WHAT SHOULD I DO

To banish your muffin top, try a side plank with a crunch on your upper leg, says prominent personal trainer Nadya Fairweather (u-shape.co.uk).

Slide the forearm and lower foot onto the side plank. Upper arm up, body and legs in a straight line, press your butt so that your hips point forward slightly and promote this straight posture.

Raise your upper leg, pull your knee into your body like a crunch, and stretch your leg out again. Aim for as many as possible for 20 seconds, then turn to the other side and repeat the process. Build up to eight sets (four on each side). This can also be done with the lower leg bent, using your knee instead of your foot as a base.

To reduce your muffin top, you should do some sensible food changes to get nutrients without sugar, says nutritionist Shona Wilkinson (shona wilkinson.com).

For breakfast, choose scrambled eggs and grilled tomatoes on toast instead of cereal. Scrambled eggs give you a great source of protein and keep you full longer.

An oat cake and nut butter instead of cookies are a great snack. Two cookies have about 180 calories. An oat cake with nut butter has about 110 calories.

A smoothie is a great way to get lots of nutrients and fill them up. Make three quarters of your smoothie vegetables; The last quarter can be treats like berries, honey, nuts and seeds, as well as peanut butter.
