Keeping It Clean; ALICE LIVEING REVEALS HER HEALTHY LIVING TIPS FOR EATING WELL AND STAYING IN SHAPE. MARION MCMULLEN CHECKS OUT THE RECIPES IN HER NEW COOKBOOK

Article excerpt

Though never really overweight, Alice says she ate pretty badly and yo-yo dieted after leaving home for university, leaving her "uncomfortable in my own skin".

"I was the antithesis of what I am now," she says.

After deciding to overhaul her habits, little did she imagine she'd end an Instagram fitspo star - but that's exactly what happened, and Alice is determined to help others achieve the same.

Alice says she includes a lot of lentils in her diet because they are an excellent source of protein and are a low-GI source of carbohydrates while a diet high in cruciferous veggies, such as cauliflower, has been linked to a reduction in the risk of cancer.

Alice says: "Cauliflower also full of antioxidants and dietary fibre and is therefore a superfood that you should be including in your diet. Paired with some delicious baked fish and spices, this is a weeknight staple for me!" Her tips for healthy eating include starting the day right.

"Start by switching up your breakfast. I think it's a place that many of us fall down on, but if you start the day well, you'll have better intentions to continue the day well, rather than starting the day with a rubbish breakfast and then craving something sugary, or not having it at all," she says.

She's not a fan of detoxes either: "They're unsustainable and potentially dangerous. They don't allow you to create any sort of knowledge of how to eat well. They just tell you what to do for a short period of time, then after that what do you do?" Occasional treats are fine too: "I have treats every now and then. I don't want people to think I live this saintly life, where I just eat good food!

"It's important to eat a balanced diet, and to have things you really enjoy, like chocolate."
