BOOTCAMP

Vicky Hitchens - 07779 646945 www.fatlossbootcampessex.co.uk

What is a Muffin Top? A muffin top is that layer of fat that 'spills' over the top of your waistband. Someone with a muffin top won't have a particularly fat bottom or legs – just an annoying bulge over their jeans waistband. How does this happen? TOO MANY CARBS! That ‘Muffin Top’ is DIRECTLY LINKED to your carbohydrate intake. Contrary to popular belief, the body actually WANTS to use fat as energy. However doing anything that causes insulin levels to rise rapidly, causes the body to transfer blood sugar to the fat stores and guess where insulin loves to store fat?? You guessed it! Around your waist! It's REFINED carbohydrates we need to AVOID AT ALL COSTS. Things like cakes, sweets, pasta, bread, rice and YES you will need to take it easy on wholemeal versions too, these are better but still not great for people who struggle with 'the muffin top' However it’s alcohol that is the biggest cause of ‘muffin top syndrome’ Alcohol is simply liquid sugar that the body struggles to deal with = beer belly anyone?! This is the technical reasoning why: The body absorbs all refined carbs as quickly as it would a tablespoon of sugar, which means that the body is forced to release insulin to get all that sugar out of your blood stream. These surges of insulin, repeated over and over again, lead to a condition called insulin resistance. The cells that normally respond to insulin get desensitised. The pancreas then has to produce more and more insulin to metabolise all that carbohydrate. To make matters worse, these large surges of insulin tend to overshoot the mark, and more is released than is

needed. This then causes temporary low blood sugar, which sends your brain a signal that it's time to eat again. One biscuit is never enough is it?!

Ready to lose your muffin top?

1.

Get your ‘good carbs’ from eating LOADS & LOADS of green vegetables. Eat them 3-4 times a day. Watercress, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, spinach, sprouts are fab for burning belly fat.

2.

Fruit is very healthy, but it is high in simple carbs. Berries are the best fruits to choose: Blueberries, raspberries, blackberries are good as berries have lots of anti-oxidants due to their thin skin.

3.

Low fat / low sugar foods DO NOT help you lose weight. They are loaded with sweeteners which will still cause the same insulin spike as sugar does. AVOID low fat foods if you want to lose your muffin top!

4.

If it comes in a packet don't eat it. Processed / packaged = added sugars, sweeteners & additives which will all make your waistline bigger!

5.

A lean source of protein like chicken, turkey or fish and plenty of veggies is one of the best meals you can have to reduce your waistline. For your Free ‘7 Day Body Transformation’ eBook including a 7 day food plan, recipes & the 5 best fat burning exercises visit our website:

Essex Gardening Section 0

Healthy Soil Building healthy soil is one of the most important things you can do for your garden, and the soil in this corner of Essex can use all the help it can get. A healthy garden starts with healthy soil, you can spend a small fortune on plant food but if your soil is poor these expensive feeds have little or no effect. The very best way to feed your plants is by improving the soil. Good soil is a warm brown in colour, of a crumbly texture and have a rich smell about it, think of the aroma of spring in the woods, that’s the smell of good fertile earth. In our modern society we have an unhealthy dislike of creepy crawlies and bacteria but your soil loves and needs all of these things. When you get down and dirty with a handfork in your beds you should see a whole world of creatures, when you turn the soil you should see a generous amount of worms and other life, if these little critters won’t live in your soil you can bet your life plants won’t like it either. Now that Autumn is approaching if your soil isn’t all it should be you should be thinking about applying a good 3-4 inch Mulch, we use a very good Bark

Mulch on our clients gardens, the mulch works in 3 ways, firstly it acts as a slow release food, secondly it helps the soil to retain water which is very important for the sandy soil we are cursed with here in the Southend area and it also breaks down slowly to give the soil some fibre and also provides a home for the millions of microorganisms that your soil needs. Check out your local garden centre or B&Q/Homebase for small amounts of mulch or we can deliver Ton bags for larger areas, for a small fee we will place it in your borders too! This year don’t throw away all the leaves that you sweep up, place them in a black sack and put them behind your shed, next year once the leaves have rotted you will be rewarded with an excellent mulch for your garden free of charge. Until next time ...
