The 32-year-old from Sydney shared a video on Instagram to inspire her 380,000 followers to eat well every day – and revealed she doesn’t track calories either.
Her “day on a plate” consists of homemade meals high in protein, vegetables and carbohydrates, such as pasta or rice.

For lunch, Sophie enjoyed a bowl of gluten-free shrimp pasta with peas, goat cheese and tomatoes, which she said was “delicious”.
In the afternoon, she ate two slices of rice bread – one topped with Vegemite and avocado, and the other with peanut butter, banana slices and a drizzle of honey.
Sophie also reminded others to drink at least two liters of water every day to stay hydrated.

‘Gotta stay hydrated girls. You must have your emotional support water bottle with you at all times,’ Sophia said in the video.

“Rather than share the basic things I’ve done to lose weight, let me tell you about what I’ve been doing for the past six months and five years,” she wrote. on Instagram.
“For five years I trained, I dieted, I bounced, I dieted again, I bounced again, I competed in a bikini, I still bounced back, I dieted, I bounced back, over and over… and over again.”
“I was always on a diet or not, and when I wasn’t, I got so fed up that I had a hard time reversing properly and maintaining that weight. The only consistency was that I showed up in the gym and getting strong week after week.
Sophie went on to explain six months prior that she had spent “all the time sitting at the interview/slight excess feeling uncomfortable” and began to question her “identity, abilities, life and his self-esteem”.
What are Sophie’s top tips for lasting fat loss?
1. Eat less than you burn in a day.
Sophie (pictured) shared the advice online. Often she opts for something like an egg white omelette to fuel her muscles.
2. Move your body more and regularly. It doesn’t always have to be a workout, but then you have to make sure you get 10,000 steps.
3. Track your progress (either based on scale weight, pictures, measurements, fit of clothes, how you feel or how strong you are) and make changes if things don’t move like you wish.
4. Accept that it takes time and don’t expect change to happen overnight or even in a week.
5. Don’t jump to the conclusion of a plateau until you’ve been 100% consistent for three to four weeks.
6. Eat mostly whole foods because you’ll have better energy, satiety, and better overall health.
7. Get plenty of sleep and make sure it’s high quality. Aim for between seven and nine hours.
8. Try to reduce stress as much as possible.
9. Ask someone who knows what they do to write a workout and nutrition plan for you.
