7 waistline tips

Not prepared by me but a lovely friend

I try to avoid snacking it spikes my blood sugar. If I’m hungry I usually reach for a few slices of smoked salmon, bresaola is my new fav and walnuts.


I’ve reduced my sugar intake for obvious reasons. Don’t get me wrong I still tuck into a slice or two of carrot cake or dark chocolate with chilli. Not at the same time and not every day.


I’m all for moderation and enjoyment besides I can’t drink as much as I did in my younger days. I have no plans to give up red wine or Veuve any time soon.

Strength training

I include more body weight and strength workouts. Helps build muscle in turn keeps my fat at bay. A few extra sit ups, squats, lunges and crunches never go amiss.

New workout or sports gear is always a good incentive for me.


I’ve upped my protein helps retain muscle. Research shows protein generally increases satiety.


Eating like I did in my twenties is not the best idea. I suppose if I was clubbing all night I still could, clearly I’m not! I eat less carbohydrates. I’m not a good cook, salads and fish are my go to plus I like good rye breads.

move more

I work from home so when nature calls I run to the loo upstairs instead of using the one downstairs. Also having a bottle of water in my kitchen forces me to leave my desk to refill my glass. All movement counts!
