An­drea Mclean shares se­crets

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - NEWS - BY TOM BRYANT Head of Show­biz

SHE is two years off the big 5-0, but An­drea Mclean says she is fit­ter than ever be­fore.

The Loose Wo­man star has over­hauled her ex­er­cise regime and diet to get back on track fol­low­ing her hys­terec­tomy in Septem­ber 2016.

An­drea said: “I’d lost all my strength. I took two months off ex­er­cise and found it frus­trat­ing and de­press­ing. I hadn’t re­alised how im­por­tant ex­er­cise was to me men­tally.”

Since then, An­drea and her fi­ance Nick Feeney have been hav­ing reg­u­lar per­sonal train­ing ses­sions. She said: “Slow, steady weight train­ing worked best. I had to build up very gen­tly af­ter the op.

“But ac­tu­ally, I think women of my age are fit­ter than younger women be­cause we’re do­ing it sen­si­bly.

“You’re fo­cus­ing on the in­side and the bonus is that the out­side looks good. I have cel­lulite, I have scars, but I think I’m in great shape. I’m two years away from 50 and I look fab­u­lous for my age. I’m re­ally proud of my­self.”

The TV host also tries to be care­ful about what she eats. She said: “I’ve suf­fered with shin­gles­like viruses through­out my life, so I looked into what foods are good for your im­mune sys­tem, me­tab­o­lism and menopause.”
