  1. What is your take on junk food?

Junk food is a No No but it is fun to have a Big Mac n fries once in a while. Who doesn’t love a hot dog or a pizza? It’s good to stay away from processed foods and unhealthy foods but indulgence once in a while is ok

I think if you keep to a healthy diet all 6 days then Sunday can be a cheat day.


  1. Do you follow any particular diet? Such as keto, paleo, vegetarian?

I love apples, grapefruit, nuts n berries, salads, grilled fish, protein chicken n even hunter beef. Not a big chocolate fan, it cake but I love me Thai, pastas which one needs to avoid. I’m a salaan, Buhari n paya roti n paratha lover. Since I’m in my 50’s I have to work out harder as metabolism goes down with age.

So I’ve done every diet in the book. I started early age of 13. Gave up Coke, then I’ve done Atkins HCG, cabbage soup for a quick detox is my favorite to drop 7 pounds in a week. I am presently on Keto diet. So let’s see how that works
