How I Eat, Train and Maintain My Eight-Pack Abs
I’ve never tried any specific diets in my life, also I’ve never counted any intakes, etc. Nevertheless, I follow some rules as I want to be a healthy person and I have intolerances to gluten, lactose, eggs, pork, beef and some other difficult to avoid daily products.

I'm a Pole Dancer. This Is How I Kept Training after Losing the Use of My Hands
I used to be very strict with my food — no gluten, no sugar, no dairy etc- that was the only way to alleviate my eczema. But now, post-cancer, I’m a bit more flexible with my food. Hey, life is short, I’m gonna eat cake on my birthday.

This is How My Pregnancy Got Me into Fitness and Nutrition
I don’t eat meat, dairy or gluten if I can avoid it, I do. Although I have a strong sweet tooth and my favourite chocolate is full dairy milk packed fruit & nut ☺ not the best for health but good for the soul.

I'm a Yoga and AcroYoga Teacher. This is How I Eat, Train and Practice
My diet is far from perfect. I know what makes me good. Which is no gluten, less sugar, and cooked vegetables. I think everybody is different when it comes to the needs of his or her body, so one good thing is to try out different dishes, reflect how you feel afterward and read a lot about nutrition.

How I Help Women Transform Their Bodies and Live a Sustainable Fitness Lifestyle
I’m allergic to gluten and dairy (sensitivities showed up after my second baby) so those items are not included in my life-giving foods. Generally, I stick to veggies, lean proteins, healthy fats and moderate complex carbohydrates. Treat meals work really well for me and I like to have 1 or 2 per week.
