How I Stay Lean!" target="_blank">

Intermittent Fasting (I usually fast from 8pm until noon the next day)... this is the 16:8 method.
Core Power Yoga (I usually go daily)
Avoid Negative Vibes / Negative People
Surround myself around like-minding people
Pure Barre (great small micro-movements or a lean/toned body, and it is low impact so easy on the back and the joints)
Eat mostly plant-based foods (veggies)
Drink water
Drink Green Tea (I like mine with honey)
Take Epsom Salt Baths at night to get Magnesium and recover
Sleep 8-9 hours nightly!
Walk outside
Eat chicken or fish or tofu instead of beef for protein
I love eating protein bars (right now I'm super into Pegan bars by Julian Bakery)" target="_blank">

Intermittent Fasting

My secret to being in the best shape ever!!


Intermittent Fasting may slightly boost metabolism while helping you eat fewer calories. It's a very effective way to lose weight and belly fat.

Intermittent Fasting is my favorite method for reducing body fat because it allows me to go about my day, work, train clients, teach yoga, do e-mails, etc, and not have to worry about eating! I personally do the 16:8 method, where I fast 16 hours and eat during an 8 hour window. 

A Typical day looks like this:


6:30 AM BEAUTY SUPERFOOD COFFEE  (I add Collagen Powder, and Plant-Based Dairy Free Almond Milk Vanilla Creamer!) Some days I will have Green Tea instead.

(During this time, I add BCAA's to my water, and hydrate a lot), I may also drink more coffee or tea as well. 

9 or 10 AM Depending how I'm feeling or if I exercised yet with clients or not, I will have a green juice or a carrot juice around this time that I pack with me in the AM.

12 PM FASTED WORKOUT - usually Pure Barre OC every day.  Sometimes I might lift at the gym and go for a long walk instead.

1:30 PM Break Fast! I will usually have a green smoothie, with things likes coconut butter, spinach, pineapple, super food green powder, chia seeds, and maybe some almonds or plant based protein powder.
Other things I will have for this meal are lentils, purple yams, korean radish, brown rice with beans and guacamole bowl, acai bowl with peanut butter, burger lounge Organic Quinoa Veggie Burger Lettuce Wrapped, Veggie Soup, or hummus with veggies.

5:15 PM - 6:15 PM HOT VINYASA FLOW YOGA PRACTICE (Drink water during) sometimes I add more bcaa's to my water. If I need energy I will have a Tosi nut bar as a snack.

7 PM If I am hungry I will have a vegetable based meal such as; Pho veggie tofu soup, lettuce wrapped quinoa veggie burger, a big salad with tons of delicious stuff in it, curry tofu with veggies and brown rice, hummus with veggies, brown rice and bean bowl. I may also have a chamomile or peppermint tea =)
