Meaghan Terzis' diet secrets

On food:
I never like to say I am on a diet; for me it’s a lifestyle. In terms of aesthetics and performance, I believe the kitchen plays a huge role. A healthy diet full of fruits, vegetables, healthy fats and lean sources of protein is helpful, as is eating every two to three hours to keep your metabolism revving and averting hunger that could lead to overeating or poor choices.

On cravings:
Once in a while I have that craving for something salty and crunchy so I open up a can of chick peas and place them in an oven safe dish, drizzle a little bit of olive oil and add a dash of sea salt and roast them in the oven for one hour.

On festive season excesses:
When it comes to the holidays and the festive season, one thing seems to come to mind: food, and lots of it. To manage social events anchored by high-calorie drinks, lollies, canapés and desserts, I suggest drinking lots of water and either skipping alcohol or having one glass. To keep a check on portions, serve what you plan to eat on a plate rather than choosing as you go; it’s easy to lose track!
