fresh fruit or vegetables, I can see results quite quickly, my skin will feel full of life my abdominal muscles will start to show nicely and generally I feel well and healthy.

Below is a few examples of things I like to eat, please note that as previously mentioned I am no nutritionist, and my examples are very basic and sometimes I fall off track and have myself something that I know is bad for me but I usually try to redeem myself very quickly with a quick detox to flush it all out or I will train extra hard to sweat it all out, we are all human and I personally know that having the will power is very difficult, but the most important thing to remember is – if you fall get right back up and continue!

Cooking & Seasoning:
I always use a non fat cooking spray if I pan fry, try to use as little salt as possible, I love love LOVE pepper all variations, I use Cayenne pepper often to spice things up.

Beverages:
Water. Period.
I do love sparkling water with lemon but try to keep it to a minimum as it bloats me right up.
