And if that annoys you, unfollow! But if you like it, stay with me!’ Davina explains in a recent Instagram video, addressing critics who label her as ‘self-obsessed’,
How does Davina stay so toned?
She mixes it up
McCall doesn’t stick to cardio, she incorporates all type of workouts into her routine from HIIT and resistance training to spin classes. She follows the mantra, ‘If you’re not soaked in sweat by the end of it, you’re not working hard enough.’
A positive mindset
A positive outlook towards life is essential to keeping you motivated, managing expectations and reaching your goals. McCall has no time for negativity and negative people in her life and cuts them out asap while ensuring she’s always optimistic.
An active lifestyle
Inactivity is one of the greatest catalysts towards chronic disease in the UK and considered near ‘epidemic’ status, it’s essential for longevity to stay active physically. McCall ensures she gets out and gets moving regularly whether it be walking her dogs or hiking with her friends in France.
McCall follows a healthy and sustainable diet, she’s ‘sugar free’, cutting out refined sugars completely and eats a diet full of lean proteins, whole grains and plenty of fruit and veg.
The mother of three is a big advocate of a natural approach towards food, cooking from scratch in the kitchen and staying as far away from processed foods as possible. Although that’s not to say that McCall isn’t the fan of the occasional indulgence!
