Summer is well on its way and I bet you are all trying out new diets and exercise routines to keep your bikini body up to shape. To help you out I thought I’d give you a few of my own tips and recipes that I use to keep slim and healthy.
1. For breakfast I enjoy having something light but also full of fibre and plenty of nutrients to get me through the day. Bircher muesli is the best for this as it is full of good fibre, vitamins and plenty of calcium.

2. When carbohydrates are not used up they turn into fat stores in the body. That’s why it is important to limit your carbohydrate intake as the day progresses. Your body needs to burn off all the carbs before you go to sleep so it doesn’t turn into fat. For Lunch I usually have plenty of salad. This can either be in a wrap, sandwich or by itself and almost always with a bit of meat (usually chicken) for protein. Salads are always good to eat, as they are full of water and minerals and almost no fat.

3. Dinner is the last meal of the day and should contain very little or no carbs as we cannot burn it off before we sleep. Stay away from pasta and rice dishes (a little on the side is ok). It is also good to have lots of meat or eggs as they give us protein for strong toned muscles and the best thing about protein is it doesn’t turn into fat if it is not used. I like to have a stir-fry, meat and veggies, soup or a vegetarian frittata for dinner.
