Made in Chelsea star Louise Thompson reveals the secret to her killer abs - and it's so simple
Made in Chelsea star Louise Thompson has revealed the secret to her washboard abs - and it's more simple than you'd expect.
The reality TV star isn't shy about sharing pictures of her toned body on social media, and has even appeared on the cover of Women's Health to share how she transformed her physique.
Louise (27) told the magazine that the secret to her athletic figure is simple, saying: "I only eat when I'm hungry."
The socialite said that she only eats food that has a nutritional benefit, so pizza and white bread is out of the question.
"But no crap. I don’t eat anything that doesn’t have any nutritional benefit, so I don’t eat crisps or pizza or white bread and I rarely have pasta.
"And I know they say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but I don’t believe that.
"Just eat when you’re hungry, otherwise you’re putting extra stuff into your body when it doesn’t need it. So I skip breakfast, work out, then have big lunches and dinners.
Louise, who is in a relationship with personal trainer Ryan Libbey, emphasised that she still enjoys the occasional treat once in a while, but always ensures that she exercises in conjunction with what she's eating.
"Ryan and I love puddings. A nice soufflé.
"But we’re both in very good athletic shape so, as your body becomes more efficient, you can metabolise food a lot quicker.
"Also, if you stop eating, you’re doing yourself a disservice. Your muscles need the nutrition to grow. But only increase the food if you’re increasing the exercise."

Thrilled by all of the positive feedback from you guys over my @womenshealthuk cover! I LOVE all the tags, especially the ones of the magazine next to food - keep 'em coming ☺️.... I'm so happy to have the opportunity to share my love for health and fitness with you and to interact with you all, I love answering your questions, if you have anymore please comment below ! 💪🏾💪🏾If you haven't already read women's health go and grab your copy to steal some of the routines that I do to get my abs in the gym (and at home)... sometimes I'm a lazy worker outter 😂 but I try and do at least a little bum and tum exercise every day... This morning I did 30 sit ups with my feet tucked under the mirror listening to Eminem, hahahaha I'm such a weirdo! 📝More importantly I feel very privileged to be a part of the 'in shape my shape issue' which helps highlight that health is not a one size fits all policy ! After all I'm only 5 ft, and I NEVER thought I'd be able to be on the cover of a magazine 🤓 Proving that anything is possible with a bit of will power and change in direction. HOWEVER please remember I don't exercise for likes, I do it for life, and the way it makes ME feel, so you should do the same ✋🏾. A special thanks to editor @c_l_sanderson for making it all happen. #UNEDITED
