sponsors. But, I really enjoy training, and it makes me feel better, so I always find a way and the time to do it. FFM: Do you have any advice for people who are having trouble sticking to an exercise routine? NM: I think the biggest problem is that people normally want overnight results when starting an exercise/nutrition routine. However, nothing happens overnight. The changes can be slow, but small changes are better than no changes. So, my advice is to keep on going and to not compare your progress to anybody else’s. FFM: Can a child be too young to start a program? NM: If they are under professional guidance, and are healthy I don’t see a problem in kids working out. FFM: Give us good practical breakfast, lunch, and dinner ideas for when you are on the run. Breakfast- Overnight oats -Before going to bed the night before, put oats, your favorite protein powder, water, Desiccated coconut (or almonds) in a container with a lid. Leave it overnight in the fridge and in the morning it will be a delicious pudding texture “on the go” breakfast. Lunch- Low Carb Tortilla Wrap with Low Sodium Canned Tuna - You can mix the Tuna with a bit of black pepper, olive oil, and Greek Yogurt. Make a wrap with Romaine Lettuce and the tuna mix. Dinner- Baked Salmon with Sweet Potato Baked Fries and peas - Season the salmon with herbs, black pepper, and salt, wrap it in tin foil, and put it in the oven for 15 minutes. Cut the sweet potatoes in slices (I always leave them in bulk already sliced in the fridge), put it on a baking tray and sprinkle salt, black pepper, and cinnamon. Put it in the oven for 15 minutes. Put the frozen peas to boil in water for 5 minutes. Or, you can just buy the microwaveable bags. **The prep time for all this is less than 5 minutes. FFM: Any upcoming books or seminars so people can learn and follow your instructions? NM: Yes. I have been doing seminars in many places, just last year alone I did seminars and training camps in 12 different countries. BernSwitzerland, Tampa- USA, London-England and Belfast-Northern Ireland are some of the ones coming up. To stay updated on my seminar schedule you can just go to my Facebook page (/ nathaliamelofit), where I always post information about my upcoming events. I will also be launching my eBook in a month, as well as my website-stay tuned! FFM: What do you enjoy doing in your down time? NM: I am not really a “down time” type of person; I can’t sit still! But, when I have some free time I like to travel and visit different places or just stay home reading books and spending time with my fiancé, in between work email checks, haha. FFM: What is something interesting about you that most people don’t know? NM: I am always around people, and I find myself a pretty sociable person. However, I consider myself a bit of a loner, and I like to do things alone. I will even go to the movies by myself, no problem. I think it is good to enjoy your own company. FFM: Tell us about your dog, he’s a Bernese Mountain dog, right? NM: Yes!! His name is Nacho, and he is a gentle giant. He is a pure Bernese Mountain dog. His parents were show dogs, but I think he wouldn’t be too good at it as he is very clumsy! Nacho is a big >>> www.MOST mag.com || FITNESS M A G A Z I N E || 123
