How do you stay fit?
Diet is important. Depending on where I am living, when in Sydney I try to eat a lot of red meat for protein and salad and I watch my carbohydrate intake. When I go up home I eat a lot of bush food – berries, turtle and kangaroo. I also try and get to dance classes as much as I can, but if I don’t I just pump the music at home and dance.
Do you have any health tips?
Don’t smoke and don’t drink – because it makes you put on weight – if you keep away from that stuff and eat healthy food and lots of fruit then you will stay healthy. Occasionally though, I have some chocolate – I am not a full-on health freak. Dance or play sport – just keep active – even if it’s just walking to the park every day.
