NOW: Taryn has competed in body building competitions

Taryn, who now wear a size 8, said: “Back when I first moved to the UK I had absolutely no idea how to eat properly. I would binge eat all kinds of rubbish foods, then attempt to diet by living off toast and skipping breakfast. I never lost any weight doing this and I would spend days wondering why.

“It wasn’t until I had my daughter in 2012 when I realised something needed to change. I began by making small but effective lifestyle changes that made me feel so much better as a person.”

The fitness fantaic swapped in cookie and chocolate bars for a healthy diet that included foods from online food retailer

The oil company administrator said: “I quit the sugary snacks and made myself eat breakfast, which is something I never did back in my twenties.

“But I have found that by training my body to eat in the morning, I have the fuel I need to start the day right, which means I no longer snack on the wrong foods.”

GYM BUNNY: Taryn’s secret is using her work gym during her lunch break

She now eats three hearty meals a day and three snacks, and trains at the gym five days per week.

Taryn’s diet includes chicken satay, chipotle chilli, fishcakes, along with plenty of fruit and veggies.

She said: “I am lucky enough to work in an office that has its own gym, which means I can do my workouts at lunchtime so I can spend my evenings with my five-year-old daughter Rachel.

“I want to be able to inspire mums to not give up their passions in life just because they have kids. I can be a mum to my daughter, whilst also living my dream of competing as a body builder.

“It’s not as hard as people might think. My daughter and I eat the exact same meals every evening as they are wholesome and provide all the nutrients our bodies need, it’s all about portion control.”
