Katie Piper Shares Swimsuit Photo From Cornwall
Katie Piper is crushing it in Cornwall in her swimsuit. In one of her latest social media posts, the Loose Women panelist shows off her amazing body in a bathing suit. "Cornwall you treat a girl well," she captioned the series of Instagram snaps. How does the working mom maintain her fit physique? Read on to see 5 of Katie Piper's top diet and fitness tips for staying in shape and the photos that prove they work.
Do Intermittent Fasting
Katie is a fan of intermittent fasting, only drinking water and coffee in the morning and only eating until 5 PM. "Eating within that window takes some adjusting to, but it forces structure in a really good way," she told Women's Health. "It stops me from having dinner at 9pm and then not being able to digest my food properly, then having a late night instead of an early start for training."
Keep Exercise Simple But Effective
"When I have the odd hour to myself, I use that time to focus on me, which I haven't felt guilty about and don't think you should too. I used some of that time to get help and motivation from a personal trainer, but my daily exercise regime has been focused around my home workouts from @thehealthyhappymumplan," Katie explained in an Instagram post. "Simple, effective exercises you can do anywhere with no equipment. They have been perfect for those days that turn into night as they take no longer than 25 minutes."
Make Exercise a Daily Habit
"When I'm busy I tend to train two or three times a week, but I like to train up to four or five times if I can," Katie told Best Fit. "My fitness routine has changed a bit since I became a mother. Before I would do a lot of road running and enter a lot of races for my charity. I'd also do weights at the gym. Now, when I have free time I tend to have my daughter with me, so I'll train in my kitchen with a personal trainer."
She Exercises for Her Health
"When I was younger I trained for vanity reasons, so attempting to look good in clothes. I wanted to be fit and muscly, but that has changed a lot after everything that has happened," Katie told Best Fit. "I now place a greater emphasis on my health. The stronger and fitter I am the quicker I feel I can bounce back from surgery. I honestly believe that if I wasn't fit when I had my serious injuries I'm not sure if I would have pulled through the way I did."
Do HIIT Workouts
Katie is a big proponent of HIIT workouts, as it requires very little equipment. "If I'm traveling with work I can do it in my hotel room. It also suits my personality; I love the explosiveness of it. I love burpees, mountain climbers, drips, TRX and star jumps. I do a bit of boxing as well, maybe 20 minutes to end a session where, for example, I'll do upper cuts to failure, to get my heart going," she told Best Fit.
