On her 2000 calories / day lifestyle:
Over the years during my career I heard so many comments … “she probably starves herself etc” I have always eaten anything I wanted. I maintain a diet of 2000 calories a day no matter if I workout that day or not. I make sure to workout 2-5 times a week depending on my schedule.
On how she never gets lazy:
I don’t get lazy even when tired after work or on a vacation ….I find time to be active. It’s called being ambitious and dedicated. It’s a choice. For those that don’t follow that please don’t judge those that choose to be fit.
On how there are no excuses for not being fit:
There is absolutely no excuse in not staying fit and healthy at any age! Motivation and drive is the key. If u love yourself you will find the determination within yourself to get off the sofa and make a change in your life and not judge others that do.

On her healthy lifestyle and finding balance:
“I try to keep it a fine balance. I eat a lot of vegetables, obviously, like there’s no secret to it — what everyone tells you, eat your veggies, lean protein, fish mostly, but also be able to have a meal that you enjoy. Whether it’s a burger or pizza, whatever it is, and just work out regularly. Like I work out five to six days a week for an hour at least, and I do it because I feel better after. Not just because it’s supposed to be good for you, but I like it, I like the way I feel.”
… says 25 year-old Nina.

On turning against protein:
“I eat a ton more during a tournament. Lately, I’ve been off the protein train—even vegan protein. That’s something new I’m trying. I’m not necessarily convinced we need as much protein as they say. And I still feel good. I think it’s all about how you feel and finding out what works for your body. I do shakes and smoothies—they’re easy and quick. I love it. Different varieties, green ones, pink ones, red ones, all different colors with lots of fruits and veggies.”

On practicing ‘intermittent fasting’:
I always leave 12-14 hours between my last bite of food at night, and my first bite of food in the morning. I guess you could call this intermittent fasting – but I have never really been a big breakfast person. If I eat a large breakfast I find I am starving again in a couple of hours, and in need of a nap. Leaving time for my system to wake up makes me feel good, so I do it. I am not religious about this though; if I wake up ravenous/jetlagged, I eat. Basically, if the sun is up, I eat. If it is dark, I don’t.
On drinking over a gallon of water a day:
First thing I drink about two liters of water. This habit took a bit of training – but it is the best! I aim for just over one gallon of water a day, and if I hit two liters first thing, it puts me on track for the day. Plus it helps to re-hydrate you after a night of sleeping. I sweat a lot during the day from my training, and make sure I get enough electrolytes through Himalayan sea salt and other foods.
On not being a fan of protein:
Every meal, the hero is vegetables. I eat a lot of them every single day. I hate our societies obsession with protein – if we were as obsessed with hitting our fiber needs, I believe the diseases of affluence would be greatly reduced. With obesity rates skyrocketing, I wonder if people will start to make the connection that getting your protein in is killing them slowly. Having said that; I do make sure that with each meal I am having a serving of tofu or beans. No steaks here – and I am yet to die of a protein deficiency! Or yet to meet any other vegans with one either for that matter…
On ‘indulging’ in sweet potatoes and vegan ice-cream:
Finally, if I crave it, I eat it! I don’t subscribe to the cheat meal thing, as it tends to perpetuate the notion that some food is “naughty” and that you are “naughty” for eating it. If I want some vegan ice cream, or sweet potato fries I go for it. Life is short and food rules!
