Laura's Diet Tips

Many people think that eating or drinking anything other than water right after a workout will make you gain weight. The truth is that if you don't do something to recover, your blood sugar takes a dive and free radicals are released in the blood.

This can not only lead to unhealthy cravings later on but can also damage your skin. So Laura always eats or drinks something replenishing right after a workout. A healthy protein shake, as sold by many fitness centers, is a great idea. Or just look at her recipe below!

Laura's Beauty Tips

This New York model's favorite beauty tip is something we should all take note of. She has always loved her beauty sleep, and a firm believer that your skin can always benefit from more rest.

All cells, including skin cells, regenerate over night. According to Laura, "If you want younger skin, get some rest!"

Another way that Laura keeps her eyes looking young and fresh is to use a highlighting shadow. Just apply an iridescent white or silver color in the inner corners of eyes to brighten them up and make you look years younger!

These delicious sweet potato wedges are low in calories and high in vitamins and fiber. They're also really filling so they're a great diet food. This recipe makes about 2 portions.

1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/gas mark 6
2. Peel the sweet potato and cut into wedges
3. In a bowl, mix together the wedges, olive oil, salt, pepper and the spice of your choice
4. Place the wedges flat on a baking tray lined with foil, and bake for about 25 minutes or until tender and golden

For a little variety, you can do the same with potato, pumpkin, yams, and parsnip.
