Is there really such a thing as a secret weapon to getting the perfect body? Well, the answer is yes and no. Let me explain…
There’s no magic bullet around working hard, having lots of discipline and following basic steps to good health, BUT here is my secret and a staple in pretty much all my dishes that help me stay lean year round and which you can substitute for flour…SWEET POTATO & YAMS!

Sweet potatoes can range in color from orange, white, yellow, light brown and even a hue of vivid purple! They are high in vitamin A, GREAT for model perfect skin!
The sweet potato or yam has been deemed a “super food.” The sweet potato’s nutritional value is astounding. Sweet potatoes also have anti-inflammatory properties, are a great source of antioxidants and are low on the glycemic index.
Actual yams are a lot harder to find in your every day grocery store. You will most likely have to search your local health food store or specialty grocery store to find one.
One of my biggest challenges as a bikini model was to find a balance in looking fit & sexy but living and eating in a way that allowed me to enjoy foods.
