-WHAT’S YOUR DIET LIKE?
I REALLY DON’T HAVE A STRICT DIET. I EAT ALMOST EVERYTHING AND I DON’T KNOW IF I HAVE A SWEET OR SALTY TOOTH. BUT I’M DEFINITELY A FOODIE. I LIKE TO EAT HEALTHY AND TRY TO COOK AT HOME AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE WHEN I’M NOT TRAVELLING. 
I BELIEVE IN «  YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT  ».
 WHEN YOU’RE TRAVELLING ALL YEAR LONG, IS COMPLICATED TO HAVE A ROUTINE. BUT I TRY TO GO BIG ON BREAKFAST(S) AND LIGHTER ON DINNER.. BUT WHEN I’VE BEEN SURFING ALL DAY, I CAN GO REALLY BIG ON DINNER TOO. IT REALLY DEPENDS ON WHAT I’VE BEEN DOING DURING MY DAY.

MODERATION IS DEFINITELY THE KEY TO STAY IN SHAPE. BUT I TOLD MYSELF THAT IT’S OKAY TO HAVE BAD DAYS AND EAT THE ENTIRE BAG OF COOKIES.. ESPECIALLY WHEN I’M ON MY PERIOD, I FEEL LIKE ALL I WANT TO DO IS EATING.. HAHA. I TRULY THING THAT FOOD CAN MAKES YOU HAPPY AND I RATHER EAT A BIT TOO MUCH AND GO ON A JOGGING THE NEXT THAN STARVING MYSELF. 
I DON’T DRINK DIARY MILK AND I TRY TO NOT EAT RED MEAT, BUT MY GULTY PLEASURE IS A FRENCH MCDONALS ONCE IN A WHILE..
I’VE BEEN TRYING TO BE VEGAN, BUT I LOVE CHEESE.. AND I WAS FEELING LIKE I WAS TOO STRICT ON MYSELF, AND I FELT SAD, TIRED AND NOT MYSELF REFUSING SOME KIND OF FOOD I LIKE.

EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT AND IT TAKES TIME TO FIND WHAT WORKS GOOD FOR YOU.
