Liz Parry talks to former Pussycat Doll and Got to Dance judge Kimberly Wyatt about her healthy diet and exercise regime

Q: Here at Your Healthy Living we like to find out how celebrities look after their health and wellbeing. Can you tell us a bit about your diet and what foods you normally eat?

Kimberly: "I always try to be careful with what I eat because, being a dancer, I have to fill my body with the right foods in order to feel at my best. I choose to have a protein-rich diet and I love everything from salmon to chicken to eggs. I tend to start the day with two poached eggs on whole wheat toast then for lunch I try to keep it light with something like a grilled chicken salad. For dinner I love to have sushi. It’s quite light but it’s filling and it tastes so good!"

Q: How do you maintain your energy levels when you’re always on the go?

Kimberly: "I do keep a really busy schedule and I find that I’m constantly on the go. I think that by having protein milk in my bag or on my person helps me to keep my energy levels going and it also helps to maximise my mental strength."

Q: As a dancer you’re very fit and active, but do you enjoy other forms of exercise too?

Kimberly: "Yes, definitely. Over the years I’ve tried so many different things just to find enjoyment and to find a way to mix it up so that I don’t get bored. I really like hot yoga and I also like jogging, interval training and working out with light weights and TRX cables. I like to mix it up and keep it fresh amongst all the dancing that I do as well."

Q: Do you think more people should take up dance as a form of exercise?

Kimberly: "Yes, absolutely. I think dance is a great way to stay fit but also to have fun when you’re doing it. I think a lot of people give up with exercise because it feels like such hard work, and when you work long hours the last thing you want to do is work some more, so dance helps to put a fun spin on it."

Q: Do you take any supplements or vitamins?

Kimberly: "I’ll always have a protein shake after some intense exercise because it helps my muscles to recover and keeps them toned, but otherwise I just stick to a healthy diet and try to eat the best foods I can to give me all the vitamins I need."

Q: Do you ever worry about your health?

Kimberly: "Being a dancer I’ve suffered from various different injuries that I need to be careful with. I’ve also had a lot of unfortunate circumstances in my family from heart disease to cancer and it definitely gives me worries to an extent. But I just try to focus on living a healthy life and making sure that I’m taking care of my fitness and my nutritional health and getting my stress management under control. I think that’s a big thing. I try to maintain a positive outlook on life and not worry about my health."

Q: Do you follow a specific skincare routine?

Kimberly: "Yes, I always make sure that I use make-up remover cloths at night so I never sleep in my make-up. I also make sure that I drink ample amounts of water and exfoliate my skin once a week. I think it’s also important to manage your stress."

Q: How do you relax after a busy day?

Kimberly: "I love to run a hot bath, light a candle and de-stress that way. It’s always been one of my favourite things to do. I also love to just veg out and watch my favourite TV shows with my boyfriend."

Q: What projects do you have coming up in the near future?

Kimberly: "I’m really excited that my Beautiful Movements cosmetics range is going to retail. I’m really focused on launching that and just getting the word out there about this amazing natural mineral make-up that I really believe in. I’ve also been in the studio working on music and working on content for my online channel, Beautiful Movements TV."

Q: If you could give readers of Your Healthy Living one tip for good health, what would it be?

Kimberly:"Love life! I think it’s as simple as that. You have to find the enjoyment in life and when you find the enjoyment you find the willingness to take even better care of yourself."
