Healthy Fats, Protein and Vegetables

Keegan starts her day with oatmeal or avocado toast. "Then for lunch, I normally have a protein base, whether it's chicken or a fish with veg," she says. "I tend to stay away from potatoes around midday because I crash around 3pm if I have loads of carbs, and I get really tired…and then for tea or dinner, I always make sea bass or salmon with soy sauce and a bit of honey on there, and then I have asparagus and broccoli."


HIIT Workouts

Keegan works out several times a week, but isn't the biggest fan of treadmill sessions. "I try and exercise on average about three times a week, but this can vary depending on my work schedule," she says. "My routine in the gym is usually a 20-minute HIIT workout. I like The Body Coach workouts, followed by a weight session. I really don't enjoy cardio – just running on a treadmill doesn't appeal to me."


Everything In Moderation

Keegan is enthusiastic about enjoying her food but also using common sense. "When it comes to diet, I believe in everything in moderation," she says. "I don't eat red meat and at the moment, I am trying to cut down the amount of dairy I have, but I don't believe in beating yourself up or stopping yourself having anything you really want. I try to avoid having carbs late at night when I am preparing for a photo shoot, but one of my favorite foods is cheese and I love having a Chinese on a Saturday night. I think it's healthy to have a relaxed approach and balanced outlook."


Weight Training

Keegan incorporates weight training into her workouts, which is essential for building muscle and strength while staying toned and fit. "I mix up my weight training, focusing on legs in one session, arms in the next and then core, giving me a full-body workout across the week," she says. "I really believe in living a balanced life, so I don't beat myself up if I don't make it to the gym."


Sunshine and Long Walks

Keegan loves working out first thing and getting lots of walks in. "I would definitely exercise first because that just sets me up for the day, and if I've already got that exercise done, I can tick it off a list, and I'll feel a lot better for the day," she says. "I've really got into walking in lockdown. I love going for walks with my dogs, getting a bit of fresh air, and getting coffee on the way round. With the dogs, in the sunshine, that for me is a big treat."
