The Easy Eating Plan I've Been Swearing by This Summer

Sunday, September 4, 2016



A career girl knows she expends a lot of energy throughout the day, rushing from home to work, to meetings, to the gym. One thing is for sure, staying active and eating right is definitely the key to staying in good shape and achieving #bodygoals in a just a few weeks.

Being a bit of a foodie (read here, completely obsessed with food!) myself, I've never really been into dieting to reach my goal weight or get the figure that I want. I mean, let's be honest here: I love eating and I love eating good food, so there really is no point in eating stuff I don't like in order to get the results that I want.

Which is why over the Summer, I worked on a carefully curated eating plan that would meet daily nutritional requirements and my insatiable taste for gastronomy. And this Summer has been one of my best bikini body seasons ever! Here’s an excerpt of my guide to eating smart all week long…
