Clean Diet

To maintain weight

She is into strength-training , uses the treadmill and elliptical, and boxes three times a week. She also does the  planks at home and jump rope. She also carries a skipping rope and when she is working she finds time to skip as quick work out when there is no gym.


After pregnancy

She got back to her usual workouts after 6 weeks of delivery. She also says that it’s important to get enough sleep because the body holds on to more calories when it's tired, and rest is important to weight loss. She also avoids using the lift and walks up 70 floors when she can.

Healthy habits

She drinks a homemade cleanse of two ounces of pure cranberry juice, six ounces of either green tea or plain water, one Vitamin C packet, and a teaspoon of fiber powder three times a day along with two to three liters of water a day.Apart from that she eats in moderation and enjoys her regular pizzas, nachos and cheese.
