What does your typical day look like?
I have been very active since I was at school and exercise is a great stress reliever for me. I have two fox red Labradors and usually start my day very early by taking them out for a walk. Then when I can, I am off to the gym to do a spin class or a swim.
Do you do this on an empty stomach?
Typically I won’t eat until 11 or 12 and this way of life really suits me. People think I am crazy not to eat before this but it is a pattern that works for me. I often get asked what my secret is, particularly by the trainers in the gym, and I tell them that the In-Sync lifestyle is all about the management of meals around your exercise routine.
How easy is it to prepare your first meal of the day when you come in from the gym and you must be ravenous?
I eat a lot of salads and they are easy to prepare – I really focus on making rainbow salads with colourful vegetables including peppers and I will tend to have avocado. With my salad I usually have eggs and I make a dressing with olive oil and apple cider vinegar. I also eat lots of fish and bake it in the oven in parchment paper to prevent it from drying out. The beauty of cooking fish in this way is that I add lots of garlic, ginger, spring onion, broccoli, fresh herbs etc and it creates such a lovely aroma. I am lucky because I am able to spend some of my time down in Salcombe in Devon where I can get access to lots of fresh fish.
How has keeping In-Sync benefited you?
I recently had a health check and was delighted to find my cholesterol had come down and my blood pressure was absolutely fine. The In-Sync Diet could not have come at a better time for me as I was in my forties and starting to find it more difficult to stay in shape despite all my exercise. I had always been very active but I was beginning to lose my grip on my weight. Now I feel more toned and healthy and it has become a way of life.
The In-Sync lifestyle has given me a real focus that I can take with me through to the next stage of my life and I hope to share this knowledge with my children because it really does work.
