'I totally believe you are what you eat,' shares Yasmin Karachiwala.

The fitness trainer believes that healthy eating should be a lifestyle and not just a quick fix.

'I am going to be 50 this year and I'm proud to say I've never been prescribed a nutritional supplement by any doctor.'

Her secret is simple. 'I make sure I eat my share of vegetables, protein and good fats every day.'
