Liezel on her body transformation
While some of us haven't seen a gym entrance, Liezel van der Westhuizen has been working out. Hard!
Liezel wowed us all with her body transformation after coming in 3rd place at the Miss Fitness SA Champs that took place in Cape Town on the 27 September. She competed with 100 participants in the swimwear category.
The TV personality, who said she was sometimes called butch, told The Juice that she entered because she wanted to prove a point. "I wanted to show that I'm not a tomboy and that there's something more to me." She said this was also a confidence booster.
Of course, preparing for such a competition takes a lot of hard work and dedication. So, how did she get that body? She said she had to cut down on chocolate and carbs. Her diet, which was seven meals per day, included chicken, steamed vegetables like potatoes and broccoli, tuna, biltong and salads. Liezel also had to to drink two/three litres of water a day.
Her transformation took six/eight weeks. And it was all worth it. She said she really enjoyed the competition. "It was fun. Everyone entered for different reasons. It was nice to challenge myself and do something different."
