Eat Healthy 80% of the Time
If you want a body like Gabby's you need to eat healthy…most of th time. "I try and follow the 80/20 rule, which is my approach to maintaining a healthy lifestyle rather than a diet philosophy. It's pretty simple, I try and eat well 80% of the time, and then 20% of the time I let myself enjoy a bit of indulgence. It isn't about counting calories, denying myself certain foods or cutting out entire food groups, and allows me to enjoy life without feeling guilty about breaking my 'diet,'" she told Galore.
Chug water, says Gabby. "Staying hydrated is my number 1 tip!" she told Galore. "Water also helps to flush out all the toxins in your system, especially with a bit of freshly squeezed lemon it. Coconut water and green tea are great for detoxing as well."
Pack Your Snacks
Gabby keeps healthy snacks with her at all times. "Preparation is key!" she says. When going to a music festival she packs them so she won't be tempted by high fat foods such as pizza and hot chips. "If I'm spending the whole day at the beach with friends we always make sure we pack an esky full of coconut water, fresh fruit, nuts and organic popcorn," she added to Galore.
Take a Multivitamin
Gabrielle is a big proponent of supplementing. "I also take a good-quality multivitamin daily. It's a great way to replenish your body of essential vitamins and minerals and to protect your general health," she told Galore.
Mix Up Your Workouts
When it comes to exercise, "I usually mix up my training with running, reformer Pilates, boxing, and yoga," she told Galore. "When I'm away I have 20-30 minute circuit programs that I can do in my hotel room or at a park if I don't have time to get to a gym – a short workout is always better than no workout at all."
Make Time for Movement
Gabby understands the importance of movement. "I try and set aside at least 45 minutes to an hour a day for some form of physical activity," she told Galore. "I also try and work physical activities into the itinerary – paddle boarding, surfing, hiking, and swimming are fun activities that will definitely help you keep fit! I also try and eat as healthy as I can on vacation and avoid consuming sugar, processed foods, alcohol and simple carbohydrates. No matter where you are there should be some kind of fresh high-protein, high-fiber food available."
Don't Cut Out Food Groups
Gabby told Galore that "cutting out whole food groups to lose weight" is a no-no in her book. "Healthy eating is all about balance, and your body needs a mix of proteins, healthy fats, fruits, vegetables and complex carbohydrates to function and work to its full potential. I think any diet that cuts out a whole food group is dangerous and can't be sustainable long-term. Eating healthy, nutritious food and exercising regularly is the best diet for a healthy lifestyle."
Rise and exercise, says Gabby! "I usually hit the gym by 5:30am/6am, and workout for an hour-1.5 hours, then I'll go home and eat breakfast and make a list of everything I need to do that day. Then usually work from home, or from my laptop at a coffee shop, and catch up with my family or my friends," she told Women Fitness. "I have always been a morning person, but I find I'm much more productive when I get up early and get everything I need to do out of the way as soon as possible to avoid procrastination and I'm a huge list person."
