Five ways to beat bloating
If you've experienced bloating and can't work out exactly what causes it, I feel your pain. I used to suffer from terrible bloating, to the point where I'd look pregnant. It would take at least 3 days to properly settle and go down. Not cool, especially when a modelling job would pop up at the same time. Over the years,...
Lilian Dikmans, Beating jet lag, fly like a pro
As a person who travels often, I have spent numerous hours on long haul flights. I love travelling, but lengthy plane trips across multiple time zones can really mess with your body. If you have the luxury of flying business or first class, you will most likely recover well. But travelling economy, cramped into a small seat for 14-plus...
Coffee before a workout
If there is one thing that I need before training, it's a black coffee. I've been doing it for years and honestly feel like it helps me go that little bit harder. There are varying views on coffee consumption, with many people cutting it out during detoxes. But as a pre workout tool, I find it beneficial. Before a workout As...
Clean protein bars - Real Food Healthy Body
It is hard to argue with the convenience of a protein bar for a post-workout hit of protein. However, so many commercial varieties sold in stores come with a host of undesirable ingredients. Cheap fillers, artificial sweeteners and poor quality protein blends tend to be the norm. Some brands are better than others, and if you check the ingredient list...

There are times when eating out is for pure enjoyment and anything goes. There are also times when you need to eat something healthy on the run to fuel your body. I have previously written about how I eat to maximise health and wellbeing. Most of the time, it's easiest when you can cook for yourself. However, I often find...
Lilian Dikmans Muay Thai training
Recovery is an important part of any training regime. Ask any professional athlete and they will most likely agree. Even if you're not an athlete but train regularly and want to get the most out of your sessions, recovery cannot be neglected. Quality sleep, stretching and proper nutrition are all things that I try to maintain as best I can....
Lilian Dikmans
Earlier this year, I was introduced to a new Australian brand of magnesium oil called Salt Lab. I shot their launch campaign with fellow Australian model Elyse Knowles and in the process, also got to test out the product. I hadn't taken magnesium as a supplement before the shoot. However, I had eaten a lot of food made with magnesium-rich...
Lilian Dikmans, juice cleanse while training
There is a lot of hype around doing a juice cleanse as a way to 'detox' your body. But is it really necessary? Mention a juice cleanse and you will likely encounter a lot of opinions. Some people swear by them, others dismiss them as unnecessary because "that’s what your liver is for". Then there are are those who claim...
Lilian Dikmans, keeping model body ready with Muay Thai
There was a time when models simply didn’t eat to maintain their 'model body'. However, in recent times, a model body that is more athletic and toned has gained popularity. For me, this is a welcome change as I prefer to keep myself fit, healthy and well-fuelled through proper diet and exercise. It’s no surprise that modelling work requires a body...
