Let’s be real… We can’t be ‘on it’ all the time.*

I can sit here telling you all to train every morning, drink smoothies, eat like an angel and shun all booze and saturated fats every day of the week.

But what’s that going to do? Send you into a spiral of unattainable goals and disappointments. And you’ll miss out on some of life’s best and most pleasurable experiences.

The real secret to sustainable health and fitness is (unless you have an angel’s willpower and superhuman scheduling powers) all about taking steps and finding balance.

As much as we have the best intentions to lead a fit and healthy lifestyle 24/7, for most of us it’s not realistic, especially when there’s so much of life out there to savour

I’m currently working in and – more importantly – travelling and exploring Australia, and I’m not limiting myself.

Those of you who have been following my journey on social media, you know I’ve been salsa dancing, drinking red wine and eating good and wholesome – but not macro or calorie-counted – food at amazing vegan Sydney restaurants including Nourishing Quarter and The Clean Treats Factory.

I still train 3-4 times a week, and I walk a lot every day. I still consider myself a very fit and healthy person. How do I maximise my efforts? By eating right 80% of the time, and implementing sensible aids into my routine.

I like to try out decent supplements for extra help and, most recently, I’ve started taking some fully vegan supplements from Live Limitless. These include the Live Lean energy booster (& fat burner) pills, which help me power through gym sessions and maximise fat burning potential.

I’ve also been adding a dose of the highly-concentrated and bio-available Live Clean detox tonic in my morning smoothies to balance out those couple of glasses of wine at the weekend!

Live Lean

Live Lean is a multi-functional supplement which raises your metabolism and increases energy levels. It can be used in 3 ways: as a Pre-Workout, Energy Booster and Fat Burner.

I can’t stress how different the Live Lean pills are from ‘popular’ pseudo-science (or even dangerous) products you see so many fitness models promoting these days.

The tabs contain proven, safe and effective ingredients like apple cider vinegar, L-Carnitine and some caffeine.

I used to buy and consume these separately but love that I can get them all with 2 pills a day in a handy little £25 tub I can take with me anywhere on my travels.

Many intense pre-workouts for hardcore bodybuilders can have unpleasant side effects like ‘the shakes’, a red face and even a come down. Live Lean is a gentler alternative yet still super-effective. They’ve chosen the best ingredients.

Plus, the minerals and vitamins within provide you with a hit of vital nutrients and key components for overall health.

Live Clean

I’m into the ‘detox / retox’ philosophy, and the Live Clean tonic – which helps to cleanse the body from the inside out – certainly helps with the detox part.

It’s a highly-concentrated juice full of bio-available (easily absorbed) active ingredients, and comes with a nutrition plan to help you plan and prepare tasty, healthy meals while detoxing along with the tonic.

I’ve been adding one capful to a post-workout smoothie of bananas, berries, greens, veg,superfoods and protein powder, with water, and feeling my body revitalise in an instant

The diet guide which comes with your bottle contains a fab assortment of antioxidant-rich recipes with plenty of vegan options to help the benefits of the tonic, and the ‘detoxing’ process.

You can make various DIY herbal teas, smoothies, salads, soups and snacks and even nice cream! – that’s guilt-and-cruelty-free ‘ice-cream’ made from bananas.

Live Clean’s carefully formulated blend of 12 plant foods and 4 added nutrients helps rid the body of toxins and cellulite, and it’s great to take if you’re feeling sluggish, fatigued or bloated. It also tastes amazing, tropical and fruity!

In a recent study Live Clean helped all 25 participants (who made no other lifestyle changes) lose weight – an average of 5kg and 3.5cm from their waist – over a month.

A single daily dose is all you need.

Live Limitless is all about guilt-free balance, full life enjoyment, and providing a wellness boost and strength in the gym (plus, the packaging is also super sleek and looks good in your handbag!)
