There are some tips and facts from Amber –
- She likes to cook her own food, even during her busy schedule. This is because she can have control over her diet. She mainly intakes proteins and vegetables.
- She never breaks her workout routine. If you missed a day to go out for exercises or skipped a particular exercise, you may fall into the habit of laziness. Avoid this and say to yourself that you have to do this.
- She goes to the gym to feel better rather than look better. Most women visit the gym just to look better and if their motive is not fulfilled in a certain period of time, they feel dis-hearted.
- She always reads the label on the food packet to look for its ingredients. And only buys if those ingredients are known to her. Otherwise, she straight away leaves that packet.
