On the importance of consuming plenty of fats:
I think the idea that fat is bad is complete bull. Fat is an extremely important macronutrient – we need it for healthy hormone function, strong hair, skin and nails, not to mention our need for fat soluble vitamins such as A, D, E and K. Plus it makes food taste delicious, and keeps us satiated. I am a huge advocate for healthy fat in our diets, and I wish it were less vilified. Where I feel we go wrong however, is the sources of fat that we choose to consume. When we eat large quantities of plant-derived oils such as palm seed oil, we throw out our ratios of Omega 3 to 6 to majorly favor Omega 6. This is not good; our diets should be skewed to favor Omega 3 as much as possible, in order to reduce inflammation, and maintain good general mental health. We want a 1.5:1 ratio ideally. Maintaining this ratio is tricky – vegetable oils are everywhere! Consuming high levels of fat from animal foods is not ideal either; a high intake of saturated fat can lead to heart disease and other complications down the line.
On what she eats:
I love avocado, olives and nuts. Walnuts and macadamia nuts in particular are a good hook up of omegas. When cooking I choose a high quality olive oil or avocado oil. If you eat fish, enjoy wild salmon regularly. A good, high quality algae oil is a great call for the vegans out there – just to make sure you hit your requirements. Plant-based food sources contain the precursor ALA, and it has a low conversion rate to the important DHA – so make sure you supplement here!
On preferring fats to carbs:
I eat a lot of fat in my diet. I tend to avoid refined carbohydrates, and I make up for it by eating a higher level of fat in my diet. I could never ever be a HCLF person – my digestion just isn’t strong enough for all those carbohydrate spikes! Every person is different, and it is up to you to find out how much of each macronutrient ensures you feel the best. Nut butters are delicious and a great travel snack. My only issue with them is to ensure that there aren’t any other oils, salt or sugar added. I also find sticking to single serves ideal, because that stuff is moreish!
On her motto:
Eat real food, not too much, mostly plants.

On getting fillers but rocking natural assets:
I’ve done lasers and got [filler] injections under my eyes for the hollowing – which I’d recommend for everyone who wants a solution for their dark circles – but all of my assets are real. People tend to think they are fake, but it doesn’t really matter. We’re getting away from that negative stigma about physical alterations. Of course, always be your authentic self – but if someone wants a nose job that makes them feel better, and they love their profile more because of it, it’s like: “Go ahead!”
On her diet:
I love food, and sometimes if I’m in a bad mood, all I’ll want is the classic ice cream from McDonalds that tastes the same no matter what country you’re in. In the past year, I’ve eaten better than I have ever eaten – less fast food, less sugar ‘ and the sustainability of my body is so much better. My face just glows.
On cutting her hair:
Cutting my hair meant I didn’t have to hide behind it. My face really stands out [now], and I actually feel a lot prettier with my short hair. I’ve really gotten to know my face better.

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.”
