A Gal With a Plan:
Véronique started hitting the weights at age 17, but wanted to add some structure to her routine, so a friend recommended a coach who created a program and meal plan for her. Véronique knew nothing about competing in fitness competitions until her coach brought it up. When she decided to try a show in 2009, she took first place and hasn’t stopped since.
When it comes to her life partner, Véronique needs an equal – someone who lives a fit lifestyle just like her. “I need someone who trains or is athletic,” she says. Mission accomplished. Véronique and her boyfriend, Antony, train together. “He doesn’t train with me like I’m a girl. He pushes me like I’m one of the guys.” She’s helped him along the way, too, and after seven years together, he’s a clean eater to boot! Now, they teach their kids, ages six and four, to follow in their healthy footsteps.
In the Kitchen:
Véronique swears by the Eat-Clean Diet® series for delicious, clean variety. When cooking for her family, she serves up this favorite from The Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook for comfort-food goodness without the guilt.
