Intuitive Eating

Lisa promotes "intuitive eating," explaining the principles in an Instagram post.

"Your relationship with food plays a key role in your overall fitness journey. Whilst it's good to have a sufficient understanding of your diet and nutrition, striving for the 'perfect' diet may lead to controlling or disordered eating habits. If you have eaten a cheeseburger, you do not have to feel guilty, skip your next meal or 'burn it off.' Instead, focus on the positives. You received a great source of iron, protein, carbs, calcium and you probably rather enjoyed it. You do not need to use exercise to negate eating but rather consume food for enjoyment, nourishment and to fuel workouts and recovery," she says.

Here Is How She "Builds" Healthy Meals


In another post, she explains "how to build a healthy and balanced meal," starting with a "good quality protein sources such as lean meat, a soya-based product such as tofu or tempeh, dairy or lentils, beans and edamame beans," she says. Next up, starchy carbohydrates, which "should make up just over a 1/3 of the food you eat," she explains.

"They are essential for energy and nutrients, therefore you should aim to include some at every meal. Low GI carbohydrates slowly release energy and are higher in fibre which means they will keep you fuller for longer. Some low GI options include potatoes with skin on, brown rice, wholemeal bread, wholemeal pasta, oats, and buckwheat."

Then, fill your plate "with a rainbow of non- starchy vegetables and dark leafy greens. Examples include broccoli, spinach, kale, peppers, cucumber, courgette, onion, aubergine, cauliflower, mushrooms, tomatoes and so on. Also be sure to include some fruit throughout the day as snacks or added to breakfast, etc," she adds. Finally, "Pick a small amount of healthy fats such as avocado, nuts, extra virgin olive oil, and seeds."

No Diets


Lisa doesn't like to label her eating plan. "I don't like to call it a diet as it's my lifestyle and not a diet. My nutrition has stayed the same, except some days I am increasing my calories as I am working out more, so I need to make sure I am fuelling my body right. I am doing LIVE Instagram workouts with my followers and challenging myself with new HIIT workouts alongside weight training (working with what I have) and my morning walks," she told Women Fitness

Walking in the Morning

While she spends a lot of time in the gym, Lisa starts her day with steps. "I do a 1 hour walk every morning. It helps with my mindset for the day and I think about everything I am grateful for. It's so calm, quiet and peaceful and it gets my mind going for the day. Always practice gratitude and always appreciate the little things in life," she added to Women Fitness. 

💪🔥Body Booster: Contrary to popular belief, crunches, and sit-ups aren't the best exercises to build abs. Try doing a set like Lisa's, which works all the muscles in your midsection, including obliques, and will get you the best results.
