Is there any health or diet practice you wish you had known when you were younger?
Eat carbs moderately.
What is the best health tip/advice your mother gave you?
Not to eat too much. I used to get upset when she stopped me from eating too much when I was younger. She said I would understand when I was older.
Today, what is your recipe for good health?
Three less, three more: Less salt, less sugar, less oil, more fibre, more exercise, more smiles.
What’s always in your fridge or store cupboard to help you keep on track and how do you benefit from them?
Fruit! I love fruit, particularly mango. My mother-in-law will always stock up mango for me. But since it has lots of sugar, I only eat it moderately. If, by the end of the week, we still have lots of fruit, I get to drink fruit smoothie.
One thing I never fail to replenish every time I go grocery shopping is cereals. I make sure I bring some along on a long car trip so that I will not stop to buy junk food or starve myself.
My trainer’s advice was to always eat on time... the cereal deters me from bingeing and has officially become my version of “junk food”.
What’s always in your medicine cabinet and why?
Gastric pills. I have a history of gastric issues but for the past year, the attacks seem to have disappeared. It probably has a lot to do with eating on time and on schedule.
What’s your favourite home health remedy?
Honey and apple cider vinegar. I did a lot of research before I tested it. Now I drink it every morning.
What’s your favourite fitness routine
It’s not easy to make time to exercise but I take 15 minutes in-between my favourite shows and run on the treadmill. I am not trying to achieve a supermodel figure. I just want to stay healthy and it’s not about how much or how hard we are doing it. It’s about just doing it!
