A Transformation Story!

Tell me a little about yourself and why you decided to make a change to your health?

I've somehow always had careers that had to do with physique, wether it was modelling, teaching yoga, or hard physical labor like welding and construction. But when I ended up in Los Angeles with a partner I barely knew and a baby on the way I really put my body on the backburner. Financial stress, anxiety and postpartum, and with Covid added on top of that I really let myself go to the point where it started to affect my work. I ended up being badly injured earlier this year, after which I decided it was time to start taking care of my body again in order to minimize accidents and risks at work.

How long did it take you to achieve your results?

12 Weeks

What made you want to start?

I started off with lower back pains which were immediately addressed through building a lot of back strength. This helped me achieve better posture at the workshop and I'm less prone to mistakes. That alreay was a huge win. And as my body kept progressing the idea of going back to modelling work started to become more of a reality. I just signed with Vision Los Angeles, Touche Models in Amsterdam and Kult Models in Hamburg. So we're going in the right direction. It's been a life altering journey, getting me back on track.

What are your favorite health and fitness blogs, books or magazines that you read?

I don't really have the time to do that. So I just fire all the questions I have at Adam, haha. But if you have any recommendations, I'd love to hear them.

What is your favorite healthy food to eat? What is the recipe?

Tumeric potatoes, moong dahl with rice, baked broccoli, sprouts and cauliflower and two parts of tuna. Yum!

What is your least favorite health food to eat?

Asparagus. I just can't seem to get those green things right.

What is your favorite cheat meal?

Greasy barbecue food, chocolate and red wine!

Do you take any supplements?

Yes, I take Magnesium, Zinc, Omega 3 Fish oil, Pre-workout, Protein powder

When it comes to eating healthy, what are your top 3 recommendations?

Mmm. Use a lot of spices to flare up your meals, so even the dull stuff becomes a feast. That makes it much more fun and there is so much to learn! Second, if things become too hard just think of food as fuel. For me that really helped. Third, if your budget allows it purchase at local indian stores or farmers markets for a bit better produce.
