Exercise regimen: I work out six days a week in the gym. I do purely strength and hypertrophy training. I do cardio four times a week to ensure a healthy heart rate and to lower my body fat percentage. On my rest day, I usually go for a light swim or a light basketball game.
Diet: I'm on a slightly strict diet. Low on carbs , and high on protein. Chicken breast, egg whites, beef and shrimp are my "best friends". I do have a cheat day once a week, but I still watch my calorie intake.

Exercise regimen: I run a lot as endurance running is effective in decreasing muscle size and to reduce fats to make my thighs smaller. As a part-time model, I would like to appear taller.
Diet: I used to eat whatever I wanted, whenever I felt hungry. I assumed that I had a good metabolic rate and could eat as much as I wanted. However, due to modelling and pageant commitments, I cut down on oily food and switched to fruit whenever I want to snack.
