Bikini season is upon us, and many of you have asked me how I control my weight.
It’s tough, and I have no miracle diet to reveal today, sorry. I practice a nutritional regime: 80% raw food, and 20% protein (fish, poultry, beef). First of all, the winters in New York will take a good woman down and convert her into a bear in hibernation, so I eat lots of soups to stay warm.
This is a typical week meal plan:
hot water with lemon
Matcha Green tea with soy milk
2 tablespoons of chia seeds
2 tablespoons of Aloe Vera Juice
a handful of blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries
16 oz of Green juice with kale, apple, lemon, beets, and spinach
some days, I eat two hard-boiled eggs, or an omelette
Kale salad with avocado, or tuna tartar, salmon, or soup
Some weeks I steam broccoli with cauliflower and add some parmesan cheese for zest
Walnuts, Almonds (very little almonds as I breakout on my chin), raw pumpkin seeds, raw sunflower seeds, raw cashews, or Brazilian nuts
Baked, grilled, broiled, fish, or chicken with vegetables.
Right before bed I drink spearmint, dandelion, or chamomile tea with one tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar.
When I am traveling, I go off the rails and eat every carb in sight, especially in Europe. Oh, those French croissants always lure me into bakeries.
3 days Elliptical for 30 min, yoga, pilates and over 2 mile (3.21 km) daily walks
I am not perfect, and I struggle daily to maintain a healthy weight. The trick is to make healthy eating a habit, so your cravings will only creep up on you once in a while.
Sending healthy loving vibes for the weekend! 💋
