Hey girls and guys,

I grew up playing a lot of netball and girls soccer, however as I've gotten older I've been opting for pure cardio workouts and light weights to tone up 2 - 3 times a week for 30 - 40 minutes.

I'm not vegan or vegetarian by any means but I do eat more protein and legumes than anything else. For snacks I have nuts and dates. Chocolate with my cup of tea is enjoyable.

I think a healthy lifestyle is a lifelong approach opposed to sporadic dieting and exercising.

What's your diet, lifestyle and/or weight loss plan if you have any?

Thanks for sharing your lifestyle choices @simplymessy - I'm curious to read others' on here too.

I'm not vegetarian or vegan either and I'm not someone with a designated fitness routine. I do however ride my bike whenever I can 3 - 4 times a week from home to the town square (30 minutes). It's surprisingly faster by bike than car during peak times (by taking the cycle way) . How do you find the cardio and weights? What sort of exercises do you do?

My diet isn't tracked down or my calories aren't recorded. The foods I tend to buy to make meals are: tomatoes, onions, lettuce, beetroot, avocado, cabbage, carrots, white rice, brown rice, coconut milk, almond milk, red meat, fish, potato chips, chocolate, ice-cream, bread, and mineral water.

What I don't eat: packaged meals of any kind and fast food.

Wow after reading these I feel foodly disorganised. My life is hectic atm and I snack a lot with study. I should really eat proper cooked meals from home but I often stop buy chinese takeaway and mexican places on the way. I did have gym membership but I felt like it didnt do much but bulk me up.

Thanks for sharing with us all. Cycling is good fun and is better for the environment, unfortunately my bike is broken. Nice shopping list, and yes, I strictly avoid fast food altogether.

If you're super busy you can cook all at once and freeze your meals for when you need them. Everyone's body is different and response to exercises. Typically if you lift heavier weights bulking occurs, try keeping them lighter and do more repetitions.
