DO improve your posture
Lose inches just by standing straight. Imagine a balloon is attached to your head, drawing your head and neck upwards and your shoulders back.
DON’T eat too much
This does not mean you have to graze or eat little and often but it does mean controlling portion size. Eat a medium plateful and avoid seconds.
Swallowing lumps of unchewed food gives you stomach more work, so chew each mouthful until it turns to a paste before swallowing.
DON’T eat air
Most bloating is down to swallowed air. Chewing gum, inhaling cigarette smoke and erratic breathing are guaranteed to make your tummy bloat.
Even if you have regular bowel movements, the colon needs cleansing now and then. For clean insides and a flat tum, have a supper of prune, prune juice or a glass of liver salts occasionally.
