Exercise regimen: I do weight training at least six times a week, either during lunch time or after work. Each session will not last more than 11/2 hours. I usually focus on individual muscle groups like chest/tricep, shoulder, lats/hamstring, back, arms and legs during each training session. Cardio will be my daily morning affair with stairsmill for 45 minutes.

Diet: I eat six meals daily and pack my own meals to work every day without fail. My meal consists of egg white, chicken breast, oats, white rice, asparagus and a protein shake. I try to avoid deep-fried food and sugary drinks at all times.

Exercise regimen: I exercise regularly, as often as three times a week. I do interval training for 20 minutes such as sprinting for 30 seconds, then resting for a minute (continuing this set 10 times). This is followed by my body-pump class at Fitness First for an hour. I try to play basketball with friends whenever I'm free as I played the game competitively for many years.

Diet: Breakfast is the most important meal for me. My maid prepares food that is rich in protein and carbs, eg French toast with sunny- side-up eggs, aglio olio with prawns and dory fish. As my job schedule is very hectic, my meal times are often irregular. I always have small meals throughout the day. I try my best to take my dinner before 8pm so that I have ample time for digestion before I sleep. I always have two cups of hot Japanese tea to cleanse my system before I sleep.
