Geethanjeli, a polytechnic student, shares why her diet doesn’t include processed food.
Height: 1.67m Weight: 50kg
Exercise regimen: I visit the gym at least three times a week, working on three areas each day – arms, legs and back. I usually end with a cardio or a circuit of abdominal exercises. I also do dead lifts, lat pull downs, and variations of exercises with dumb-bells. I am very involved in my school co-curricular activity, Muay Thai, for which I train twice a week. I also swim.
Diet: Breakfast is toast with jam and Milo. My lunch is mixed brown and white rice with stir-fried chicken breast and some spinach. As for dinner, I avoid eating rice or other carbs and stick to lean meat with a salad. I do not consume beef or pork, so I stick to chicken or fish. I avoid dairy products as I am lactose intolerant. I also do not eat processed food.
