What sort of exercise do you do to keep in shape?

I have a dog who I walk about 5km every day. I do training five days a week – I like to vary it and mix it up so my body doesn’t get used to it. I might do circuit training, a spin class, boxing - I go to a lot of classes. I have personal trainers in Dublin and London. I love going to the gym and really love walking my dog.

What sort of foods do you eat to stay healthy?

For breakfast I might have avocado and egg on brown bread, or porridge, bananas and almond butter. I also like granola with fruit. Lunch is always on the go, so I might go for a sandwich or salad box. Dinner might be chilli con carne, steak, fish and vegetables or a stir fry. I eat out at least twice a week and don’t like to limit or restrict myself. For snacks I eat lots of fruit, and I make protein shakes with almond milk, peanut butter, banana and protein powder. I have never been a big alcohol drinker and never crave a glass of wine. I did dry January and February. I don’t drink coffee or need a caffeine hit, but I do like tea.

Do you take any natural supplements or drinks?

I take vitamin C and cod liver oil every morning. I also take two tablets of blackcurrant extract CurraNZ an hour before I train - they give me great energy and really help with recovery. It’s is such a superfood. What’s amazing is that 1 capsule has the same nutritional value as 85 blackcurrants!

Do you buy food in health stores?

I love to wander round health stores and you can get great deals on the nuts and seeds I use to make protein balls. I buy kilo tubs of almond butter, which I get through really quickly. I buy desiccated coconut to stir into porridge – it’s hard to get in other shops. I really like the natural lip balms, creams and nice things for your hair which are all sold in health stores.

Do you ever worry about your health?

I am quite a healthy person. I like going to the gym and want to be internally healthy as well as look good. There is a history of stroke in my family so I am aware of that. I try to live healthily and don’t smoke.

Do you have any tips for Rude Health readers?

Being fit and healthy is all about educating ourselves and learning how to make healthier choices.

My main tip would be consistency when you train – you should start at three times per week but aim for four if you can. Going to the gym once a week will not make much difference to your body.

If I am struggling with energy I don’t drink coffee – the CurraNZ really helps me to get up and go.
