Eating out can be difficult when you're trying to stay fit, but Toronto's social media influencers are helping to change that.
Isabel Lahela - a fitness guru with over 156,000 followers on Instagram - is among a group of local Instagram elites who are seriously shaping the way Toronto eats, lives and stays healthy.
A Canadian National Power Lifting Record Holder and National Olympic Weightlifter, Lahela promotes positive body image, self love, and confidence with her followers - and she also happens to have some incredible guilt-free recipes.
As a multi-strength sport athlete and personal trainer, it's safe to say she knows how to stay fit. So how does she manage to keep a healthy diet while living in Toronto - a world leader for drool-worthy and incredibly greasy (but delicious) foods? She's let us in on her favourite clean eating spots.
