She Works With A Consultant

McCutcheon revealed on Instagram what she does to stay in shape. "My loss was a tiny bit slower than the average person, but to be honest I expected that as many diets/food plans didn't work for me at all as the Lyme disease and ME can really play havoc with how your system works. Plus, my consultant Donna stressed that my health is the most important thing so I took things a little more slowly whilst feeling more energised and even with health issues I've still managed to do it!"

McCutcheon uses a wellness plan to help herself stay in shape. She opens up about what the plan is like in her Instagram post. "Only five and a half weeks and my BMI is in a much healthier range," she says. "And on my step of the plan I love that I can still have my green juices, porridge and real food."


She Uses The 80/20 Rule


McCutcheon opened up about her diet to Love Sunday magazine. "The 80/20 rule is what works for me," she said. For 80% of my week, I will have mainly just healthy proteins, vegetables and fruit, organic and veggie juices, and Flora ProActiv spread. And then I'll have treats 20% of the time – I'll have that slice of pizza, chocolate or a G&T to celebrate a friend's birthday. I'll do it because I know that for most of the week, I've been doing the good bits for my heart."


She Walks Her Dogs

One thing McCutcheon does to stay in shape is take her dogs on walks. "I walk with my dogs every day – it's good for my head and my health," she said to Love Sunday. "Normally I'll do the school drop-off ready to go in my trainers with the dogs in the back of the car. Then I'll go straight to the forest. When we lived in London, I'd walk to the parks or go on the treadmill in the gym, but it wasn't as satisfying as it is now. Now we live in the Surrey countryside I have a lot more beautiful space around me, where I have that time to breathe. I like to walk for about 40 minutes."


She Tries What Works For Her

McCutcheon tells Love Sunday that she likes to try different things to see what works for her.  "It's taken me such a long time to look through all the stuff that's out there, and just do what works for me. So it's not as simple as just going on a crazy diet. I just feel like it's really important to encourage women to just be the best version of themselves."
