In fact, just two years ago she piled on the pounds after turning to food for comfort.
“I was living in Guildford in England. Honestly, I was miserable there, constantly homesick and for the first three months food was my only comfort,” she said.
“It didn’t take long for me to realise my clothes no longer fitted, I didn’t feel confident or comfortable with myself.”
“I knew I had to do something so I got myself a personal trainer who introduced me to weight training,” she added.
“I thought I was in good enough shape and quite fit but the 12 weeks changed my body to a completely different level.”
“I trained harder than ever, battled with sweet cravings and forced myself to the gym ”
Despite her incredible figure, Caragh, who is signed by modelling agency rippedmodels.co.uk, admits that she still has insecurities about the way she looks.
“Growing up I always had insecurities, I still do,” she said. “I think as a female it is difficult as role models consist of beautiful models and celebrities. In school weight and diet was always a topic of conversation.”
But the inspiring fitness fanatic says that building her muscles is helping to build her confidence levels too.
She said: “There are days now where I love how I look and I am really happy, I feel lean and muscular.
“But then there are days where I can be incredible negative where I pick at aspects of my body.”
“I am learning to deal with the bad days. Sometimes I wonder if I will ever be happy with my body as I know I will always want more and strive to look better.
“At the moment I love my arms and I am lucky that when I tighten up my diet my abs can appear quite quickly but then I struggle to lose fat around my hips and legs.”
“I love that now I think about how much I can squat and how many chin ups I can do rather than what size dress I am wearing.”
“On occasion I can fall off-track and have several bad days in a row but I have learned over the years, there is no point beating yourself up over it. It’s life.”
“The feeling of achievement and the changes to you both physically and mentally are totally worth it.”
2. How do you get/maintain a six-pack like yours?
“You can do as many sit-ups, crunches and oblique twists as you like but if your diet is not on track your abs will not exist.
“I stuck to a strict diet plan for 12 weeks and my abs appeared, I trained away as normal actually doing minimal ab work.
“Maintaining abs is another thing all together, it’s actually really hard.
“At the moment I try to avoid tempting foods, limit stress in my life (as this elevated cortisol which stimulate fat storage around the abdominal area), I break up my work outs and do some high intensity exercises and most importantly I build in a treat meal once a week to help fight off those cravings.”
