Height: 1.71m Weight: 54kg

Exercise regimen: I hit the gym twice a week. Each time, I do a 45-minute session in high-intensity interval training, such as boxing, cycling or aerobics. For the other days, I try to walk more around my work place.

Diet: I do not micro-manage my food intake. I try to eat more vegetables and fruits. When I am eating out, I ask for less salt and sugar whenever possible and I avoid carbonated drinks.
