As a realist, Heidi believes M&M’s can fit into a healthy eating style along with red peppers, red meat, broccoli, and fresh fruit and recognizes that fitness has to be a regular part of the daily routine to maintain and achieve her fitness goals – which vary based on what is going on in the rest of her life. Healthy eating and exercise change and evolve as we do.
