Strengthening the core, glutes and hamstrings.

With even the simplest exercise it’s important for the body to be correctly aligned for the exercise to be targeting the muscles properly.
Portion control is important when making how you eat a lifestyle choice not a diet.
A smaller portion styled attractively on a small plate will make you feel you’ve still eaten well and satisfied.
Parma ham with fresh figs and green pesto ( basil, pine nuts, garlic and olive oil) dressing and salad leaves.
When you fancy comforting warming carb-type food instead try a healthy version that nourishes with the warmth coming from chillies and spices rather than starchy or sugary carbs.
This is a Thai prawn Laksa with broccoli, basil leaves, pal choi, a few rice noodles, big fat juicy prawns in a thick coconut broth flavoured with chillies, and Thai spices including lemongrass, galangal, fish sauce, coriander and a pinch of palm sugar etc.
Filling, warming and healthy.
Hot water and lemon first.
Avocado on sourdough toast (complex carbs)
Poached eggs ( protein)
Watercress ( iron)
A single Espresso coffee (better with food than on an empty tum as it affects your own natural energy resources)
