Share the diet that you follow to remain healthy and physically fit? Five foods you absolutely love and five you keep it to a minimum.
I would not call it a diet, I like to think that i am allowed to eat everything, but I am smart about it and opt for the more-healthy options.
For example, I choose not to eat bread, sugar or any sodas because I just know how bad those products make me look and make my stomach feel, so I don’t want it. Of course I can have a Croissant in the morning or have a glass of champagne here and there, but I would never choose Sprite or a cappuccino, or juices (unless they are 100% freshly squeezed) over the water knowing how much sugar and calories they contain.
I allow fat in my diet, but I only eat healthy fats (such as avocado, olive oil, oily fish, eggs, peanut butter), protein (both animal and plant) and complex carbs. I love to use Almond milk (I think it is more healthy than cow’s milk), almond flour (if i want to bake), and Stevia as a sweetener.
5 foods I love:
- Fish and seafood
- Buckwheat and quinoa
5 foods I try to keep to a minimum:
- Bread and bakery (anything that has white flour)
- Sugar (absolutely hate it, it literally kills us)
- – Milk (doesn’t digest well by adults and can make us unwell/tired. Milk is made by cows just to feed their calves for a short amount of time only; it is not made for human bodies!)
- Red meat (just feels very heavy to digest)
- Fast carbs (makes our sugar and insulin level jump up and down)
Your daily hair care and skincare routine? Five skincare myths.
For my hair, the thing that plays the biggest role is the shampoo, as silly as it sounds… Since started dying my hair blond, I could not figure out what (besides the bleaching) was killing my hair making it so dry. I was doing endless masks, applying oils but nothing would help make my hair soft until I started using a very good gentle moisturizing shampoo – to be specific TSUBAKI Shiseido Extra Moist Shampoo – it literally saved my hair and I swear by it! I realised the wrong shampoo can dry out your hair worse than a dye itself, so using the right one is very important.
For skincare, I just wash my face with a gentle face cleaning gel/soap, and use a moisturizing cream in the morning and Vitamin C serum at night. I used to have a very bad skin years ago, i literally tried all the existing skincare brands in the World and, to my surprise, I discovered the Obagi brand makes absolutely outstanding products. I use two of them always: OBAGI Professional – C serum (it’s an oily serum with added vitamin C that makes skin smooth and glowing), and OBAGI salicylic acid toner (it cleans the skin and makes the pores smaller). I also only use water-based make up – not anything oil based.
5 skincare myths:
- You don’t need a sunscreen if you are not under the hot sun
- You don’t need moisturizer if you have oily skin
- Eating chocolate and oily food causes bad skin and acne
- Tanning is good for you and increases the level of vitamin D
- you don’t need sunscreen if you are wearing make-up with SPF”
