Just a quick message to say: THANK YOU! ???????? For all your messages regarding my recent stories about nutrition. I am not a qualified nutritionist (I might be in due time ☺️) but what I do have is my own experience which is evidence in itself. Nutrition can be an absolute minefield but just having a basic understanding can really help you make some sustainable lifestyle changes and improve your quality of life. Nutrition can also be extremely boring so I GET IT!!! ???? Do let me know if there are any topics you would like me to discuss on here or YouTube etc and hopefully I can provide some clear answers for you! ???????? Also a lot of people asking if I drink coffee… YES. Yes I do. Probably way too much ???? I literally only really drink water, squash, herbal teas & coffee… Decaf iced americanooooo please. ☕️ My gorgeous gym set from @lcouturecollections cause I KNOW you’re gonna ask ???????? #lcouture #lcgirl
