TV3 presenter Ruth O’Neill has revealed the top slimming secrets that allow her to maintain a svelte figure. The Xpose star has a hectic schedule, but still finds time to work out and include foods in her diet that make her feel good.
Speaking to the Sunday Independent Ruth stated that practical tips such as the distance between the gym and your house can make a huge difference when it comes to achieving your fitness goals. She also credits different types of workouts for helping her stay lean.
“My secret weapon for staying in shape is my trainer Sue Fraser. I try to work out one-on-one with her when I can. If my schedule is crazy I’ll try to go to one of her bootcamp classes. She’s more than just a trainer; she’s like a life coach. She helps me get my mind in the right place. We do TRX suspension training, weight training, HIIT, resistance bands, cardio.
“She knows exactly how I want my body to be- feminine and lean. I try to work out a minimum of two times a week, a maximum of four times a week. To stay consistent I think the classes need to be near your house and parking needs to be easy,” she said.
The 28-year old, who formerly worked with E! News, appears to have taken some Los Angeles food traits home with her as she likes to include green juices to her diet- so LA! She also notices a big difference in her body when she eliminates alcohol.
“If I’m really trying to slim down I’ll try to cut down on booze- that’s where I really see a difference, especially in my face. I’ll also try not to eat out as much. Eating out is a killer.
“Recently I’ve been trying to drink at least one green juice a day and I try not to eat after 8pm. I also got food allergy testing and found out I was allergic to foods like chicken, olives, and almonds. They might be healthy foods but they just don’t agree with me,” she said.
