Exercise is essential for both physical and mental health, and it can also contribute to weight loss. Laura “loves” to keep fit and whether it’s cycling or playing tennis, exercise has always been a part of her daily routine.
She said: “You can exercise as much as you like, but unless you follow a really healthy lifestyle and eating plan, then if you want to see results, you’ve got to have a healthy and balanced way of eating.
“There’s no point exercising five days a week and then eating a load of rubbish.
“It’s sort of pointless.
“It’s about what you put into your body as much as what you’re actually doing with it.”
A Place in the Sun star continued: “Sometimes I go for a bike ride with friends or go for a run.
“Weirdly I prefer to run on the running machine.”
Laura also prefers to do other work outs in the gym, such as weights, than going for a walk.
The presenter often exercises in the morning, saying: “It gives me loads of energy and sets me up for the day.”
She highlights that exercise isn’t just about losing weight – it also “makes you feel good”.
“It releases endorphins.
“I would say to make a habit out of it. If you can make it part of your daily routine, once you stop you’ll miss it and you’ll be like, I need to do it, I need to do it,” Laura added.
