Amanda Byram launches new healthy-eating website
She's been sharing her fitness and nutrition tips through her social media platforms for years now, but Amanda Byram has finally launched her own website.
The TV presenter has transformed her diet and exercise regime since she turned 40 and is now giving her followers an insight with her daily blogs and videos on amandabyram.com.
The Dubliner revealed that she decided to transform her diet after she fell ill around Christmas 2013.
"It was the best thing that happened to me because it made me decide to have a complete turnaround, so I did dry January, took out caffeine and got through that and felt amazing," she revealed.
"I was turning 40 in the June and decided to carry on until then."
Amanda (41) now has a strict diet and has cut out alcohol, caffeine, meat and sugar - although she admits she allows herself the odd tipple on a very special occasion.
"With alcohol, I didn't drink during the week and then the weekend would arrive and I would just binge - then you spend the whole weekend eating rubbish," she added.
She's now focussing on her website and promoting her new Twitter account, ByramBod. Her main advice to those looking to change their diet or take up exercise is to take it in small steps. "Don't try and do everything at once as most will fail and won't want to try it again," she says.
