Fitness models and experts, just like everybody else, have to work hard to achieve their best physical form. Here, they share their diet and fitness secrets to better health and body.
From Meaghan Terzis: Boost Your Metabolism
Terzis suggests eating every 2-3 hours to get your metabolism working hard. As long as you are eating a healthy diet that consists of lean protein, healthy fats, fruits and vegetables, you are on the right track. To keep your diet in check during the holiday season when overeating is common, she suggests drinking plenty of water and going easy on the alcohol.
From Jessica Sicoly: Cooking For Yourself
Sicoly stays disciplined by cooking her own meals. That way she remains in control of what goes into the food she eats. She recommends eating real foods – whole and unprocessed stuff to maximize flavor and nutrients. She eats fresh berries, chicken, eggs, quinoa and oats, along with a variety of fresh vegetables.
From Holly Barker: Stick to the Winning Formula
Barker has a list of diet staples she swears by. These include oats, egg whites, chicken, fish, squash, nut butter, coconut oil and green veggies. The list of ingredients are basically the same but she switches up the way a meal is prepared by adding natural spices and herbs. She prefers fresh foods and avoids artificial sweeteners to prevent cravings.
From Keoni Hudoba: Do Cheat Days
Hudoba used to be an opera singer but turned to fitness after getting rejected at auditions due to his weight. He recommends giving yourself rewards for a job well done. It could be a single serving of ice cream, a small doughnut, or in Hudoba’s case, a salted caramel cupcake. He says it’s better to have a cheat day because it helps you avoid a cheat week.
From Angela Albright: Avoid Sugar
Sugar, according to Albright, is linked to cellulite and a number of health problems. Avoiding sugar helps her keep fit and prevent bingeing. Albright does not believe in counting calories but does like to eat several small meals a day, packing in as much as 25g of protein for each meal and mixing it with healthy natural fats, nuts and lots of green vegetables. She also likes to avoid alcohol and reduce her salt intake.
