In a bid to turn things round, Simone started a new regime, sticking to healthy foods and either walking or swimming for an hour every day. While the effort paid off – she dropped 20kg in two months – she found herself fixated on food.
Since coming home, she’s been sticking to her guns, exercising daily and enjoying a healthy diet that is all about nutrition, balance and variety. She doesn’t follow any specific eating plan, and likes to fuel up on lean protein, fresh veges, fish, and wholegrains. Her new partner, Trent Forsyth, regularly joins her at the gym, and her online followers are still a constant source of motivation.
