About me

Hi, I'm Chantel!

I’m a newspaper editor who gained more than 40kg behind my desk. This happened largely because I was living an inactive lifestyle, eating badly ... and spending up to 12 hours a day at the office in a high stress environment. When I decided to turn things around, I applied the editing principals of my day job to my diet and lifestyle, in my pursuit of health and fitness. I follow a Paleo diet and include functional training and boxing in my exercise regimen – but I’m always up for a challenge. I'll be sharing some ideas to keep meal times exciting and healthy as well as telling you all about the fun things I've got lined up to keep in shape. Keep in touch. I'd love to hear from you! hello@editedeating.co.za
