She Dabbles in Keto

Laura "dips in and out of" the keto lifestyle and "doesn't keep to it all the time," she told Express. She says the approach to health "should be a lifestyle" instead of a "diet" and maintains that "life is all about balance." She will "have a glass of wine or whatever" and loves eating "an omelet with bacon and cheese for breakfast." For lunch she enjoys "salmon with cauliflower rice, or a steak salad with lots of broccoli and spinach."


She Runs

As for fitness, sometimes she likes to "go for a run," she told Express. "Weirdly I prefer to run on the running machine." According to the Mayo Clinic, running – either outside or on the treadmill – is great for cardiovascular health, muscle building, and weight loss. "For every mile run, the average person will burn approximately 100 calories," they say. 


She Focuses on Diet and Exercise Equally

"You can exercise as much as you like, but unless you follow a really healthy lifestyle and eating plan, then if you want to see results, you've got to have a healthy and balanced way of eating," Laura explained to Express. "There's no point exercising five days a week and then eating a load of rubbish. It's sort of pointless. It's about what you put into your body as much as what you're actually doing with it."


She Goes to the Gym

"I love to exercise. I go to the gym, and over the pandemic I was doing loads of online workouts," Laura told Express. She prefers lifting weight at the gym over going for a walk outside. She also likes exercising in the morning. "It gives me loads of energy and sets me up for the day," she says. In addition to helping her stay in shape, exercise "makes you feel good," she added. "It releases endorphins. I would say to make a habit out of it. If you can make it part of your daily routine, once you stop you'll miss it and you'll be like, I need to do it, I need to do it," Laura added.


She Cycles

Laura enjoys cycling. "I've just bought myself an Echelon bike, so I'm going to be able to do some workouts at home with that," she told Express. She also enjoys heading outside and "going for a bike ride with the kids." "Pedaling a bike strengthens the leg muscles, especially the quadriceps that form the top of the thigh. But for the most part, cycling is an aerobic, not a resistance, workout — the kind of exercise that gets you breathing harder and your heart rate up and pays cardiovascular dividends. The cardiovascular effects of running and cycling are pretty similar, although running may make the heart work a little harder. In trained triathletes, the maximum heart rate while cycling tends to be about six to 10 beats per minute lower than the rate while running," says Harvard Health.
