Hot Bods

Edmund Chan, 52

Sales manager

Height: 1.68m Weight: 76kg

Exercise regimen: I go to the gym three times a week to work on the treadmill and rowing machine. Rowing is one of my favourite activities for warming up my body. I run on the treadmill for at least 30 minutes each time. I also do weights six times a week, in which I work on my shoulders, chest, back and legs.

Diet: I am very strict with what I eat, although I do have "cheat" meals twice a week. My breakfast is two slices of wholemeal bread with five hard-boiled eggs, and lunch is brown rice with white meat. I also take pineapples to digest proteins and pineapple enzyme to help with muscle injuries.

Exercise regimen: I am a mother of two sons and I had problems losing my post-pregnancy weight. When my younger son turned three, I embarked on a strict exercise programme in which I focused on weights, toning exercises and high-intensity interval training. I also make sure there are at least two outdoor activities, such as swimming and cycling, that I do with the boys weekly.

Diet: I try to cut down on food with preservatives and sugar. I also choose healthier food options most of the time. I do love my local hawker delights like laksa, chicken rice and hor fun, but I take them in moderation. I stay away from junk food and I hardly snack.
