I’m still eating pizza or cakes sometimes but I eat healthy most of the time. I think that’s the key to maintain a healthy eating habits, It’s all about finding a balance. Eat healthy but allow yourself to eat a burger, or pizza from time to time.
What do you do now to maintain your physique?
I was also doing weights training 3 times a week and cardio 3-4 times a week. My cardio mostly consist of HIIT (high intense interval workout). I’m now trying to gain lean muscle with as little fat as possible so I do weight lifting 4 times a week and do cardio twice a week to minimize fat gain.
What advice do you have for someone looking to get started with their fitness journey but not sure where to begin?
My advice to anyone who want to start training is don’t be afraid to be a beginner, you’ll learn. You can start by changing your diet that’s the biggest step and start watching home workouts video on YouTube and train at home. Also don’t be afraid to get a gym membership, everybody there is trying to become better and no one will laugh at you for trying. If you don’t know how a machine works just ask anyone they’ll be happy to help you.
