ITV meteorologist Lucy Verasamy blames the social media for the growing trend and craze for ‘clean eating’! Know the reasons for it and about her career and family!
Lucy Verasamy no more a fan of ‘clean’ eating!
ITV weather presenter Lucy Verasamy, 34 in a recent interview disclosed that she tries to strike the right balance between exercise and food! Lucy revealed:
“I do the occasional 5km run and I love Pilates,”
“I don’t diet. I’m mindful about what I eat but I tuck into biscuits like everyone else.”
She stated that 2-3 years ago she too was sucked into the trend of ‘clean’ eating! She used to eat only whole food items and avoid anything processed and refined. She said:
“I ate protein, healthy fats and greens; if I ever had a carbohydrate it would be quinoa or sweet potato. “
It became her mindset and she went too far that it affected her weight. She grew extremely thin and did not look healthy. It was only after her brother pointed it out to her that she appeared emaciated, that Lucy realized that something was wrong going on.
She then took a nutritionist’s advice after which she felt relaxed. She says now:
“…and started eating what I wanted. I just have what my body is craving,”
“I think there’s so much information out there that can be misconstrued.”
Lucy revealed that she no longer sticks to a strict diet. She said:
“We’ve got one body and we need to look after it. You don’t want to look too thin. It’s about getting the right balance.”
