Statistician turned YouTube star Chloe Ting, who has gained more than eight million subscribers with her at-home fitness videos, shared the meals she eats to maintain her svelte physique.
The 34-year-old, who is from Melbourne but living in Los Angeles, posted a video on June 8 detailing the four meals she swears by for a flat stomach.
For breakfast she starts with the Mediterranean dish shakshuka, a dish combining poached eggs in a sauce of tomatoes, olive oil, peppers, onion and garlic, and commonly spiced with cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper and nutmeg.

She also added harissa seasoning before dipping gluten-free bread into the delicious protein-enriched concoction.
When it came time for lunch she fried a piece of salmon before placing it on a bed of dutch cream potatoes – because they only require a ‘tiny’ amount of butter to make them taste velvety and rich.
Her afternoon snack is more adventurous than a typical protein bar or smoothie, with Chloe instead putting together an ombre panna cotta.
‘I try not to eat a whole dessert after dinner because mixing all different foods like that will cause indigestion. So instead I’ll have a little bit before as a snack and a little bit after,’ she said.

To top her day off dinner is vegan sweet sesame tempeh with vegetables like midnight blue potatoes, eggplant, capsicum, squash and zucchini for a carbohydrate hit
She said it’s high in protein because it’s only made from almond milk and gelatin, with a sprinkling of vanilla essence and berries.

Chloe is best known for her workout videos, which have helped hundreds of people lose weight and get in better shape.

Her fanbase is extremely loyal and many post ‘transformation’ portraits to social media, crediting her for helping them achieve their goals (left, week one, and right, week three)
According to Social Blade, a website that tracks YouTube creators and approximates how much money they earn, Chloe has gained 1.8million followers, more than 170million views and potentially $887,000 in ad revenue in the past month alone.
Home workout videos are one of the few fitness sublets booming in the face of the global pandemic, as typical gyms and studios struggle to open amid social distancing restrictions.
Having joined YouTube only five years ago at the age of 29, Chloe is eager to make her mark on the platform, and is the sixth most watched channel created by an Australian.

Home workout videos are one of the few fitness sublets booming in the face of the global pandemic, as typical gyms and studios remain closed to stop the spread of COVID-19
One of her most popular ab-focused video features 16 different exercises which are all completed within 30 seconds. After every two exercises are finished you get a 10 second break.
It involves reverse crunches, a Spider-man plank, Russian twists, a plank with hip dips and an up and down plank, all of which ‘burn’ the abdominal region and help you achieve a tighter core.
If you complete Chloe’s ab video and pair it with her ‘hourglass’ booty video the 34-year-old claims you’ll be well on your way to achieving a cinched waist and Jessica Rabbit-style body in 30 days.
The glute workout, which is only 15 minutes long, features a side plank abduction, leg circles, donkey pulses and fire hydrant kicks.
Much of their gratitude comes from the simple fact that Chloe has never tried to ‘sell’ her workouts, always uploading them for free on YouTube

For those women who might be worried the exercises will ‘bulk’ up their thighs, Chloe begins the video by reassuring them that the movements only create a tighter posterior.
While her speciality in isolation might be workout videos Chloe is not a registered personal trainer, something she addresses in the description box of every video.
‘When following any of my videos please take precaution to exercise in a safe environment and I highly suggest seeing a health and fitness professional to give you advice on your exercise form and dietary needs,’ she said.
‘Every person is unique and there is no one size fits all solution to health or fitness. I am not a medical professional and your health and safety is the utmost importance.’
Many of the exercises she reenacts are ‘well-known’ in the fitness industry, and therefore the majority of her viewers will know how to perform them with correct form.

And she’s careful not to incorporate moves that aren’t actually proven to target weight loss or sculpting.
‘I feel like in my field, like in fitness, or in health, you kind of need to read journal articles, like health journal articles, or fitness,’ she told Whimn in 2019.
‘Every fitness program I put out there takes me weeks to plan and actually practice them just to make sure the routine makes sense.’
Her fanbase are extremely loyal and enjoy posting their ‘transformation’ portraits to social media, crediting her for helping them achieve their goals.

Is Boris about to make Charles Moore – a pro-hunting, anti-licence fee Brexiteer – new BBC chairman?
It would be the BBC‘s worst nightmare made real – a fox-hunting, Old Etonian Brexiteer being appointed its chairman on a platform of abolishing the licence fee.
The Mail on Sunday understands that Charles Moore, the former editor of The Daily Telegraph and The Spectator, is Downing Street‘s favoured choice to take over at the Corporation when Sir David Clementi’s three-year term expires in February.
It would be a provocative option even by the standards of Boris Johnson‘s No 10: Lord Moore, 63, is a vehement critic of the Corporation’s Left-wing ‘woke’ values – and objects to its guaranteed £4 billion-a-year income from the fee.
In 2010, he was fined £262 for not possessing a licence, having donated the equivalent sum to charity in protest at the BBC’s refusal to sack Jonathan Ross for making prank calls with comedian Russell Brand to the actor Andrew Sachs.
BBC staffers will be hoping that No 10 plumps for one of the names lower down the Government’s shortlist: both former Culture Secretary Nicky Morgan and former Chancellor George Osborne are pro-Remain liberals who would represent the business-as-usual option.
The Mail on Sunday understands that Charles Moore, the former editor of The Daily Telegraph and The Spectator, is Downing Street’s favoured choice to take over as BBC chairman
The other serious candidate, combative current affairs presenter Andrew Neil, is more likely to secure a new on-screen role.
Relations between the BBC and No 10 have been fraught since last year’s Election, with Downing Street saying the Corporation spoke only to a pro-Remain metropolitan bubble.
It prompted a temporary boycott of flagship news programmes such as Radio 4’s Today, and led to the acceleration of its plans to ‘whack’ the £157.50-a-year fee by decriminalising its non-payment.
Tim Davie took up the poisoned chalice of being the BBC’s new director-general this month.
Earlier this year, Lord Moore, who was Mr Johnson’s boss when the Prime Minister worked for the Telegraph, wrote that the BBC could ‘not carry on as before’, saying: ‘It is essential to understand that technological and generational change has already destroyed the BBC’s century-old ‘wider still and wider’ doctrine.
‘It is simply not possible for it to dominate all fields any longer. The BBC must start to decolonise. It needs Government help to do this in a dignified manner – more like British imperial decline than like the fall of the Soviet Union.’
He described the BBC’s bias as ‘not chiefly party political (though it is certainly anti-Tory). It is politico/cultural – woke, pro-Remain, credulously green, anti-market, obsessed with issues connected with ‘diversity’, yet itself not truly diverse at all… if you had watched only the BBC in 2016, it would have come as an almost total shock to you when 17.4 million people voted Leave’.
Most chillingly for BBC staff, he added: ‘The greatest single wrong on which the BBC rests is the licence fee. It is an offence to freedom and a poll tax for anyone with a television (and, nowadays, a computer or mobile phone). Non-payers, almost always poor, clog the magistrates’ courts.’
Nor will Lord Moore have endeared himself to most BBC staff by suggesting last year that actress Olivia Colman was a poor choice to play the role of the Queen in the Netflix drama The Crown because she had a ‘distinctly Left-wing face’.
Despite being described as ‘the incarnation of intellectual Conservatism’, Moore, who wrote an acclaimed biography of Margaret Thatcher, comes from a family of Liberal Party members, only switching to the Tories after graduating from Cambridge.
Sir David Clementi’s three-year term at the head of the Corporation expires in February
But he displayed flashes of his liberal roots in 2001 with a signed editorial in the Telegraph which argued in favour of hunting, pornography and the legalisation of cannabis.
He converted to Roman Catholicism following the Church of England’s decision to allow the ordination of women as priests in 1992.
Lord Moore – an expert on parsonages who was nicknamed Lord Snooty by Private Eye – was critical of David Cameron’s efforts to modernise the Tory Party and failure to address the inefficiencies of the National Health Service, which he described as ‘a terrible organisation’.
Father-of-two Moore, whose wife Caroline is a former English don at Cambridge, attracted criticism five years ago when he questioned whether Labour leadership contenders Yvette Cooper and Liz Kendall had ‘got the looks for a leadership contest’, adding: ‘There is an understanding that no leader – especially, despite the age of equality, a woman – can look grotesque on television and win a General Election.’
He has described being Mr Johnson’s boss at the Telegraph as ‘a nightmare’, because he was always ‘so late – and I mean terribly late – with his copy’.
Lord Moore has also marvelled at Mr Johnson’s ability to bounce back from repeated scandal and setbacks. A Government source said: ‘Charles would shake things up, which is exactly what the BBC needs.’

Sir Simon Stevens is poised to step down as NHS chief executive
Sir Simon is understood to be in discussions about leaving his position as the chief executive of NHS England early next year, with Dido Harding the head of the Government’s controversial test and trace programme, the early favourite to succeed him.
The planned move, at a time when the health service is going through the most demanding period in its history, will spark speculation that he is another casualty of the Whitehall revolution launched by No 10 adviser Dominic Cummings, which has seen a number of senior mandarins – including former Cabinet Secretary Sir Mark Sedwill – leave their jobs.
Sir Simon Stevens, pictured, is poised to step down as head of the NHS within the next few months – as the shake-up of public jobs under Boris Johnson’s Government continues apace
Last night a senior Government source said: ‘Simon has been doing the job since 2014, which is longer than most of his predecessors, and talks are under way about a new role in the public sector.’
Sir Simon, 54, has been friends with Mr Johnson since their time together at Oxford University, where he helped secure Mr Johnson’s election as president of the Oxford Union.
From 1997 to 2004 Sir Simon acted as an adviser to Tony Blair’s government, including three years in the No 10 policy unit.
David Cameron said he recruited him to run the health service because he ‘knows more about NHS problems and market solutions than any man alive’.

PETER HITCHENS: Can’t we put the Johnson Junta in a nice rest home?
Months ago, I predicted that we would all come to hate the narrow, bossed-about new life the Government wants to force us to live. I was wrong.
Most people have far too readily accepted limits to their lives which the world’s tyrannies would once have hesitated to impose on their citizens.
Well, have you had enough yet? Because the Johnson Junta has only one tool in its box. That tool is restriction.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson is pictured during a visit to the Jenner Institute in Oxford. Most people have far too readily accepted limits to their lives which the world’s tyrannies would once have hesitated to impose on their citizens
And it has only one aim, one that has never been achieved by any state in the history of the world – the total suppression of a coronavirus. Who would have thought that the rule of clowns would be so unfunny?
But it now looks as if this will go on for ever, unless we can somehow lead these people away to secluded rest homes where kindly nurses can indulge their wild power-fantasies with soothing repetitions of ‘Yes, dear’, cold compresses and cups of Ovaltine. It is certainly increasingly dangerous for them to be out and about.
Take the Health Secretary, Mr Matthew Hancock. I know I have laughed at him in the past as a sort of crazy prep-school headmaster raging at his tiny pupils. But for goodness sake, the man is a Cabinet Minister, and he has real power over us.
He can smash up your business, make you stay at home, part you from your nearest and dearest at the ends of their lives, destroy your wedding plans, wreck your education, ruin your holiday, take away your job, set the police on you for refusing to wear a pro-Government badge across half your face. He can and he does.

And he has taken leave of the truth. On Friday morning, Mr Hancock said that the number of hospitalisations for Covid is doubling every seven to eight days.
Now, ‘hospitalisations for Covid’ is a slightly tricky figure. It may well be affected by the Government’s endless futile, frantic hunt for signs of a disease which has largely vanished from among us, and whose main symptom is that you feel just fine, thank you.
Deaths, a figure very hard to massage, are low and remain low after a long fall from their peak on April 8. People must at all costs be distracted from this fact.
I have to wonder about the hospital admission figures, given the slipperiness of the Government throughout this episode. Could it be that people who have tested positive for Covid in one of Mr Hancock’s vast trawls, but who go into hospital mainly for other reasons, get added to this total?
I wouldn’t be a bit surprised. Could it be that our hospitals are being encouraged to admit mild cases for observation, which they would previously have sent home? Who knows? Just guessing.
But then we come to the hospitalisation figures. Yes, they have edged up a bit since mid-August. But bear in mind that in March they were regularly more than 2,500 a day.
On August 1, the total of Covid hospital admissions in England was 50. On August 8 it was 78. On August 15 it was 38. On August 22 it was 25. On August 29 it was 52. On September 5 it was 94. On September 12 it was 143. This is hardly an established pattern.
Now, I know, because the Health Department told me, that if you took a different and much shorter date range (August 24, 41; August 31, 52; September 7, 84; September 14, 172) you could – sort of – back up their claim. I’d have thought ‘every seven or eight days’ meant over a far longer period than that. ‘Every’ is a powerful word.
But, as I said to the Ministry spokesperson who manfully tried to persuade me that his boss’s claim of hospitalisations doubling every week had been honest, it seems to me to be unscrupulous panic-mongering, which would shame a banana republic.
Sensible Coventry, refusing to let itself be browbeaten or cajoled by the slick, nasty lobby for e-scooters.
These things are dangerous, especially to pedestrians, and it is absurd to pretend that they are healthy (no exercise) or green (battery power comes from power stations).
Always remember the case of Isabelle Albertin, pianist at the Paris Opera for 30 years, left unable to play after one of these jolly horrors smashed into her, breaking two bones in her arm. Ban the nasty things.
The new ITV production of The Singapore Grip, starring Georgia Blizzard, above, is – like so many of these dramas – a moving museum
Glamorous Georgia… and another costume drama to sneer at
If we can have Shakespeare in modern dress, then it is time we had the British imperial era in modern dress.
The new ITV production of The Singapore Grip, starring Georgia Blizzard, is – like so many of these dramas – a moving museum.
It is a procession of double-breasted suits, double-breasted cars and flying boats. Its production must have used up about a ton of bright red lipstick and enough cigarettes to give cancer to a small town.
And of course there are swing bands, playing away as the Japanese approach. So we can all sneer at the bigoted attitudes of the distant, alien people who float through this remote world.
Actually they were pretty much like us, following the political fashions of the times as we follow the fashions of our own. And one day others will portray us with the same disdain.
Businessman Simon Dolan’s badly needed court case against the Government’s unlawful rule by decree has been postponed yet again, because one of the Government’s lawyers has gone on holiday.
Yes, really. All I can say is, it wouldn’t have happened to Gina Miller’s case.
Axe looms for a dusty little attic of Empire
Like most sensible residents of Oxford, I have kept quiet about what was until recently the most wonderful museum in the world, the Pitt Rivers.Half its crazy charm came from the fact that hardly anyone could find it during its brief opening hours. On a silent winter afternoon it was a dimly-lit feast for the imagination and an unbeatable evocation of the era of exploration and wonder. Is it ‘racist’? Only to racists.
A man-trap from a 19th Century English estate hardly proclaims the benefits of Western civilisation. It is really just an attic of Empire.The wonderful James Fenton wrote a witty poem about it, saying it was where ‘myths go when they die’.
We feared that publicity –which has lately come to it in books and TV dramas – would doom it. And now this has happened. A new boss has got rid of the Shrunken Heads. Who knows how long the totem pole, the man-trap and the spring-gun will now survive?
2-metre farce gives us the measure of Boris
The quackery of the regulations imposed on us knows no bounds.
The British Weights and Measures Association, a fine body which defends our familiar, human yards and pounds against the chilly, bureaucratic imposition of metres and kilos, has uncovered a fascinating detail of how the ‘two-metre’ rule was arrived at. Official guidance was that one metre (just over 3ft 3in) would be enough.
Expert Professor Robert Dingwall has revealed in a little-publicised interview that a senior public health specialist explained to him: ‘We knew it was one metre but we doubled it to two because we did not think the British population would understand what one metre was and we could not trust them to observe it so we doubled it to be on the safe side.’
I should stress that Prof Dingwall is quoting someone else here and is not the author of these contemptuous words. I asked Prof Dingwall to identify the speaker, but he wouldn’t, though it is plain it is someone pretty well-known.
You also see here the Johnson Government’s crabby reluctance to use traditional British measures – which Mr Johnson claims to like.
