If you’re following Solenn Heussaff or Raymond Gutierrez on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed that there’s no shortage of fitness tips and wellness advice on their social feeds.
Alongside Nico Bolzico and Wil Dasovich, Solenn and Raymond are Philam Life's newest ambassadors, tasked to encourage Pinoys to take control of their health. During the insurance brand's press junket, we got to talk to Sos and Mond for some fitspiration.
ICYDK, in an effort to ditch his toxic lifestyle habits, Raymond recently had a total envy-worthy transformation—both physically and mentally. But living better is more than just working out; it’s also how you fuel your body.
We asked Raymond for his go-to baon: “The simpler it is, the better. I don’t want to complicate my life. For lunch, I have grilled salmon or tuna with a piece of steamed and peeled kamote and some vegetables. I like kamote fries because it feels like I’m just eating French fries. For dessert, I need something sweet so I bring fruits. My favorites are pomelo or sliced pineapples.”
However, Raymond never deprives himself. He shared, “When I was doing my 90-day journey, I didn’t cheat at all. Now, it’s not about cheating, eh. I don’t want to use that word. It’s about a balance. If you have a goal and you need to reach it, then I understand that you have to go through drastic measures. These days, I have a glass of wine or a cocktail when I’m at a party or a birthday. I also love sushi from time to time. But I know these little indulgences have consequences, and I know what I have to do after I enjoy.”
Solenn, on the other hand, is a huge fan of Buddha bowls: “Buddha bowls basically consist of three to four vegetables and some type of grain—like quinoa or brown rice—and then you can have protein like minced chicken or salmon. Grill the protein and the vegetables with olive oil and spices. You don’t have to be a good cook. Cook the quinoa or the rice separately. For the sauce, it’s super safe to always go for olive oil and lemon. Lemon is my go-to! And cayenne pepper. I always have cayenne pepper in my bag. When I go to restaurants, I add it to everything. I don’t use too much salt because it retains water. It doesn’t have to be complicated.”
As for her guilty pleasure? Solenn revealed, “I looove croissants!”
