Seventy percent of the word Diet is DIE…

So many girls these days are on diet crazes. I look at the majority of these young women and literally see skin and bone and think WHY!? If you loose any more weight you’ll simply disappear into thin air!!

I admit, I am 4ft11″ and currently weigh just under 8 stone and have previously worried about my weight thinking I will look like a little umpa lumpa if I exceed 8 stone, so like many others I’ve fallen into the diet trap. But unlike most young girls who do, I did my homework.

You can STILL enjoy your favourite foods, you do not need to starve yourself and cut chocolate out of your lives entirely that’s a fucking myth! All you have to do is indulge in a balanced diet and exercise!

Now exercise does NOT mean murdering yourself at the gym a good lengthy walk at a moderate pace STILL burns calories and you won’t be sore all over the next day.

The truth is as long as you’re moving your ass and not shovelling fast food down your throat at every mealtime opportunity you won’t gain weight you’ll maintain it. Which is much healthier than massive weight fluctuations, I’m sure you’ll agree.

Now even though I’ve calculated my BMI as ok and my Body fat percentage as a modest 23% I have a little podge on the tummy region, nothing awful just there, and I admit the muffin top tummy look isn’t a good one so here’s my advice to getting your tummy flat without starving yourself.

1. Eat well
That means hitting all the food groups including carbs just not abusing them. Substituting fruit, nuts and granola yogurts for candies helps you cut your junk intake, if you really don’t know download a fitness app to count calorie intake or consult a dietician.

2. Exercise
It doesn’t matter how well you eat if you’re vegetating on a sofa you kinda have to get your ass up. This as I said earlier doesn’t mean killing yourself on a treadmill walking a longer route home or not taking short bus journeys or simply taking the stairs in buildings over the lift (elevator if you’re American) can really help burn calories.

3. Tone
I do sit ups during the advert break on tv, not excessively, and not even every ad break but I do at least 30 a day to help tone the tummy

4. Enjoy the result
Obviously this will not happen in a day you have to keep this up and to be honest how long it takes depends on your own body.
