PS: What’s your take on healthy eating these days?
KI: It’s all about not cutting out foods from your diet. I allow my clients and the people who do my guides to have pasta, to have rice, to have fruit, to have whatever they want to have. I never say to cut out anything, I never cut out anything from my diet. I did try once to eat like Tobi — when I first met Tobi he was dieting for a competition and I was like, I’ll just eat what Tobi eats. I started to feel really, really tired and really, really sick and craving all these foods I’ve never wanted before, like I’d crave salt and vinegar chips and I’d never eaten salt and vinegar chips before! It was really weird and it was then I realised that I want women to be comfortable and not see food as a chore when they’re eating.
PS: Do you ever have a cheat day?
KI: I don’t have a cheat day and I don’t even know if I’d call it a cheat meal. Put it this way: I eat really healthy all the time, I’d always choose the healthy option and if I want to have a piece of cake I’ll have it. I won’t be like, I can only have one piece of cake for the whole week, I’m not like that. If you wanna eat something and you’re healthy and exercise, then have it! Otherwise you’ll crave it.
PS: When you’re on holidays do you still exercise?
KI: What is exercise? I mean, when we were in Greece we were walking every day — I was walking more than I normally would obviously, and again eating healthy food. I don’t want to be one of those people who are like, you must work out on holidays. Yes, I do work out, but I don’t have any regrets and think, oh I should have worked out more. Enjoy life, make sure you’re choosing the healthy option and you’re moving and you’ll be happy.
I’m not about telling people, "You must do this, don’t do that." I’m trying to make it simple for women so they can see it’s not hard to live a healthy lifestyle if you just relax.
