Q: Do you follow a certain diet?
I do not follow a certain diet, specifically, but I do eat gluten-free and try to avoid eating a lot of diary. My number one rule is to try and eat “real” foods as much as possible. What that means is I try to eat tons of veggies, fruits, meat, fish, rice, & other grains. No processed foods, besides my occasional “cheat” days which are also so important for staying on track during the week! I also normally have at least 1 square of dark chocolate a day because I have a huge sweet tooth. Instead of restricting sugar entirely from my diet, I just have a small bite of chocolate  to curb my craving. At the end of the day, it’s all about finding a balance-but that is harder said than done. I think if you’re trying to get on a healthier track try to eat only “real” foods: for a week or two cut out anything you eat from a package/that is processed. Stick to simple and fresh ingredients!
