TV star Zara insisted she’s ‘getting stronger every day’ as she tracked her fitness progress on Instagram.
‘Good morning everyone! Here’s a few unfiltered pics of my progress. I can see my abs are poppin more since I upped my protein intake’, the former government adviser captioned her posts.

Detailing her healthy weight gain, the blonde bombshell added: ‘The scales have actually gone up 1.5kg but I’m not concerned at all because my body composition is changing.
‘I never used to get enough protein but I’m currently working really hard to make sure I get 120g a day at LEAST! Sometimes 150g :).’
Last month, Zara revealed being around gym bunnies has certainly had an effect on her as she has lost weight in nine months.
The Essex beauty added she had been listening to Louise’s advice and had stopped counting calories in favour of tracking her macros, which involves analysing the macronutrients – grams of protein, fat and carbohydrates – in her diet.

Alongside a video of herself now and some swimsuit pictures from last year, Zara penned: ‘Almost 2 stone down!!!! can’t believe how far I’ve come looking at old pics. Goooo me!!!!!!’
Responding to questions from fans, she stated that she now works out four times a week, has dropped from 68kg to 57kg, and took nine months to reach her goal – allowing two months over November and December.
The reality star added in her Stories: ‘What I’ve started doing recently is not really tracking my calories just more looking at my macros.
‘If you want to get in good shape, I’ve always believed you can’t do something half heartedly, you have to put everything into it.’
