Source: Instagram user melissa_ambrosini Start 5.30am What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 I wake up and head straight to training with my personal trainer Christian Miranda or to a yoga class. I always exercise first thing in the morning that way I can’t make up excuses later in the day for why I shouldn’t go in the afternoon. 1 / 8 8am What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 I always start my day with warm water, lemon and apple cider vinegar. Then I hit the showers. I dry body brush every morning and cover myself head to toe in coconut oil after my shower. 2 / 8 9.30am What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 The first thing you eat or drink in the day is the most important as it sets-off the neurotransmitters for the day. If you start your day with a breakfast high in sugar and carbohydrates you will generally crave that for the rest of the day. I always have a green smoothie or juice packed with vitamin and nutrients. 3 / 8 1pm What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 Lunch is usually a massive salad with avocado, macadamia nuts, fermented veggies, seeds, steamed broccoli, roasted cauliflower and sometimes some protein such as wild caught fish, red meat or chicken. 4 / 8 Afternoon tea What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 I don't usually snack as I don't get hungry, but if I am I'll have an herbal tea like dandelion or rooibos, with a teaspoon of creamed coconut in it. I also drink around three litres of filtered water a day. 6 / 8 6.30pm What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 Dinner is similar to lunch with some organic meat, a big salad and roasted veggies. 6 / 8 7pm What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 For dessert I will usually have an herbal tea or a raw bliss ball, but not every night. I shut the kitchen at 7.30pm and try to not eat anything after then so I give my digestive system enough time to digestive my food before bed. 7 / 8 9pm What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 I head to bed at 9pm to read, meditate and relax then lights out by 9.30pm. 8 / 8 1 56 7 0 0 Back to Homepage Read More Healthy EatingCelebrity FitnessHealthy Living healthy eating 14 Ingredients Every Smoothie Cupboard Should Have 31/1 40+ Healthy Eating Tips & Tricks 30/1 My Day on a Plate: Tiffiny Hall 26/1 Breakfast For the Weekend: 250-Calorie Quinoa Egg Bake 18/1 Beat the Heatwave With These Hydrating Foods 15/1 My Day on a Plate: Lara Bingle 05/1 What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 0Reactions Alison Rice 28 weeks Hi guys! Thanks for the feedback, feel free to visit Melissa's site, http://pathtowellness.com.au/, to learn more about why her diet works for her. Saskia7 31 weeks Oh please you can easily eat only lots of vegetables and lean protein in a day and be happy about it. The only thing I'm concerned about is the amount of carbs in that mealplan above. I would have no energy to do an intense workout on that. Angela14755144 31 weeks Hi Melissa, you look amazing and so healthy. I am just wondering why you don't get hungry though? To have only a green smoothie or juice until 1pm is not very much food. I would be starving! Were you hungry when you first started doing that? Elle14753675 31 weeks Really?? She essentially only eats veggies and a little bit of protein all day. Who can realistically follow this lifestyle?
