WHAT’S YOUR TYPICAL MEAL? Chicken salad. It is a quick meal packed with antioxidants and protein, and the small number of calories is great for weight loss or maintenance.

 WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE DRINK?  Water. It has zero calories with many health benefits, including weight loss. I drink a glass before every meal – it helps me with portion control because it makes me feel fuller.      

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE DISH?  Pasta, lean mince, and veggies. I like quick, healthy meals. I use whole-wheat   pasta to increase my daily fibre intake, the veggies provide me with my daily vitamin and mineral requirements, and the lean mince is easy and quick to prepare and a good protein option.
