My body really responds well to a heavy protein diet. I try to graze all day and not binge eat when I'm starving. I also look at food as fuel for my day, and I base how much I eat around how much I'll be exercising.

Here's what I typically eat in a day.

Breakfast: eggs and toast

I almost always start with eggs (poached or scrambled), on a piece of gluten-free toast with smashed avocado on it and a side of tomato and turkey. Getting all that protein first thing in the morning is key. Depending on how I'm feeling, I'll have a green tea or a flat white coffee with breakfast—if I need more energy, coffee is the way to go.

Lunch: salmon tacos

For lunch, I have salmon tacos in lettuce leaves with a side of root vegetables. My body loves the vegetable, protein, and good fat combination.

Snacks: Hummus and nuts

In between meals I snack on hummus, nuts, a protein shake, and lots and lots of water (if that counts as a snack).

Dinner: It's all about protein.

For dinner, I typically have chicken with stir-fried vegetables. My latest obsession is bok choy with collard greens.

Dessert: Chocolate!

For dessert, I have a piece of chocolate. I have such a sweet tooth and could really eat chocolate all day long, but I try to have some control!

Clients not only avoid injury, but avoid boredom. Possessing a strong passion for such an art form Simone wanted to share this joy with her clients both in a private and group forum. Simone opened her first studio in 2011 and is the creator of the Body By Simone method. She employs over 30 trainers, all certified in this dance based interval training program.
