Chloe Ting’s Diet
Ting’s diet is high in vegetables and low in junk food. Virtually everything she eats has to contain vitamins or other essentials like fiber. Some of her staples include oatmeal for breakfast, salmon and a salad for lunch, and a shrimp stir fry for dinner. Her diet varies based on her goals. If she’s looking to slim down, she’ll add in more fiber. To define her abs, she’ll cut out sugar and salt. To reduce bloat, she’ll have mung beans. She drinks 3 liters of water a day to flush out toxins.
- Medium Fat 30% 30%
- Medium Carb 40% 40%
- Medium Protein 40% 40%
The most important step of Ting’s diet is her commitment to healthy eating. She has vegetables at both lunch and dinner every day. The fiber and healthy fats she eats fill her up and curb cravings.
Get Those Vitamins
Ting starts her day with a nutrient blast of vitamin C and digestive powder mixed with water to get things moving.
Divide & Conquer Overeating
Ting recommends measuring portions so that you’re less tempted to overeat.
Spice It Up
Ting eats clean, but that doesn’t mean her meals are boring. She’ll use lots of spices like cinnamon, cilantro, red pepper, and lime to add flavor to her meals.
It’s Not All Veg
When Ting is feeling a hankering for something besides salad, she’ll treat herself to an afternoon snack of fruit (dates are a fave) and dark chocolate.

Chloe Ting’s Workout Routine
A K.I.S.S. Plan
Ting doesn’t think it’s necessary to use lots of equipment or spend hours at the gym every day. She has a high-intensity routine that quickly get her body into fat-burning mode.
Shake It Up
Ting varies her routine based on her fitness goals. She’ll do more cardio if she’s looking to get lean, or add in extra bodyweight exercises when she wants to build muscle.
Make It Doable

Chloe Ting’s Supplements
Chloe Ting’s Lifestyle
Ting stresses the importance of sleep. Inadequate sleep releases the hormone cortisol which zaps energy, making you want to eat more, especially junk food. Quality sleep restores your body and gives you energy to get through the day.
Ting was still working as a statistician when she launched her YouTube channel.
Ting was born in Brunei, the Malaysian side of the island of Borneo in Southeast Asia. Brunei is a rich country thanks to its oil deposits. Her current home of Singapore is also a rich island due to its extensive banking and finance sectors.
Home Sweet (Rental) Home
Ting is still renting her apartment, a sunny 2-story, but to her it feels like home. She films her workout videos there and rotates (fake) plants and flower vases to make the setting look different. Her one real plant is a peace lily that doesn’t look so hot.
Ting converted her linen closet into a storage space for clothes because she only owns 2 sets of sheets but she has dozens of shorts and leggings. Ting’s walk-in closet, which contains street clothes, is fairly empty.

‘This is like a house full of mirrors…I basically should be selling mirrors at this point.’

‘I don’t think it’s too bad.’
