How I look3 great at 48
Andrea Mclean shares secrets
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.”
